The range of PERA hoppers is suitable for any type of installation and allows a regular supply of grapes to the destemming and sorting equipment.
“We have a PERA vibrating hopper to receive the grapes. We chose this equipment to feed the grapes into the H600 destemmer to make sure all the stems were separated from the grapes. This high quality hopper is robust and reliable. The grapes pass through at a rate of approximately 25 tonnes per hour which enables us to deal with our entire harvest easily. “
