Scharfenberger Europress 15 to 60 hl

Scharfenberger have been making the Europress pneumatic grape press for over 30 years and in that time, both the product and the company have developed a strong reputation for quality, technology and constant product development. With its roots based in Germany’s wine growing regions, Scharfenberger have now developed their business on a global basis with Europress presses being sold all over the world.

Continually developed over the years, the Europress is now available in 16 different sizes from 6 to 320 hl press basket capacity.

The Europress is available with three different press systems (open (P), closed (T) or dual (S)).

The open press system has a press drum with narrow conical slots on one side; these are shaped and spaced to provide the highest quality juice and prevent blockage of the slots.

The closed press system has removable interior juice channels, the juice drains directly into the juice tray.

With so many options our customers can choose the ideal grape press for their winery’s preferences and requirements.
