The SARA ADVANCED® technology allows the extraction of volatiles and sensory uniformity.
It is used in natural cork stoppers, SILKTOP® stoppers and VIVA® stoppers.
This is one of the most advanced sterilisation technologies on the market. It serves to improve performance and quality in the post-punching process.
Advantages of the SARA ADVANCED® technology®
DILATION OF PORES
Using the elastic memory of cork, which facilitates the volatilisation and extraction of unwanted compounds through controlled steam.
TCA IS DRASTICALLY REDUCED
Corks are treated with pressurised steam to volatilise TCA and other phenols.
SAFE, CONTINUOUS AND AUTOMATIC PROCESS
Dry steam extraction avoids any risk of cross contamination by microorganisms, as well as maintaining an optimal moisture content to facilitate the production process.
DISTINCTIONS AND RECOGNITION
In 2019 and 2020, the SARA ADVANCED technology® was awarded two distinctions of reference in the sector.
These awards, in addition to many others in the area of Research, Development & Innovation, show the continuous focus and priority of the M.A.SILVA group on the maximum quality of cork stoppers.
