Citrus, pineapple and tropical fruit juice extractor

Polyfruit is the only machine existing in the international market able to extract the juice both from citrus (after the extraction of the essential oil by Polycitrus M6) and tropical fruit (pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, melon, guava and banana).
The yelds are higher in quantity and quality than those of any other type of extractor and due to its working principle any contact between peel and juice is minimized.
Polyfruit juice extractor can be configurated in several versions, each of one suits to a specific fruit variety.
The configurations can be easily changed from one to the other fruit by a rapid replacement of some of its components provided as a kit with the extractor.
The operation needs just one operator and about 20 minutes to be completed.
Polyfruit juice extractors are very reliable because of their design and construction, they need low maintenance charges that guarantee them a very long lifetime.

Working principle

  • The Polyfruit can receive citrus and tropical fruit into its feed hopper. It can handle whole fruit of any size, without any previous grading of sizes.
  • A horizontal knife fixed between two counter rolling cylinders cuts the fruit into two halves. Then the half fruit is dragged by the rolling cylinders along the squeezing channels: here the juice comes out and is filtered through a perforated stainless steel sheet.
    The channels have different profiles according to the variety of fruit being processed.
  • The squeezing pressure on fruit can be easily adjusted according to their assortments, ripening and the thickness of the peel, in order to get the maximum output of juice without compromising the quality. 
  • The peels are ejected exhausted by two proper stainless steel chutes and conveyed to the peel silo.
    The citrus and the pineapple peels could be carried to the Polypress PL 1 screw press to get back the remaining juice.
  • For the citrus we produce also the Polyfruit Spellalbedo type, which is provided with an adjustable device to remove the remaining membranes and pulps from the albedo to get cleaned peels to the manufacturing of candies fruit with a changeable thickness.
    The cleaned peels are ejected from a different exit than the one of the remaining membranes and pulps that are led to Polypress PL 1 screw press to get back the secondary remaining.
  • The juice is conveyed outwards through an underlying tank and then is pumped to the 2 EPV juice finisher.
  • The squeezing and conveying of juice is done in closed chambers in order to avoid the contact with air.
