This bench top or portable system comprising
a hammer mill, malaxer and centrifuge produces oil sample from small
batchers of olives.
Up to 800 grams of raw
olives are fed into the hammer mill hopper and milled into a pomace. The
pomace and associated canister are then transferred to the dual
water-bath heated malaxer for mixing. The canister is then transferred
to the centrifuge and spun to release the oil. The oil is drawn from the
outlet closure in the canister, for measuring, testing and tasting.
