Under the influence of alcoholic fermentation in red wines, everyone knows that the marc layer is compact and floats on the tank’s surface. It is estimated that only 20% of it is in direct contact with the grape must.
Only a mechanical action can deconstruct the solids in the tank. With regular punching done with the puncher, 80% of the grape skins are in direct contact and immersion in the wine. All studies show that this punching technique allows to obtain a richer and more structured wine, and a significant increase in fat, roundness and volume, a result that every wine grower is tending to achieve.
Thanks to a pneumatic jack, and to variable adjustment arms, the Coutale puncher can deconstruct within a few minutes, 100% of the tank volume.
Thanks to a patented system, the Coutale puncher is the only one in the world able to adapt to all sorts of tanks.
It weighs only 45 kg.
A 50 cm opening is enough to allow its installation in the tank.
It can open out in the tank reaching 3 metres wide.
Its pneumatic jack punches 100 % through a marc layer of 1.20 metre thick.
Only 8 bar air pressure is sufficient for to operate.
It has a 3 years guarantee and does not need any maintenance.
