Murradoc Oil Processors
Murradoc Oil Processors initially purchased the Pegaso 500 and then upgraded in 2006 to the OMT X15 super decanter and 1.5/hr press with 4 X 700kg malaxes. Processing award winning olive oil relies on a number of aspects, quality olives, good harvesting methods and good quality processing equipment, said Dale Stelfox of Murradoc Oil Processors.
The OMT olive oil specific decanter design provided numerous benefits, including those derived from a waste water processing perspective by separating in ‘one’ pass, extractions in three separate streams - clean waste water, dry waste pomace and clean extra virgin olive oil. Further, the ‘double extraction’ decanter design demonstrated a considerable performance advantage as to the high olive oil yield extraction volume.
