Separator Technology Solutions
You are here:

Vintech Pacific is the exclusive New Zealand sales agent for Separator Technology Solutions (STS), an Australian manufacturer of high performance, self-cleaning, disk-type centrifuge systems, ideal for the clarification of juice, must, lees, wine and even beer.

A key advantage of the STS system over older centrifuges is a very low oxygen pick-up, as low as 0.02mg of oxygen per litre of wine or beer.

For example, The STS45 model is a disk-type centrifuge with the efficiency to process entire tanks of juice or wine, including the lees. This system ejects solids at a concentration of ~ 95% v/v, so that no further product recovery is necessary by lees filter or RDV.

This superior method to manage solids and to eliminate the need for racking of juices and wines, avoids consequent product losses and quality-value downgrades.
