Efficient Wine Barrel Cleaning

Wineries incur significant costs in labour, materials and energy in necessary tank, barrel and cask cleaning.

The robotic tank and container cleaner, marketed by METCO is efficient and thoroughly reliable. It is specially designed to clean the inside of vessels of all descriptions at a greatly reduced effort and cost to the winery operator.

These units have a proven track record in reliability and effectiveness in the cleaning of a wide range of wine containers, ranging from small drums up to tanker trucks and large tanks.

The success of the METCO container cleaning unit is the simple yet ingeniously designed rotary cleaning head and its minimal water consumption adds to your bottom line savings. Minimizing the amount of water used not only means lower operating costs but also less disposal costs, giving both economical savings and benefits to the environment.

With the unit placed inside the tank to be cleaned, the cleaning head, with spray jets, driven by an electric geared motor, or air motor [explosion proof], rotates about its horizontal and vertical axes, resulting in a complete and accurate coverage to every part of the tank's internal surface to be cleaned.

The path of the spray jets creates a complete sphere.

Type URC for single barrel washing with barrel on a rack

Type BRA for single barrels with bung hole at "12'oclock".

A portable unit will suck out the waste water while it cleans the barrel.

 

Cleaning time: 3 to 4 Minutes

The time taken to clean the containers depends on various factors:

  • Degree of contamination
  • Water pressure
  • Water temperature

Used with high pressure water at a temperature up to 100°C, its cleaning power is outstanding and it can operate in any position in a tank or barrel.
