Top-Quality All-Stainless European Juice Press

These top-quality juice presses come from Slovenia. They are easy to use and efficient. Pour ground fruit into the press, close the cover and connect the press to your garden hose. Using household water pressure, the rubber bladder expands outward, pressing the fruit evenly against the inner surface of the basket.

The pressure gauge allows for accurate monitoring during pressing. A pressure limiting valve allows for long, slow pressings. A pressure dump valve prevents over-pressurization.

Note 1: Tree fruit must be ground and grapes crushed and de-stemmed prior to pressing.

Note2: These presses are too large to ship UPS Ground. We include them in the shopping cart for informational purposes only. Please call us to order and we can discuss your delivery options.

Operating the LANCMAN Water Bladder Press

  • Setting Up The Press

    • 1. Clean Press Before Using: Please Review the OESCO, Inc. HACCP Statement Included in Your Press Order
    • 2. Remove cover from press
    • 3. Insert press liner, tucking it in towards the bladder at the base of the basket
    • 4. Load the press with ground or crushed fruit up to the top of the bladder
    • 5. Fold the press liner inward โ€“ covering the fruit โ€“ and place cover back on top of the press.

      Do not overtighten the wingnut

    • Juice will begin flowing as soon as you start filling the press. Have a container or transfer pump ready for use to collect juice.
  • 1. Connect your hose to the water inlet valve

  • 2. Open the VENT VALVE

  • 3. Open inlet valve all the way and the bladder will begin to fill

  • 4. When water begins flowing out of the VENT VALVE close it (hand tighten only) and then close the inlet valve all the way

  • 5. Begin to open inlet valve slightly to start the pressing.

  • 6. During the pressing process monitor the pressure gauge. The pressure should barely rise during the first 20 minutes. By slightly opening and closing the inlet valve you can control the pressure. Press slowly!!!

  • 7. The safety valve will open & drain off water during pressing if the pressure exceeds 2.5 โ€“ 3 BAR. (this is normal). Water will continue to drain until the pressure drops back into range.

  • 8. When the juice has completely finished flowing and the pressure gauge reaches 36-40 PSI, close the inlet valve and open the drain valve to empty the bladder. (on bottom of press).

  • 9. After pressing is complete, pull the release knob up and tilt the basket 90แต’ to remove pressed fruit. Also use when cleaning press.

    10. Clean press and cover. Store with all inlet & outlet valves fully open. (this is especially important for winter storage).
