Winegrowers Supplies   -  Grape presses - horizontal - 500 litres or larger capacity

   When deciding on the size of press: remember it needs to be at least a quarter full in order to work properly. For 'whole bunch pressing' a much larger press is needed.

New: NIKO pneumatic presses, fully automatic with manual override, excellent value:-

The VPe economy series has a simple but robust structure, which makes the presses easy to use and allows fast and thorough cleaning afterwards:-

    VP5e: 500 litres, 10,804 Euros.

    VP8e: 800 litres, 12,637 Euros.

    VP11e: 1100 litres, 14,828 Euros.

    VP15e: 1500 litres, 17,949 Euros.

    VP21e: 2100 litres, 20,629 Euros.

From 2018 these eco-models have just an opening upper side because the upper side is now very much larger and the lower side is very much smaller.

   380 Volt 3-phase is standard, single phase 230 Volt (243 Euros extra) is an option on VP5e, VP8e and VP11e.

  • Special design for easy cleaning under the sliding doors.
  • Large collection tray on pivoting wheels with a sieve on the outlet.
  • Declaration of conformity CE, PED documentation.
  • There are many options:-

  • A perforated cylinder is standard but an alternative (for Sparkling Wine) is a non-perforated cylinder with channels inside the cylinder and a perforated door, this is the same price as the standard models.

  • axial loading with ball-valves DN65, DN80, DN100 or DN120.
