The FF50 citrus fruit juice finisher is made up of a helical screw of variable pitch and a sieve normally with 0.5 mm diameter holes (or other diameters on request). It has 95 holes per square centimetre and is supported by solid frame made in two halves, through which the juice to be refined is forced out by pressure, avoiding any shaking and letting in of air.
The screw revolves at 380 revs per minute and has a 357 mm diameter. The supporting frame made out of perforated steel can be easily dismantled for cleaning and steel sheet replacement. A piston controlled by compressed air automatically regulating extraction pressure carries out the excess pulp discharge. The capacity is 375 litres per minute depending on the pulp content, the product temperature and the diameter of the steel sheet holes.
