I need to purchase a pump for transferring and filtering wine to and from my conicals / VV storage tanks. I will use it mostly for filtering and filling the blending tank before bottling. I already use an Enolmatic with two filters for bottling.
I was thinking of just a simple March pump but I am nervous about too much agitation after it has been fermented, aged, etc. So I started thinking about a vacuum pump. This would allow me to degas also.
My question / concern is that my final tank for blending and then bottling is a 200 liter VV SS tank. What cfm vacuum pump would I want to suck thru a 5 micron and a 1 micron filter and fill the 200 liter tank? My concern is that this is a good size tank and don’t want to get a vacuum pump that is undersized.
Any suggestions or recommendations is appreciated. Thanks!
