Hydropresses (original) -

Hydropresses, manufactured by Speidel, are widely used in smaller vineyards and apple orchards to press small batches of fruit. They give a gentle pressing, similar to that given by larger modern pneumatic wine presses. They can also be used to press lees, and a range of fruits and vegetables (including rhubarb and red currants). Please note, fruits and vegetables should be crushed/milled prior to pressing - see Application.

Hydropresses use mains pressure or pumped water to inflate the rubber bag inside the press. As the bag inflates it presses the fruit pulp against the slotted cylinder. The pressure applied and time pressing can be regulated by opening and closing the water tap.

  • Good juice yields even if partially filled
  • Stainless steel press cylinder, slotted (instead of perforated) for better yield
  • Enamelled cast aluminium alloy base & lid
  • Supplied with press bag & splash guard sack
  • Supplied with 1/2" hose connector & 75cm of clear braided hose (13mm / 1/2")

Available in 40 litre & 90 litre capacities (see specification below).

(A 180 litre hydropress on a tilting frame is also available)
