Wine

Mixtec have many hundreds of wine mixer installations throughout the country, helping our wine makers safely store their product in silos from 20m3 to over 240m3.  The Mixtec model 5040 mixer designed specifically for the wine industry comes in a range of sizes to suit your silo.  This mixer is a cost effective solution used for white wine applications. It is complete with a mating curved tank flange to suit the customer’s tank and stainless steel stool that presets the mixer angle into the tank for effective blending.  A large diameter, high flow, low power hydrofoil impeller driven by geared motor provides the flow required while an internal mechanical seal mounted to the stool seals the shaft entry to the tank.

Our side entry agitators are used predominately in bulk wine silos for cold stabilisation, fermentation and simple blending operations. This technology assists with producing a uniform, high quality product and increases productivity by minimising the time required to process the wine through critical stages.

In addition to bulk storage mixers, Mixtec builds custom mixers to suit a range of other duties in the wine industry.  These include clamp on mixers for additives blending, larger fixed top entry mixers, mobile tanks with in-built mixer and mixers for bentonite and pearlite.

FOR GENERAL QUERIES

Just a note to say what a pleasure it has been doing business with you and your team these last 5 years, supplying and maintaining our MixTec agitators we have on our large wine tanks here at Marisco Winery.

The performance of the equipment is 1st class and any maintenance required has been dealt with promptly and always to successful conclusions with a very high level of professionalism.

As we contemplate winery expansion plans it is with great comfort knowing Marisco will have Western Engineering and MixTec agitators on board to ensure we have the best available equipment and support.

Thankyou Richard for your expertise and I do look forward to our continuing to do business together.
