Voran SA400 wash mill & elevator

SA washmills and elevators are manufactured by internationally renowned Voran, suppliers of fruit processing equipment since 1925. 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 SA400 has the following features:

  • Capacity of up to 8000 kg per hour
  • Suitable for milling apples and pears (some other fruits and vegetables can be processed - please contact us to discuss)
  • Sorting table and water bath
  • Fruit elevated by flighted conveyor belt, receiving a spray of water during elevation
  • Mounted on wheels for ease of movement
  • Stainless steel construction throughout
  • 3 phase
  • Suitable for use with the Voran EBP650/1200, and ZBP belt presses

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


  • Different graters (perforated screens) are available depending on the degree of milling required
  • Suitable for use with the Voran EBP650/1200, and ZBP 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
