“We are very satisfied with the performance of this new press. It is both faster and quieter. The drains are completely different from the ones on the old presses. With the drip trays, there is more drainage surface, so drainage is faster. This means we can put more grapes into the press via the axial feed. Pressing is also faster. The interface is very easy to use, and pressing cycles can be adjusted easily. The closed juice tray, and the injection of nitrogen and SO2 minimize oxidation. Nitrogen is injected during filling via the trays and the SO2 is injected on to the pomace to prevent oxidation and extract lovely green juices.
We have had excellent results in our wines. The rosés show great promise, with the lovely colors our customers are looking for, and our white Sauvignon explodes with wonderful aromas of tropical fruit. Washing is very efficient. We used the automatic washing cycle every day to clean under the trays. Once a week we remove the trays for more thorough cleaning. They are very easy to open as there is just one bolt for each tray, which you just swing out to clean underneath. It takes us about 30 minutes to open the trays, clean underneath and close them again.
We are very satisfied with the quality of our Pera press and the excellent service we receive.”

OPTIMIZED DESIGN FOR QUICK, EASY CLEANING:
The design is optimized for easier washing of the press:
- The new Fast Press drainage grids and the emptying coil gather the pomace towards the chosen door, so it can be removed entirely.
- The fast grid opening system makes it easier to thoroughly wash the vat. Daily washing is faster: 30 minutes on average.
- No more inaccessible corners, the vat is cleaned perfectly
