The goal of the Ace venturi is to provide winemakers with an easy to use and clean tool that enables a large amount of air to be gently entrained into wine during pumpovers. This process allows oxygen to be introduced to the liquid, promoting yeast propagation and helping fermentation. The 3-piece Ace venturi device offers high performance and is simple to use, easy to clean, and inexpensive to purchase. By utilizing a slightly customized stainless steel T-fitting as the structural housing of the device and designing the other parts to nest within that T-fitting, this product's price is far below that of its more complex competition. The Ace was designed and assembled in the Napa Valley.
The Ace is made of a stainless steel T with FDA compliant cast urethane inserts. Each venturi comes complete with one stainless steel T-fitting as well as the two venturi components necessary to assemble the device. Assembly takes only a few seconds, and no custom gaskets or unique accessories are needed during the process -- just a couple of standard Tri-Clover gaskets and clamps to hook it up to your existing system!
Available in 1.5" and 2" sizes.
