Steam cleaning wine barrels
Oak barrels are among the biggest investments a winery will make. Dupray industrial steam cleaners are a safe and effective treatment, protecting the longevity of the barrel and thereby increasing the productivity a wine maker can get out of each oak barrel. This is both cost effective and eco-friendly. Steam also works deep into wood pores, releasing tartrates, old wine and bitter tannins absorbed inside the barrel to revitalize them without damaging the oak char. Steam can also be used to rehydrate the barrels.
