Perfect wine must pre-clarification by flotation
Must pre-clarification via sedimentation before fermentation require extreme long waiting times (usually more than 20 hours).
The principal of must flotation speed up significantly the waiting period and help to optimize the transfer timing from wine most to wine fermentation.
- The must is passed through the Carboflot system accumulated with air or nitrogen and pumped into the tank.
- The gas bubbles move all non-fluid particles form to the top surface of the tank.
- The clear wine, ready for fermentation (usually no filtration necessary) can be pumped out directly into the fermentation tank.
