      Throughput up to 700 kilos/hour, nominally.
      The belt is 500 mm wide x 6500 mm long; 300 mm
      working width.

Voran quote 700 kilos/hour for the EBP500, but on fresh apples it can work at more than 900 kilos/hour.
The advantage over a large pack press is in the amount of physical work involved.
The EBP650 is very much faster but a lot more expensive:-

Optional extras:-

The cleaning unit installed on these Voran single belt presses sprays high pressure water on to the belt. This unit uses a lot of electrical power and water, and it is also very noisy.
It is recommended to have a special cleaning brush installed (1060 Euros extra on the EBP500, 1230 Euros extra on the EBP650, 1850 Euros extra on the EBP1200). With the cleaning brush operating it is possible to switch off the high-pressure-washer.
If the apples are very old it is sometimes very helpful to have both cleaning systems running all the time.

It is also recommended to buy:-
1 or 2 spare special bearings, 87 Euros each;
a bearing will be needed sooner or later, so its good to have a spare.
A belt regulation valve, 210 Euros; the belt regulation valves now installed are much better than those used some years ago.
The belt regulation valve commands the roller forward and backwards to keep the belt running in the centre of the press.

           automatically switches off when there is no juice), 1990 Euros.

          for EBP650: 100 litres, complete unit with 1 mm screen filter and Typ B rubber-impeller pump
          (3600 litres/hour, 0.55 kW 380 volts, outlet thread 1" bsp male,
           automatically switches off when there is no juice), 2390 Euros.

       Spare neoprene-rubber impeller: 188.00 Euros. Spare 1 mm screen 189 Euros.

Voran Eckrohrsieb - Pipe screen combination DN25: 1588 Euros

for coarse filtration of juice with 2 parallel stainless steel slotted screens,
including connections as in photo below, and with 0.25 mm 'sieve':-

  643 mm long x 410 mm wide, 14.5 kilos.

Rohrdruckmittler DN25: 0 6 bar (Manometer), 350 Euros

The manometer is useful but not essential, it is used to see the pressure in the filter. Once the filter is full the pressure will increase and you know to open up the filter and clean it. It is important that the filter is cleaned from time to time. Experience is that the 0.25 mm sieve has to be cleaned after 2 to 3 hours.

Spaltrohr: 0.25 mm is the standard 'sieve' fineness, also available are 0.10 mm and 1.50 mm, 187 Euros each.
