Tank mixers allow you to introduce So2, wine additives or fining agents into a tank and get a homogeneous mixture. Makes better wine much, much easier. The mixer with cart and speed control is designed for quality conscious wine makers who want to be able to vary the speed to the size of the tank to reduce shear and possible oxidation at the wine surface.
Your tank(s) will require a 2” Tri-Clamp Ball valve to be installed on the tank (prior to filling!) so that the mixer can be connected, the ball valve opened, and the mixing shaft slid through that vavle and into the tank.
The trolley is adjustable in height and angle so that the mixer can be connected into horizontal ports or into 45 degree mixing ports, like we feature on most Speidel tanks.
This mixer includes a built in fitting for the addition of the optional pump kit. The pump kit includes a self priming rubber impeller pump to pump wine additves, so2, etc directly out of a bucket, through the mixer, while mixing. This saves you the trouble of dumping in from the top and helps ensure and accelerate a great mix.
