- Disgorging: manual removal of the crown cap and evacuation of the frozen neck-plug (the neck of the bottle has to be frozen previously).

- Dosing of the 'liqueur d'expédition': the machine has a small stainless steel tank for holding/dosing the 'liqueur d'expédition'; the bottle lays on a 60° inclined base-plate. The support is designed for standard 75 cl bottles, but it is adaptable for 150 cl bottles with a simple change-over. It has a fitting for the compressed air and pressure gauge. There is a three-way valve, manually operated, for the dosing of the 'liqueur d'expédition' into the bottle. The valve sucks the 'liqueur' from the storage tank and transfers it to the filling nozzle.

From March 2018 a new model has been introduced with automatic dosing of the 'liqueur d'expédition'; "a three-way valve with an automated system to perform the operation of inserting, loading and unloading of the liqueur in the bottle in a completely automatic way.". The price of this model is 6150 Euros.

- Topping up: after the dosing operation, a small quantity of the wine is added, to achieve the correct level inside the bottle. A support base-plate, holding a bottle with wine in an upside-down position, is used to supply the wine needed for the topping (wine levelling). A manually operated valve with a lever starts the topping operation.

Fully Automatic Monobloc for de-capping, disgorging, dosing and topping up, at a consistent output (depending on the temperature of the wine).

                Barida Poker 400: 400 bottles/hour, 33,000 Euros

  or the Barida Poker 700: 700 bottles/hour, 46,900 Euros

Designed to be installed in line for fully automatic operation.
Using a rotary star-wheel system. Speed control by inverter. Movement is intermittent by a maltese cross system.
The bottles are transported from the conveyor belt by the star-wheel and positioned in the neck gripper.
The gripper is integral with the carousel but can rotate freely on its transverse axis.

The single rotary turret performs all the operations of de-capping, disgorging, dosing and topping up, during one rotation. During the rotation, it upturns the bottle by around 65° and then it removes the crown cap. The bottle without the cap remains slanted and is closed in order to limit the quantity of wine coming out. Following the dosing, the topping up is made when the bottle is again in a vertical position.

On the disgorging unit there is a detector for the possible presence of a cap.
Adjustment of disgorging, dosing and topping up levels is simple.

The ejection of caps and sediment is through a stainless steel tube into a stainless steel tray inside the machine. The tray is easily removed for emptying/cleaning.
The bottle is then transported by star-wheel back to the conveyor belt.

Base-frame made of heavy steel supports, totally covered by AISI 304 stainless steel plates.
All components which may get in contact with the product or with water are made in stainless steel.
