VAUCHER BEGUET TVE / TVETM
Vibrating Sorting Tables
Located near Lyon, France, Vaucher Beguet has been producing vibrating sorting tables, automated conveyer/elevator systems and other grape processing equipment for the French wine industry for decades. The Vaucher Beguet sorting tables are used extensively in the quality houses of Bordeaux and the Alsace.
The "TVETM 750" vibrating sorting table offers both benefits to wine quality and ease of operation. The TVETM can be used both before and after destemming. When used before destemming clusters with rot, green berries, leaves, etc. can easily be identified and removed manually. After destemming, berries with jacks, vegetal matter, crushed berries, green berries and more can be removed from the lot. In addition to manual sorting, vibration causes small waste and free run juice to automatically fall through slotted areas located along the top of the table. Juice and waste is collected in a tank where it can be further separated, blended or discarded. Overall wine quality benefits dramatically from the selection of the finest berries, while still achieving a processing rate of up to 8 tons/hour.
This vibrating system also holds advantages over the competition as its motion is gentle, preventing berries from "jumping" and it is incredibly easy to clean and sanitize (all stainless steel surfaces). The vibrating table also holds advantages over belted tables due to product being immediately spread by the vibration, avoiding clumping of product. Sorting tables are available in lengths from 3.5 to 5 meters which can accommodate anywhere from 4-10 workers.
