Cooling systems are used with enormous advantages, to keep the right humidity and temperature levels inside wine cellars.
Wine cellars during the whole year or in some periods don't reach a good humidity level and are subject to various problems. A low humidity level is the main factor that causes natural evaporation of wine with the consequent loss of quality and money, not only for the product time and manpower due to the consequent essential re-filling of wine into barrels. Moreover wood barrels are subject to dehydration of their external board structure which compromises the quality and efficiency in same time.
Cooling fog systems resolve naturally and in economic way, all these problems by regulating the humidity in the wine cellars and keeps its temperature. The water sprayed by the system is atomized by special patented nozzles able to produce thin droplets of a diameter smaller than 5-10 microns, which are immediately absorbed
by the air without wetting things and underlying on surfaces.
The results are notable: barrels are kept efficient for longer, preserving the quality of the wood, allowing an excellent production and preventing the natural evaporation of the product. They allow such a costs saving that the system refunds the investment in few months.
Benefits from the implement of fog systems in wine cellars are considerable:
- Increased general productivity of the wine cellar
- Keeping of constant humidity levels
- It reduces the costs of manpower of periodic refilling
- It is economic if compared to other solutions
- Eliminates the dehydration of wood barrels
- It prevents the natural evaporation of the wine
- It helps to keep the right temperature
Barriques must be stored in a place protected from draughts and light. Optimal humidity level oscillates among 65% and the 85%. Under 65%, the risk of dehydration of barrels is very high while over the 85% they could develop fungus and moulds. A humidity level among 80% and 85% allows to reduce dramatically the “wine loss". The entire structure of barrels takes advantage from a right humidity level. To prevent any risk of barrel dehydration and opening of their joints during the storage, it is recommended to avoid the airflow and the excessive ventilation in the wine cellars. With the right humidity level the barriques will feel "ease"!
A modern fog system required by winemakers who desire a greater return both in quantity and in quality for premium wines aged in wood barrels.
LOW COST SYSTEMS
Very low cost of our systems are an important aspect of misting in wine cellars, if compared to other solutions for the climate control. The energy costs are low, simple and fast installations. Systems are supplied in various solutions or in D-I-Y Kits, with the simple solutions of quick couplings. Cooling
systems are designed to operate with very low costs and with a minimum maintenance
