Screw Cap

Screw cap

FineCap – 30x60mm screw cap

Our FineCap screw cap is the improvement of the classic BVS (=Bague Vin Suisse).  The difference is that the FineCap can balance better the unevenness of the bottle’s mouth and because of the new sealing system it can withstand higher internal pressure.

Safe, homogenous, recyclable and reasonable price product, which can be produce in large quantities. This is what our FinCap products like!

Even the thinnest aluminium create extremely effective protection without affect the taste or the smell of the products.

Considering the winemaker’s needs aluminium closures with the correctly choose liner provide a perfect seal, preventing any liquid leak and stopping any other flavors from getting into the wine. In addition, they guarantee the continuous maturation of the wine, eliminate premature oxidation and to make transport and storage – from the cellar to the consumer – easy to handle.

You can choose the perfect colour for you from our 62 standard colours, but it is also possible to make any colour, embossing or other design from 1200 pieces.

Natural cork closure

Natural cork closures The raw cork closures are cut of the above-mentioned slices mechanically which are calibrated, washed, dried, sorted several times and subjected to regular laboratory examinations in order that the incidental fermentation and mould contamination– responsible for “cork-taste”– can be excluded. The natural cork closures mean the elite, premium category of the closure types because they are made of 100% natural cork and possess the above unique physical properties.

The features of natural cork closures and the bottles closed with them are the following:

  • They can be kept for an unlimited time therefore they are excellent for making old wines.
  • They can be kept lain
  • They are suitable for fermentation in the bottle.
  • There are several quality categories, which mean aesthetic categories because the number of holes on the sheath of the closure does not influence the quality of closing.
  • Owing to the number of categories, the purchasers’ needs can be satisfied because the variation of the purchase price shows high spread as well.

Sizes:
38×24 mm, 45×24 mm, 49×24 mm, 49×26 mm

Quality (aesthetic) classes:
Flor, Extra, Super, 1st class, 2nd class

Champaign closure

There are several popular champagne closure types available at the market, which are the following:

  • agglomerated, that is to say an agglomerated closure with straight wall, which is different from agglomerated closures used for winery purposes only to a little extent.
  • one-disk agglomerated, which is produced similarly to the procedure of the 2TOP (1+1), with the difference that there is only a natural cork disk on one end of the agglomerated part and the sensor located on the champagne bottling equipment turns the closures in a way that always the natural cork disk should be in contact with the champagne.
  • two-disk agglomerated, it is the highest-quality champagne closure, its structure is the following: agglomerated body + natural cork disk + natural cork disk, that is to say, both natural cork disks are on the same end by insuring perfect closing in this way.

Sizes:
44×29,5 mm, 47×29 mm, 47×29,5 mm, 47×30,5 mm

Agglomerated cork closure

We can state almost with utmost certainty that regarding the popularity of the agglomerated cork closure, it is at the same level as the natural cork closure, but regarding its spread, it is a market leader all over the world. The closure is made of agglomerate, that is to say of granules with a grain size of around 4-mm diameter. The production technology is the same as the processes mentioned with the megakork closure that is to say the paste generated is cast into a cylindrical moult, slit to various sizes, its edges are rounded. The difference lies with the grain size and the binding material because in the case of agglomerated closures it is a synthetic material.

It’s features:

  • low price
  • it has a wide choice
  • it can be preserved for 1 year
  • it is suitable mainly for bottling fresh, light wines aimed at consumption within a short time
  • owing to the applied production processes and the constant control, the quality of the closures is always the same

Sizes:
33×21 mm, 33×22 mm, 33×23 mm, 35×21 mm, 35×22 mm, 35×23 mm, 35×24 mm, 38×21 mm, 38×22 mm, 38×23 mm, 38×24 mm, 42×23 mm, 44×23 mm, 44×24 mm

Cognac closure

For closing distilled alcoholic drinks and during wine tasting in wineries. There are very many types and sizes at the market.

Regarding its appearance, shape: it is similar to a letter “T”– therefore it is called “T” very often– that is to say a natural cork or colmated closure or incidentally synthetic closure with 18-20-mm diameter is seated into a plastic or turned hard-wood cap with 27-29-mm diameter and 8-15-mm height.

Technology – Corks

The production technology of the cork closure finished product applied at our Firm

The closures distributed by us arrive as semi-finished products from Portugal, this means that the closures are cut to size and they have passed the various quality and aesthetic classification already. The closures in that form are not suitable for bottling yet, there are still some technological steps until the completion of the finished product, which means around 48 hours in time.

De-dusting

As the first step of production, we de-dust the cork closures received in jute sacks by using a machine similar to a big, airy spin-dryer.
We take off the cork dust generated as a consequence of the mechanical effects of handling and transport from the surface of the closures in order to prevent such fine crumbles, dust from entering incidentally the wine.

Superscription

We can provide the cork closures with own company logo, name, or, even in the simplest case, a bunch of grapes as requested, which means that we print the asked graphics with the ink approved for food industry.
Based on individual agreement we undertake to place a logo on both ends of the closure by applying a burning technology. (It is important to remark that we need the cliché of the graphics for superscription, which includes the negative image of the graphics. The completion deadline necessary for preparing the cliché is around one week).
After superscription, the closures are left to dry for minimum 12 hours in order that the ink used for superscription can dry perfectly, otherwise the superscription would blur and the closure would become smudgy.

Surface treatment

We treat the surface of the closures provided with the superscription and dried perfectly already by using a machine functioning on a principle similar to the washing machine – used every day -, which means that we apply a very thin silicon layer on the closure surface.
The silicon utilised is – of course – a certified material suitable for usage in food industry. The thin, film-like silicon layer generated as a result of surface treatment plays a huge role in both bottling– because the closure surface becomes slippery – and in closing – because it means a further security in order that incidental leakage should not appear.
During surface treatment, before starting the application of the silicon layer, we de-dust the closures again, but this operation is done by the surface treatment machine and a high-performance dust extractor.
After surface treatment, closures are left to dry again because if we do not wait until the silicon layer dries, then the closures might heat after packing.

Counting, disinfection, vacuum- packings

These three steps are done with a very modern piece of equipment, within one work process. The surface-treated closures are transferred by a vibrating conveyor to the counting machine which counts into the bags the exact closure quantity requested by the client.
The vacuum packing machine extracts air from the open bags during closing and at almost the same time, it injects 1.5-3 gram of SO2 gas for disinfecting purposes then welds the mouth of the bag by achieving the wine-sterile condition.
In order to satisfy the clients’ needs at a high level, our Firm replaced the complete machine line of the earlier producer in years 2004–2005 with a new, fast and modern machine line produced in Portugal, by which, in addition to the improvement of the necessary quality, we achieved the growth of our quantity capacity as well.
