Benefits of using Vogelsang pumps for wineries
Why you should use the wine pump

The Vogelsang rotary lobe pump has significant advantages over traditional pumps used in the wine industry:  

  • reduced wine oxygenation
  • high suction capacity
  • resitant to dry-running
  • reduced noise level due to quiet pumping
  • service and maintenance friendly

Our pumps are self-priming up to a depth of approximately nine meters, but can operate under dry conditions and up to 12 bar. They can flow in both directions, and solid material up to 90 mm in size can be moved easily. As our wine pumps are smaller and more lightweight than traditional pumps of comparable power, they can also be used in hard-to-reach, tight spaces.

Thanks to the special design of the Vogelsang pumps and its innovative QuickService concept, the service and maintenance is done on site, in nearly no time and can be done by any winery operator.

The small rotary lobe pump
Wine pump VX100

The wine pump VX100 from Vogelsang is our smallest model, with capacities from 1 to 30 m3/h and pressures from 4 to 7 bar. This model VX100 is compact and very easy to transport in the mobile version. This makes it ideal for using as a main pumping station for small and medium-size wineries, where all possible media are pumped with only a single pump, as for example whole grapes, must, lees or pomace. For pumping whole grapes, we deliver a pump system including the wine pump and a hopper, which makes the pumping easier. Thanks to their compact and lightweight design, the maintenance needed is done in nearly no time and in a very easy and light way.

The compact wine pump
Wine pump VX136

The wine pump VX136 is our all-rounder. With capacities from 5 to 137 m3/h and pressures from 5 to 10 bar in the Q version and from 10 to 12 bar in the QD version, it becomes the ideal pump for the majority of the medium-size wineries. The mobile version of the model VX136 can be used on smaller wineries as a central pump station and for many different applications. The pump in a mobile version is very easy to move and to maintain. As an alternative it can be used as a fixed pump for bigger wineries, and only for certain applications, for example for bottling or cooling. The wine pump VX136  can also be configured as a complete pump system equipped with a hopper for pumping whole grapes.

The sturdy wine pump
Wine pump VX186

The wine pump VX186 is our most powerful pump system for the wine industry. With capacities from 100 to 724 m3/h and pressures from 3 to 10 bar in the Q version and from 6 to 12 bar in the QD version, it becomes the optimal pump for big wineries. The main application of this model is for transfer grapes with or without stalks. The pump can be installed with a special hopper and together with a screw conveyor to pump gently the grapes into the pump chamber. Thanks to the high capacity of this model, another application is to install the pump fixed in the winery and use it as where a big capacity is needed. The size of this model is small if we compare its capacity with a similar progressive capacity pump, providing extra advantages.
