About our factory
For the the olive oil fabrication we use an Italian Amenduni machine, with 8,000 kg of fruit per hour processability.
In this industrial process, the fruit undergoes a physical process that combines heat and pressure, to separate the oil from the rest of the olive.
Stages of the olive oil production:
- Reception yard
The reception yard is located in an outer area of the olive production plant.
Olives are delivered to the reception yard and then dumped into a wagon below surface level. A belt conveys olives to the second step.
- Removal of leaves and twigs and washing
Once olives are unloaded into the wagon, they are taken to the reception yard, where they will undergo three important steps: removal of twigs, removal of leaves and finally washing to remove any soil that may be adhered to the fruit.
The AMENDUNI washer is used to separate sand and dirt from olives.
This stainless steel machine has a vibrating screen with grids to push olives forward and discharge any possible residual leaves that may have remained from the previous step. Olives are then subjected to a second wash and sent to the crusher.
- Hammer crusher
Structure made of stainless steel, equipped with a driving motor and several replaceable knives to completely crush the fruits.
A system for the processing of the previously crushed olive paste, composed of vertically arranged tanks to allow for continuous operation. Each tank is equipped with a water circulation device and electronic system to control temperature.
This mechanism is controlled by an independent engine.
The volume of each tank is designed according to user’s needs.
- Extraction by decanter
The Decanter REX 100, with horizontal axis, centrifuges and finally separates liquid and solid.
6. Final separation
This is perhaps the most important machine in the oil production process.
With a vertical centrifugation mechanism, it separates what is, at the end, pure olive oil from water and solid fruit particles.
The separator is equipped with an electronic system for starting, stopping and controlling speed of the variable thickness disks that separate oil and water. This high speed rotating centrifuge is made according to the strictest international safety standards for human consumption products.
