Wikeeps cartridges are fully compatible with Coravin system Both the cartridge format and the thread are the same. However, Coravin uses a plastic end cap as a sealing system which you must retrieve from the original cartridge. Once this black adapter is recovered and screwed onto the Wikeeps cartridge, the operation is identical.

Coravin compatible Wikeeps cartridges use 21ml gas canisters. This is an industry standard also used by its sister company Winaro. Coravin cartridges are only special because of a plastic adapter that is screwed onto the cartridge.
In this way, wikeeps Coravin cartridge compatibility is achieved.
Take a black adapter from a Coravin capsule and screw it onto the Wikeeps cartridge before each use.
The gas contained in Coravin cartridges is Argon, a natural neutral and inert gas.
Wikeeps®, the French patent for wine service and preservation, uses this same gas to preserve its bottles.
The difference is that Wikeeps® has developed a unique formula of 80% Argon and 20% CO2 supplied by its partner Linde, world leader in oenological gases.
This gas is reported to be less astringent for your wine than 100% Argon or 100% Nitrogen and brings a freshness on the dissolved CO2 naturally present in the wine.
Used in the vats of the greatest châteaux, the gases contained in the Wikeeps® cartridges will ensure the quality of preservation required by the finest bottles.
Take your old capsule
1 – Unscrew the adpater

Before throwing away a cartridge, it is recommended to completely empty it by pressing the handle before removing it from the tank, this is without danger. The gases come from the atmosphere, so there are no ecological and health risks.
