Kreyer VinInfo automatic temperature control system

POA - Please Call 01404 892100

The Kreyer VinInfo automatic temperature control system is manufactured by internationally renowned Kreyer, who have over 40 years of specialist knowledge in wine temperature control at all stages of vinification. Kreyer systems are designed to meet the rigorous requirements of modern winemaking. They are also ideal for the temperature control of beer, cider, juice, spirits and soft drinks (see Application).

The VinInfo computerised management system is a flexible automated system, which can be controlled from your PC or laptop (via internet). The system sets, monitors and records the temperature conditions of each tank and fermentation rates through a PC or VinInfo terminal. Records can be used to set future batches ensuring consistency of fermentation and storage conditions. Fermentation rates can also be controlled by CO₂ monitoring. VinInfo can can include the following functions:

  • Tank temperature control
  • Pumps and cooling unit control
  • Dosing of oxygen (micro/macro process)
  • Fermentation by CO2 emission levels (sugar conversion)
  • Air-cooling and humidity level control
  • Timed-operation equipment (air-punching, pumped-flooding of the tank)
  • Reports, graphs and archive

VinInfo is a modular and flexible system. The building blocks of the VinInfo management system are the BU - the ‘Basic Unit’. Each tank and each additional item (pumps, room acclimatization units etc.) is regulated by its own BU. All BU in the winery/production area are connected with a single BUS cable running between them and then to the Server-PC. More BUs for the control of additional equipment can be added at any time and at any place along the cable line. A single BUS cable runs from one BU to the next. VinInfo Terminals located at intervals on the winery/production area walls give an immediate display of each tank’s values and room temperature values. It provides a 12 hour emergency service, securing the data in case of a powercut. The Terminal is related to the Server PC as a master-and-slave system, and will overtake control in case of power-cut. Warning messages can be sent out via email and SMS to report tank temperature malfunctions, cooling unit powercut and other warnings. See Files for the VinInfo brochure.

Whether you require a complete temperature control system for all or selected function above, with ringmains, with/without Speidel tanks, we offer a comprehensive package including CAD modelling where required. See Kreyer tab below.

Kreyer temperature control equipment is widely are used for wine, beer and soft drink applications.

For wine

Temperature control can be a real asset to wineries in terms of optimising the consistency, the qualities, and the aromas characteristic of English and Welsh wines. Temperature can be controlled at product tank level; centrally via terminal or remotely; or via air conditioning for storage areas. These key temperature control functions can be met with Kreyer temperature control equipment:

  • Cold settling of must and juices
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO₂ monitoring
  • Cold stabilisation of wines
  • Malolactic fermentation control (with heating option standard on most units)
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to carbonation

For beer

Brewers are looking to temperature control as a way of ensuring quality and consistency of their product. Temperature can be controlled at the room level, tank level, or product can be directly cooled or heated. This can ensure that wort is cooled at the rate you want, fermentation occurs at the rate that you want, and that your beer is stored in the conditions you want. Controlling temperature can also help your product retain some of the delicate flavours which can be easily lost. Chilling is also essential where beer is to be carbonated. These key temperature control functions can be met:

  • Rapid cooling of wort
  • Fermentation control, including control by CO₂ monitoring
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to (and for effective) carbonation

For cider

Cider makers can use temperature control to optimise the consistency and quality of their product and chill it prior to carbonation. Temperature can be controlled at product tank level; centrally via terminal or remotely; or via air conditioning for storage areas. These functions can be met with Kreyer temperature control equipment:

  • Fermentation control
  • Long term control of product storage temperature
  • Product chilling prior to (and for effective) carbonation

For Juice & soft drink production these units can be used to chill the product prior to (and for effective) carbonation.

Kreyer temperature control equipment is applicable to other drink applications, including spirits & mead; please contact us on 01404 892100 to discuss your requirements.

The Little Beer Corporation

Kreyer - 40 Years of Specialist Knowledge: The internationally renowned brand Kreyer is founded on 40 years of specialist knowledge in wine temperature control at all stages of vinification. The Kreyer range is designed to meet the rigorous requirements of modern winemaking. It includes equipment for refrigeration and temperature control at all stages of winemaking, either at tank level, room level or through direct cooling or heating. The Kreyer brand is one of the WTG-Quantor brands.

A Proven Reputation: Kreyer cooling and temperature control equipment has a well-earned, proven reputation in wineries throughout the world. Kreyer have developed innovative comprehensive and computerised systems for temperature regulation, CO2 monitoring, micro/macro oxidisation, and room temperature control. Heat-exchangers and room acclimatisation units complement their range.

Company Development: The Kreyer brand was founded in southern France. Company expansion led to the development of larger production facilities and to sales offices being set up in other European countries and the USA. In 1998 the company changed ownership and was incorporated into Wine Technology GmbH (WTG) an internationally renowned specialist in wine cooling, based in Germany in the heart of the Mosel winegrowing region. WTG is now represented in all major wine-growing countries worldwide, incorporating over 40 countries, including Chile, South Africa and Australia.
