Motorized Stemmer/Crusher - Painted Body - Stainless Steel Hopper
How the destemmer works: The grape clusters are sent through the rollers by rotating paddles within the hopper. The crushed clusters then fall into an elongated trough. The trough has perforated holes that allow the pulp to go through but not the stems. Inside the trough is a series of paddles that spin at a high rate of speed. These paddles slap the pulp through the holes, while at the same time, auger the stems out the end of the trough. Both the crusher and de-stemmer operate simultaneously with the single cranking of the wheel.
The Crusher & Destemmer will process 3,300 pounds of grapes per hour.
