Stabymatic is revolutionary equipment for tartaric stabilisation; its operation is based on the utilisation of pH-Stab 2.0, that enables it to decrease K+ and Ca++ salts in wine with the aim of stabilising it. The decrease of electro-positive ions enables one to lower the pH value of the treated wines.

Ion exchange resins are obtained from a polymerisation process at high temperatures of Styrene and Divinylbenzene - in a specific % for AEB - with active sulphonic groups, giving high chemical-physical stability and a physical structure in the form of a gel, preventing the adsorption of organic matters.

OPERATION PRINCIPLE OF PH-STAB 2.0

The tartaric stabilisation using resins is obtained by removing the mineral salts with positive charges. The liquid passes through the columns that contain pH-Stab 2.0 exchanging ions and consequently reducing the conductivity and the pH. pH-Stab 2.0 exchanges cations with H+ ions and it further regenerate with Acid+, the sulphurif acid activator of the resin.

The system is designed to have a minimum sensory impact on the treated musts or wines. The type of resin used, the flow of the liquid and the oenological pumps used guarantee a minimum stress of the product; tests carried out demonstrate how there is no combination of SO2 in the entire process.

The perfect relationship between height and diameter of the column according to the size of the exchanging spheres, specially designed by AEB, allows pH-Stab 2.0 to work also with high levels of turbidity.

To optimise the regeneration by Acid+, the machine is equipped with an accomulation system which prepares and circulates the solution in the columns. The system ensures a full recharge without waste of product, compared to other current systems.

The machine is equipped with tubes and dedicated pumps for the wine treatment and recirculation of the regenerative solution, in order to operate in  continuous (one column exchanges, the other regenerates).

The machine has a software specifically designed for must/wine treatments, that allows to work in the most extreme conditions. The automatic alkaline wash, reduced by the higher perfomance of pH-Stab 2.0 reduces, allows the resin to return to its original state by removing any organic substance that may have accumulated on the spheres.

The special formula of pH-Stab 2.0 allows to switch between red wine to white with a specially programmed whitening operation with a simple operator input.

    Treatments scheduled by target pH and volume to be treated

Stabymatic can operate in 3 modes: automatic, semi-automatic and manual.

AUTOMATIC MODE

The machine operates automatically, both in the exchange and in the regeneration. By setting the target pH and the volume to treat, Stabymatic alternates cycles of regeneration and exchange, until it reaches the input setting.
Among the available options, we can set the wine flux during the exchange and the flushing period.

SEMI-AUTOMATIC MODE

The system allows one to perform all the functions by selecting the desired function:


  • • Load H2O accumulation

  • • Recirculate accumulation

  • • Drain H2O Discharge/Regen. with nitrogen column

  • • Rinse column with H2O

  • • Drain wine with nitrogen

  • • Rinse wine tubes with H2O

  • • Refill column with H2O

  • • Empty direct accumulation

MANUAL MODE

By using the touch screen the operator can select individual task. In addition, the machine has a series of special cycles that allow one to optimise the operation of the pH-Stab 2.0 or enhance the machine’s performance.

Stabymatic allows to work at different speed to better suit the type of wine/must and the needs of the cellar.
