Passion fruit processing

The name of this fruit already releases a certain part of its exotic characteristics. Passion fruit juice is used as superior ingredient in rather small amounts for a large number of products such as mixed juices and tropical cocktails.
In order to maximize yield and product quality, Bertuzzi has developed dedicated machines for juice extraction and very accurate processes for juice treatment.

Washing and sorting

Fresh passion fruits are typically received in cases and poured into our washing basin InoxAll. For a perfect washing of the fruits we advise the installation of a brushing machine.

Juice extraction

Passypress and Superpassy are our dedicated machines for passionfruit pulp extraction, with a capacity ranging from 800 to 4500 kg/h. They separates peel from pulp by making the fruits "explode". Both machines are suitable for the small purple variety as well as the larger yellow variety.
In order to remove seeds and refine the juice, we offer our refiners SuperCreamer and JumboCreamer with the specifically required sieve types. A centrifuge can be used to further reduce the pulp content and eliminate the starch.
