Description

  • Expertly crafted stainless steel fruit press made by the original manufacturer of the bladder press
  • Features a slotted screen which mirrors commercial press designs
  • Higher juice yield (65-70%) compared to other press models
  • Can be used with any domestic water supply that provides at least 36 psi of pressure
  • Easy to clean after use—simply spray down with a hose and towel dry
  • Made in Germany by Speidel

Speidel was the original manufacturer of the bladder press. While similar to the Italian models in operation, Speidel offers a few quality upgrades. To obtain a better press Speidel uses a slotted screen, similar to what is offered on large commercial presses, instead of a screen with circular perforations. Speidel presses also offer superior hardware and a recessed valve assembly (to reduce accidental breakage). Insert bag and outer splash guard included. Compared to other presses, the Speidel hydro press has a higher juice yield (~65-70%) and works completely without electricity and with minimal effort.

This press can be used with any domestic water supply the provides at least 2.5 bar (36 psi) of pressure. Pressing pressure and pressing time is simply regulated by the water flow. These units are extremely easy to care for and can be cleaned quickly by simply spraying it down with a hose after use. You will find the quality you'd expect from a product that is 100% German-made.

Speidel has been shifting their bladder presses from painted to all stainless, and we're pretty excited about it. Although the orange painted versions have their own aesthetic appeal, nothing beats the performance and practicality of stainless steel. Stainless is much easier to clean and much more resistant to rust. The painted versions are likely to chip over time through normal wear and tear, creating small crevasses for bacteria to call home. No such worries when working this beautiful, brushed stainless press.

Overall height is 42" and basket height is 23.5".  A press cycle averages around 45 minutes.

Includes:

  • Complete press assembly
  • Inner mesh bag (to keep fruit from getting in the stainless basket and make cleanup easier)
  • Plastic "spray-protection bag" to keep juice from squirting out
  • Fittings to connect garden hose
  • Instruction manual
  • Presses ship in a corrugated box. Minor assembly (attaching legs) is required before use
  • 1 Year Warranty on all parts!

FAQ:

  • Can the press be operated with air pressure?
    • No. These are hydraulic presses that may only be operated with water. When operating with compressed air, there is a risk of explosion and a very high risk of injury if the membrane bursts due to excess pressure or damage.
  • Is a minimum water pressure required?
    • In order to ensure the function and the best possible yield, there should be a minimum water pressure of 2-2.5 bar on the press.
  • What if the water supply delivers more than 3 bar?
    • In principle, this is not a problem, as if the water pressure inside the press exceeds 3 bar, the pressure relief valve opens and there is no pressure-related damage.
  • How many apples make how much juice?
    • On average, 50kg (110 lbs) of apples produce around 30-35L (8-9 gal) of juice, depending on the variety and quality of the apples.

Great size press for home wine/cider making
I tried 40L size first considering cost savings and easier to handle size/weight.

But 40L is fairly small size requiring more (inefficient) reloads especially when processing apples due to more solids as compared to grapes.

For reference I processed 300lb of apples with the 40L version and that was a pain. 90L would be much better option for these quantities of apples.

Grapes are less problematic, but you always can inflate the bladder a bit if you have less material to fill the press.
I was able to press about 20gal of must in a single press with 90L.

On top of that the 90L is not significantly heavier/larger than 40L. One still can lift and move it with a bit more effort of course.

Overall if you are debating between 40L and 90L I would say:
40L if you are processing less than 100lb of apples or less than 20-40gal of must.
90L if more than that and you want to waste less time.
