Professional bottleneck freezers for the disgorgement process, in service to the most demanding wineries

The Zoppi srl is a leading manufacturer of bottle neck freezers (CCB series), specific for disgorging (or degorgement) of sparkling wine bottles according to the traditional Champenoise method.
These low temperature liquid chiller allow to cool down a mixture of water and food grade propylene glycol, up to a temperature of -28°C. The freezing process is done by immersing the neck of the bottle into the refrigerated solution for 6-8 minutes.
