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.

Criveller Automatic Sorting System
Criveller Automatic Sorting System
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 · 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.

Criveller Self Emptying Red Fermenters
Criveller Self Emptying Red Fermenters
Criveller has solved the problem of unloading pomace from fermenters for medium to large wineries. 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 reduction 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. Sizes range from 4000 gal up to 30,000 gal.
