Vacuum Corking


Four stainless steel prismatic guide studs close the cork to a diameter of 16 mm. Extreme care is taken over the making of the corking head, with a roughness of less than 0.05 microns on the surfaces in contact with the cork. The compression of the cork is slow (105°), with fast fitting of the cork (53°). The studs box is easily extractable to simplify the maintenance and the cleaning operations. All models are standard fitted with vacuum corking. The advantages of this system are as follows: 1) no pressure is created in the bottle when the cork is inserted 2) the oxygen trapped between the wine and the cork is further reduced from 0.25 to 0.08 mg per liter (with a 0.75 lt bottle, filling level 60, and 45 mm cork)
