ARKIMEDE: The Automatic Wine-making Robot
- an effective and complete sinking of the marc cap,
- an active mixing of the wine press product
- homogenization of the temperature throughout the tank,
- an effective oxygen supply before and during the over pumping cycle.
Our conclusion: ArKimede® optimizes the over pumping process of red wine!
The constant mixing and agitation of the must mass ensures that the berries are completely separated from undesirable by-products such as pomace lumps. Furthermore, they are washed at the end of the working cycle. The cap of the marc can therefore be reformed without creating the geometric shapes found in the winemaking systems used so far.
ArKimede® is also equipped with a Turbo-Oxygenator, which provides complete and effective oxygenation of the air above the pomace layer.
The Turbo Oxygenator, with a blowing capacity of 50 liters of air per second (3000 l / min), is able to exchange air inside the upper part of the tank, above the top of the marc. This is possible both before the over pumping process and during the oxygenation and over pumping process, so that the oxygen also comes into contact with the falling must.
The amount of air introduced into the upper part of the tank (and not directly into the must) guarantees a more natural oxygen supply. This is due to the fact that the air enters the must through the jet of the winemaking robot during the over pumping cycle.
