Oak barrels are one of the greatest investments and ongoing expenses in a winery

We are now approaching the peak time of year for wine barrel cleaning in a summer season, and Duplex Cleaning wanted to provide you with some information about wine barrel cleaning’s latest cleaning technology, “steam vapour”.

Our 94% dry steam systems can:
  • Clean with up to 95% less water
  • “Deep clean” with no chemicals required
  • Thermally sanitised to eliminate bretanomyces in the oak
  • Rehydrate and revitalise barrels to restore oak flavours
  • Increases wine barrel life investment by up to 25%

What can our steamers clean?

With a selection of specially developed tools for winery equipments, our steam industrial cleaners can be used to efficiently clean:

  • Wine Barrels

Wine barrels can be cleaned, detartrated and thermally disinfected with +100°C steam in approximately 5 minutes with as little as 3 litres of water. No need for excessive amounts of water, expensive chemicals or the use of a gas flame. For more information, visit

  • Equipments and Bottling Line Sanitisation

Production equipment can be cleaned and thermally sanitised with +100°C dry steam in high temperature and high pressure to completely dislodge and destruct stubborn bacteria and dusts. For more information about bottling line cleaning with Duplex's industrial steam cleaners, visit
