There is an all stainless steel model for 19,000 Euros.
For 180P2-D: optional hydraulic lifting/lowering device 1420 Euros extra.
The optional hydraulic lifting/lowering device is used to lift up the bed while you are starting to pack the first layers.
If you are using a WALC, opening the dosing device on the Mill allows the pommace to fall down on to the bed.
If the apples are very juicy the juice will spray everywhere when it falls from a height.
With the hydraulic lift/lower device you lift up the bed very close to the outlet of the Mill, to prevent the spraying.
Some advice on using Voran Pack presses:
If a lot of apple 'puree' gets squeezed through the press-cloths, then make thinner layers of pommace for each rack and make more racks, to fill the press as high as possible, or put a piece of wood above to make more pressure. If you need to work in that way every pressing then you should buy 3 or 4 extra racks and press-cloths.
