Hoppers with sliding crusher
Designed to facilitate the press-filling operation, the hopper–crusher unit fills the press directly by receiving the grapes from tipping containers without scattering or damaging the fruit while allowing for the clusters or berries to be crushed in order to release the juice and pulp before pressing.
The SRAML range of loading hoppers with the crushing unit, whose sliding system allows the hopper to be used without the operating crusher, enables the winemaker to fill the press quickly and without scattering when using small boxes or forklift-turning containers. Since the grapes are fed directly to the press, no pump is needed which minimizes damage to the berries, greatly enhancing the quality of wine.
When adding the crushing operation, berries or clusters are squeezed gently between two rubber rollers that can be adjusted to the size of the clusters to avoid grinding of the stems, berry skins or seeds.

“We have been using the SRAML pneumatic press for five years now and it still runs like clockwork. We are extremely happy with their grape destemmer, as well, and we are seriously considering buying their complete bottling line. It is crucial to have such a dedicated team because when you are in the middle of the harvest and something goes wrong, every minute counts.”
Zmago Petrič, Owner of Guerila wines, Slovenia

“Pneumatic presses with inert gas enable a constant flow of nitrogen during the pressing process, protecting the wine against oxidation. We are practically neighbours and it was our winery who bought the first SRAML press. It must be an excellent product line to have lasted this long.” Samo Premrn, Owner of Pasji rep Wines, Slovenia
“We are really grateful for the collaboration with SRAML. We definitely had an unusual request and process. Sraml managed to make it happen. We appreciate that the company supplied us with the right machinery. Over the years, we have been experimenting on how to convert leftover fruit into leather-like material. This machine enables us to bring an eco-friendly and animal-friendly product to the market."
