The original with the double-membrane technology MERLINPLUS+ that is supplied with the double membrane and the vertical electropolished stainless steel juice channels lets you obtain excellent press results that are of potential benefit to you.
Gentle pressing for the best juice quality MERLINPLUS+ offers you a particularly large filling opening that spans the entire length of the press. This greatly simplifies and accelerates the filling and emptying processes.
Be it mash or whole-cluster filling, the unique filling opening ensures optimum distribution of the material to be pressed, while dispensing with all rotations for enhancing distribution.
The juice obtained from the mash can be discharged directly from the vertical juice channels, thus ensuring optimum pre-juicing and high filling capacities. These features significantly reduce the total pressing time, thus reducing the mechanical load on the material to be pressed.
Easy to operate
The easy and intuitive operation via a touch panel allows access to all pressing programs that have been developed and perfected over the years and that are favoured by leading oenologists and experienced users around the globe.
Thanks to the large filling opening, the pommace can be completely emptied within a short time. For easy cleaning, the vertical juice channels can be dismantled and installed manually in a few simple steps. In combination with the corner and edge-free press body, a drastic reduction in cleaning times is achieved. This, in turn, leads to a highly hygienic cleaning result.
THE WILLMES PRESSING PRINCIPLE
Double membrane technology In contrast to a half-sided membrane, the double-sided membrane has a substantially larger (double) area of pressure application. In terms of physics, this means less pressure expenditure and less compression of the material to be pressed at the same force, which acts uniformly on the material to be pressed from all sides.
Vertical, flexible juice channels
The double-sided membrane presses the material against the vertical juice discharge areas, which act like natural drains. Regardless of the filling height, this always results in the same short juice paths, allowing the juice to drain more directly and quickly. If the membrane is relieved of pressure (vacuum released), the press contents fall together. The lateral pressure direction and the flexibility of the juice channels lead to continual self-cleaning of the mesh tissue.
As a result, the rotational effort for crumbling is negligible and fewer pressing cycles are required. Thus the mechanical load on the grapes is kept to a minimum, resulting in a lower quantity of lees and a higher yield of premium-quality juice.
