100PS & 180PS hydraulic swivel bed presses are manufactured by Voran, internationally renowned Voran, suppliers of fruit processing equipment since 1925.

Hydraulic bed presses are a simple and relatively inexpensive way of pressing and producing high yields of juice. Apple pulp (milled apples) is manually wrapped in cloths, sandwiched between slatted wooden boards and stacked to form a ‘cheese’, which is pressed by the hydraulic ram of the press.

The PS presses not only allow a cheese to be built while another is being pressed, the empty press bed can be swivelled directly under the discharge chute of the Voran wash mill & elevators for fast and efficient pulp delivery and enabling 'cheese' building in the same place [with the P2 models you alternative between building a cheese on the right hand bed or the left hand bed, depending on which bed is being pressed].

  • Twin press beds - beds mounted on a swivelling chassis as explained above
  • Twin beds allow a cheese to be built while another is being pressed
  • Can press up to 600 kg (100PS) or 1000 kg (180PS) of pulp per hour
  • Designed for use with the WA LC wash mill & elevator, to save labour shovelling pulp, but can be used with the RM 2.2 mill
  • The 180PS is available with press beds which can be lifted and lowered for optimal working height when discharging pulp from the wash mill and assembling cheeses (see image) - surcharge applies
  • Comprehensive 2 year warranty, backed up by Vigo engineers

Voran are the market leaders in fruit juice processing equipment. The Voran range of hydraulic presses from Vigo offer you the following features:

  • High juice yields - up to 75%, depending on fruit variety and quality – the thin layers of pulp allow juice to flow laterally for a good yield
  • Fast juice run-off through racks with multiple juice channels
  • Relatively inexpensive – ideal for start ups or small scale artisan producers
  • 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
  • Pressure regulated automatically
  • Simple operation and easy to clean
  • Tested prior to despatch by Vigo engineers
  • Comprehensive 2 year warranty, backed up by Vigo engineers

Please note, with this more traditional method of pressing (also known as rack & cloth pressing or pack 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. If you require a more automated pressing system, see the Voran belt presses and associated wash mills / elevators and call us on 01404 892100.
