oliveCEPT® is a machine and technology that integrates into the traditional olive oil processing line to increase EVOO extraction and quality.
The pre-treatment of olive paste is based on PEF (pulsed electric fields). OptiCept has refined and developed the technology to extreme efficiency. The patented CEPT® platform is a high voltage generator combined with treatment chambers.
The basic principle of the technology is the application of short square wave pulses of high voltage that generate very high electric fields. Due to the short pulses of microsecond magnitude, excessive heating and undesirable electrolytic reactions are minimized.
The integration of oliveCEPT® is made in the initial stage of the process, right after the crusher, before malaxation, and has a very small footprint.
The system consists of a PEF generator and a treatment chamber. The connection to the oliveCEPT® is done via stainless steel, food-grade fittings.
