The Pinetronic is a unique extraction unit, suitable for round and ripe pineapples, able to extract the high quality juice in hygienic conditions, as the juice and the pulp have an extremely low contact to the peel.

Process description

The machine cuts the fruit in two halves, squeezes and scrapes the pulp adherent to the peel, eliminates the peel thus obtaining a high quality pulpy juice, in high hygienic conditions.
The fruits are conveyed to the loading hopper and are led to the centring group which pushes them against the rotating blade thus obtaining a diametrical cut. The half fruits fall between the two special extraction rollers and are driven against a refining grid.
The peels are then taken by a third toothed roller which, thanks to a special scraping blade, removes all pulp still adherent to the peel.
The Pinetronic allows various settings to match the characteristics of the fruit:

A multifruit processing line with CitroEvolution3 for the orange and lemon juice extraction andPinetronic 1SS for pineapple juice extraction
