Pulsair Wine Tank Mixing

Since 1986, winemakers have used Pulsair’s “pneumatage” air mixing process to mix red grape juice quickly and efficiently into contact with the floating skins. 

This innovative and proven air mixing process for efficiently managing red grape skin caps during primary wine fermentation and wine blending is used all over the world by hundred of winemakers to make better tasting wines. 

This efficient wine cap air mixing technique works by sequentially pulsing large bubbles of compressed air or gas near the bottom of the fermentation tank. The rising bubbles provide uniform temperature, keep yeasts healthy, and efficiently wet the cap to enhance the extraction of flavor, tannins and color into the juice. 

This process maintains freshness, reduces bacteria formation and helps expel unwanted wine mercaptans, CO2 gas and volatile sulfur compounds for a more healthy and less reductive tasting wine. 

Also known as ‘in-tank pump-over’ or a ‘reverse wine punch down’, the Pulsair ‘pneumatage’ process is the fastest and most efficient method to manage red grape caps. Unlike other methods, Pneumatage breaks up the cap into individual berries and circulates them in the juice, which keeps the cap in a semi-loose state making it easier and more efficient to regularly manage the cap.

 

Applications


Wine Cold Soak Management

Pre-fermentation cold soak wine is a technique some winemakers employ for a few days prior to inoculating the ferments for Pinot and other reds. The goal is to encourage more color and flavor extraction from the skins into the juice. In which, whole or crushed berries and juice are put into stainless steel fermentors with dimpled cooling jackets. In addition, Glycol and water is then pumped through the jacket to lower the temperature to the desired point.  Without proper stirring of the wine uneven temperatures and hot spots can compromise the cold soak process. Pulsing compressed inert gases into the tank below the cap with Pulsair is a quick and easy way to bring the juice up over the top of the cap to enhance this process and maintain a uniform temperature in the tank. The Pulsair mixing tank technique saves time, reduces labor costs and keeps the caps loose and broken up into individual berries to make normal cap management.

Wine Pump Over

Wine pump over, also referred to as ‘remontage’ in France, is a process in which red wine juice is pumped from the bottom of the fermentation tank through a hose and then sprayed and splashed over the top of the grape cap must in order to bring the juice in contact with the skins so the color, flavor and aromas can be extracted from the skins into the juice.  The wine pump over process is usually employed in large closed and open top red wine fermenters during the main red wine fermentation process.

Pneumatage, or also simply known as ‘pulsair’, is a similar process in which the wine juice makes contact with the wine cap but differs in the fact that the wine juice is brought up and over the cap through the use of pulsing large burst of compressed air through a stainless steel mixing probe or fixed injection port probes near the bottom of the wine fermentation tank.  The rising bubbles break up the cap into individual berrries and the wine juice spills up and over the top.

While at the high level, the two process accomplish the same thing: cap management, there are so many more advantages to the winemaker during this critical wine making process.

Wine Cap Management 

Pulsair offers wine fermentation accessories used for cap management wine and lees management.
Once we have crushed the fruit, it’s time to start the wine fermentation. White wines need to be protected from oxygen and are usually fermented in a closed vessel. Red wines actually benefit from oxygen exposure during fermentation and are often fermented in open-top vessels.

To achieve the best fermentation, Pulsair offers a wide range of wine mixing systems and agitators,

  • Portable Wine Tank Mixer
  • Oil Free Air Compressors
  • PPC Pneumatage
  • Wine Cart
  • Crush Cart

Wine Blending

Wine Blending is the operation where two different lots of wine are combined. The wine lots can be different single-varietal wines, two already blended wines , at least two wine lots that are the same varietal, or even two wine lots of same varietal and vineyard. 

In order to get the best wine blending Pulsair offers winemakers a simple and efficient method. This fast wine blending process uses bursts of compressed air, nitrogen or CO2 gases sequentially released at the tank bottom to quickly blend two or more different wines.  Winemakers can also blend in other additives to their wines to quickly create their desired wine.

Sturring the Lees

Sur lie aging is the process of allowing a finished wine to continue to sit on the lees in order to extract flavors.

Stirring the lees is a process in which leftover yeast particles that settle on the tank or barrel bottom are stirred up and gently agitated in white and sparkling wines.  This “sur lie aning” process is known to add textures and flavors to the wine.  It is believe that white wines that are fermented and aged in lees are often described as having greater depth, richer, creamer and fuller-bodied flavors.

Pulsair wine mixing tank Systems has simple solutions for stirring the lees in barrels and large white fermentation tanks. The process works by releasing large compressed air/gas bubbles close to the tank floor.  These bubbles gently disturb the settles less and bring them up into suspension as the large bubbles rise to the wine surface.  Pulsair can design custom solutions based on the tank size and specific requirements and goals of the winemaker.

Hope Family Wines selects Pulsair Systems for a 25-tank cap management solution
28 July, 2020

Kirkland, WA –  Pulsair Systems, Inc. today announced that Hope Family Wines is choosing Pulsair’s efficient multi-tank air mixing solution to manage red grape caps in 25 red fermentation tanks. Pulsair is providing cap management mixing equipment, engineering, training and a Pulsair Pneumatage multi-tank touchscreen mixing controller for Hope Family Wines in Paso Robles CA.

Starting with the Treana wine label in 1995, Hope Family Wines now consists of five individual brands: Liberty School, Treana, Quest, Troublemaker and Austin Hope. As premium wine producer, Hope Family Wine seeks to produce the highest quality wines for the Paso Robles region as recently reflected with their award winning Austin Hope 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon earning an outstanding Wine Enthusiast 97 point score– the highest score ever awarded to a Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon from the magazine. 

“We know that Pulsair’s innovative air mixing process for cap management is proven to delivery consistent, high quality winemaking results,” said Jason ‘JC’ Diefenderfer, Director of Winemaking at Hope Family Wines. “Maintaining our high winemaking standards is paramount and there are no tradeoffs in wine quality using Pulsair as our primary method for managing the caps. Process efficiency and the safety for our entire staff are also top priorities here during harvest time that Pulsair will help address. We know from our winery partners that Pulsair’s track record for high quality craftsmanship, service and reliability are second to none.”  

“We are thrilled to be working with Hope Family Wines and being selected to manage their red wine grape caps in their new winery, said John Parks, Pulsair’s General Manager. “Hope Family Wines is committed to producing the highest quality cabernet sauvignon wines in California’s biggest and most diverse wine growing region. Austin Hope and his staff at Hope Family Wines are leading the way to help recognize the Paso Robles AVA and it’s 11 sub AVAs as a world-class winemaking region. Pulsair fits in perfectly with Hope Family Wines goal of producing high quality wines on a large scale, improving efficiency and creating a safe working environment.”

Pulsair’s gentle air mixing process for primary fermentation and wine tank mixing works by sequentially pulsing in large bursts of modulated air or gas bubbles beneath the cap. The large air bubbles push and pull the juice up into and over the top of the grape cap to gentle dissolve, liquefy and uncompact the skin pomace yielding a healthier and less reductive fermentation. Uniform temperature and the expelling of heat, CO2 and H2S gases creates a more healthy environment for the yeast bodies and for enhancing the infusion of phenolics, aiding tannin development and extraction of color and flavors. 

The patented Pulsair Systems air mixing process, first used in the wine industry in 1988, can be used in any size or geometrically shaped fermentation tank.  Pulsair offers air and gas mixing equipment solutions for any size winery and any size tank. Pulsair offers a wide range of portable, mobile and permanent air mixing solutions for barrels, 1-2 ton macrobin and fermentation tanks of any size or number.

Pulsair Systems Delivers Large Multi-Tank Cap Management Solutions to Bear Creek Winery’s 450-Ton Red Fermentation Tanks
14 May, 2020

Kirkland, WA – Pulsair Systems Inc. today announced that Bear Creek Winery, one of the country’s largest custom premium wine producers is expanding their Pulsair large bubble, air mixing system installation into four (4) 450-ton, 23 foot diameter red fermentation tanks to maximize efficiency for cap management and rapid tank devatting after primary fermentation is ended.   Pulsair is providing cap management equipment, engineering, training and a Pulsair Pneumatage multi-tank touchscreen air mixing controller for Bear Creek Winery in Lodi, CA.


“We’re thrilled to continue working with Bear Creek Winery as they expand and adopt winemaking technologies that help support their high-quality standards and lower productions costs without any compromise in wine quality,” said John Parks, Pulsair’s General Manager.  “Bear Creek first started using Pulsair during the 2019 harvest with amazing result.  What usually took 24-30 hours to completely empty and drain a 450-ton tank was reduced to 8-12 hours – an incredible 60-70% time savings. With a grape cap that is over 15-feet thick in a 450-ton tank, Bear Creek was skeptical of just how much ‘mixing’ was been achieved by their older sprinkler pump-over process during the fermentation process."

“Here at Bear Creek Winery, we have fermentation tanks sized from 25 tons to 450 tons. In 2019, we chose to trial Pulsair on our 450-ton tank because it offered the most potential time and labor savings. After our trial, we are completely convinced Pulsair works – it is amazing how it has improved our operations here.  It’s a fantastic and efficient technique for fermentation cap management, tank devatting and general tank mixing,” said Han Han, Winemaker at Bear Creek.  “We follow a very strict policy here when considering new technologies that can improve the winemaking process.  New technologies must meet achievable ROIs and not take away from the wine quality in any way – Pulsair’s solution for cap management, devatting and tank blending far and exceeded these requirements.“ “What we generally see during pump-overs is that the juice finds the path of least resistance and forms channels to the bottom of the cap. This means that regardless how much or how long you run the sprinkler pump-overs, there will be pockets in the cap that juice will not to reach during the fermentation until it’s time to drain and press. Now we are completely confident all the fermenting wine juice is mixing up into the buoyant grape cap to enhance the infusion and extraction process.”  “The overall quality of wine has also increased for many direct and indirect reasons. Some direct reasons include healthier fermentations due to better temperature control and less percent solids due to less sluicing. Some indirect reasons would be because Pulsair increases our pressing efficiency, we’re able to get more tanks drained and pressed at our desired tannin levels. This increased efficiency helps us bring in more fruit at optimal ripeness without needing more fermenter tanks or presses.”


Moving forward, Bear Creek Winery will also start to expand their use of Pulsair and outfit a “smaller” 200-ton red fermenter tank with Pulsair for cap management. Additionally, Bear Creek continues to use their mobile Pulsair Crush Carts with nitrogen gas to replace wine pumps, shortening all wine tank mixing and addition sessions from 90-120 minutes down to 10-20 minutes.

Pulsair’s gentle air mixing process for primary fermentation, tank devatting and wine tank mixing works by sequentially pulsing in large bursts of modulated air or gas bubbles beneath the cap.  The large air bubbles push and pull the juice up into and over the top of the grape cap to gentle dissolve, liquefy and uncompact the skin pomace yielding a healthier and less reductive fermentation.  Once the skins and juice are homogenously mixed in the fermenter after primary is over, they can then be pumped out to the wine press where the wine can be separated from the skins.

The patented Pulsair Systems air mixing process, first used in the wine industry in 1988, can be used in any size or geometrically shaped fermentation tank.  Pulsair offers air and gas mixing equipment solutions for any size winery and any size tank.   Pulsair offers a wide range of portable and mobile air mixing solutions for barrel, 1-2 ton macrobin and fermentation tanks of any size or number.

Pulsair’s revolutionary air mixing technology can also be used for any must modification, cold soak mixing, lees stirring and year-round tank mixing to help maximize efficiency without any tradeoffs in wine quality.

Bear Creek is one of the leading bulk wine producers in the country and is dedicated to providing the highest quality wines and services at exceptional values.

Bear Creek Winery, located in Lodi, California, is the 6th largest family-owned U.S. grape grower and winery operations.  It has earned a reputation as one of the premier custom wine producers in California.  Bear Creek Winery is recognized as the preferred outsourcing partner for many of the world’s leading beverage alcohol companies and brand owners.

Cap Management - New Product Release | Pulsair Systems introduces new TM-1501W Wine Kit, the worlds best air/gas cap mixing for small barrel and 1-2 ton ferments
25 February, 2020

 

All-New Pulsair Systems TM-1501W Wine Kit.

 

Pulsair officially unveils a new, inexpensive, portable air mixing system, the TM-1501W Wine Kit, for winemakers who ferment smaller grape lots in barrels, macrobins and 1-3 ton fermentation tanks to improve the vinification process.

 

Featuring Pulsair's 35-year proven and tested air mixing process for cap management, winemakers can now use Pulsair in smaller fermentation tanks to enhance the infusions of phenolics, tannins and color to improve aromatics, complex structure and reduce reductive and stuck ferments.

 

A lightweight, portable stainless steel probe is inserted in through the buoyant cap to sequentially release the timed pulses of compressed air or gas into the ferment.  The speed and intensity of the modulated injection of air pulses can be controlled on the all-pneumatic, air driven Pulsair TM-1501W Mixer.  Once released under the cap, the rising compressed air bubbles push the juice up into and over the top of the cap flooding, loosening and immersing it with juice yielding a healthier and less oxygen starved ferment.

 

The Pulsair air mixing process has also been characterized by winemakers as a 'reverse pump-down' or an 'in-tank pump-over'.

 

The video above shows multiple whole berry active fermentations in 1-2 ton bins at Saviah Cellars during the 2019 harvest.  Saviah Cellars is a boutique, ultra-premium and award winning winery in the rapidly growing and premium producing Rocks District of Milton-Freewater AVA (The Rocks District) in Walla Walla, Washington.

 

See more videos from winemakers who use Pulsair. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtZp7zh9BofiqidEFVBAFDA/videos 

 

Without compromising any wine quality, the Pulsair air mixing process is gentle on berries, safe to use and requires much less physical effort from the winemaking team to bring the juice, yeast bodies and skins together during primary red fermentation in any size tank.

 

By completely flooding the cap with the juice, the winemaking team can easily and confidently blow off trapped H2S gases and heat that can lengthen and adversely impact the desired winemaking goals. The Pulsair air/gas mixing process can be used exclusively in place of or in conjunction with traditional punch-down and pump-over cap management techniques. Adopting Pulsair is inexpensive and effective. With a extra accessories, the Pulsair equipment can also be used year-round for any type of wine tank blending or mixing with nitrogen gas. The multipurpose uses of Pulsair helps streamline operations at any size winery and will help reduce cost-per-gallon calculations.

 

What is Pulsair?  Hear what Russell Bevan of Bevan Cellars says:

 

 

In addition to primary cap management and year-round blending, Pulsair can also be used for any type of pre-fermentation must modification including but not limited to dry ice, water addition, acid additions and enzymes & tannins additions.  Yeast and nutrients can now also be completely mixing throughout the entire fermentation tank during inoculation.

 

Using Pulsair is also the fastest and most effective method for completely homogenizing any ‘liquid’ addition. No longer do winemakers need to wait days and days for a pump-overs to finally and completely blend in liquid additions with wine juice.  Winemakers can now make their ‘liquid’ addition and then quickly and completely mix the entire tank with Pulsair and have the confidence that the pulled lab sample is now accurate.

 

In addition to Pulsair’s new TM-1501W, Pulsair continues to offer a wide variety and selection of affordable, low maintenance, portable, mobile and permanent multi-tank mixing solutions for any size fermentation tank or number of tanks.  (The largest tank mixed with Pulsair has been a 450-ton, 23’ diameter tank in the Lodi, CA area).  Many large scale wineries have over a 100 tanks outfitted with Pulsair for fast, efficient, multi-tank cost savings and labor saving cap management.

" Wine by Joe uses Pulsair for the vast majority of cap management. From 1.5 ton bins to 35 ton tanks Pulsair efficiently mixes cold soaks and active fermentations with less physical labor. This gentle method of incorporating the cap helps to minimize sulfides and astringent tannins and easily distributes heat and juice. In the future we’re looking into applying our Pulsair units with nitrogen outside of the harvest season to mix tanks of wine, further reducing labor by cutting down on pump set up time. "
