Delta Destemmers

Delta destemmers pride themselves on smooth process. The grapes are introduced through the hopper and can be dejuiced which improves the quality of the destemming process.

Cage hole size can be changed to suit the type of grapes being processed and the destemming paddle shaft can be changed to enable whole bunch destemming or machine harvest destemming. All Delta Destemmers have electronic variable speed to destem at your optimal rate. Please find more information here

 

 


Delta Oscillys
This destemming process operates without beater shaft nor rotative cage. It uses an ample swinging motion of the one or two cages to separate the grapes from the stems by inertia.

Thanks to the inertia effect, there are many advantages:
• Preserved integrity of the berries (and thus limited production of juice and vegetal characters)
• Preserved state of the stems (no break, no grinding up),
• Fully separation of the grapes from the stems
• Elimination of shot berries, verjus, dry grapes, unriped grapes which remains on the stems
Delta Oscillys operate within a throughput range of 3t/h to 20t/h*
* depending on grapes varieties, condition and grapes nature

Delta Pumps

The DP Pumps are a peristaltic pump that can pump must or wine. The Delta DP will pump must smoothly and pump wine gently. The Delta PM pump is a helical rotor pump for smooth transfer of must. Please find more information here

 

Vistalys

Delta Vistalys is a fully automated optical sorting line that will sort machine or hand harvested grapes. It removes any undesirable materials from your grapes that have previously been destemmed. This is essential for the quality of the wine, especially red wine. Please find more information here

Presses

Our oenological knowledge of pressing is an additional guarantee of superior quality and efficiency. Quality wine making involves a series of steps of which pressing is one of the most decisive and difficult to manage.

The pneumatic and automated basked presses represent the essential tools for this process. The large diversity of grape varieties and change in grape quality year to year require a fine, accurate adaption of the process operation to obtain perfect juice and constant quality.
