Whether for juice or wine production: grapes must be harvested with care, since any impact will lead to bruising. The Craemer Group, a pioneer in plastics processing, offers food-safe and extremely sturdy collection containers that permit hygienic and careful harvesting of grapes. Particularly suitable: the CB3 High and SB3 plastic pallet boxes.
During all steps of grape harvesting, from picking to collecting, emptying into pallet boxes and transport to the place of processing, the delicate fruit needs to be protected from pressure. Two Craemer pallet boxes made of high-quality polyethylene (PE) in industrial size (1200 x 1000 mm) are ideal for this purpose: CB3 High with an extra-large volume, and SB3 with closed or perforated walls. Both boxes are sturdily constructed and moulded in one piece. Therefore, they are very resistant and hard-wearing. With nine feet (optional), they stand securely even on uneven ground or slopes.
The CB3 High holds around 1000 litres
The CB3 High pallet box is 1140 millimetres high and has a capacity of around 1000 litres. Thanks to its closed walls, even the juice of damaged grapes is not lost. As with the SB3 box, a drainage hole allows both juice and water to drain away when the box is cleaned, while the sturdy ribbed lower deck ensures that the bottom of the box is very stable. The CB3 High box weighs either 46 or 49 kg, depending on the selected variant.
The SB3: closed or perforated version
The closed version of the SB3 pallet box also catches the juice of damaged grapes. The perforated version, on the other hand, has rounded slots on the inside to protect the delicate bunches (undoubtedly very useful for winegrowers). It is 790 millimetres high, has a capacity of 610 litres and a payload of 700 kilograms. Depending on the version, it weighs either 39 or 42.5 kilograms.
Both PE pallet boxes are neutral in odour and taste, resistant to mould and bacteria, shatter-proof and extremely impact and shock resistant. The seamless design and smooth inner walls protect the grapes during harvest, transport and storage, and allow for easy emptying, cleaning and drying. The boxes are temperature-resistant from -30 to +40 degrees Celsius (up to +90 degrees during short periods) and are available with two open drain port holes (1” and 2” in diameter). In addition to the CB3 High and SB3 pallet boxes, Craemer offers a wide portfolio of plastic pallets, storage and transport containers. Also ideal for grape harvesting: the HB3 hygiene box and the ET box.
