The de-juicer separates any peel or pips from the wine-must during racking off, with an hourly production flow in the region of 800 hl.
The must enters a perforated cylinder which retains the solid parts and allows the must to filter through to the collector below so it can then be sent to its destination. The solids are extracted by an impeller which rotates in the opposite direction inside the perforated cylinder and are then sent out. This operation runs continuously and does not require stopping in order to remove either the filtered wine or the solid parts discarded. The perforated cylinder is kept clean by special rubber strips that rub up against the cylinder.
Constructed entirely in Aisi 304 stainless steel and mounted on wheels, two of which are steering, the machine top casings can be opened in two halves for cleaning and maintenance.
The equipment has a 100 mm diameter clamp connector for must infeed and a 120 mm diameter outfeed connection
