Explore Sustainable Winery Operations with Trucent at the 2023 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium (January 24-26, Sacramento, CA, Booth #1100)
Chris Clausen, Craft Beverage Industry Manager for Trucent, is looking forward to discussing sustainability later this month at the 2023 Unified Symposium (January 24-26, SAFE Credit Union Convention Center, Sacramento, CA).
“Sustainability is a major focus in winemaking now,” Chris explains. “This is one of the major topics in every conference we attend: sustainability, resiliency, how to use less water, how to reclaim wastewater, how to adapt.”
Chris expects the 2023 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium to continue the trend. This is the largest wine industry conference in North America. With hundreds of booths and tens of thousands of attendees, it’s proven to be a vital industry platform, drawing in and concentrating the collective experience, knowledge, and diversity of the entire industry.
For Trucent, that knowledge and experience is focused on separation and filtration technologies that offer winemakers massive opportunities to improve ROI and increase their sustainability and resilience. Chris is especially eager to introduce more winemakers to the advantages of centrifugation and membrane-based gas management systems.
Let’s Talk Wine Clarification & Centrifugation!
Vertical disk stack centrifuges, like Trucent’s wine-specific CentraSep DW-Series, can be used at every stage in winemaking. When used on the production side, the DW-series’ high-efficiency solids discharge (80 to 85% solids for must, 90 to 95% for wine) means lower waste volumes and less lost product. That same centrifuge can then be deployed again, later in your winemaking process, to clean the organic solids from wastewater, resulting in clean water suitable for irrigation or as the base for cleaning operations.
Meanwhile, membrane-based gas management systems like TruSense give winemakers advanced control over the many dimensions of the flavor and aroma of their wine, and ensure longer shelf life, based solely on gas management. TruSense removes most oxygen, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and acetaldehyde in a single pass (reducing oxygen concentrations by more than 95% and initial carbon dioxide more than 70%).
“For any modern larger scale vineyard,” Clausen explains, “your yield increase and time savings are just huge once you introduce technologies like these. And you also see a big bump in product quality and consistency, while eliminating the need for flocculants, sweeping gas, and other additives.”
Interested in learning about new strategies for increasing the sustainability and resiliency of your winemaking operation? Come chat with Chris and Trucent’s specialists at Booth #1100 on January 25 and 26. They’re eager to share their experience and expertise in using separation technology to maintain healthy winery operations.
