Meet ScottPlus™—clean, natural cork processed and delivered at scale with the Scott Laboratories legendary promise of quality and integrity.
SCOTTPLUS™ DRY-STEAM — A 2-STEP PROCESS
By combining heat-tunnel inspection with new Dry-Steam cork technology, we can improve cork quality at scale and with greater reliability than any individual inspection alone.
OUR QC SPECS & PORTUGUESE OPERATIONS
Each cork is run through thermal/warming-sensory heat tunnels that quickly and effectively volatize aromatic compounds.
Corks from the first step are run through our Dry-Steam process. This process improves on the lot neutrality and significantly reduces TCA.
- Visual Inspection
- Sample Testing
- In-house Inspection
- Checks & Balances
THE RESULTS ARE IN...
In a March 2020 study conducted to quantify the improvement from Dry-Steam technology, all lots showed improvement using Dry-Steam technology with all lots having > 99% of corks showing levels below detection.
