Turn your traditional tank into an innovative Metodo Ganimede® vinificator

Below you will find a summary of the stages of the process illustrated with an example of upgrade carried out at a leading winery on 1,000 HL capacity tanks.

1) Existing tanks in the wine cellar: 4 upgrades are made to the 1,000 HL tanks.

2) Scaffolding assembly: internal and external scaffoldings are necessary in order to weld safely the diaphragm, bypass valves and any external cooling pockets.

3) Segmented sections of the diaphragm, previously assembled: the segments are assembled at the workshop based on calculations performed on the technical drawing of the tank.

4) Internal welding of the segments to create the funnel-shaped diaphragm: the "funnel" diaphragm is reassembled following an accurate welding process performed by qualified personnel.

5) Welding of the cooling pocket on the plating: if necessary, the tank is thermal conditioned through the application of channels or mantle-shaped pockets, which are welded on the tank cylinder.

6) Installation of the electrical control panel from which it is possible to manage automatically the temperature, opening of the bypasses and the injection of technical gases (macro-oxygenation, CO2 timer control for the pre-fermentative dynamic maceration).

The process ends with a hydraulic test on the vinificator, in order to simulate all the stages that will take place at time of grape harvest.

At the end of the process, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a Metodo Ganimede® vinificator, equivalent, in operation and performance, to a brand new machine!
