Introducing the Citrus Pressing / Orange Juice Line
The Kreuzmayr citrus/tropical pressing line can be used for oranges, pineapple, lemons, limes, kiwi and even papaya without changing parts. The output is about 2 tonnes/hour and includes everything you need from start to finish.
The bin dumper loads the fruit onto a sorting conveyor, where damaged and rotten fruit is sorted out.
It is then conveyed to a brush cleaner for a first brush and rinse.
After a bath it is conveyed up the elevator to the rasping machine, where the peels are removed so it’s oils won’t affect the taste of the orange juice.
After the rasping of the fruit, it is cleaned again on a brush cleaning station and sprayed with water.
From the brush cleaner, the fruit is sent to the fruit press. The discharge is seen here coming from the press. This has a 2000 kg/h throughput.
Did we mention any size of fruit works without changing parts?
The raw juice from the press is pumped through the juice finisher. The pulp is discharged out the back, while the juice collects in a pan below.
The Orange juice is now bottled and capped automatically. Upon request it can be pasteurized and hot filled.
