Coravin capsules are particular just because of the cap/ adaptor they have on their top on the threaded part. Else they comply with a regular 21ml industry standard or 3.5 inches. A lot of our professionnal clients from Châteaux and Winecellars are using meantime CORAVIN and our WIKEEPS devices.
They informed us that Coravin capsules were identical to Wikeeps capsule, though threaded with a black plastic adaptor. Therefore, once removed and poped on Wikeeps , our capsules are working perfectly with both wine preservation systems and that’s what is making Wikeeps capsules compatible with Coravin capsules.
Coravin capsules are filled in with pure Argon, a natural, neutral and inert gas.
Wikeeps®, the French patent for Wine dispensing, aeration and preservation, developed a solution using also pure Argon but adding a 20% CO2 in its formula (due to natural presence of CO2 into wine). Benefits being the wine keeps fresher then with a 100% Argon gas.
The gas is manufactured by its partner Linde, worldwide leader for oenological gas.
The added CO2 create a less astringent protection than a pure 100% Argon or a 100% Nitrogen and gives the wine a fresh touch in case of decarbonization due to the gas effect.
Our cartridges are filled in at 20,5MPa with 6,5g of nominal gas weight. Used to inert wine within the greatest chateaux, this gas mix from Wikeeps will ensure the best conservation quality for your open bottles.
