Avon, Minn.--Studies in wine and oak barrels have shown that toasted oak complexity does not come from wine penetrating into staves but rather from variations in the process of toasting the barrel next to an open flame. While a barrel's toast may be labeled as "Medium," the inside surface actually develops a gradient of temperatures when toasted. It is this gradient that creates a subtle variety of toasted oak aromas and flavors and a more interesting and layered complexity in the wine. Bordeaux Red Infusion Spiral barrel packs replicate a barrel toasting gradient by distributing a mix of four different toast levels among six Spirals. Designed specifically for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, the result is a balanced quality on the nose and palate comparable to the aromas and flavors found in fine barrel-aged wines of Bordeaux.

Lechler’s Spinner series of tank cleaning nozzles has recently been redesigned and improved. In addition to being more hygienic than before, the Spinner now has more powerful jet sprays for more effective cleaning. The Spinners are designed for cleaning small to mid-size tanks and also for fitting into narrow port holes of those tanks. The two standard models are the Micro-Spinner (for tanks up to 4’ in diameter) and the Mini-Spinner (for tanks 4’-9’ in diameter). Each Spinner has high flow slot orifices which produce large sprays from a small head. The head is balanced for easy rotation with virtually no vibration. This balance allows every Spinner to operate successfully in any position. The Micro is good for cleaning drums, barrels, kegs, and ductwork and fits into a 1” port opening. The Mini can clean small to mid-size tanks and fits into a 2” port opening. Depending upon the model chosen, flow rates range from around 10 to 21 gpm @ 40 psi. Each Spinner is free spinning and made of 316L stainless steel with a double row of 304 stainless steel ball bearings. These materials are in compliance with FDA regulations, making the Spinners especially appropriate for use in the Food and Beverage industries, as well as for Chemical and Pharmaceutical applications.
