These are very new to us and break away from the traditional way to press fruit and grapes.

The press has a vertical neoprene rubber membrane or bladder (similar to an inner tube on a tyre) which fits in the centre inside the rounded perforated stainless steel shield.

The pressure will build up in the rubber bladder with the addition of water. As the bladder fills up and pressure increases then the bladder expands; squeezing the juice out of the fruit, pushing it towards the stainless steel casing.

Advantages

  • Much quicker than a traditional press
  • Easier to clean
  • Less oxidation of juice
  • Less effort as the water does all the work
  • Great choice of sizes 20,40 and 80 litre
  • Works off a standard mains tap (preferably outside)

Using the HydroPress

The press comes with TWO covers. The FIRST cover is a mesh sack that can (some customers prefer to use this, others don’t bother) be placed inside the water press fitting right up to the stainless steel shield. This should be tucked under the S/S casing so it doesn’t rise during the pressing.

The top should then be folded over the apples at the top before sealing with the lid and screwing down tightly. This will allow for clearer juice to be extracted and will have no bits in it. The press will however, operate perfectly well without the sack.

The SECOND cover will go over the outside of the press and will act as anti-splash shield.

On the top of the centre spindle is a valve to release any air build up. To work this all you need do is turn the water on and when it starts to fill the bladder open the valve. A hissing noise will be heard as air is released. Keep this open until water comes out of the valve. When this starts to happen simply close the valve.

The press comes with both male ( 3/4") and female (1/2") GEKA fittings. The outlet hose looks is a standard 1/2" hose barb.

A pressure of 2 bar is ideal (3 bar is too much) so an ordinary outside tap (1/2” water hose is good) will do the job.
