Destoner / Fruit Puree

Area of Application

The Kreuzmayr destoner and passing machine is used for quick and easy destoning and passing of various types of fruit. Stone fruit such as cherries, plums, apricots, peaches and mangoes are easily processed. It can also be used to process avocados, apples, pears, quinces and all types of berries (such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, etc.).
The removal of the stone is necessary for a distilling process. There are different sieve perforations of 0.8 / 1.5 / 3 / 5 / 12 / 15 / 20 and 25 mm available for various applications.


  • The machine is entirely made of stainless steel

The fruit is filled into the feeding funnel manually, or with a Kreuzmayr washing elevator (KWE 1000 or 3000). Via the driven intake screw or the two metered addition screws (KEP 1500) the fruit is continuously conveyed into the rotor chamber. The specially aligned rotor blades hurl the fruit against the internal wall of the sieve, while an ideal conversation of the cores is guaranteed. The flesh of the fruit is pressed against the holes of the sieve. The core remains in the rotor chamber and is tangentially discharged at the rear end wall of the machine, after all fruit flesh has been thoroughly removed.
