SEEPEX - Wine Industry Pump Solutions

Improve Must Transfer

The transfer of must is a critical aspect of winemaking that has a direct impact on a vineyard’s bottom line. Must transfer requires a pump that can meet a variety of requirements in order to produce a high quality juice, a large yield, and a product that contains minimal solids at drain.

SEEPEX progressive cavity pumps are positive displacement pumps that minimize shearing and agitation and limit oxidization, all key requirements for wineries. They are also self-priming, have adjustable flow rates, and are tolerant of sediment and solids, giving them the ability to efficiently handle waste products.

Engineered to handle mash, must, lees, pomace, pump-over, yeast, whole grapes and other viscous materials, pc pumps excel in a variety of processes within wineries. SEEPEX progressive cavity pumps have exhibited operational improvements at vineyards that previously utilized centrifugal or rotary lobe pumps during crush and other steps throughout the wine making process.

SEEPEX’s user-friendly maintenance design, Smart Conveying Technology (SCT), provides the fastest maintenance times in the industry, decreasing pump life-cycle costs. Progressive cavity pumps with SCT do not need to be removed for maintenance or accommodate space for rotor and stator removal. SCT allows the stator to be re-adjusted giving a significantly longer lifespan.
