Classic frame model of a cross-beam fruit press for home use.
Due to its small weight and dimensions, the press is easy to use and carry.
1 bucket of crushed apples is placed in the basket. In one cycle of operation (loading crushed fruit, squeezing juice, unloading) 5-7 liters of juice can be produced.
For crushing fruit in terms of productivity, an electric fruit crusher ESE-018 is enough. With this kit, more than 50 liters of juice per hour can be squeezed, if several people work at the same time, for example, the whole family. The first person picks and washes the fruit, the second crushes the apples, and the third person presses the juice. This fruit press can also be used for pressing juice from pears, grapes, other berries, other fruits and vegetables.
If you have larger apples growing in your garden (more than 85 mm in diameter), you can skip cutting the apples before crushing by choosing a larger model of the crusher, for example, ESE-055 (it’s feeding hole diameter is 125 mm).
The working screw has a trapezoidal thread 24x5 The thread length in the frame is 70 mm. Such a pair of screw and nut holds the load well and will serve you for a very long time. A bronze bushing and thrust bearing significantly reduce friction during rotation of the screw, reduce wear of working surfaces and ease the fruit pressing process itself.
Stainless steel basket, piston and drain pan
All parts of the press in contact with juice, as well as fasteners and the screw handle are made of food grade stainless steel AISI 304. Juice collection drain pan – thickness 1,5 mm; basket – thickness 1,5 mm; piston – thickness 8 mm.
Powder coating of the frame creates a strong and durable protective coating. There are rubber feet on the base of the press for easy carrying and protection of the frame coating. The legs of the fruit press have holes for fixing the press on a stationary base. There are rubber grips on the ends of the screw for comfortable work.
For the convenience of working with the press, a silicone tube can be put on the tube of the drain pan, the other end of which can be placed in the juice container. For this press, a 20x26 mm tube is suitable.
Everything you need to get started is already included in the set
The press set includes: metal frame with wooden platform, trapezoidal screw, thrust bearing, juice collection drain pan, basket, piston with bronze bushing, filtration bag (100% polyester), user guide.
Choosing a juice filtration bag
To obtain pure juice with a minimum pulp content, you need to use bags with a fine mesh: 100% polyester (lavsan) or 100% linen. Such a bag is suitable for squeezing juice from apples, pears, pineapple, ginger, rhubarb, grapes and other juicy hard fruits, berries or vegetables that contain large fibers. Berries and fruits with fine fibers will clog the filtration bag (e.g. black currant, plum, peach, etc.).
Linen fabric is very strong, one of the few fabrics that is stronger when wet rather than when dry. Linen bags are a little bit more expensive, but more environmentally friendly, since when replacing the bag, plastic does not get into nature. Linen is a natural fiber that is completely biodegradable.
If you would like to have juice with pulp, then you need to use a bag with a coarse mesh (100% polypropylene). Such a bag is suitable for pressing juice from plums, apricots, peaches, red currants, black currants and other berries and fruits. A coarse mesh bag can also be used for apples, pears and grapes, but the juice will be less clear in this case.
Recommendation: It is always good to have one spare bag so that the juice making process does not stop due to a torn filtration bag.
