Wine Fermentation Tanks – The fermentation process that virtually all wineries and vineyards go through can potentially set world-class wines apart from the local brands. It is a process of turning the grape juice derived from the vineyards orchards into alcohol. During the fermentation, process yeast assists in transforming sugars present in the base grape juice to ethanol and carbon dioxide. Speed of the process, temperatures as well as oxygen levels all become mission critical in the creation of all wines and especially the world-class wineries with generations of experience.
Stainless Steel Fermentation Tanks
In recent surveys, it is obvious that with all of the storage materials available to a winery their preferred choice for functionality, production, consistency, and maintenance is the use of stainless steel for all wine storage tanks, fermentation tanks, and bottling resources.
Here are just a few of the primary reasons to select stainless steel fermenter tanks
Cleanliness – stainless steel tanks and vessels are fabricated to the highest food-grade requirements and meet all required regulatory specifications for the storage and processing of wine.
No taste – unlike the historical use of barrels made of oak, a stainless steel container will never change or alter the natural or intended flavor profiles of the wine so they remain intact throughout the fermentation and storage process.
Temperature-controlled – stainless steel vessels allow the winemaker to count on precise temperature controls throughout the fermenting process.
Easily customizable – stainless tanks have great attributes that allow winemaker’s lots of options in configuring their production facilities as needed. The fabrication process allows for the creation of any tank size, shape, or lid to make it easy to create from that to finish the perfect and always consistent quality.
Ease of transport – in the creation, bottling, and transport of the wine it is easy with stainless steel tanks to create a less expensive process and reduce the number of times a lot needs to be transported.
Long Life – Stainless steel is one of the most durable products on the market far exceeding oak barrels, poly, or any other material that could possibly be used. 304 and 316 stainless steel creates long term savings to each of the vineyards for reduced maintenance and replacement.
Eco Friendly – more than 50% of the stainless steel tanks being manufactured are fabricated using recycled steel making the entire process very environmentally conscious
