The first step is deciding where you want to sort. Traditionally, I prefer pre- sorting. This means that we intend to sort the fruit prior to destemming. This does not preclude post- destemmer sorting.
The best way to do this is to dump half- ton bins into a receiving hopper, which feeds a constant, metered feed to the sorting table. I prefer a vibratory table which can be positioned before the destemmer and allow time to remove bad bunches of grapes, reptiles, hammers, crustaceans, rocks, etc. Another benefit of the use of a sorter is, as I have always said, no matter the brand of the destemmer, if you supply it with a constant, metered feed of fruit, it will improve your result.
Ideally, I would skip the second stage of sorting, as it is often redundant. But in the case where you choose to sort after the destemmer, the crush rollers that came with the destemmer can be mounted at the end of the crush rollers.
The fruit is then sorted, destemmed, and crushed (or not crushed) and ready to ferment in a one- ton fermenter, or you can dump half - ton bins into a larger fermentor to avoid pumping must. You may still want to pump your must. And this can be done at no detriment to quality with your Waukesha.
But one of our very creative customers came up with a way to dump, destem, sort, and crush right into a TranStore tank, which is a multi- functional storage vessel.
