BALDER 10 ton/h capacity of EVOO at the best quality with olivCEPT®

The oliveCEPT® deploys a pre-treatment to olive paste in extra virgin olive oil production (EVOO) that improves both the quality of the product and increases extracted EVOO yield.

The integration of oliveCEPT® in the initial stage of the process, right after the crusher, offers several advantages when it comes to extraction yield and quality of the final product and we have proven reliable results in these aspects.

The recently launched BALDER is the most powerful machine yet with a capacity to treat 10 t/h.

A complete system of modular design, built with a stainless steel frame with product wetted parts in hygienic design all with food-grade components. The system consists of the new powerful PEF generator – CEPT v7 supervised by controlCEPT and the booster unit module with all control and safety devices mounted on it including pressure and temperature sensors as well as flowmeter and conductivity indicators.

Increased EVOO yield

The oliveCEPT® offers increased extraction of 5% to 15% yield with the same amount of raw material. Secured extraction volume and improved oil yield.

Improved Quality

Increase of polyphenols and other quality compounds. Improved taste, color and nutrition. Reduced oxidation and better oil stability.

Better Efficiency

Reduced operational cost and improved productivity. Reduced malaxation volume – less malaxers. Increased production volume during the same time.
