Fruit press machine - quality juice making equipment

Freshly squeezed juices from ripe fruit - a real feast for the palate and your health. When, after a beautiful summer, the approaching autumn beckons with its bountiful harvest, the hard work really begins for many garden owners. The fruit trees drop ripe fruit every day and the summer vegetables also need to be processed. In addition to jams and preserved fruits, juicing is a wonderful way to carry the sweet flavors of summer into winter. At expondo, robust fruit presses for different needs are waiting for your use.

How does a fruit press work?

A fruit press consists of a solid container for the pressed material, a sieve for straining the juice and a device for applying pressure to the ripe fruit. Thanks to the container, the fruit stays in place and can be crushed by vertical pressure. The escaping fruit juice is filtered through the sieve and drains through grooves at the bottom of the fruit press. In this way, large quantities of fruits and vegetables can be pressed gradually, as a large volume of liquid drains away while the solid fruit residues, also called pomace, remain and are pressed flat.

Pressing allows you to juice your fruit very efficiently and gently. You get a high juice yield and a dry pomace that can be processed elsewhere or disposed of in the compost.

What fruits can be pressed with a fruit presser?

With a fruit press can be juiced all kinds of fruits, but also vegetables. These include apples, oranges, pears, plums, peaches, cherries, apricots, but also bush fruit such as currants, gooseberries. Grapes are also very easy to press into delicious juice. The juicier the pressed material, the better. In addition, increase your yield with well-ripened, soft fruit. Should you also fill harder fruits such as quinces or vegetables such as carrots, we recommend chopping these foods a little beforehand. This means that you have to use less force when pressing - which is gentle on you and the components of the fruit press alike.

Fruit press made of stainless steel and wood

Traditional fruit presses made of wood and iron exude a nostalgic charm and remind of times gone by. expondo has taken the classic design and added high-quality components as well as additional functions to the classic devices. The spout at the bottom allows the juice to drain from the sturdily crafted fruit press, while you can refill fruit from the top through the wide opening of the body and apply high pressure to the fruit with little effort thanks to the spindle design.

A low-maintenance and very easy-to-clean alternative, especially for commercial use, is a fruit press made of stainless steel and iron. The material is extremely durable, scratch-resistant, and hygienic. With little pressure, you also reliably squeeze juice from all kinds of fruit with these models. Here, too, you apply force to the pressed material via a spindle. You can also install our stainless-steel juicers firmly in your work environment thanks to prefabricated mounting holes on the sturdy base plate.

Electric fruit press

Especially in the commercial sector, where a lot of fruit is processed in a short time, manual presses are often not sufficient. Here, electric fruit presses that automatically do the juicing are a good choice. The presses, which are similar in structure to traditional juicers, are equipped with hydraulics that perform the pressing down of the pressing plate with high pressure. Depending on the model, 5 tons of weight can act on the fruit here. This ensures a high working volume as well as an enormous juice yield.

Hydraulic fruit press

You can increase the juice yield by using a pressing cloth in the fruit press, among other things. Our cloths for filtering, straining and straining are made of particularly abrasion-resistant acrylic fibers. These withstand the great pressure of juicing even when wet. In addition, you can wash the press cloths and use them again and again. They are easy to clean and allow hygienic filtering of your mash.

Make your own juice with a juicer

Even those who have smaller quantities of fruit and fruit available can press their own juice. For starters, all you need is a standard blender with which you chop the fruit and vegetables. Then strain the juice through a sieve or press cloth.

For private households and smaller businesses such as bistros, cafés or juice bars, you can find compact juicers that you can conjure up delicious drinks in no time at all. A distinction is made here between centrifugal juicers and slow juicers. With both variants you reliably juice fruits, vegetables, herbs and with many models even nuts for milk alternatives. Differences can be seen in the juicing method as well as in the shelf life of the beverages.

Make your own wine with a wine press

In the first step, centrifuges chop the fruit with several sharp knives into a fine fruit pulp. This pulp is thrown against the walls of the juicer by rotation at up to 15,000 rpm. The centrifugal forces created in the process, also known as centrifugal forces, extract the juice from the fruit puree - similar to spinning in a washing machine. Centrifugal juicers are very powerful machines that easily crush even harder plant parts such as seeds and core, as well as stems and fibers. A large feed chute allows you to fill the unit with whole apples, cucumbers, or even large quantities of leafy greens. The rapid rotations of the blades create friction and thus heat in a centrifugal juicer, which can affect the shelf life of the juice. In addition, the spinning process adds oxygen to the juice. As a result, the juice oxidizes a little faster and should be consumed quickly. Due to their enormous working power and speed, these devices are suitable wherever large quantities of juice are needed quickly for immediate consumption.

Fruit press machine - pressing to the last drop

If you are looking for a high juice yield and want to squeeze even the last drop out of fruits and herbs, you are well advised to use a slow juicer, also known as a cold juicer. These devices work more slowly, but also more gently. In this process, the ripe fruits are pushed towards a sieve by means of a juicer auger, through which they are pressed. This creates much less friction and no heat, which means that the juices usually have a slightly longer shelf life.
Depending on what fruits or vegetables you fill your slow juicer with, enormous forces can act on the components of the device. So look for a robust design and the processing of high-quality materials such as stainless steel, so that they can enjoy the juicer for a long time. You can help manually by chopping the fruit to be juiced slightly before pressing. Fruit and vegetable slicers for quick and effortless chopping of food can be found at expondo, as well as blenders for appetizing serving of your drinks. Fancy cereals with your juice?
