Title: METHOD AND PLANT FOR THE EXTRACTION OF FLAVOURS
Abstract:
A plant (10) intended for the extraction of flavours for use in winemaking and/or food in general, comprising a tank (11) containing a liquid to be treated originating from an inlet pipe (19), wherein said tank (11) is connected by pipes (13, 14, 19, 21) to at least one extraction cylinder (12) intended to contain a flavour- imparting wood material in the form of chips or staves, and wherein there is at least one pump (18) along the pipe (14) which connects said tank (11) to said extraction cylinder (12) and at least one automatic valve (15) along the pipe which connects said extraction cylinder (12) to said tank (11), wherein said pump (18) and said automatic valve (15) interact so as to increase the pressure of the liquid to be imparted flavour to inside the extraction cylinder (12). Said automatic valve (15) is subject to opening and closing commands at time intervals to perform pressure pulses during the operation of said pump (18).
