With the Titan Barrel we aim to eliminate many of the drawbacks of traditional wood barrels. Of these, the lifecycle of the barrel is of primary concern. With a stainless steel shell, a Titan Barrel can be expected to last 30 years or longer; Only the heads and staves need to be replaced at fraction of the price of a new barrel.
American Oak: Pennsylvania, Missouri, Ohio, Minnesota
French Oak: Heads - Région Centre France, Staves - Vosges, Centre France, Nevers
For Titan Wine Barrels, all of our oak is seasoned for a minimum of 24 months
For Titan Spirits Barrels, our American Oak is seasoned for 12 to 36 months
depending on customer requirements.
Each and every component of the Titan Barrel has a unique lot number, and each complete barrel has a unique serial number. This allows us to pinpoint any issues in the manufacturing process.
Each barrel is filled with five gallons of filtered water and pressure tested at 10 psi to verify that there are no leaks.
Yes, the Titan Barrel has almost identical dimensions to its traditional counterpart.
The heads are cut with our patented profile so that part of the head fits inside the shell. This creates a cork like effect as the first seal. For redundancy, we use a food grade O-ring which creates a seal between the head and the flange.
The only maintenance required is standard barrel cleaning procedure after it has been emptied.
To maintain the moisture of the heads, you can either keep them wrapped in plastic or fill the barrel with five gallons of hot water and soak each head for 24 hours.
In 30 gallon barrels and larger, the shell is 3mm stainless and the flanges and the flat rings are 6mm stainless each.
In 5 and 10 gallon Barrels, the shell is 2mm stainless and the flanges and the flat rings are 4mm stainless each.
Currently the Titan Barrel can be used for whiskey production. We are in the process of working with the TTB for bourbon approval.
There is no minimum. You may order one or more barrels of any size.
The internal staves are held in place with 316L (medical grade) spring stainless steel wire. The wire sits between the wood staves and the shell. We do this for the wine application so that during barrel stirring the sediment does not get stuck behind the staves.
