LT MOG Separating System
P&L Specialties’ LT (Le Trieur) is mounted underneath or downstream from the destemmer, this machine's innovative design allows unripe "shot" berries, stem jacks, raisins and Material-Other-than-Grape (MOG) to pass through a wedge-wire screen.
LT's gentle shaking motion then allows the whole, ripe berries to easily pass onward. This technology dramatically reduces the labor required for post-destemmer sorting. As featured in a recent Wine Business Monthly New Products section, “The LT means a giant leap forward in the quality of must going to your fermenters!”
Manufactured entirely of stainless steel, and equipped with a VFD for complete range of speed control. The LT is very easy to operate, clean and allows juice to be captured. The LT can be designed to fit into your existing line or, of course, will integrate easily into a new P&L Specialties’ processing line.
Hi-Impact Nema 4X and UL listed enclosure provides better protection of the electronic controls.
Remote control pendant with ‘on/off’, speed ‘up’ and speed ‘down’ buttons on 25’ tether.
Optional parallel screens available in 3/16” , 5/16th”, 7/16th” gaps. Allows you to sort specifically to your fruit variety and/or condition. We have had repeated success sorting in a broad range from .25 ton/hour to 4 tons/hour. Results vary with condition of fruit, degree of separation/sorting needed and production speed you require.
In production in California, Washington and Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Canada this season we saw dramatic reduction of shot berries, petioles, leaf, unripe green seeds and insects. U.S. Patent #7,581,646. It is the ONLY patent on MOG separation equipment!
