The Gulfstream vinification tool for superior thermovinification from Pera Pellenc

oenoSm’Art
GET THE BEST OUT OF YOUR FRUIT!

This innovative thermovinification process significantly improves the quality of the wines and adapts the type of wine to consumer demand. OEnoSm'art has been developed to meet the needs of users with its versatility.

Testimonial

This is a great step forward for winemakers. Flash Detente technology is now available to cellars with small harvest volumes to process. For many years now, Flash Detente technology has demonstrated its usefulness in producing quality wines adapted to the demands of consumers around the world. With all the elements combined onto mobile skids, they are easy to install in small producers’ facilities and can thus help deliver a good service. OEnoSm’Art is therefore a new winemaking tool which makes Flash Detente technology available to everyone.

HOW IT WORKS


The “Flash Detente” thermovinification process works by quickly heat-treating the grapes at a high temperature, then immediately cooling them by pressure reduction.


1 - HARVEST FEEDING


The harvest pump with a drainage hopper allows the fresh harvest to be fed into the heating system.


2 - HEATING THE HARVEST


The harvest is fed into the exchanger to be heated to 65°C for thermovinification, or to 85°C for Flash Detente.


3 - VACUUM

The heat-treated harvest is continuously fed into the vacuum chamber. This chamber is subjected to a high vacuum, which almost instantly cools the harvest. The steam this generates is condensed. Condensates and drained juices are reintroduced into the pump.

CONTROL

OEnoSm’Art is controlled via an intuitive touchscreen interface which sets all the pump-operation parameters and temperatures.
