Nextteq LLC, a leader in the industrial hygiene and safety industries, offers the Gastec 5DH Sulfur Dioxide direct-read length-of-stain dosimeter tube as an inexpensive way to monitor airborne levels of sulfur dioxide. The wine industry utilizes sulfur dioxide as an antioxidant and preservative. The Gastec 5DH passive dosimeter tube is placed in the crates when sulfur dioxide is applied to the grapes. Measurements may be taken as soon as 1-hour after placement. With a measuring range of 10 to 600 ppm and sampling time between 1 to 5 hours, Gastec 5DH dosimeter tubes allow anyone to accurately take a TWA (time weighted average) measurement without prior expertise or extensive training.

Criveller Group introduced a new automatic sorting table with two vibrating sections at different levels to sort out shot berries, seeds, stems, debris and jacks. In the first sorting area, shot berries fall through slotted screens into collection drawers that can be cleaned while the table is in operation. Grapes then pass through the “core of the table” that is based on a patented design that consists of an adjustable slotted screen set at an incline. Berries fall through the screen, while stems and other debris are directed to side discharge channels. The final stage of the table is for manual sorting. The stainless steel table is equipped with a frequency drive and set on wheels but also comes with adjustable legs. Details: criveller.com

The new M7 and M7+7 Rocket filters available through Mio Vigneto Products in San Ramon, Calif., are based on a patented filtering system that employs rotating membranes. Dwight J. Busalacchi, president of Mio Vigneto, said the new filtration system operates at low pressure and does not heat the wine through friction. The filter employs ceramic discs that rotate and collect particulates from the wine. As the disks rotate through the wine substances are removed from the filter disks providing a “self-cleaning” effect. The M7 model can filter 4,200 liters in a 15-hour cycle.
