Umberleigh Area
72 Litre Rack and Cloth Press (Umberleigh)

A rack and cloth (pack) press with ratcheted screw mechanism, 6 acacia racks, 6 machine washable press cloths, metal cheese frame.

 

    • The same type of press commonly used by commercial cider mills in a more manageable size. This press is suitable for a particularly large home operation, with a midsized orchard and plenty of trees, or even for a smaller commercial producer.
    • The press will take up to 40kg of milled apples and assuming you can press 3 times per hour will give a daily juice yield of up to 450 litres / 100 gallons (depending on fruit variety and ripeness).

 

  • Milled fruit is wrapped in weaved cloths and formed into ‘cheeses’ which are packed between the acacia racks. These are then pressed, with the press applying up to 12 tons of pressure. This method of juicing is especially efficient and can yield up to 75% juice by weight.
