Optional Part - this is the Soft Fibre/Fruit Housing Screen which has larger holes than the standard screen that comes with the machine and is suitable for the Angel Juicers (5500, 7500 & 8500). This screen is an optional extra/accessory.
This screen is particularly suitable for more "sloppy" fruits such as pineapple, watermelon, tomatoes, strawberries, bananas and grapes. It is sometimes called the "Coarse Screen".
This part comes with a silicon ring which is required for all Angels made from February 2011. This rings sits between the motor housing and the screen to minimise the leaking of juice. This ring is also available separately as an optional accessory. It also fits with the standard juicing screen.

This coarser screen might be preferable for soft food such as strawberries, watermelon, blueberries, raspberries, bananas and foamy food such as pineapple. Pineapple, due to the high enzyme (Pinease) extracted, tends to foam. You can still juice it by the regular screen, but may be slower to juice due to the foam. You may like to purchase the food pusher with ring that helps pushes the foam down.
The coarse screen maybe more desirable to make butter from nuts and seeds but always soak them for 12 to 24 hours to avoid damage to the screen. You can still use the standard screen to make butter as well due to the power of the gears action being able to push the large oil particles through the fine standard screen. This screen will fit the 5500, 7500 & 8500 Angel juicers. If you'd like a screen for grinding seeds and nuts, then you need the grinding screen/housing instead.
This coarse screen is great for making butters. Coconut butter from coconut white pulp is great for your health as it contains essential fatty acids and natural antibiotics. Try adding the coconut water and pulp to the juice and find the coconut butter with floating white chunks on the top of the juice. You may need to limit the amount to acquire the taste as one coconut produces large amount of the butter. Coconut butter will become solid a low temperature.
When using raw seeds and nuts, soak them for 12 to 24 hours in water with a drop of baking powder. Once the seeds or nuts are soft, you can juice them and collect the butter around the screen as well. If you want the pulp mix with it, you can do that as well. Try taste-testing them with and without mixing with the pulp.
This coarse filter with the special wooden food pusher with a ring on its end is good for juicing Pineapple. Pineapple foams a lot and it is good to juice pineapple with other food to ease the pushing of the dry pulp. After the juicing is complete, if desired, use the standard screen and pour in the collected juice to eliminate the pulp and collect pure juice for faster absorption. Certainly, you can use the standard screen to juice Pineapple, but due to the foaming action of Pineapple, it is slower to feed the pineapple into the machine.
