Several plates can be used at the same time on the same wine.
The plates may be glued on a wall or the vat using construction glue (choose a glue with immediate adherence such as those used in building).
Several positioning options are possible. In all cases the plate must be positioned outside whatever container (vat, barrel…) with the spiral visible.
Positioning by container (for the fermentation, ageing, harmony and structure plates):
- 1 plate per barrel to be placed on top, next to the bung
- 2 plates per 500l barrel (1 on the top and 1 underneath)
- 3 plates per vat of ≤120hl (1 on the top, 1 underneath and 1 on the side in the middle)
- 4 plates per vat from 120 to 240 hl (2 on the top, of which 1 on the left and 1 on the right, 2 underneath, of which 1 on the left and 1 on the right)
- 5 plates per vat of more than 240 hl (2 on the top, 2 underneath and 1 on the side in the middle)
Positioning by building, we will indicate the installation points on a plan of your cellar, the quantity of plates indicated below is approximate, and may be increased or decreased according to the geo-biological constraints of the cellar (fermentation, ageing, harmony, structure and storage plates):
- always put 1 plate per vat to neutralize the magnetic field effect *
- 2 plates for a cellar of ≤50m2
- 4 plates for a cellar of ≤200m2
- 6 plates for a cellar of 200 to 300 m2
- 7 plates for a cellar of 300 to 750 m2
- 8 plates for a cellar of 750 to 1000 m2
- 9 plates for a cellar of over 1000m2
*For the vats, use the fermentation plate as soon as the vat is used for fermentations, if the vat is then used for ageing, you may leave it in place. If the vat is used only for ageing, it is recommended to leave the ageing plate fixed permanently. Once this plate is positioned, refer to the densities per cellar for the fermentation, ageing, harmony and structure plates.
The tasting plate can be positioned as follows:
- 1 per electric wine cellar, placed in the middle
- 1 for a wine cellar of less than 20m2 (plan to be studied)
- 2 for a wine cellar of 20m2 to 50m2 (plan to be studied)
