Belt presses

Vigo supplies the Voran range of robust, heavy duty belt presses for commercial apple juice and cider production. Automatic belt presses offer a way of pressing high volumes of fruit pulp with minimal labour costs. Apple pulp is fed continuously onto a porous belt and pressed against a series of steel rollers which extract the juice. Yields are comparable and, in some cases, higher than those achieved by hydraulic presses. Using a belt press gives a short pressing time and leads to minimal air contact. The quality of the juice is usually very high as a result with minimal solid content.

The Voran range of belt presses from Vigo offer you the following features:

  • Ability to press from 300 to 6000kg per hour, depending on the model used
  • Continuous, automatic operation where operated with a washer, elevator mill system
  • Minimal supervision required - reducing labour costs
  • High juice yields of up to 80% depending on model, fruit variety & fruit quality
  • Flexibility to press small batches of fruit - useful if pressing single varieties or contract pressing for smaller customers
  • Full stainless steel construction
  • Automatic belt cleaning
  • Level controls available to automatically regulate pumping of juice to holding tanks
  • Simple operation and cleaning
  • Set-up, commissioning and training carried out by experienced Vigo engineers
  • Comprehensive 2 year parts and labour warranty, backed up by Vigo engineers
