Up to now, the only affordable juicers available for commercial use have been high-speed centrifugal models. While they are fast, they are also loud, inefficient, unable to juice greens, and introduce oxidation and heat to juice. The Sana 909 efficiently makes cold pressed juice at only 60 rpm, keeping the taste and nutrition intact while giving far more yield and flexibility.
Unlike centrifugal juicers which can exceed 100 decibels, the 60-rpm operation of the Horeca juicer is very quiet. It’s the first thing you notice when you turn it on. Also, because auger-driven juicers extract more juice from fruits and vegetables than centrifugal models, the Sana 909 can significantly save money by requiring less produce per liter of juice. Because it operates at a much lower rpm, the juice it produces is of far higher quality than from a centrifugal juicer. There is less pulp, the taste is sweeter, and the consistency is much smoother with almost no foam. And cold-press juicing means that juice can be stored without oxidation up to 48 hours while remaining fresh.
Centrifugal juicers can't handle greens well, producing very little yield. The Sana 909 is very versatile and can juice just about any fruit or vegetable. Apples, pears, citrus, berries, tropical fruits, root vegetables and leafy vegetables are all no problem for this juicer. As with any juicer, using the freshest produce will give the best results. One unique feature of this juicer is the juice cap, which acts as a tap and can be closed during juicing. This allows you to mix different types of produce together in the juicer, or even add other ingredients such as milk, yogurt, or alcoholic beverages. The juice cap has another benefit: between juicing different fruits (or mixing drinks), you can add water to the juicer and let it run for a few moments, and then open the cap to drain it. Because the 909 has rubber cleaning blades that continuously clean the strainer, this cleans out the juicer quickly and easily.
A major requirement of juice bars and restaurants is to be able to make a lot of juice quickly. Despite operating at only 60 rpm, the Sana 909 produces a good volume of juice in a short amount of time. Because it has an extra-large feeding tube (88 mm), cutting and preparing of produce is minimized. It can even take smaller varieties of apples whole without any preparation. In addition to being able to be quickly rinsed between juicing, when it needs to be cleaned the process is fast and simple. There are just a few parts that are easily removed from the unit and only need to be rinsed under running water. The only part that requires any cleaning is the juicing screen, which is quickly scrubbed under running water with the included cleaning brush.
The Sana Horeca 909 ships with two complete juicing head assemblies. This allows you to switch between two different juices without any cleaning. For example, you can have one juicing head dedicated for leafy greens, and the second for a carrot/apple combination. This really increases the versatility of this juicer. And since the commercial motor is rated for 24-hours continuous use, there is no down time needed.
With three additional screens (not included), you can do even more with the Sana Horeca. The homogenizing screen crushes ingredients together without extraction, which is perfect for things like fresh peanut butter, ice creams and sorbets, and sauces. The smoothie screen extracts juice but doesn't eject the pulp. It's great for making fruit smoothies, like a strawberry smoothie with almond milk. The coarse screen is similar to the included fine juicing screen, but has larger holes so it is helpful for softer or pulpier produce like pineapple or berries.
