MOBILE FILTRATION SERVICES
We bring a custom designed system to your winery with no travel or set up fee. We supply friendly, professional operators as well and if you’re considering renting or purchasing, feel free ask us about testing our equipment.
We use a variety of Nanofiltration membranes with different molecular weight cut offs to provide specific treatment to the wine, as opposed to Reverse Osmosis (RO), which remains set. Nanofiltration is gentle on your wine with high efficiency and won’t process your wine at high pressure that heats up your wine which is a promise RO cannot make. This is VA Filtration’s ‘wine first’ belief in action – we’re literally ‘hands off’ as much as possible.
Brett Reduction Breakthrough
After exhaustive testing, in the early part of the decade we developed a membrane perfect for reducing Volatile Acidity and 4EP Brett. This reduces 4EP Brett characters by up to 30% in a single pass, with little or no effect on the wine.
System wise, we believe it’s the gentler the better. All our systems are ‘once-through’, adding no stress to the wine. We also control treatment pressures using gravity fed, specialized pumps wherever possible.
In our VA reduction process, a unique resin minimises the de-acidified permeate’s pH recombining with wine, meaning less wine ‘shock’. A specifically selected media on the permeate side absorbs 4EP without affecting the ethanol, acid and pH.
Years of design and testing have produced a system that gently and efficiently removes VA and 4EP while maintaining the highest wine quality. In other words; fine wine, refined.
