This is a great custom cider press which is about 3 years old. It is a 20" rack and cloth press with a 220 V hammer mill to create the pomace. All the components which come in contact with the cider are stainless steel. The other components are coated with a food grade enamel. All electric components are waterproof. It comes with a HDPE form for making the pillows, as well as 6 HDPE racks. Without additional racks it can produce 40-50 gallons an hour. This could easily be doubled with extra racks.
Currently a 12 ton bottle jack is used for compression but could easily be upgraded to a hydraulic cylinder for faster turn around. There is a winch mounted on the side of the press for easy return of the press plate.
