Hydraulic presses

Vigo supplies the Voran range of robust, heavy duty hydraulic presses for commercial apple juice and cider production.

Also known as rack and cloth presses, hydraulic presses are a simple and relatively inexpensive way of producing high yields of juice. Apple pulp is wrapped in cloths, sandwiched between slatted wooden boards and stacked to form a 'cheese', which is pressed. Hydraulic presses are available as single bed, twin bed, or swivel bed. Twin and swivel beds allow a cheese to be built while another is being pressed, doubling the rate of production.

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

  • Ability to press from 150 to 1000kg per hour, depending on the model used
  • High juice yields of up to 75% depending on fruit variety & fruit quality - the thin layers of pulp allow juice to flow laterally to give a good yield
  • Relatively inexpensive - ideal for start ups or small scale artisan producers
  • Suitable for cider and juice makers wishing to press between 500kg and 6 tonnes per day
  • High quality, robust equipment - there are many Voran presses over 20 years old which are still giving good service today
  • Supplied complete with racks and cloths
  • Tested prior to despatch by Vigo engineers
  • Comprehensive 2 year parts and labour warranty, backed up by Vigo engineers
