Easy, Fast and Consistent Grape Processing
Our motorized, Italian made Crusher Destemmer is capable of crushing 2.2 tons of grapes per hour! This is the ideal size for both smaller and larger harvests, and will get your must into the fermenter quickly and easily. Rubber rollers gently crush the grapes while helping keep the stems as intact as possible, an effort to reduce rougher tannins making it to your finished product. The rollers are self adjusting and spring loaded, making it so that your crush isn’t put to a halt by a small stone or stick. Whether you get your grapes from Downtown Reno or the Napa Valley, this will give you unbelievable processing ability and make the day go fast and easy! Don’t forget to rent our Spiedel Bladder Press to press out your must!
How It Works
Operation is simple. Grapes are loaded into the top bin and gently pushed towards the rollers by a stainless steel screw. As rubber rollers crush the grapes, they fall into the destemming chamber, which features a removable basket that rotates, allowing your grapes to fall through into your bucket. The stems are rotated out by the destemming shaft and exit at the end of the crusher destemmer where they fall into a bucket and can be easily discarded.
The Technical Stuff
Our Crusher Destemmer is powered by a 110v, 1 HP motor that can push up to 3000 lbs an hour. You will need to provide an extension cord. Construction is 100% stainless steel, with the exception of rubber rollers, and cleaning is as simple as removing two bolts.
