A diversified firm of equipment supply and services provider.

Criveller Company was founded in 1978, with an emphasis on providing innovative processing and packaging solutions to the wine regions of Canada. Criveller forged alliances with leading European equipment manufacturers, and became recognized not only for high quality equipment, but also for its technical consulting and design services as well as superior customer service. Many long-term business relationships were established through dedication and personal involvement.

 

Criveller Company Canada

Criveller soon opened a manufacturing plant of its own, to complement its equipment importation and design service functions. The plant specialized in the production of stainless steel tanks, initially concentrating on the winery sector. The facility flourished, and in the mid-80's, Criveller diversified itself, with the production of brewing vessels, brew house process piping systems, and cellar tanks for the microbrewery and brewpub sectors. Criveller applied its turnkey capabilities, project management experience, and "Yes, we can!" attitude to become a global supplier to the food and beverage industries.

With 3 state-of-the-art manufacturing locations (Ontario, California, and Italy), projects not only encompass the winery and brewery sectors, but has also included pasta sauce production facilities, blending and metering systems for vodka production, tanks and packaging solutions to the bottled water industry and Olive oil production.

ESTASI destemmer
ESTASI destemmer
The belt destemmer, which took the honor of BEST DESTEMMER by Wine Business Monthly in 2010 (March 2010 issue), is a fresh take on removing berries off the stem as gently as possible. It is actually best described by what it DOESNT HAVE. It doesnt have a beating shaft, a cage or "centrifugal force and the clusters are not torn apart from the rachis. Rather the berries are brushed off the rachis. Similar in design to the traditional french method of removing berries over a screen with a broom, the ESTASI has a transverse oscillating screen which gently brushes the berries off the stem. As the berries fall through the screen the rachis is brought forward into your waste bin. This is seen as the most delicate way of removing berries from the stem!
Tanks installed in Sonoma with completely removable lid. Can be used as either open top or closed top tanks!
Tanks installed in Temecula. This tank is equipped with a brushed clad finish.

Criveller delivers new Self Emptying Tanks!
27 September, 2016

The beauty of using  self-emptying fermenters are the perfect solution for winemakers who struggle with unloading large fermenters. The amount of time saved in comparison to manually unloading large tanks is unparalleled.

By a simple turn of a switch, you can unload an entire red fermenter with minimal physical labor. Two stainless steel paddles turn on top of an internal reverse truncated cone and completely empties the large fermenter with ease. The paddles are controlled via a bottom mounted gearbox and motor. The unloading of pomace is even and gradual throughout the entire operation. A manway mounted on the inclined bottom allows the discharge of the pomace directly onto a conveyor, bin or adequate pump. Typically, we provide self-emptying red fermenters complete with automatic pump over systems. 

 

 

 


Criveller is introducing the new Mercury Augurless Receiving Hopper
12 September, 2016

We are excited to introduce a new exciting piece of equipment this year! The augurless hopper is designed to achieve delicate grape transfer on a larger scale (up to 80 tons/hr). The soft grape retrieval is accomplished by using specially designed helical rollers that hold the fruit and slowly dose it onto the attached stainless steel “augerless” conveyance system.  This process is unlike other Hopper’s where the fruit is damaged by the mechanical shearing by screwworms. The augerless feeding system can be used to transport whole clusters (as well as machine harvested) into a destemmer, press or fermenter.

Technical Details:

     ·     10 – 80 Tons/hr.

     ·     Belt Length can be custom designed to length of existing crush pad

     ·    Discharge Height can be custom designed to length of existing crush pad

     ·    Power Supply:  220V or 480V / 3 Phase / 60 Hz

In addition to pre-sales consultation, Criveller offers an extensive supply of parts and unparalleled technical support for our clients. Reliable equipment, customizable stainless steel tanks, and a knowledge support staff are just a few of the way’s Criveller Group makes crush easier.

CRIVELLER IS INTRODUCING THE NEW ROLLER-SORTER!
01 February, 2016

We are excited to introduce a new piece of equipment we have added to our inventory this year. The Roller-Sorter delicately removes foreign material out of your destemmed product easily and cost effectively. The design incorporates a series of interlocking rollers which turn and transfer forward any unwanted MOG, while allowing grapes to fall through the inner spaces. The spaces are adjustable without use of any “setting sheets” or “panels”. This allows for a variable range of grape diameters depending on the variety and harvest conditions.

Technical Details:

  • Output ranges from 1-15 tons/hour

  • Frame is 100% stainless steel

  • Unit comes with wheels

  • Rollers made of malleable material

  • Removes a high percentage of jacks

  • Frequency drive controlled

Other Characteristics:

  • Effortless installation and quick cleaning with removable rollers

  • Low maintenance

  • Quick and easy spacing adjustments that work best with your product

  • Works with hand-picked or mechanically harvested grapes

  • Can be used on its own or as an add-on to an existing destemmer

  • Reduces labor cost

For any inquiries, your local sales representative is available at any time to answer any questions. We look forward to making 2016 a great year!

Newly Designed D. E. Filter Offers Superior Performance
02 February, 2015

Criveller Group is pleased to introduce a new type of D. E. filter with vertical elements (VE) that improves upon the advantages of D. E. filters.

Diatomaceous Earth (D. E.) filters are one of the least expensive types of filters to run. These long-lasting, low-maintenance filters are capable of filtering large volumes in a relatively short time.

Vertical Elements D. E. Filters have several advantages:

  • Since D. E. cake can be BUILT on both sides of the screens, VE filters are smaller and more maneuverable
  • VE filters are less expensive
  • Washing vertical elements is easier than horizontal elementsCriveller D.E. Filter with Vertical Elements

Discharging a D. E. Filter is a relatively simple process because the exhausted cake is detached from the screens through vibration and can be recovered easily through the large opening at the bottom of the unit.

The new VE D. E. is available in sizes from 7.5 – 30 m2 with several options including a scavenger filter, double inlet/outlet manifold, and a sparkling wine (high pressure) version. Contact Criveller Group at 888-849-2266 or info@criveller.com for all the details on this improved filtering system.

Wine Technology can Change the World
24 November, 2014

In addition to producing a long-revered beverage, one of the technologies used to make wine was fundamental to the rise of literacy and the evolution of today’s modern information-based world.

A press similar to the humble hand-powered wooden-slatted basket presses that continue to juice grapes today served as the basis of the first European movable-type printing press developed by Johannes Gutenberg in the 1450s. Gutenberg’s ratcheting screw press let him apply even pressure to a sheet laid atop metal letters covered in oil-based ink. His invention mass produced books faster than ever before. As literacy and knowledge became more widely disseminated, this cultural awakening helped usher in the Renaissance, a precursor to our own data-driven culture.


Criveller Group - Equipment and TanksNowadays winemakers employ traditional and radically new technologies in filtering, pressing, fermentation and bottling. Does the winemaking technology you use improve your processes?

As this season’s grapes are pressed and the juice is stored, note what equipment is ready for replacement and how much additional capacity you need for next year. Take action now so you can really relax into the new year.

Crush with Confidence
15 September, 2014

As harvest and grape processing season revs up, winemakers are reminded again of the value of on-call technical assistance. Equipment often sits unused and unattended until it is pressed into service by new hires or staffers who are unfamiliar with it. In addition to on-site visits, Criveller Group provides telephone technical support for the wineries who have purchased equipment through Criveller.

This support can prove essential when grapes are in and the unexpected happens. Recently, a winemaker called after his pump “ate” some metal that fell off a disintegrating screen and made its way into the pump. A Criveller technician was able to offer guidance on how to operate the pump to try to dislodge the obstruction without causing damage.

Criveller technicians are trained to guide staffers in diagnosing problems to get equipment running as quickly as possible. Criveller California recently added to its technical team to better support its clients. The hire of Chris Wishart adds another experienced technician who has spent years working in and around wineries in Northern California and Oregon.

Criveller California Aids Quake-Damaged Sites
28 August, 2014

In the days following the Napa earthquake, Criveller California representatives have visited client sites to inspect, evaluate, repair, and stand ready to replace equipment and tanks that sustained damage. By sending technicians and account executives to visit clients and by prioritizing quake-impacted sites, Criveller California is right there to lend help.

In one case, crush equipment installed just a few weeks before would not start after the jolt. A Criveller technician was able to find the problem, reconnect some wires and get it in working order before the next shipment of grapes.

Account executive Ann Magida saw the severe consequences of the temblor at several sites in Napa and she has expressed appreciation for how quickly the recovery has begun. “Wineries know how to gear up for intense work during harvest. Staffers have been able to apply that intensity now to quickly bring some order to chaos. I have no doubt wineries in Napa will come back strong.”

Criveller California provides technical support, superior winemaking and bottling equipment and high-quality stainless steel tanks to discerning clients since 1999. Additional information is available at Criveller.com.

The belt destemmer, which took the honor of  BEST DESTEMMER by Wine Business Monthly in 2010 (March 2010 issue), is a fresh take on removing berries off the stem as gently as possible. It is actually best described by what it DOESNT HAVE. It doesnt have a beating shaft, a cage or "centrifugal force and the clusters are not torn apart from the rachis. Rather the berries are brushed off the rachis. Similar in design to the traditional french method of removing berries over a screen with a broom, the ESTASI has a transverse oscillating screen which gently brushes the berries off the stem. As the berries fall through the screen the rachis is brought forward into your waste bin (see image). This is seen as the most delicate way of removing berries from the stem!

This unit is also designed to give a high percentage of whole berries and minimize stem breakage. An additional feature this machine offers is a compact sorting area on top of the actual destemmer. So you can now sort and de-stem your clusters in 1 machine. When purchasing a traditional style destemmer and a sorting table separately the costs alone would surpass the price of the estasi. Wineries are already taking advantage of this feature. Click on the link below to see how the unit can be used as a sorting table as well.


New Automatic Sorting Table from Criveller Group
14 May, 2013

The new "Automatic sorting table" has been designed for the following application: Removal of shot berries and seeds, Removal of stems or any other large debris, and Removal of "Jacks". This new table consists primarily of a vibrating table constructed in two levels and with 3 sections, each one dedicated to a specific application and precisely:

  • First Section: Separation of shot berries, with drawer style collection screens. Easy to remove and to clean. The double drawer-screen allows the operator to clean screens without stopping the unit.
  • Second Section: Removal of stems. This is the core of the table and has been designed and patented by us. It consist of a slotted screen on which parts of the slots are adjustable in width and in inclination thus allowing the berries to go through (and fall into the lower section) while the stems or other debris continues forward and are collected through side discharge channels.
  • Third Section: Manual inspection and additional debris removal. It consist of a flat surface, where the operator can manually intervene and remove any debris that may have gone through and a secondary screen for the removal of any "jacks" , shot berry or seeds that avoided the first section.

The entire structure is made in stainless steel. An inverter is provided to control the vibration intensity and consequently the speed of the unit.
