Kronen GDM 35 Grape Destemmer

Wednesday, 29 July, 2015 | Supplied by: Reactive Engineering Pty Ltd

The GDM 35 Grape Destemmer is suitable for the automatic destemming of grapes, loosening the grapes without damaging them.

The operating principle is based on two push-pull movements in opposite directions. By generating this movement, two plates will move back and forth in opposite directions from each other. Both plates are placed at an angle, resulting in a wide opening at the top and a narrow exit opening at the bottom. By dropping grapes in between the two plates, the movement will rotate the grapes from the stems and will also transport the grapes towards the exit opening.

To maximise the grip on the grapes, a latex friction cover is placed over the destemming plates. The exit opening can be adjusted by means of a turning wheel. An air-drying unit, placed just above the infeed opening of the machine, is controlled via a selection switch. The destemmed grapes are then gently put on a conveyor belt for further processing or end control.

The grape destemmer is said to increase productivity and reduce labour cost. The machine has a capacity of up to 240 kg/h, depending on grape variety
