Elevator / Washer / Grinder

Area of Application

Vegetables or fruit (e.g. apples, pears, quinces, carrots etc.) are washed and elevated in a Kreuzmayr Elevator / Washer / Grinder machine KWEM 1000, 2000, 3000 or 5500, and ground with the directly attached grinding mill. The mash produced in this process is directly applied to the belt press. An automatic monitoring process prevents an excessive filling of the belt press. Stone fruit such as cherries, plums, apricots or peaches must have their stones removed before pressing. This is done in a Kreuzmayr pitting machine (KEP 650/1000/1500) in order to be able to produce clear juice without stone particles.
