Crush Pads

We can receive hand harvested fruit in small half-ton bins, or machine harvested in gondolas. The receiving pad consists of a Weightronix truck scale and printer, Two 7 ton Membrane presses (www.euromachinesusa.com) with s/s dump hopper for wholecluster pressing. Two destemmer / crushers: Rauch E20 and Euroselect ES, to ensure uninterrupted receiving capacity. Both presses utilize direct to press systems, if requested, to minimize solids and for “dug-out” red fermentations. Our 50 ton Refrigeration system (www.rti2000.com) ensures more than sufficient capacity for rapid cooling of juice. Tube in tube must chiller capable of decreasing must temperature 20 degrees farenheit. Additionally we have a 700 KW generator to ensure uninterrupted electrical service.
