The Cider Production Line kit type CIDER LINE PROFI 1000A-240E (in this the recommended fully equipped expanded configuration) includes all equipment necessary for the annual production from 8000 to 24000 liters of cider and also the most useful expanded equipment for more effective work in the plant. . The actual annual production capacity depends on the selected duration of the production cycle (typically 2-6 months). This configuration of the CiderLine includes set of fermenting/maturing cylindrical-conical tanks with usable volume 4x 1000 lt. All tanks except one are using for both cider fermentation and maturation process. One the serving tank is used as a buffer tank during the fruit-must cleaning process, carbonation process or bottling process (or filling a cider into other packages like kegs, PET etc.)
Automatic control of the cider fermenting and maturating process, The system of the fermentation CCT tanks are equipped with simple PLC temperature controllers and central PC computer with the temperature planning software.
Notice : This offer does not include any services that are necessary for delivery and instalation of the cider line profi (installation work, transport and accomodation of workers, transport of the cider production technology, start up, training of ciderman …) We calculate them individividually for each project – only for your demand. The simple design with independent devices allows easy assembling of all cider production line by customer without our specialists.
