Sequential modulated injection of compressed air or gas.
Air Mixing M.I.®, a 2020 WINnovation Award winner
Something has changed in red wine production!
The well-known technique of decompacting the cap with compressed air, injected manually via a cane or automatically via a structure to deliver air bubbles, had never been seriously been considered as an alternative to the traditional techniques (remontage, pigeage, délestage), but only as a complementary technique for small vats.
The new original technique called AIR-MIXING™ M.I. (modulated injection), developed and patented by PARSEC, uses the action of several injectors placed laterally around the tank.
The combined and sequential synergistic sequences of pauses and small jets create a wave-like movement in the liquid inside the tank which, in a few seconds, completely decompacts the cap by inundating it with liquid.
The AIR MIXING ™ system is protected by the following patents and patent applications:
