WALC40 wash mills with elevator are manufactured by internationally renowned Voran, suppliers of fruit processing equipment since 1925. These washing and milling units greatly free up time spent shovelling pomace into the hydraulic bed apple press, and reduce waste – reducing costs and allowing greater throughput. When used with the appropriate belt press, they wash fruit and deliver it milled directly to the belt press, automating the milling and pressing process. The WA/LC40 has the following features:

  • Capacity of up to 3000 kg per hour
  • Suitable for milling apples and pears (some other fruits and vegetables can be processed - please contact us to discuss)
  • Fruit elevated to mill from water bath by auger
  • Fruit receives a spray of water during elevation
  • Variable speed
  • Stainless steel construction throughout
  • Versions available for the Voran hydraulic swivel (PS) bed presses and the Voran EBP500/580/650 belt presses
  • Single or 3 phase versions available

Please call us on 01404 892100 to discuss your milling requirements.

  • Different graters (perforated screens) are available depending on the degree of milling required
  • Versions available for the Voran hydraulic swivel (PS) bed presses and the Voran EBP500/580/650 belt presses

  • Fruit is fed into a washing bath and is elevated into the mill, receiving a spray of water while being elevated
  • The fruit is pulverised by a heavy rotor and pulp is discharged through a perforated screen - for different types of fruit, screens can be changed for versions with different sized perforations to optimise the consistency of the pulp for pressing, which can allow you to get optimum juice yields.
  • The supply of apples to the mill is automatically regulated by a pressure sensor either on the pomace hopper of the mill or at the press inlet
