Best Sugar Cane Machine Juicer – Is There an Affordable Option?

best sugar cane press juicer1

Sug­ar cane stalks are very hard to juice because they have very tough skin and fibrous inside parts. And only expen­sive com­mer­cial strength metal­lic machines can crush it prop­er­ly to squeeze the juice. No stan­dard domes­tic mas­ti­cat­ing or cen­trifu­gal juicers are designed to per­form this task with­out labo­ri­ous sug­ar cane stalk disintegration/preparation.

The sug­ar cane machines do not have a very com­pli­cat­ed con­struc­tion and most of them have a very sim­i­lar design. Most of these machines are man­u­fac­tured in Chi­na but some in India, Viet­nam, the Philip­pines, and oth­er coun­tries. Thus, there is a com­mon prob­lem with the goods pro­duced in Chi­na. They are made by unknown local com­pa­nies and dis­trib­uted by many small dis­trib­u­tors often short-lived and under a large num­ber of dif­fer­ent names.

There is two major type of ded­i­cat­ed sug­ar cane juicers are avail­able on the mar­ket – the Man­u­al or Mechan­i­cal and Elec­tric or Motor­ized – and both of them are designed to do a decent job to extract a sug­ar cane juice.

These sug­ar cane machines are com­mer­cial type and the major prob­lem with the com­mer­cial sug­ar cane ded­i­cat­ed machine is their price tag, most of them cost usu­al­ly more than $1000. Still, you can find decent ded­i­cat­ed sug­ar cane machines for an afford­able price and this arti­cle will help you to do it.

 

Manual Sugar Cane Juicer Press

The sug­ar cane man­u­al machines are very effi­cient and squeeze to the last drop. They are cranked by hand by rotat­ing the han­dle con­nect­ed to the wheel on the side of the machine.

The user feeds the sug­ar canes shoots into the feed­ing throat of the machine. The feed­ing process may require some effort from the user to push the cane into the throat. The cane shoot pressed by the machine rollers and the dry fiber is eject­ed via ejec­tion notch while the juice pass­es through the juice out­let. The mechan­i­cal sug­ar cane juicer is designed to process about 50kg of juice in an hour.

TryE is one of the Man­u­al Sug­ar­cane Juicer fam­i­ly — VEVOR, VBENLEM Sug­ar Cane Juicer, TECHTONGDA Sug­ar Cane Press Juicer, Ridge­yard Man­u­al Sug­ar Cane Juicer, ZX Man­u­al Stain­less Steel Sug­ar­cane Juicer – where all the machines share absolute­ly the same para­me­ters but sold at dif­fer­ent prices and dis­trib­uted by dif­fer­ent brands. The TryE Man­u­al Sug­ar­cane Juicer Press, how­ev­er, is the cheap­est among them.

Parts: The TryE Man­u­al Sug­ar­cane Juicer Press and most oth­er man­u­al sug­ar cane machines con­struct­ed with the fol­low­ing parts:

  • Met­al Body,
  • Hand Wheel,
  • Stain­less steel tray with filter,
  • Juice out­let,
  • Feed inlet,
  • Cin­der notch (pulp ejector),
  • 3 rollers/gears,
  • Pres­sure adjust­ing knobs.

Machine Body: The gears/rollers and remov­able shell of the machine are made of food-grade 304 stain­less steel due to expo­sure to the high-pres­sure expo­sure. The base and han­dle wheels are made of paint­ed cast iron.

The roller’s con­struc­tion comes with a gear reduc­er and shock­proof fea­tures to ensure good torque and shock­proof attributes.

Func­tion­al­i­ty:

  • Sug­ar Cane
  • Gin­ger
  • Apples,
  • Sorghum bar,
  • Corn­stalk

Hand Wheel: The machine fea­tures a cast iron crank pul­ley with a wood­en han­dle on the side of the body which is attached to the gears. The pul­ley con­struc­tion is well made, so you apply a rea­son­able amount of force to rotate the machine handle.

Juic­ing con­tain­er: The machine fea­tures a stain­less steel tray with stain­less steel fil­ter and a juic­ing out­let with a tap. The fil­ter strains the juices before it can be released with the juic­ing tap.

Feed inlet: The machine fea­tures the round feed inlet that fits a whole up to 2″ thick sug­ar canes while split­ting them allows to feed them eas­i­er. How­ev­er, the canes under 1.18”/30mm in diam­e­ter are the best to feed, oth­er­wise, they may cause over­load­ing, and the machine may stop press­ing and will require reverse action. So the canes larg­er than 1.12” in diam­e­ters is the best to break in half.

Cin­der Notch/Pulp Ejec­tor: The rear of the machine is equipped with a cin­der notch which ejects the flat and dry the cane stalks.

Gears/Rollers: The juicer comes with three (3) heavy-duty rollers which are 4.25”/108mm long, 2.95”/75mm in diam­e­ter wide, and have 0.2” teeth. The roller’s core part is made of stain­less steel to with­stand the high-stress expo­sure while the coat­ing is made of iron cast.

The Gears rotat­ed with a slow 25 RPM speed and deliv­er the high­est qual­i­ty cold-pressed juice.

Many peo­ple argue that the rollers coat­ing is not stain­less steel tend they are pre­dis­posed to rust. How­ev­er, if you clean your machine imme­di­ate­ly after use and dry it with a cloth it will not be the case.

Pres­sure Adjusters: This cane sug­ar man­u­al machine is equipped with two (2) pres­sure adjust­ment knobs that adjust the spring pres­sure of the top gear and allow juice effi­cient­ly thick and thin cane stalks. You should tight­en them for the thin­ners canes stalks and lose the pres­sures thick­er ones.

Using and Clean­ing: The assem­bly is not dif­fi­cult. It requires first, to slide the wheel onto the shaft and the small key of the side of the machine body. And to tight­en an adjustable span­ner to shaft nut. Attach the juic­ing tap to the juic­ing tray and it is ready to operate.

The cane stalks do not need a lot of prepa­ra­tion before juic­ing them with a man­u­al sug­ar cane machine. You do not need to cut up or peel them off but have to wash and scrap them a lit­tle to get mold and bugs off.

The man­u­al juicers machine works just by man­u­al­ly oper­at­ing with a hand crank pul­ley the wheel on the side of the body machine. This makes the rollers/gears move and squeeze out the juices from sug­ar cane stalks. If the machine stopped work­ing due to the jam­ming then reverse just swings directly.

And if you use the thin­ner canes it is bet­ter to remove the met­al cov­er­ing as it restricts the stalk move­ments. The stalks must be fresh oth­er­wise the yield will be low. For juic­ing a thick­er canes machine will strug­gle and you need to have them.

To keep your machine in good order and pre­vent rust­ing, pit­ting or mois­ture build-up just spray it with food-grade silicon.

Dimen­sions: 14” X 14.5” x 9”, weighs 72 pounds.

Yield: One cane of 5–6 foot long and 1–1.2” in diam­e­ter will make 1–1.5 cup of juice. If you pass each piece twice through the juicer it will take up to 3 cups of juice.

Sum­ma­ry: These machines are great for extract­ing the sug­ar can juice and they deliv­er a great yield, nev­er mind it is a mechan­i­cal machine. The price is more than rea­son­able and you can buy it for around $200 usu­al­ly the Chi­nese ver­sion. How­ev­er, you have to use mus­cle to hand crank the machine. It is ok if you do 1 to 5 stalks at a time, how­ev­er for more vol­ume, you bet­ter get the belt and the motor and made motorized.
