Armbruster Rotovib Key Features & Benefits

Rotovib’s robust, easy to maintain design is built with simplicity and longevity in mind:

  • A special 3-D stainless steel design makes the Armbruster extremely easy to clean.
  • Independent Variable Frequency Drives for the Pin Shaft Speed, Vibrating level and each individual RollerSorter gives the operator the ability to fine tune and adjust the machine to varietal and vineyard variables.
  • These adjustments can be made during operation or prior to receiving different varietals and vineyard sources.
  • The Single Rollersorter option allows the winery to reduce the overall MOG level in the destemmed product.
  • The Double Rollersorter option provides an additional level of sorting capability to remove raisins, seeds, and small MOG. The result is extremely clean destemmed fruit.

are saying

We like the Rotovib because it is so gentle for destemming, does a good job at removing materials other than grapes, and has many settings to adjust the destemming to each varietal."

I’ve built a strong relationship with Scott Labs over the years. From the expert sales team to the best after sale support, Scott was the easy choice for me when upgrading my destemmer. The Armbruster Rotovib 20 with roller sorter and crushing rollers has increased the speed, efficiency and quality of our thruput on the crushpad. It’s quickly become a valuable tool for us during harvest.”
