Floating “skins” are made to fit the cross section of a particular tank. They are floated on top of the wine to reduce absorption of oxygen from the tank headspace when the tank is partially filled. They should be used in conjunction with gassing the headspace with an inert gas such as nitrogen or argon. It is recommended that tanks be at least two thirds full when using skins to create a variable capacity tank. Partially filled tanks should be expected to use up sulfur at a more rapid rate than full units.
The skins are made by RF sealing a urethane membrane around a foam core. The valve shown is used to deflate the skin when used in high CO2 environments. The eyelets are for attaching a recovery cord when used in a deep tank.
The skins are significantly easier to deploy and recover through the wide mouth Dexter series tanks than the smaller opening in the ECO series tanks.
If a buoyant oak adjunct product is in use with a part fill it will be necessary to attach a sinker to the oak or it will prevent effective use of the skin.
