The drainage system as developed by Bucher is unique and stands for a revolution in the fruit juice industry. The raw material is pressed by a hydraulically driven piton-cylinder-system whereby the drainage-elements assist an optimised space-dejuicing, in line with a decent pre-filtration of the juice. The coaction of filling and smooth pressing together with high pressures and intermediate loosening are given uniquely with this technology. Thereby, new dejuicing channels are created for the liquids with each pressing stroke.
- Maximised yields
- Juices with outstanding quality
- Extracts with very low solid content
Thanks to this unique extraction technology by Bucher, extremely high yields are possible. This is demonstrated in low residual moisture of the pomace as well. The reduction of disposal costs is another welcome side effect. Due to the outstanding pre-filtering, the sediment content in the filtrate is very low. The effort of the subsequent processing steps becomes reduced and therefore the costs minimalized. Additional yield and reduced disposal costs in comparison to other systems make the Bucher systems extremely economical and are resulting in a very short ROI (return on investment).
