Storyboard Text

  • Oranges are harvested from large groves.When the mature fruit is ready to pick, a crew of pickers is sent in to pull the fruit off the trees.
  • The oranges are generally shipped via truck to juice extraction facilities, where they are unloaded by a gravity feed onto a conveyor belt that transports the fruit to a storage bin.
  • The fruit must be inspected and graded before itcan be used. Graders remove bad fruit as it passes over the rollers and the remaining quality pieces are automatically segregated by size prior to extraction.
  • Proper juice extraction is important to optimize the efficiency of the juice production process as well as the quality of thefinished drink.
  • The fruits are sliced as they pass by a stationary knife and the halves are then picked up by rubber suction cups and moved against plastic serrated reamers. The rotating reamers express the juice as the orange halves travel around the conveyor line. 

  • The extracted juice is filtered through a stainless steel screen before it is ready for the next stage. The juice can be chilled or concentrated if it is intended for a reconstituted beverage.
