Red Hunter Thermovinification Unit

Continuous-feed dual tank thermovinification/flash détente unit for optimal color intensity and stability in red and rosé wine production.

Continuous-feed dual tank thermovinification/flash détente unit for optimal color intensity and stability in red and rosé wine production.

  • Maximizes color intensity with instantaneous extraction of anthocyanins.
  • Higher natural color stability than traditional flash détente systems thanks to available extended reaction times optimizing tannin extraction, preferentially extracting skin tannins over seed tannins.
  • Customizable temperature, time, and vacuum parameters for maximum winemaking flexibility.
  • Immediate inactivation of oxidative enzymes including laccases and polyphenol oxidases.
  • Dual tank system of feeding/homogenization and reaction tanks.
  • Fast heating (less than 30 seconds to reach 85°C).
  • Instantaneous cooling thanks to extreme vacuum flash cooler.
  • On-board buffer tank and integrated heat exchange system allow energy recovery of up to 33% and consistent throughput regardless of which operating settings are chosen.
  • Fully automatic and integrated sanitizing CIP with high water/detergent savings.
  • 12” color operator panel for fully automatic management of all work phases.
