MEKU Leaf juice press
Order no.: 1.0200, 1.0211, 1.0212
The leaf juice press is ideally suited for extracting juice from plant parts such as leaves, buds, and germs.
Two special roller systems are available:
- - corrugated roller system for solid leaves
- - smooth roller system for thin leaves
The two rolls are pressed against each other pulling in the leaves which are furnished to the centre of the rolls. The juice runs down from the slanted rolls, and may be collected on the tip of the lower roll. The drops are catched by means of a small plastic tube that must be held against the tip.
Especially for working with material of low liquid content, the buffer unit (order no. 1.0204) eases the process of collecting the juice from the rolls. The buffer mixes up with the plant juice to a homogenous mixture. Oxidation of juice is reduced and preservability for a longer period is achieved .
For safety reasons, the rolls are surrounded by a plexiglass part with inlet port that simultaneously serves as splash protection. A safety coupling between the rolls and the motor prevents damage of the device when using unsuitable materials.
At the end of the extraction process the rolls are cleaned with water by means of a special rinsing nozzle.
Water flushing is controlled electronically and is activated by a push button at the side of the press stand.
The rinsing time may be adjusted by means of a control knob.
