If you are looking for an oil extraction machine or olive press, you need to consider an Oliomio!
Oliomio is a well-respected leader in the realm of small to medium scale olive oil production. Made in Italy, the Genuine Oliomio olive oil processing machine remains on the cutting edge of the latest technology in innovation, quality, service and value for money.
Self-contained and modular machines are available in a range of sizes. Machine capacities range from 40Kgs per hour, up to 2 Tonne per hour.
Can Oliomio machines make cold-pressed olive oil?
The term 'cold pressed' as seen on labels of many a bottle of olive oil is nowadays a redundant marketing term. Most modern olive oil plants are not 'pressed' in a traditional matt press but separated with a centrifuge.
Low temperatures are preferred during processing as excessive heat can impair the olive oil quality, however some heat is required for efficient extraction. Some reference 27°C as a limit, however the exact temperature that defines excessive heat is debated by many. It is generally accepted that as long as the heat is not enough to cause changes in the olive oil, it can be deemed as 'cold pressed'. Most Oliomio machines include temperature sensors (and in larger machines thermostats) to monitor and control paste temperature for the most efficient extraction while maintaining oil quality.
Can Oliomio machines make green olive oil?
The colour of your olive oil will be determined by the colour of the fruit added to the machine, the colour is affected by the fruit's maturity at harvest time. If you are putting green olives into an Oliomio, green oil will come out. (If leaves are processed with the fruit, the chlorophyll can sometimes also add green colour to the oil)
Can Oliomio machines produce extra virgin Olive Oil.
Yes, Oliomio machines are excellent at maintaining oil quality. Machines from the Sintesi and Cultivar series even include features like vacuum malaxers for extra quality control. Don’t forget: quality machinery is just one key factor in producing Extra Virgin olive oil, don't neglect the other key factors: quality fruit, minimal time between harvest and processing and proper storage of the olive oil after processing.
Can Oliomio machines make award winning olive oil?
Most definitely, The Olive Centre is proud to have so many Oliomio owners each year winning awards for their Extra Virgin Olive oil processed on their Oliomio machines. See articles: 2013 Best oil from an Oliomio and2012: multiple awards The key to making EVOO is stringent quality control.
Why is an Oliomio olive oil machine better than traditional matt olive press?
Traditional matt presses use stone crushing mills and various types of matts which can be difficult to clean and over time can absorb old fruit residues, leading to flavor defects in your oil.
Oliomio machines are made of quality stainless steel, which does not absorb aromas or fruit residues, and is much easier to clean.
Oliomios use modern centrifuge technology to separate oil from waste and water, for more consistent, higher quality results, whereas traditional matt presses must still separate the resulting oil by settling alone - a less efficient method which keeps the oil in contact with water and pomace, affecting oil quality.
Oliomio machines are often more compact, and more portable than most traditional matt presses.
What kind of backup do you get with an Oliomio machine? Oliomio olive oil machines generally come with minimum one year warranty. The Olive Centre has a technician based in Australia who can provide technical services for training, servicing and repairs. The Olive Centre supplies most Oliomio machines with installation and training to help you make the most out of your Oliomio olive processor.
