The technology used by TRANSTHERM puts forward the know-how of the professionals to bring together the five criteria required for optimal wine preservation: reinforced insulation, automatic temperature control, adapted humidity, natural ventilation and an absence of vibration.
Our wine cabinets also combine modularity and aesthetics to offer you optimal ergonomics.
Reinforced Insulation : The walls of our cabinets are made of three successive thermal barriers. The internal walls are made of strong and odourless insulating shock resistant polystyrene, which absorbs any vibrations from the compressor. The robust and aesthetically decorative exterior walls are reinforced at the corners by insulating sections. The 4.5cm thick high density expanded foam which is injected, ensures optimal insulation. TRANSTHERM cabinets thus have a rigidity adapted to wine bottle storage and thermal stability worthy of the best natural cellars.
Automatic Temperature Control : When the ambient temperature rises above the ideal wine conservation temperature, a cold circuit, driven by a very slow cycle compressor mounted on silent-blocks, come into action. The cold circuit coil, made of aluminium, is within the aluminium back wall of the cabinet, for a better temperature distribution. In the case of a drop of temperature, an electrical resistance, which is also within the back wall, will come into action and automatically increase the temperature.
Adapted Humidity : Bottle corks need specific hygrometric conditions in order not to dry out. The thermal pump (a TRANSTHERM exclusivity) allows hot humid air to be obtained automatically. Natural condensation on the back wall records a hygrometric value between 55% - 80%.
Natural Ventilation : In order to avoid the mould phenomenon, which would generate bad odour and risk deteriorating the corks, the TRANSTHERM® cabinets have natural permanent ventilation, based on the same principal as the thermal pump.
Absense of Vibrations : Choosing slow and balanced compressors, as well as disassociating them from the cabinet's body, allows the elimination of all residual vibrations.
Wine Cabinets : The technical specificities used endow TRANSTHERM wine cabinets with perfect wine preservation conditions, following the example of natural cellars. Your wine will improve for your optimum pleasure. The quality of the material, the display ergonomics and the contemporary design make TRANSTHERM wine cabinets the ideal solution for safeguarding your precious collection.
Thermal Pump : The thermal pump process, (a TRANSTHERM exclusivity), by heating the condensed water, allows the introduction of humid air within the cabinet and considerably increases the hygrometry value between 55% - 80%. This principle gives the cabinet natural ventilation and constant air circulation.
Thermal Regulation : TRANSTHERM® cabinets are equipped with a temperature regulation system using liquid bulb thermostats, specifically designed for this purpose. The sensitivity and precision of these thermostats operates either the cold or hot circuit at the right moment, and as quickly as possible, in order to maintain, with an external temperature between 0 - 35°C (32 - 86°F), a maximum temperature variation of 1.5°C inside the wine cabinet. All TRANSTHERM cabinets are equipped with a temperature setting and control panel, featuring a liquid crystal temperature display.
