A non-caustic power used for CIP (Clean-In-Place) applications in wineries to remove residue, staining and tartare deposits.
Low-hazard product that is much safer that caustic-based cleaners
Requires less PPE when using
Contains a special low foam surfactant to give rapid wetting and penetration of tartrate deposits
Assists with brown film removal, especially if used during vintage
Low foaming even when used through high pressure units such as Gamajet and Fury as well as CIP systems
High levels of sequestrant gives rapid removal of built-up scale in tanks and equipment
Vinclean is recommended for cleaning tanks in wineries to remove light to medium tartrate deposits. It can also be used to clean inside wine tankers.
Tartare Soiling: Use the amounts shown below usage guide. After a while, the operators will be able to establish the optimum amounts needed for each tank. The thickness of the tartrate deposit can vary dependant on the age of the wine, type, how long it has been in the tank and process in use such as cold stabilisation.
Waste storage tanks, for lees and must, may require higher concentrations of Vinclean.
Light: Small crystals up to 2mm scattered over the surface with a lot of uncovered stainless steel still exposed.
Medium: Small crystals up to 2mm covering most of the surface.
Heavy: Larger crystals over 2mm covering most, or all, of the surface.

- Mix with warm water to form a thin slurry before adding the tank. If added directly to the tank, the powder tends to clump, increasing the dissolution time. If the water is normally added to a 200L drum, then pumped in. Simply sprinkle the Vinclean into the drum whilst filling and then pump with the tank.
- Circulate with sprayball or other system for 20 - 30 minutes.
- Monitor by testing pH and by visual assessment. Maintain pH above 9 to ensure continued effectiveness.
- Drain tank when clean, then rinse with water and finally a mildly acidic rinse.
Vinclean is a cleaner not a sanitiser. If sanitising is required, sanitise tank using your preferred method.
Tank Cleaning: Use Vinclean at dilutions from 1kg/100L (1% w/v) to 3kg/100L (3% w/v) dependant on the degree of soiling. Warm water is recommended for slurry preparation before adding to the tank.
Fragrance: No added fragrance
pH level: 11.8 at 1% w/w
Incompatible surfaces: N/A
