SENSORY STANDARDIZATION

SARA ADVANCED®

NEW INNOVATION
State-of-the-art technology has been developed to sterilize and improve the quality of natural corks, Silktop Advanced® corks and Viva® corks.

OBJECTIVES
Develop a preventive and curative method to control TCA and other phenols of natural cork stoppers.
Improve quality results in post-punching process.

TCA IS DRAMATICALLY REDUCED
Corks are treated with pressurized steam to volatilize TCA and other phenols.

PORES DILATATION
During the process, the elastic memory of cork is used. As it expands, the steam reaches deeper into the pores of each cork stopper to facilitate the volatilization and extraction of all undesirable compounds.

THE SYSTEM ENSURES A CONTINUOUS AND AUTOMATIC PROCESS
Dry steam extraction avoids any risk of cross contamination by microorganismsm, as well as maintaining an optimal moisture content to facilitate the production process.
