The ORION™ Tank is the Big Brother to our Apollo Egg Fermentor

A current trend in winemaking is the Egg shaped tank. Winemakers report superior fermentation results in these tanks due to the shape promoting both internal convection mixing and cap concentration.

Principally designed as a 2 ton closed fermentor, the ORION™ Tank may also be used for long term storage. As a fermentor, the ORION™ offers a number of advantages over open bin ferments.

This photo shows the matching index marks on the tank and pallet. Note the tank can be indexed in 90 degree increments to orient fixtures like valves or doors in relation to the forklift pockets in the pallet. Tank is shown in a marble finish but will be white in production. Pallets will be black in production. The small flat on the bottom of the tank can have a bulkhead fitting installed to give complete flushout for cleaning operations when tank is located on pallet and elevated on a forklift. Forklift or pallet jack entry on two sides.
