Commercial juice producers have essentially two main options available when choosing equipment:
Hydraulic Pressing – Using a hydraulic press with racks and cloths. The more traditional way of pressing, equipment is generally less expensive, but the manual nature of pressing in this way does mean that more labour is required and throughput is limited.
Belt Pressing – A more modern, automated pressing method. Belt presses allow large quantities of fruit to be pressed with minimal labour, but the equipment costs are more expensive.
Before pressing, apples need to be crushed to a fine pulp. Effectively crushing can have as much effect on juice yields as the power of the press. The model of press will determine which mill is compatible.
To prevent the juice from fermenting it must be pasteurised, which involves heating the juice to a carefully controlled temperature for a specific time. Pasteurisation can be achieved by one of the following options:
Vigo manufactures and supplies both in-bottle pasteurisation and flash pasteurisers for pasteurising apple juice.
