Wine Tank, Cask & Pipe Cleaning Solution NSF A-1 Approved
Great wine depends on clean, sanitary equipment. WISE Wine Tank, Cask & Pipe Cleaning Solution is a highly efficient and economical green alternative to the health and ecological hazards of caustic products like Trisodium Phosphate and Sodium Hydroxide. It is harmless to indoor air quality; it contains no VOC’s or toxic vapors. National Sanitary Foundation (NSF) approved for indirect food contact A-1.
This product must be diluted with water in order to work properly. Suggested dilution is 200 to 1. This means 1 gallon of concentrate will make 200 gallons of usable product
The active ingredients in our Wine Tank Cleaning Solution (WTCS) are sub micron sized particulates called colloidal micelles that effectively cut through the carbon bonds in organic molecules and emulsify organic matter. Tartrates, proteins and other organic compounds are broken down, suspended and safely removed from wine tank, barrel and process equipment.
Features & Advantages
This product will save you time, trouble, and money! Here are the advantages:
We clean at 60-70ºF, saving energy. One batch can be used for several tanks.
WTCS is recommended for all types of wine cleaning programs, ranging from manual to automated CIP (clean-in-place) systems. It effectively removes heavy tartrates (calcium tartrate, potassium tartrate, potassium bitartrate) as well as protein deposits from tank surfaces and process equipment.
When the micelles in WTCS penetrate into tartrates and proteins, they encapsulate and break them into particles that constantly repel each other, making it impossible for them to stick back together or redeposit on a surface.
This product is biodegradable, non-toxic, noncaustic, non-flammable.
WTCS does not contain California Proposition 65 Chemicals. This is an ultra concentrated product. Handle such concentrates with protection to eyes, skin, clothing and do not inhale spray.

This product must be diluted with water in order to work properly. Suggested dilution is 200 to 1. Shake or agitate well before using.
When using product, increased dwell time and agitation may be more effective than a more concentrated solution.
Wise WTCS is most effective when used in Clean-in-Place (CIP) systems.
WTCS is extremely effective in removing tartrates, proteins, yeasts and molds that accumulate inside wine tanks. These unwanted organic compounds can be completely removed from tank surfaces by using a diluted (1 part concentrate to 200 parts water) mixture. In a CIP system, the diluted Wine Tank solution should circulate throughout the tank for a minimum 45 minutes. For heavy duty cleaning*, increase dwell time and/or agitation.
*On heavily soiled surfaces, agitation may be necessary before all the residual organic matter is emulsified. Agitation speeds up results, as it facilitates the process that breaks down dirt and proteins and keeps them in the water solution.
