Making of Organic Aronia Juice with a Hiller Decanter


Our customers profit from low operating costs thanks to the reduced consumption of energy and fresh water, as well as reduced personnel, servicing and maintenance costs. What is more, high throughput rates coupled with maximum yields and a long machine service life ensure maximum cost-effectiveness.

Hiller decanters process up to 30,000 kilograms per hour at the maximum capacity level. Control systems and design-based procedure optimisations ensure smooth-running operation, short cleaning and setup times as well as flexible setting options during ongoing production processes. The cleaning of the machine runs fully automatically via a CIP cleaning system. Depending on the application in question, our decanters are available in different hygiene versions. For the food sector, we currently offer decanters in three sizes, covering a throughput range of approx. 1m³ to up to 25m³.

Many processes can also be optimised if there is an upstream conditioner with the decanter. This ensures optimal cell breakdown with raw goods. This improves the consistency of the end product and valuable constituents are released.
