The Manufacturing Process

Create economies of scale across your system

Each stage of a citrus processing system requires specific types of industrial rotating equipment and proper operation and maintenance of this equipment is creates opportunities for efficiencies and increases in productivity.

Irrigation Systems

In the cultivation stage, rotating pumps are used in irrigation systems to supply water to the citrus trees, often through drip irrigation or sprinkler systems.

Harvesting Equipment

Some types of citrus harvesting equipment may incorporate rotating components to shake the tree or otherwise assist in removing the fruit.

Juice Extraction

Once the citrus fruits are harvested, they are often processed to extract the juice. This typically involves a form of rotating machinery, such as a juicer or extractor, which uses pressure and rotation to squeeze the juice from the fruit.

Oil Extraction

The oil from citrus peels is also a valuable product. Rotating equipment, such as screw presses or centrifuges, is used to extract these oils.


For juice that is to be sold as a beverage, pasteurization is a common step. The pasteurization process may involve the use of pumps or other rotating machinery to move the juice through the system.


The juice is then filtered to remove pulp and other solids. This process often involves the use of centrifugal separators, which spin the juice at high speed to separate the solids.


Finally, the juice or other citrus products are packaged for sale. This process can involve various types of rotating machinery, such as filling machines and conveyor systems.

Waste Management

The leftover peels and other waste products are often processed using rotating equipment like screw conveyors and pumps, either for disposal or for further use, such as in composting or as animal feed.
