About Us

Juclas
Wine. A world where everything is new.

JUCLAS was established in 1990 based on an idea of the owners of Enologica Vason, a company which is always searching for the best to offer its customers; it arose out of the need to find important and safe plant solutions to the problems involving the food and in particular the wine-making industries. JUCLAS is a young company, with a sizeable R&D department thanks to which the company designs and creates innovative technologies, with special attention given to those aspects related to qualitative improvement, energy saving and respect for the environment. JUCLAS has recently invested in human resources as a means of expanding its possibility of satisfying its customers who are increasingly more attentive to the quality of the services we offer. We have achieved this by adopting an organizational approach and model which is much more flexible and effective, thanks to a group of professionals who pool their individual creativity in order to obtain the best results.

Our company consists of a technical office which works in strict collaboration with Research and Development, making the most of upgraded design systems to construct pilot plants representative of the technical ideas that have to be tested in an experimental stage; a manufacturing department, capable of producing in compliance with the strictest standards set by the food industry; lastly, a sales office, always prompt in reporting the varied and individual requirements of our customers to the technical office.

Today JUCLAS can be considered a leader in its sector as many of its techniques presented on an industrial scale have already become standard use in wineries. These must include clarification in continuous mode by means of flotation, cross flow filtration, microoxygenation of musts and wines, tartaric stabilization of wines by means of ionic separation on membranes otherwise known as electrodialysis technique now extended to all kinds of wines, including doc and docg and a very wide range of cold biological stabilization systems which function by filtration on microporous membranes. Contact us, we are sure that we can provide you with original, individualized solutions and you have the guarantee of unique technical support (for example the tele-assistance by web), supplied by a team of real specialists in the food industry.

ILLUSIVE White Elephant Crossflow Filter Found! JUCLAS Unit Capable of Filtering Premium SINGLE Barrels and BULK Lots.

As a winemaker or GM, do you ever find yourself asking "why can't I have a versatile crossflow that will filter my single barrel boutique lots AND my 20,000 gallon tank of Sauvignon Blanc?" If the answer is YES -- then you need to call JUCLAS USA immediately!  The brand new filter just arrived in our Napa warehouse and is available for sale, rental, lease, or mobile service.

MFTC 02-04

Due to the engineering brilliance of Technical Sales Manager, Logan Fleming, the JUCLAS Crossflow (MFTC) has been modified in such a way that it can now close off membranes in order to minimize losses while filtering those high end wines.  Less losses equals more product available for sale.  More product available for sale means more revenue. More revenue means more profit. And more profit means a happier boss and winery owner.

On average, this 2-4 hollow fiber membrane unit can run in automatic (CIP included) for 12 hours, and process about 1,000 gallons per hour.  It works on extremely low pressure, has minimal O2 pickup, and fully respects the organoleptic properties of your wine.

What are you waiting for? Give us a call at 707.259.1877 or 707.400.3911.

SUCCESSFUL Floatation Seminar and Trial at Fresno State Winery with the Winemakers of Tomorrow -- GO BULLDOGS!
30 August, 2016

SUCCESSFUL Floatation Seminar and Trial at Fresno State Winery with the Winemakers of Tomorrow...


On Thursday August 25th at Fresno State Winery JUCLAS USA gave a floatation technology seminar to 30 future winemakers.  Logan Fleming, technical sales manager, and Susan Owen, operations manager, spent the day with the students with a lecture based talk as well as time in the winery completing a real world floatation trial.

 FRESNO STATE FLOATATIONThe Fresno State students, along with their head winemaker and department professor Matt Brain, hand harvested estate grown Barbera grapes the previous night.  Professor Brain and students pressed the fruit themselves and dedicated 250 gallons for their 2016 estate Rose.  The floatation took place using a JUCLAS EasyFloat 300 and the VASON adjuvants for flaotation: Flottogel, Flottozima, and Flottobent.  Students had the opportunity to intereact with a technology that they had not previously been exposed to. Katie, a graduating senior from Wisconsin, said she "has heard other people and winemakers talk about floatation at her internship, but that she hasn't had a chance to experience it first hand before".

 

FLOATATION SAMPLES

Susan Owen, as an alumni of Fresno State, "felt honored to be able to give back to her university through technical support and educating the future winemakers of our industry.". Logan Fleming, an alumni of Cal Poly, was "quite surprised with the Fresno State's cellar setup, and didn't know before this experience that the university possessed a fully functioning winery."

Fermentation and Sensory Analysis students interacted with the Easy Float 300 equipment, learned what it means to have a specific products designated for floatation, and took part in the operation and successful floatation of the 250 gallons of Barbera Rose.

Continuous Floatation

 Easy Float: Perfectly Clarifying Must

 


Discontinuous Mini Floatation Unit Used to Achieve the Desired Level of Turbidity in Real Time

 

 

 

Easy Float 500

Easy Float has been designed to carry out floatation during pumping over on tanks.  Gas dissolution takes place by means of a pump, through a stainless steel pressurising cylinder.  Its function is of the utmost importance: it acts as a dissolver, thus allowing for the aggregation of the flocculants with the gas and solid particles to be eliminated.  Easy Float can operate both with air and nitrogen, so it is suitable with traditional, hyperoxygenation, and reductive wine making techniques.  This system is equipped with an electrical board and boasts all the necessary elements for managing gas.  It is set for the installation of one or two pumps for dosing adjuvants.

 

Advantages Compared to Traditional Static Clarifying: 

 

  • turn tanks faster
  • fewer adjuvants required
  • save on refrigeration costs
  • quick seperation of indigenous micro-organisms from the must
  • higher yield in terms of clear must thanks to the optimal lees consolidaiton
  • reduced quantity of lees to be filtered
  • possible to determine the desired must turbidity level in advance in order to manage fermentation processes more effecively

JUCLAS USA CROSS FLOW TECHNOLOGY HAS ARRIVED IN NAPA!
14 March, 2016

JUCLAS USACROSS FLOW TECHNOLOGY HAS ARRIVED IN NAPA!

MFTC

The most versatile filter system in enology. 

The automatic bypass microfiltration on a hollow fibre membrane.

MFTC Cross Flow 10 Membrane

Advantages:

Membranes selected for their durability and economical price point

-     Absolute versatility for filtration of: musts, unrefined , clarified, and sparkling wines

-     Automation available for the smallest models

-     Optimal management of clogging by “balanced back flush”

-     Expandable, modular, and scalable models

-     Maintain a stable temperature during the process

The current market demands the development of economical filtration equipment that is capable of processing large daily volumes.  JUCLAS USAhas responded to these needs with the tangential filter MFTCthat has a new generation polypropylene membranes, selected to be inert towards the structure of the wine and for its extreme resistance to mechanical and chemical stress.  They are available in three types of filter cartridges (10, 15, and 20 m2)to form a complete range of MFTCfilters with modular and scalar extension.

In addition, the units can also be equipped with a single cartridge that is sufficient for small lots (up to 20 hL/hr for still wines) to meet the needs of the craft/boutique winery. With steel housing the equipment is also available for use with sparkling wines.

Cross Flow filtration (MFTC)is extremely versatile. What does that mean to you the winemaker?

This means that it optimally combines all the filtration needs of a winery: musts, wines after fermentation, and wine to be prepared for sale and packaging.  The quality of the process performance are excellent from the loading of the autoclaves to separation at the end of fermentation.
