As the global leader in alcohol and flavor management for over 30 years, ConeTech has always prioritized quality.
Quality, defined as the best service, using cutting edge technology and a team of experts to de-alcoholize wine, beer, cider, spirits and other alcoholic beverages reducing by a small amount or all the way to 0.05% abv if desired, while preserving 100% of the natural aromas and flavors.
To ensure this quality ConeTech uses only Very Low Temperature Distillation (VLTD) technologies including the Spinning Cone Column and most recently GoLo to remove alcohol.
The Spinning Cone Column (SCC), once considered the premium method for dealcoholization, enables the highly selective and virtually total capture of completely undamaged fragile aroma/flavor compounds, and then alcohol as necessary, from any liquid. This is achieved by a combination of low temperatures, brief residence times, and very thin, turbulent films. A revolutionary feature of Spinning Cone Column design is the use of multiple moving parts inside a vacuum column.
A new and improved VLTD option was developed based upon the operational and de-alcoholization expertise of ConeTech paired with the engineering and distillation expertise of Logichem in South Africa. GoLo technology not only ensures the same exceptional quality de-alcoholization that ConeTech has always delivered using the SCC, but as well offers many additional benefits including;
- 100% capture of volatile aromas and flavor compounds, reduced residence time approximately 7 minutes, very low temperatures not to exceed 48C with a -90kpa vacuum, and reduced product losses during de-alcoholization due to a rectification of the alcohol.
- A single pass process to remove essence, dealcoholize and rectify the alcohol.
- Improved analytics of the finished de-alcoholized wine reducing finishing work necessary to product quality low and no alcohol beverages.
- Improved Utility utilization, no waste stream, small footprint and a low capital cost.
