The pneumatic air spring can be used in installations that aim to extract juice from the following fruits and vegetables:
- Apples and pears
Other special Products:
- Coffee grounds
- Medicinal plants
- Drinks made from cereal processing
The main functions of the airstroke in the juice processing machine
Before extracting the juice, the food has to follow a certain path in the juice producing machine, The air spring’s main application is very similar as in the paper industry’s roller tensioning device, roll press tensioner and edge control system, which can be seen inside the application fields in ORIA industrial air springs for paper mills.
In the following lines, the main functions of the air spring for this type of machinery are detailed.
- Web tensioning device: Consists on tensioning the web/belt that carries the food or juice.
- Edge control system: Its aim is to Align the web or belt that carries de juice.
- Roll press application: The air actuator acts as a pneumatic cylinder in order to press the food and extract make the juice.
The most common models used in the above-mentioned applications from the ORIA range of products are the following items: M-20, M-30, M-90 and 10×2, which are equivalent to firestone airstroke actuators and airmount isolators, Pirelli air springs, Pneuride/Springride rubber air bellows, and Contitech and Goodyear pneumatic actuators.
