Fruit and vegetable pressing machine

The vertical pressing machine consists of a base on which a tank is mounted.
Inside the tank, there is a sieve insert as well as a mixer powered by the drive installed in the base (through gear wheels, wedged belts and a roller).
There is a lid with an outlet and a cap with a bowl on the tank.
A control cabinet is mounted on the base. The interior of the base, where there are moving parts, is covered with tin covers.
The whole machine stands on feet. These have a thread that enables the regulation of their height.
All the parts which come into contact with the product are made of acid-resistant steel and teflon.
The base and control cabinet are made of stainless steel.

Operation

Once the pressing machine is switched on the product is placed in the feeder bowl on a cap. From there, it reaches the machine inside via a hole in the wall. Here the product comes into contact with a rotating mixer which thrusts the product, with the centrifugal force, to the sieve surface in the sieve insert. As a result of the motion between the mixer and the sieve the product is crushed. The product, crushed to a sufficient extent, reaches the tank via the sieve. From there, through the discharge pipe at the tank bottom, the product leaves the machine to a supplied container.
Hard fruit parts which have not be crushed are gotten rid of through the lid hole to a small trough with a closing flap. From there they fall into a supplied container.
