The submerged vinegar plant LABU for professional and fast transformation of wines and fruit wines into vinegar complies with the CE norm and is available in two different types.
With the vinegar plant LABU all parts in contact with vinegar are made of stainless steel 1.4301, as well as food safe and acid resistant plastic connections in the liquid flow. The production system is a submerged system with a in suspension of the vinegar nut. This prevents the formation of a vinegar nut and optimal conversion results can be achieved.
When produced correctly, the end product has the colour of the raw material, complete oxidation without acetaldehyde and a minimum residual alcohol content of less than 0.1% vol. Production can be assumed at Classical LABU on a weekly basis with about 150 % of the filling quantity of the plant. The production quantity depends on the raw material, the initial alcohol content and the variety of products and can vary from plant to plant. The Pro plants produce finished vinegar in a 12 hour rhythm. Acid values of up to 10% are thus possible without any problems.
