WINERY WASTE REMOVAL

WINE LEES

Brenn-O-Kem took the decision in 1995 to expand our offering by providing a service to the wine industry to purchase all wine lees and raw tartrates, which is often a difficult and costly exercise for cellars to dispose of. In addition, Brenn-O-Kem purchases grape seeds and skins from selected cellars in the wine industry.

Our Worcester Branch, Wine Lees Plant, offers the service of handling your winery waste removal. We will arrange collection and removal of your wine lees. Please use the following points below as a guide for your wine lees:

  • Wynmoerslik(WMS) is die bewoording vir alle prut, gis, stabilisasie- en bentonietmoer in ‘n alkohol medium wat minimum 5% alkohol bevat. Prutmoer moet uitgegis wees, en alle tipes wynmoer kan gemeng wees.
  • WMS met alkohol inhoud kleiner as 4% A/V sal gepenaliseer word, maar WMS met alkohol inhoud bokant 10% A/V sal weer premie ontvang.
  • Uitgesluit by WMS is tenk waswater, caustic water, pH masjien regenerasie suurwater en vloer waswater.
  • Enige wynmoer wat besmet is met sintetiese wynsteensuur sal geweier word.
  • Vermy water te alle tye,want water verhoog die pH en verdun die alkohol en verwyder sodoende die beskerming van die wynmoerslik. Verder verhoog dit die vervoerkoste en dit kos meer energie om die alkohol uit te stook.
  • Die WMS kan verder beskerm word deur Metabisulfiet (META) by te voeg. Vry swawel vlakke (FSO2) moet bestuur word tot bo 40 dpm en pH moet verkieslik onder 4,0 wees.
  • WMS tenke moet toegerus word met roerders om vaste stowwe in suspensie te hou, sodat dit makliker kan pomp.
  • Elke vrag sal vroegtydig bevestig word,sodat pompe en pype gereed kan wees as vragmotor opdaag. Dit help ook om WMS te meng/roer voordat vragmotor kom om die laaiproses te vergemaklik.
  • Wynsteen kristalle kan saam met vragmotor ingestuur word na BOK.
  • BOK bepaal kwaliteit en betaal 30 dae na staat vir WMS, Wynsteen wat gelewer is.
  • Bespreek vragte vroegtydig by Maryka by WLP.
