10 FAVORITE PRODUCTS by Wine Business Monthy - Names Pasco Poly™ SR Pump-under™ Fermentor a top favorite at UWGS 2007:  Unified Wine & Grape Symposium by Curtis Phillips
HIGHLIGHTS:  "Pasco Poly introduced the St. Regulus Fermentor at this years UWGS. The St. Regulus is a submerged cap fermentor that has the additional feature of actively circulating the fermenting wine through the cap to increase extraction, evenly distributing fermentable sugars and keeping the cap from overheating during fermentation. The winemaker can adjust most of the fermentor parameters such as depth of the cap, amount of circulation and temperature. WHATS COOL: This fermentor automates submerged-cap fermentations." http://www.winebusiness.com/wbm/?go=getArticle&dataId=46909

April 2009 Wines & Vines:  Tanks for small lots: boutiques, custom crushers choose stainless, stackable vessels. by Peter Franson - HIGHLIGHTS: "Many winemakers also are using plastic tanks for fermentation and/or shipment. Dave Rule says 'Pasco Poly tanks are not oxygen permeable'. Advantages of the smaller tanks include sophisticated options like cooling jackets, easy portability by forkiifts, and their ability to be stacked, saving valuable winery floor space. Pasco Poly in Weiser, Idaho, offers the new St. Regulus Pump-Under™ red wine fermenter in 1- to 7-ton models. The juice is pumped from the top after it has passed upward through the submerged, temperature-controlled cap, and then returned to the bottom of the tank for recirculation. The temperature control and degree of circulation are all automated, and there is no manual punching down or pumping over." http://www.allbusiness.com/food-beverage/beverage-industry-beverage-manufacturing/12313678-1.html
