HOW IT WORKS
1. PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS
- Before using the press it is advisable to remove any traces of dust from the internal parts (which will come into contact with the grapes) with a brush and/or air jet and use a damp cloth to clean the cage, crescents and pieces.
2. FILLING THE PRESS
- Remove all internal wood and ensure that the cage is closed using the pins provided.
- Raise the ratchet upwards along the threaded screw (turning it anticlockwise), fill the cage with the product to be pressed (as in the photo) and position the half-moons (the two robust half-circles made of steamed beech wood) which, once joined, will coincide with the diameter of the cage itself and in the centre will leave a gap only for the central screw. The pieces of wood should be placed on top of these, perpendicular to the direction in which the half-moons have been positioned, as shown in the photo.
3. PREPARATION FOR PRESSING
- Lower the ratchet, turning it clockwise, until it rests on the pieces.
- Position the jumpers, making sure that the tips fit into the circular holes in the crown (the crown is in the ratchet movement).
- Insert the lever or rod into the hole in the ratchet and secure with the butterfly screw.
- Stand in front of the lever and grasp it with both hands and move the lever forwards and backwards.
- The action exerted on the lever determines an advancement of the jumpers from the hole in which they are inserted, to the hole immediately following; this determines the rotation movement of the ratchet downwards, with consequent pressing action of the woods on the product.
- When the ratchet is lowered until it reaches the upper edges of the cage, it is necessary to interrupt the action, in order to fill the cage with grapes again.
- Once the last pressing is complete, the winch is returned to the top (by turning it anti-clockwise), all the wood is removed, the cage is removed, the pomace left pressed in the press is extracted and thoroughly cleaned.
