The Smart Press range of pneumatic presses from Pera Pellenc winemaking equipment.

Smart Press Range

The new Smart Press range of pneumatic presses meets the needs of the most demanding winemakers. They are equipped with the latest innovations. The Fast Press drainage trays and the smart pressing system allow optimal use of the press to extract high-quality juices. The Smart Press pneumatic press range is available for all cellars, from 20 to 600 hl in the closedcage version, and 40 to 150 hl in the open-cage version.

"I decided to invest in a PELLENC PERA OENOPROCESS press for several reasons:
● The quality and speed of the juice extraction
● The automatic washing system in the Smart Press has built-in washing—including under the grids—which delivers a very satisfactory result.
● The technical support provided by PELLENC PERA OENOPROCESS and its distributor from installation all the way to use during harvesting."

OPTIMISED DESIGN FOR MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE:



Pera-Pellenc R&D engineers have conceived simple, efficient systems which improve Smart Press pressing efficiency. There are significant improvements: better filling capacity, improved drainage, better pressing time, easy to use.


Optimised design for pressing to meet all needs:



• Increased drainage surface: up to 360% more*
• Greater filling capacity: up to 30% more*
• Faster pressing: up to one hour less*


The Smart Press range is available with two types of cage to meet all wineries requirement:
Mode de programmation Easy Press 2 du pressoir pneumatique Smart Press
Open cage
from 40 to 150 hl
Pierced vat = no scraping effect, and better cleaning.
Mode de programmation Easy Press 2 du pressoir pneumatique Smart Press
Cage fermée
Du 20 au 600 hl
Grilles Fast Press = meilleur égouttage et lavage facilité

The Smart Press cages are fitted with a set of important elements to optimise pressing and maintenance:



• An air-diffuser drain for better-balanced pressing on the membrane • The membrane is made of food-grade polyurethane (compliant with CE/FDA food standards) for pressing even with a very small quantity of grapes
• A coil brings the pomace to the door(s) for total, fast emptying of the press.
• A technical access hatch (inspection cover: on 65 to 600hl) to give access to the air part of the vat, and help with maintenance of the membrane.

one simple and smart programming

The new intuitive Touch Press tactile interface and the Easy Press 2 smart pressing system simplify use from the outset:

• Pressing cycles customised to meet the needs of the cellar (logistics, quality, etc.)
• Real-time adjustable pressing programme
• Save the programmes (in advanced mode) on a USB memory stick for perfect traceability
•The pressing cycle depends on two criteria set by the operator: quality and dryness of the pomace
• Real-time information on any problems for faster response time by operators

Two modes of programming available

Advanced

Advanced programming mode for the Smart Press pneumatic press

Customisable

• Programming of the different pressing phases by the operator: pressure, maintenance times, number of breaking-up cycles
• 20 programs with 99 possible programming lines

Easy Press 2

Smart

• The automat manages the pressing cycles according to the juice flow and the end of the cycles depending on the desired degree of dryness
• Pressing time and number of breaking up cycles optimized
• Better quality of the extracted juices
• Pressing stops when the press cake reaches a certain dryness
• 5 predefined types of grapes: destemmed grapes, whole clusters, fermented pomace, shot grapes, end of maceration

OPTIMISED DESIGN FOR QUICK, EASY CLEANING:



The new Smart Press has features to help with cleaning. In the closed-cage version, the Fast Press drainage trays have few nooks and crannies and help ensure the pomace is completely removed. The quick fold-back system gives complete access under the trays. The open-cage presses (SPO) are designed to be quick and easy to clean. The cage is pierced to make it easier to clean the slots and reduce washing time and water consumption. The built-in automatic washing systems help reduce washing time to less than 30 minutes.

SPC- Easy-to-open Fast Press grids

The design is optimised for easier washing of the press:
• The new Fast Press drainage grids and the emptying coil gather the pomace towards the chosen door, so it can be removed entirely.
• The fast grid opening system makes it easier to thoroughly wash the vat. Daily washing is faster: 30 minutes on average.
No more inaccessible corners, the vat is cleaned perfectly

SMART GRAPH TOOL TO HELP OPTIMISE PRESSING



Smart Graph is a decision-making aid that allows the winemaker to understand and optimise the pressing. It enables a real-time diagnostic directly on the screen on the press, or later on a computer with Smart Graph software. By analysing the curves, the winemaker can get an understanding of problems arising from filling, clogging, etc. and take steps to optimise the various pressing phases (filling, drainage, pressing, and so on). This has a direct impact on the quality of the wines (sludge rate, rapid extraction of juices = limits oxidation) and decisions about bringing in the harvest.

Optimising the various pressing steps has a significant impact on the pressing time. In many cases, it shortens the pressing process and saves the cellar a considerable amount of time.

Subsequent visualisation of curves on a computer with the Smart Graph software


Smart Graph lets the user visualise the progress of the pressing process in real time.
The following information can be displayed as a curve:

• Pressure applied by the membrane
• Axial feeding pressure (in the case of axial filling)
• Quantity of juice extracted
• Complete juice height (computer version only): percentage of juice run-off/total juice according to time elapsed
• Antioxidant injection (if Enoxy+ option)
• Conductivity (if equipped with conductivity monitoring, available as an option)
• As well as 3 additional possible parameters (depending on options)
The pressing data is stored on an SD card in the press interface.

PERA ADVANTAGES


• Better understand the pressing process by visualising the various parameters as curves on a graph
• Have operational traceability of the pressing cycles
• Save time on pressing
• Optimise your pressing cycles (stages, rotations) in real time or afterwards
• Rationalise your harvest input = optimise the logistics of bringing in the harvest

NEUTRAL GASES INJECTED DURINGCRUMBLING

In addition to Ingas, it is possible to inject a neutral gas (Nitrogen or CO2) during crumbling in order to obtain optimal protection against must oxidation.
This straightforward and effective system is controlled directly from the Touch Press interface on the press.
The operator chooses the duration and timing of the injection.





JUICE SELECTOR AND CONDUCTIVITY PROBE

It lets the operator direct the must towards one of two channels according to criteria defined by the winemaker: phases of the pressing cycle, elapsed time, conductivity.
Each channel is connected to a tank. The valves controlled by the juice selector are managed automatically thanks to the Touch Press interface on the presses.
In the pressing program, for each line of the pressing cycle, the operator selects the channel to which the juice run-off will be directed.
The 3rd channel is used to wash the pipes. The conductivity probe at the outlet of the juice tank makes it possible to set up a qualitative selection of juices according to the conductivity of the run-off.

SULFITE DOSER ON JUICE TANK

This system, controlled by the press PLC, allows the injection of liquid antioxidant into the bottom of the juice. This simple and efficient system complements the oxidation protection offered by Smart Press presses.




DOUBLE WALL*

The double wall allows for cooling and maintaining the temperature of the harvest inside the press.
It enables maceration at a controlled temperature.
This option is available on Smart Press SPC 240 to 600 presses.

*The effectiveness of the system depends on many factors (climatic factors, harvest input temperature, etc.)
