Quality Fruit Delivered Non-Stop with the optional Braud Destemmer
Now available with side conveyor, the Braud 9000X Series can be fitted with a SOCMA patented destemmer. Add the optional destemmer to your Braud 9090X high-yield harvester and you will maximize fruit quality while maintaining high yields and harvesting capacity. Anadvanced mesh and finger system eliminates up to 99.56% of harvest impurities, or MOG (material other than grapes) including rachis, stalks, leaves other debris. By removing MOG while you harvest, you not only improve your efficiency, you help eliminate the herbaceous taste that can be transferred to the grapes during transport to the winery. For the two-hopper 9090X model, the optional destemmer is fitted on the top of each hopper and does not compromise hopper capacity for optimum productivity. The destemmer can handle high yields while providing outstanding harvest quality and minimal grape damage. Setting up the destemmer has been improved, with easier settings, to fine tune the destemming process resulting in best in class fruit destemming, fruit quality, integrity, and capacity.
Outstanding impurity elimination
The destemmer eliminates harvest impurities such as stalks, leaves and all material other than grapes (MOG). A dedicated MOG transfer auger discharges this material to the ground or to the picking head for recycling and re-destemming.
Gain in quality, gain in productivity
The destemmer is positioned on the machine in a way that does not compromise the hopper capacity. It has a high throughput for optimum productivity, that can handle an astonishing destemming throughput up to 25 tons of grape per hour. Two grape level sensors advise the driver when the hopper level reaches 75% full, to prepare unloading logistics, and warns the operator when the hopper is 100% filled.
Destemming made easy
A specially designed crop distributor for 9090X twin hopper, combined with two infrared level sensors, allows the hopper to be filled completely and automatically, particularly in nondestemming mode. Combined with electrically actuated flaps at the front of destemmers, it enables the driver to switch from destemming to non-destemming from the cab. This feature is especially useful for operators working more than 30% of the time in non-destemming mode.
In heavy canopy conditions, or conditions that may cause the shaking system to detach canes or branches, the cane removal system removes obstructions to avoid blockages to the Noria buckets, conveyors, fans, etc.
Pre-sort system improves air flow
For even better cleaning capacity, the 9090X two-hopper model features a pre-sorting system consisting of two rollers positioned at the end of the receiving conveyors. The rollers direct single berries that don’t need destemming directly onto the cross conveyor. This increases air flow to the top fan to help lift and remove leaves from the remainder of the harvested fruit.
High-performance grape cleaning
Four cleaning fans—two upper fans and two lower fans—are standard equipment and provide optimal performance in heavy canopy conditions. Using four fans leads to the removal of more leaves compared to using two top fans alone. The top fans are 25 inches in diameter for more air flow at lower RPMs for less juicing in high tonnage conditions. Top fan exhaust tubes are directed to the top rear of the harvester for less noise, dust, and residue. The Braud 9090X delivers better productivity and a cleaner product sample.
Simplified settings, better destemming
Setting up the Braud 9000 Series destemmer is simple and straightforward. The distance between the rotors and mesh can be adjusted using the Noria adjustment lever to fine tune the destemming quality and performance to make the most of your harvest. The mesh tension adjustment has been revised with a tool free system. Advanced materials, sealed bearings and a smoother conveyor path make the New Holland destemmer reliable — saving you time and money.
