GVTEC wine storage & fermentation tanks -
the ideal environment for your
precious creation.

GVTEC tanks provide a climate controlled home for your wine during fermentation, stabilization and storage.

GVTEC tanks are equipped with an oval manway, racking connection, drain valve, sampling valve, cooling gauge board, adjustable legs, top turret and thermometer as standard.

Fermentation, stabilisation and storage tanks - cooled by dimple jackets.

Dimple cooling jackets - manufactured using GVTEC's unique automated spot-resistance welding process to eliminate human error - can be supplied in varying percentages of coverage, benchmarked according to the intended use of the tank.

A 30% coverage by surface area is recommended for fermentation tanks; 40% coverage ensures the quick drop in temperature required for cold stabilization: 25% coverage is sufficient for storage use.

The welds of the dimple cooling jackets are pin-point precise, for more efficient through-flow of coolant. Thin jacket profiles ensure better heat exchange, so that less coolant is needed and electricity usage is reduced.

The jackets are tested to withstand pressure of 10 bar. (Pre-formed jackets typically only take 3 bar maximum.)

Easy tank cleaning saves time and costs.

GVTEC's unique mirror-polished interior makes for easier removal of tartaric acid and must solids, reducing cleaning time and costs. As result, the flavours, colour and aromas of the grape can be delicately and more fully extracted.

Benefit from our wine industry focused design process.

  • Fabricated from austenitic stainless steel grade 304 and 316. Austenitic steel is corrosion resistant and does not become brittle at low temperatures.
  • A double compartment arrangement is an option.
  • Stainless steel manifold pipes are optional.
  • All valves are removable by means of a union. Can be supplied with Garolla fittings if required.
  • All apertures are flared both inside and out; no corners that could harbour dirt.
  • Internal welds are ground smooth and strip polished for ease of cleaning.
