As Peynaud wrote, “Cleanliness is a basic condition for quality. The whole of enological science would be to no avail if the work itself were done in places that were dirty.”

Our ozone sanitation technologies provide peace of mind that your product integrity is assured.

Vintech Pacific introduced Ozone Sanitation to New Zealand wineries since the early 1990s as an alternative to sanitisers like chlorines and sulphur dioxide.

Ozone is a form of tri-atomic oxygen (O3), which is highly unstable and a powerful oxidant. Environmentally sound, ozonated, cold water can replace traditional hot water and harsh chemical sanitation practices.

  • Barrel cleaning and sanitation
  • Tank cleaning and sanitation
  • Clean-in-place systems
  • General surface sanitation
  • Bottling lines

This technology has the added benefits of reducing water, energy and chemical consumption and because ozone rapidly decays to normal diatomic oxygen (O2), it leaves absolutely no toxic residue.
