PILOT-ACETATOR 200 L for the production of specialties

With a total volume of 200 L, the PILOT ACETATOR F200 is a comparatively small system for the production of high-priced specialty vinegars such as fruit vinegars and wine vinegars. The starting materials are wines and alcoholic mashes with a clearly higher quality than with large volume industrial processes. This system is therefore suitable for vineyards and specialty vinegar producers in which the cellar-master not only attaches considerable importance to the art of wine fermentation, but also on vinegar fermentation. If the wine preparation and vinegar production are carried out at a single location then full-bodied vinegars can be produced using the best raw materials without their re-dilution with water.

Finally, the producers of specialty vinegars are also subject to cost pressure on the raw material and production side. To ensure that reject-batches are avoided and the cellar master has enough time to keep an eye on what is most important, the PILOT-ACETATOR F200 is therefore designed in a very user friendly way and is automated.

The annual production capacity of the PILOT ACETATOR 200 totals approx. 20,000 litres per year. The key attributes such as

  • The reproducible fermentation sequence
  • Limited losses through the evaporation of your valuable raw material during fermentation
  • Long product lifespan
  • Minimum maintenance costs
  • Straightforward operation
  • Flexible use in the production of different vinegars

make the vinegar production process appear very simple, maskin an underlying complexity presented in an user friendly manner by FRINGS technology.

  • Transparent ACETATOR container with internal stainless steel cooling loop
  • High performance aerator
  • Central ACETOMAT control unit with SIEMENS SPS and Touch Panel
