You are new to wine-making and know nitrogen is used in the process, but you're not sure how it is used?
Nitrogen is critical in the process of wine-making during multiple steps of the operation, and mostly used to remove or keep oxygen out of the process. Pneumatech's line of on-site nitrogen generators are ideal for every step in the process including:
Pressurization: To avoid the supply of oxygen during pressing, the environment of the grapes is saturated with nitrogen.
Inerting: Avoid the supply of dissolved oxygen to the surface of the must by nitrogen inerting
Flotation: Nitrogen microbubbles are injected from the bottom of the flotation tank
Disassembly: The violent injection of nitrogen causes a restructuration of the cap without oxygen supply
Assembly: Homogenize wines, glue or adjuvant without adding oxygen
Inertage: Inert the gaseous skies of the tanks
Transfer Tank: Avoid the supply of oxygen during wine transfers by oxygen inerting
Filtration: Nitrogen injection in the musts or wines before the physical treatment to avoid a supply of oxygen
Stripping: Consists of driving gas or volatile matter into the wine by nitrogen
Deoxygenation: Remove dissolved oxygen by adding nitrogen Decarbonization: Remove dissolved CO2 by adding nitrogen
Barrel Racking: The injection of nitrogen at low pressure in the gaseous sky of the barrel will allow the evacuation of the wine by the cane
Bottling: Avoid dissolved oxygen in wines and headspace by nitrogen inerting
The purity of the nitrogen during wine-making can range from 99.5% to 99.9% depending on which stage you are at in the process. Pneumatech offers a full line of on-site nitrogen generators that offer various purities for all applications including wine-making. You can browse our full line HERE.
The quality and effectiveness of pharmaceutical products is critical to the industry and its' users. To ensure the quality stays intact, nitrogen is used for both packaging purposes and other processes inside of laboratories. Read more...
