Mobile frost fans

tow & blow

Vinescapes work with Mobile Frost Fan manufacturers to provide reliable products that protect vineyards from radiation frosts.

Every radiation frost event is different, different atmospheric conditions, different inversion layer strengths, different temperatures, different length of sub-zero temperatures, different soil moisture levels, and different vine development stages. In general though, with a decent inversion, a Mobile Frost Fan on flat land can protect on average:

4 hectares of land down to -3°C
3 hectares of land down to -4°C
1 hectares of land down to -5°C

Selected Inversion Sinks

Selected Inverted Sink

Vinescapes work with Ex-Frost providing Selected Inverted Sink (SIS) frost fans.

SIS extract cold air vertically drawing cold air into the bottom thrusting it upwards (80m) allowing warmer air to lower preventing frost damage in the vines.

This technology is used across the globe and many vineyards in England have already moved to this automated, relatively quiet and environmentally friendly technology.

The SIS frost unit is fully portable and has an effective coverage of Three (3) hectares in undulating topography. Designed as a stand-alone unit that starts & stops based on temperature setpoints. SIS Frost Unit is a light weight rigid steel construction (350kg) in a powder coat finish with a smooth rolled internal surface to allow free air flow.

Thermovine

thermovine

Vinescapes have worked with industry renowned thermodynamic engineers to develop a cutting edge hydronic heating system that delivers heat direct to the bud zone in your vineyard.

The system is housed in discreet box trailers that are easy to move in and out of your vineyard and connect to the pipe array that delivers heat to the vines protecting them in frost conditions.

Thermovine can also be used to deliver heat into the vineyard at key development stages, such as flowering and fruit set.
