Details revealed:

During olive oil production, there is inevitably a waste water produced which has black color and lot of suspended solids. When using an Amkco separator we get rid of the suspended solids and, in addition, fresh olive paste can be produced.

Direct benefits

  • Removal of suspended solids makes effluent handling much easier
  • up to 15% of olive paste (containing 8-10% olive oil) can be directed to pomace
  • In evaporation process we have no fouling or precipitation
  • Water can be recycled in decanter feed
  • Water can be used for watering olive plants

Black water filtration

We apply continuous de-watering of olive oil pomace with Amkco separators and the results are:

Direct benefits:

  • Kernel fraction also removed in top-deck
  • pomace mass reduction by 15-25% (kernel plus water fractions).
  • The pomace at the end is close to 3-phase pomace
  • Installed power < 2kW !
  • Easily adjust de-watering capacity !
