Industrial remote controls for wine pumps

You may think wine is just wine and has been for centuries. In the age of technological advancements, wineries are not left behind. Today, we’re focusing on a game-changer in wine production – the use of industrial remote control systems to operate wine pumps. This innovation enhances efficiency, reduces oxygenation, and, ultimately, improves the quality of your favorite wines.

Understanding Industrial Remote Control Systems

To better understand the impact of industrial remote control systems in wineries, let’s first understand what they are and how they work.

What is a wine pump?

A wine pump is a versatile industrial pump, often mobile, used in wineries for a variety of different tasks in and around wineries:

  • To gently transport grapes without breaking them.
  • To (over)pump must, the freshly pressed but not yet fermented juice of grapes.
  • To transport wine from tanks towards storage, cooling, blending, and bottling.
  • Pumping out sediment remaining in the tanks.

The wine pump is a versatile compact machine that ensures that the quality of the wine remains as good as possible. Therefore, the pumps must meet high standards with unique requirements so that the grapes and liquids do not shake and pulsate too much during pumping (transport). All of this will affect the quality of the wine.

How does it work?

Wine pumps use a wireless transmitter to remotely operate the pumps used in wine production. The system works through radio frequency, which allows for seamless communication between the transmitter and receiver.

With this technology, operators can start, stop, and adjust the speed of pumps from a safe distance. This eliminates the need for manual operation, reducing the risks associated with exposure to chemicals and other hazards in the winery.

Reducing Oxygenation

One of the most significant challenges in wine production is oxygen exposure. When wines are exposed to oxygen, they can develop undesirable flavors and aromas. To prevent this, wineries must minimize the contact between wine and air during production.

Industrial remote control systems play a crucial role in reducing oxygen exposure. By being able to remotely operate pumps, operators can adjust speeds as needed to maintain constant levels of flow. This ensures minimal agitation of the wine, which reduces the risk of oxygenation. This feature ensures your wine maintains its freshness, flavor, and color, offering a superior tasting experience.

Enhancing Efficiency

The use of industrial remote control systems in wineries has significantly improved efficiency. With traditional methods, operators had to physically move from one pump to another to monitor and adjust their speeds. This process was time-consuming and often led to delays in production.

With remote control systems, operators can now control multiple pumps simultaneously, making the process faster and more streamlined. This not only saves time but also reduces labor costs for wineries.
