Winegrowers Supplies   -  Horizontal pneumatic presses - for grapes or apples etc - 450 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.

   EM horizontal pneumatic presses, high quality and exceptional value.

With an elastic central membrane made of non-toxic food-grade elastic rubber, inflated by air, enabling complete pressing at up to 1 bar pressure in only 1 hour for grapes (1 hours for apples).
A patented system, working at much lower pressure than other presses, thus increasing the quality of the juice/must.

In stainless steel AISI304, on wheels, with partially perforated cylinder.
Door for filling and emptying, located centrally.
Juice/must collecting tray in stainless steel, with rapid hookup and releasing, DN40 male thread on outlet; to connect a 40 mm or 32 mm internal diameter hose.
Rapid attaching for compressed air, from an external compressor.
Manometer for observing the pressing pressure. Safety valve set at 1.5 bar.
Valves for controlling the pressurising and depressurising of the rubber membrane.

    450 litres: with manual rotation of the cylinder for crumbling, 5,800 Euros
      or a motorised version to rotate the cylinder for crumbling, 8,400 Euros.


Dimensions: 1700 x 850 x 1350/1387 mm high. Weighs about 220 Kilos.
Holds up to 400 kilos of whole bunches, 900 kilos of de-stemmed grapes or 1200 kilos of fermented (red) grapes,
or up to 375 kilos of milled apples. For apples it's important that a chopping mill is used, to produce pieces of 3 to 8 mm, rather than a Voran scraper mill that produces a paste.

Options:-
Fully perforated cylinder, 400 Euros. This is essential for pressing milled apples (pommace).
- DN80 male thread welded on door of press, to connect an 80 mm hose from an elliptical rotor pump, for pumping in, 90 Euros.
Air compressor, 50 litres 8 bar, 2 HP, 220 Volts, 420 Euros.
PLC with integrated program to control automatically all the phases of pressing, crumbling etc (only for the motorized version), 1575 Euros.

    1000 litres: with 220 volts, 2 kWatt, motorised rotation of the cage for crumbling, 10,500 Euros


Dimensions: 2000 x 1000 x 1500 mm high. Weight approx 350 Kilos.
Holds up to 800 kilos of whole bunches, 1800 kilos of de-stemmed grapes or 2500 kilos of fermented (red) grapes, or up to 850 kilos of milled apples.

Options:-
Fully perforated cylinder, 800 Euros. This is essential for pressing milled apples (pommace).
- DN80 male thread welded on door of press, to connect an 80 mm hose from an elliptical rotor pump, for pumping in, 90 Euros.
Air compressor, 50 litres 8 bar, 2.5 HP, 220 Volts, 525 Euros.
PLC with integrated program to control automatically all the phases of pressing, crumbling etc, 1575 Euros.

Also, larger DHEA models, all with a central membrane made of non-toxic food-grade elastic rubber, with a color touch screen PLC:-


Special features:-

Elastic central membrane made of non-toxic alimentary gum, so the entire circumference of the press cylinder as dripping surface, reducing the pressing times to a minimum. Patented.
- Stainless steel draining elements, around 360 inside the cylinder, not only in a semicircle, with trapezoid section to increase the drainage capacity; detachable for easy cleaning.
Automatic washing of the inside of the draining elements. Patented.

Variable cylinder positioning during the processing phases, to optimise the performance throughout the working cycle, reducing the pressing times. Patented.
Loading and pressing with the cylinder tilted towards the must collecting tank, to speed up the must exit and to optimize the loading, without the need for double or triple doors.
Crumbling phases with the cylinder horizontal, to give a perfect ring distribution of the mash, so as afterwards to press evenly on the whole cylinder circumference.

Emptying with the press tilted towards the unloading door, so as to obtain a fast and complete removal without needing double or triple doors or helical elements inside the cylinder.
Pneumatic-opening loading and unloading door, placed laterally, not centrally, on the cylinder.
Must collecting tank with quick fastening and unfastening, automatic level detection predisposed for the must pump, and the possibility to choose the side to connect the pump.

Internal connection of the several draining elements, to allow the extraction of the must in all the positions of the press during the automatic pressing cycle.
Dripping elements, each equipped with a DIN connection for the must exit, to enable maceration inside the cylinder if required.
Quick connection for Inert gas injection, with possibility to insert the gas inside the reservoir before, during or after the loading phase, also with a rotating press.

Washing nozzle to attach a hydro-washer, to wash the internal surfaces of the draining elements.
Large diameter stainless steel ball-valve for the axial loading.
Built-in air compressor, self-breaking gear motor, pinion, crown wheel, and chain for the cylinder rotation.
Programming panel is easy and intuitive to use, with six pre-designed programs, and the ability to key in and change all the variables desired by the operator.

Options:-
Pressing in inert gas atmosphere and total recuperation of the gas.
Automatic separation of musts as required by the operator.
Must extraction pump integrated in the press.
Carbonic maceration with automatic extraction of the auto-pressed must.
