WINE, SPIRITS and RTDs

 

We’ve worked with the wine industry for many years. We have built our expertise on the everyday challenges met by winemakers, respecting both the product and the local, national and international regulations.

Our experts have developed specific cleaning and disinfecting programs for the grape reception and pressing equipment. If sanitation usually takes place before the beginning and at the end of the harvest campaign, week-end disinfection programs can be required. It benefits from especially engineered solutions. Scaling on fermentation tanks is fought with combination of detartrating products. Wine stains on porous floors are often difficult to be removed but for the Sopura specific combination of cleaning products. Cleaning and disinfecting programs for filters and bottle fillers present the ideal combination of products, equipment and time for cost efficient sanitation.
