PassyPress & SuperPassyPress

Unique extraction machine, the PassyPress and the SuperPassyPress have been designed and optimized to process passion fruits (also called maracuja) in order to maximize the yield and quality of the juice. In fact the juice maintains its light colour even when processing the highly pigmented variety of fruits (purple or red passion fruit).

Process description

The unit squeezes the fruits between two drums: one in stainless steel with a special shape and the second in food grade rubber. An upper pushing device help the fruit to enter between the rollers.
The passage in between the rollers causes the breakage of the peel allowing out-coming of seeds and juice which can easily flow through a squeezing grill.
in the SuperPassyPress models, the peels are fed to the dedicated peel shaker to recover the potential residual juice.
