Temperature control is very much the heart of the VinWizard system. It has earned a reputation for outstanding reliability and accuracy while offering the winemaker temperature features far beyond basic “on/off” control. Click here to read more.

Features include:

Remote system access; Period based temperature change; Adjustable deadband; Automatic follow-on setpoints; Current and historic graphs; Reports; Login security; Dynamic watch-list creation; Dynamically updated 3D tank screens; Comprehensive SMS tank alarms; "Empty tank" function;   Select power saving features; Audit history; Multi lingual and more.

 

Beyond Tank Temperature Control:

 

Our technology also allows us to easily and affordably interface to any winery component. This allows the winemaker to view and/or control all aspects of the operation from any location via one interface. This includes pump-over, stirrer, crush pad automation, humidity, CO2, water usage, must lines, plant rooms, Production Database, automated gas blanketing etc. These can be added to the core temperature control module as required.

 

 

Power Savings

To maximize refrigeration efficiency, the use of your plant should be dictated by what wine is in a tank and what status that wine is at. VinWizard introduces a series of new initiatives to slash power consumption through a more intelligent use of resources.

 

 General Manager Salena Estate: "The cost savings and increase in energy efficiency have been "black and white". After a capital outlay of $80,000; $30,000 of which was for the refrigeration, the system has paid for itself over the first vintage. VinWizard's pumpover support program has seen incredible savings in human resources as it eliminated the need for the nine staff Selena Estate required to undertake the pumpover across three shifts per day." _
