Filling or emptying wine from barrels by pushing with gas often draws in oxygen which needs to be purged to prevent damaging the wine; this process of purging is expensive in both time and the cost of the purging gas.
With the expandable bung/cam locking system, the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System available from Spray Nozzle Engineering , makes racking faster and uses much less purging gas, saving time and money; the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System allows for the filling or emptying of 10 or more barrels to each bottle of purging gas used.
The Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System contains a bung that contracts or expands to apply a tight and secure barrel seal, ensuring oxygen drawn into the barrel is kept to a minimum and allows the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System to be used on any sized barrel.
An adjustable wand length adapts to different sized barrels, allowing for locking of the racking wand at the optimum location and works in conjunction with the sight glass to ensure the cleanest wine; a hands-free torch holder allows the wine to be seen in the sight glass during filling or emptying with ease.
A cam lock on the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System ensures that the racking wand is kept at the correct length for clean wine and the retractable locking fingers stabilize the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System during use, thereby reducing manpower during racking; the locking fingers also provide a positive seal without leakage or drawing in necessary air or losing purging gases.
The Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System contains dual gas ports, which allow for easy connection and bleed off, with a safety pressure release valve at 13 psi to prevent damage to the barrel from over pressurizing. The 135º Tri-Clover Sweep prevent hose kinks and reduce weight.
The Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System is made of stainless steel, thereby resisting corrosion and damage, making it extremely durable. The wand is available in two different lengths, with custom lengths available upon request and the Rack-it-Teer Solid Seal System can also be used in conjunction with stainless steel barrels and kegs.
With certain T cylinder connections, the Rack-it-Teer can empty 18-20 barrels per cylinder of gas.
