Wine Barrel Cellar Humidity Control

Polar Africa’s humidity control solutions procure several benefits for the wine farm/producer, viz.

  1. Reducing wine evaporative losses in the order of 8% to 12% p.a. by half – less topping up and more bottom line
  2. Slower maturity rate producing higher quality wine than the norm
  3. No fungal and mould growth as both technologies utilize ‘dry’ mist to increase and maintain correct moisture levels without ‘wetting’ the internal air of the wine cellar
  4. Phenomenal ROI (return on investment) in a matter of months in many instances
