Fast, accurate analysis is critical for olive oil manufacturers to optimize their process and insure quality. Rapid at-line analysis provides real-time data for oil content and quality, and allows for adjustment of the process to minimize the oil left in the pomace. Near Infrared (NIR) analysis is a proven technique applicable to every step in the Olive processing process including:
- Incoming olive paste analysis for calculating payment to farmers
- Monitoring of moisture and oil content in olive pomace to optimize the extraction process
- Minimize residual oil in pomace to reduce waste
- Analyze extracted oil for acidity and other quality parameters
The Unity Olive Analyzer is fast, allowing for 100% measurement of in-process paste and pomace analysis. This speed, combined with guaranteed accuracy, allows for complete control of the extraction process, maximizing profits and providing fast payback.
Easy to Use
The Unity Olive Analyzer is based on the SpectraStar™, a state of the art stand-alone NIR analyzer optimized for the analysis of ground or partially ground natural products. The SpectraStar is calibrated to NIST traceable reference standard materials. The Unity Scientific SpectraStar drawer sampling system is simple to use yet handles a variety of sampling options for various sample types including olive paste and oil.
The Unity Olive Analyzer is available in two models: a basic model designed for the analysis of olive paste and pomace and a deluxe version that adds the capability to analyze the crude oil from extraction.
Both Unity Olive Analyzers are powered by custom Unity calibrations specific to the olive processing industry. Unity Olive processing calibrations for paste and pomace are included with the Unity Olive Analyzer. These calibrations contain calibrations for oil content and moisture to provide immediate feedback for oil payment to suppliers as well as plant managers for optimizing the oil extraction. The Olive Analyzer Deluxe also includes sample acessories and a calibration for olive oil and delivers acidity, FFA, peroxide value and other oil quality data.
The Unity Olive Analyzers will provide valuable analytical input to your process, increasing yield and maximizing profits.
