Winery Equipment Testimonial

Ryan and I worked together at Justin Winery for five years and have known each other for ten. While at Justin, Ryan was passionately interested in the wine making process, could fix about anything and was totally dedicated to making the winery a success. He has taken that dedication to Vintner Vault and became a major player in the winery supply business in just a few years. Jeff Branco, former VP and Winemaker Justin Winery

Home > Beer Filtration > Centrifuge


Centrifical clarifiers can be employed in a variety of process stages in wineries. The most common application is for must clarification to remove impurities like broken cells, dirt and soil, pesticide residue, bacteria, fungi or grape decay.

They can also be used in the clarification of lees in place of costly lees filters to minimize loss in the pro-duction process.

The centrifuge process may also be employed in the place of filtration to clarify finished wines in prepa-ration for bottling. This includes all forms of still and sparklinig wines.

Another excellant app-lication for a centrifuge is to spin off yeast and large particles after fermentation or in many cases during fermentation to remove yeast and stop the fer-mentation. This application is perfect for the daunting task of stopping the fermentation on desert style wines.
