IDEAL USE:COUNTERFINING TO IMPROVE SETTLING AND COMPACTION.
- In an acid media, Spindasol quickly combines proteins and carbon forming heavy floccules making the sediment extremely compact.
- Advantages of using Spindasol:
- Lees are heavier than when using just bentonite and the settling is much faster and compact.
- Proteins of small molecular weight that might be important for nutrition are not affected by Spindasol
- Only large and unstable proteins are removed
- It does not absorb aromatic molecules or color
- It helps in achieving protein stability down the line
- It does not affect color
- It can be used in conjunction with gelatin, casein and albumin in order to achieve a more compact sediment, minimizing the lees
- Using Spindasol to help settle the fining agents always improves filterability.
DOSAGE RATE & INSTRUCTIONS
- It always depends on the wine or must to be treated, and trials are recommended. As a general rule of thumb, Spindasol needs to be added at 5 to 10 times the amount of protein based clarifier used.
- Mix Spindasol in must/wine using a Venturi or by pumping over. Dose the product either diluted 1:1 with water or at full strength. In musts, add Spindasol before adding gelatin. In wines, wait at least _ hour after the proteic clarifier (albumin, gelatin, casein) is fully homogenized, and then add Spindasol and mix.
