Olive growers and processors achieve highest yield and oil quality by testing with the SpectraAlyzer OLIVE.
ALL IN ONE
The SpectraAlyzer OLIVE analytical solution presents the analytical results of all major quality parameters in Olives, Olive press cake and Olive oil within 45 seconds and is easy to use. Additional analysis of olive tree leaves and soil is possible for precision farming. So, the SpectraAlyzer OLIVE can be regarded really as a master in all categories.
The true multi-component analysis determines moisture, oil, acidity and other parameters all at once with correlations very close to manual methods.
The modular design of the SpectraAlyzer OLIVE system adapts to all enterprise sizes: from smaller olive growers, cooperatives, olive mills (oil extraction) to contract laboratories and traders. Different sample cups enable the analysis of all olive related sample types. Even macro and micronutrients can be analysed in olive tree leaves and the corresponding soil.
With the SpectraAlyzer OLIVE a single multi component test can be run in less then a minute including sample preparation.
The SpectraAlyzer OLIVE is an all-in-one instrument, where connected intelligent accessories are controlled with the integrated instruments processor. The analytical performance is independent of the sample temperature, so that even warm or cold process samples can be analysed as is.
The SpectraAlyzer OLIVE saves all data on an integrated SQL database. Connected to the companies LAN or the internet the integrated web server enables the data access and instrument control from virtually everywhere – anytime. Fit for LIMS, IoT and Industry 4.0!
Olive quality check
Moisture, oil and acidity content in delivered olives is analysed. Oil and acidity concentration is used as basis for the payment to the farmer.
Quality check before crushing
During or after crushing moisture and oil concentration is checked for mill extraction optimisation.
Centrifugation / Decanter
Residual oil (dry and fat based) and moisture concentration is analysed to optimise the decantation process and adjust the malaxation. The extraktion yield is calculated.
The final oil quality is controlled by determining the moisture, acidity, peroxide no, sterols and other side parameters.
Economical benefits and amortization
Case study to illustrate increased proﬁ tability using the SpectraAlyzer 2.0 OLIVE with the improvement of oil extraction from the olive pomace.
