The Toad

The TOAD is a US patented fluid distribution device designed to radially distribute liquids evenly over a tank’s interior. Used in wine fermentation as a pump over irrigator, the TOAD has proven to provide more consistent coverage over wine “must” resulting in better extraction of phenolic, odor and flavor compounds than any other device on the world market. The TOAD will not ‘bruise’, will not clog, and its sanitary, durable 304 stainless steel construction insures longevity and uninterrupted CIP service over the lifetime of the product. Lightweight design makes it suitable for portable use as well.

Our Customers Say
"We have struggled with getting good color from our reds despite a host of pump-over implements. This year we combined delestage with The TOAD and got GREAT COLOR and silky mouthfeel from all our reds. My wife is a graduate of TCU and their mascot is the Horned Toad. Now, we love two TOADS!"
