MOBILE VA REDUCTION USING NANOFILTRATION

VA_Reduction

Advantages:

  • 30% VA reduction on a single pass, minimum.
  • 1,800 to 4,000 Litres/hour
  • One pass means no internal recirculation.
  • No heat increase.
  • Lower treatment pressure (300 – 600 psi/20 – 40 bars) = lower wine stress
  • Friendly and continuous onsite supervision by skilled operators
  • On-site, small volume processing (60 – 500 Litre batches) – using ‘Sweetspotter’
  • Cost effective – even for lower quality wines.
