Franz Weber, FRESHCUP Germany on the optimized Zumoval juicer:

"Vertical feeding system should result in many fewer stoppages"

For many years, Freshcup Germany has been the commercial agent for Spanish juice machine manufacturer Zumoval. Despite continuing Corona problems and its associated conditions, the firm wants to announce some novelties, says Franz weber, managing director of Freshcup.

Retailers were not allowed to operate juice machines at all for a while, due to the risk of infection and rules on distancing at the POS. That meant there had been hardly any new acquisitions. "We've been able to get a few projects underway again and are confident that things will move forward again, especially with regard to the optimized pressing processes."

Vertical fruit feeding
The juice presses from Zumoval have been completely revised and modified, Weber explains. "There has been a fair amount of innovation. The machines now have an internal drip grid and are available in two versions, either with manual removal of pulp and pips (sweeper) or now also with automatic removal. The competition doesn't have any of that in this form."

Previously, according to Weber, there were annoyances as fruit could get stuck during the pressing process. The vertical feeding of the fruit should now change this for good. "Even if a piece of fruit were to get stuck, which of course can happen at any time, it would immediately feed through up again. This means there will be significantly fewer disruptions."

Optimized cleaning
The machines can be equipped with a shower unit, and if there is no direct water connection, there is also a water pump/canister combination for this purpose. Weber: "This speeds up and facilitates cleaning and ensures better hygiene. With the foam cleaner offered for this purpose, things become even easier. These foam cleaners - approved for food, of course - dissolve any deposits and are then rinsed out with the shower cleaning process."
