FLOTATION PRINCIPLE AND ITS TYPES
Flotation is a modern method of clarification and stabilisation used in industry and, in particular, in winemaking. The clarification method is based on the properties of insoluble solids to combine with air bubbles and float to the surface of the liquid. As a result, a foam is formed, which can be easily removed from the wine material. Prior to flotation, the wine material is treated with pectolytic enzymes. Flotation is carried out using flotation units, the basis of which is a cylindrical stainless steel vessel.
Methods of flotation in flotation plants:
- Mechanical. The tank is equipped with a stirring device on the inside, which generates vortices. These vortices break the gas fed through special openings into small bubbles;
- Pneumatic. In this method of clarification, the must is saturated with gas from a high-pressure aerator;
- Pneumomechanical. Combined technology, where gas is fed through pipes and then stirred with an agitator.
Clarification in flotation plants is carried out in the following way: after settling, organic substances are added to the wine material to make the foam more dense and form-stable. This can be gelatine, enzymes, enzymes, etc. Further, by means of winemaking pumps, the must enters the flotation unit, where it is saturated with air mixture or carbon dioxide. As a result of the agitation, the solid fragments stick to the gas bubbles and float to the top. In this way the wort is separated into a purified fraction and foam, which is discharged from the tank.
Flotation plant at INPROMINOX: design and advantages
The Bulgarian company INPROMINOX supplies flotation plants for clarification, which can be of two types:
- Continuous apparatus. It is suitable for large wineries, as it allows the processing of large volumes of wine materials. The separated solid fraction goes into a self-contained vessel placed in the main tank and is then transported to the vacuum filters.
- A batch apparatus in which the foam floats to the top and is then skimmed off. The container is rinsed after one cycle.
Advantages of industrial flotators:
- Quality cleaning of wine material;
- Accelerated stabilisation process;
- Economical consumption of energy resources;
- Building enterprise productivity;
- Improving the marketability of products;
- The risks of squashing are minimised to zero;
- Automated management process;
- Reduction of wine material losses.
