Red wine tank with mash plunger FD-MT

Rotweinmaischetaucher

Quality is what we are all about!

The immersion of the marc executed by Speidel’s red wine mash plunger has been inspired by the typical manual pushing that is still practised today. Due to the low mechanic pressure the grapes are almost undamaged. This way – and despite the greatest possible extraction of the mash – a low sludge content is achieved.

A reinforced pneumatic cylinder moves the immersion unit up and down. At the moment of the immersion, namely when 'impacting' the marc, two cone-shaped folding wings facing each other put themselves in a flat position and immerse the grapes into the juice.

When moved upwards the folding wings adopt an inclined position and generate a twisting effect of approx. 30 °. This is repeated until the entire marc is fully disintegrated, immersed and drenched with the must.

The immersion and interval times can be pre-selected at your convenience. This grants the winemaker the opportunity to produce individual and complex red wines. The system itself is simple and highly effective: spacious installations that could cause sedimentary depositions or dirt corners are not required.
