Vogelsang pumps aid wine production

The pumps, by Vogelsang, have been designed to gently pump grapes, grape must and wine.

In the wine industry, rotary lobe pumps from Vogelsang are used in all processes, including transfers between tanks before and after fermentation, storage, clarification, and dispensing of wines and sparkling wines. Due to their steady and vibration-free operation, the pumps hope to avoid vibration and foaming of the wine.

Pumping grapes

The lobe pumps produce the pressure needed to transport the grapes at fewer revolutions per minute, thus producing minimal shearing forces and a better quality of grape must.This way, users can circulate the grape must for longer and achieve a more intense flavor.

Up to a head of about 9 m, Vogelsang pumps are self-priming and are designed for pressures up to 16 bar, with a reversible flow direction. Solid matter up to a size of 90 mm will be pumped without problems. Their space-saving construction means that the pumps be used in tight and difficult to access spaces.
