AP John Coopers will be displaying its new barrels for cool climate varietals, the Quick Plank oak module system, as well a new pathogen reduction system on Stand 341 during WineTech - The Australian Wine Industry Trade Exhibition to be held at the Adelaide Convention & Exhibition Centre, from July 29 to August 1, 2007.
According to AP John Coopers, the new range of barrels is designed specifically for cool climate varietals. The barrels are made from oak that is seasoned in ‘country of origin’ to produce soft integrating oak flavours with ‘toasting’ to heighten fruit characters.
The range includes:
- Du Bordelais – fine grain French Oak from Berce/ Jupille
- De Bourgogne – fine grain select French Oak from Allier/ Centre of France
- Shenandoah – fine grain American Oak from the Appalachian Range
The company also offers American Oak regional selections such as Missouri and Minnesota.
Also on display, Quick Plank is an innovative proprietary system of stackable Oak modules for use in tank applications. This allows the winemaker to introduce the desired amount of oak with out the need for costly tank infrastructure.
Conveniently sized to facilitate ease of handling and quick, simple installation; the modular nature of Quick Plank enables simple ‘multiple factor’ calculations for application rates.
AP John Coopers will also highlight its new AiroCide PPT airborne pathogen reduction system.
Based on a NASA-developed technology, AiroCide PPT uses photo catalytic oxidation and ultra-violet light to completely destroy airborne bacteria, mould and volatile organic compounds, such as TCA and Brettanomyces.
AiroCide PPT is said to be the advanced and effective airborne pathogen reduction system available and the only air treatment system that, after killing the micro-organisms it comes in contact with, completely destroys them.
The technology is not a filter, so it does not gather or collect harmful organisms. The systems contain the same technology that is used in all AiroCide air purifying products that are used in applications such as food safety and quality assurance, floral preservation, consumer air quality improvement and medical healthcare.
The Airocide units are easy to install and simply plug into 240V power outlets.
