Rotovib Double Rollersorter with Control Device

Rotovib Key Features & Benefits

Rotovib’s robust, easy to maintain design is built with simplicity and longevity in mind:

  • A special 3-D stainless steel design makes the Armbruster extremely easy to clean.
  • Independent Variable Frequency Drives for the Pin Shaft Speed, Vibrating level and each individual RollerSorter gives the operator the ability to fine tune and adjust the machine to varietal and vineyard variables.
  • These adjustments can be made during operation or prior to receiving different varietals and vineyard sources.
  • The Single Rollersorter option allows the winery to reduce the overall MOG level in the destemmed product.
