Albrigi Gravitank (Gravity Discharge Tanks)

GRAVITANK - Gravity Discharge Tanks

The Gravitank has a floor design for the extraction of the marc using gravity. This design makes the skins extraction process clean and simple without the requirement for manual labour and mechanization. The long legs allow the discharge of the skins into a bin or even directly into a press via a chute.

These tanks are usually manufactured as a closed top version with ‘pump over pipe’ or plunger. But they Gravitank can also be manufacture with an open top as a better version of the pinot pot design.
