Being a product for transformation into various delicacies (such as juices, yogurt bases, baby foods, ice cream and jam) fruit puree has always been a focus in Bertuzzi’s 80 year-old history.
If apricots or peaches, cherries or plums, there is hardly any application for which Bertuzzi is incapable in offering the right solution to meet its customers’ needs.
Washing and sorting
Expeller Maxi is a stoning machine fitted for the treatment of peaches, plums, apricots and cherries. This patented machine has a capacity of up to 18000 kg/h of fresh fruit and it is capable of processing also hard and large fruits without severe losses in yield. JumboCreamer is used to clean the stones coming from Expeller Maxi in order to recover all possible pulp.
Cold peeling and cooking
For a perfect separation of flesh and juice from peels Bertuzzi is proud of ist highly sophisticated pulper, refiner and turbo extractor Turbomax. The machine can be supplied with inverter suitable to adjust the rotation speed and with an inert gas injection device, for protecting product against oxidation. The same machine is the basis of our cold peeling system.
Puree can be optionally concentrated. Depending on the final degrees Brix to be reached, it can be concentrated either by our plate evaporator Frumaco or by Luber. Luber is designed to concentrate in a single fast passage either thermo-sensitive liquid or highly viscous products.
