All inox oil resting tanks are produced as conical bottom and includes manhole cover, glass level indicator, sampling tap and gas entrance.

Storage Tanks

Storage tanks protect the quality criteria of the olive oil and enable them to be maintained before filling and packing olive oil. Besides, it enables olive oils obtained from different olive types or olive oils obtained from the same olive type but has different quality criteria, to be categorized.

Storage tanks are produced in two types: cone bottom and a flat bottom. Cone bottom tanks keep fine particles of olive flesh depositing toward the bottom during the storage process of the olive oil. Flat bottom tanks, on the other hand, are preferred if the olive oil has passed through the extra filter and is of the desired clarity.

 

Equipment

Storage tanks are manufactured in standard equipment in accordance with boutique olive oil production. All materials are selected in accordance with the Food Charter. Nitrogen gas that can contact with foodstuff is compressed into the tank, thus contact of the olive oil with the air is prevented and its quality is maintained.

Inlet-outlet hoses and camlock materials connected to the tank are included in the tank. Tank installation is applied to the production area in a fixed state, with a special project upon request of the customer. Besides, visual and taste tests of the olive oil are performed from the sampling tap on the tank.



Cone Bottom Filtration Tanks

Decanter provides olive oil by separating solid and liquid. Olive oil coming out of the decanter contains a certain amount of wastewater and large particles of olive flesh. After this stage, filtrating the olive oil does not provide efficiency in terms of the filtration process.

The filtration tank maintains the olive oil transferred from the decanter within a certain temperature range, enabling undesired wastewater and large particles of olive flesh in the olive oil to deposit toward the bottom of the tank. Wastewater and large particles of olive oil deposited at the bottom of the tank are discharged from the bottom of the tank by means of the discharge valve. Since the olive oil in the filtration tank contains only fine particles, it might be optionally re-filtered or directly sent to the storage tank to be prepared for consumption.

 

Operation Details

 

Cone bottom filtration tanks are manufactured with double walls. The wall surrounding the external surface of the tank is filled with water, and by means of a resistance and circulation pump, hot water is circulated around the tank. The second wall of the tank is the section, where there is olive oil. In this section, the temperature to store the olive oil is determined by means of a digital thermostat connected to the heat probe. The heat value determined is set not to exceed 27 degrees. The system activates the hot water circulation based on the set value of the olive oil and stops the hot water circulation when the targeted heat value is reached.

It is sufficient to operate the filtration tank for an average of 12 hours. 30-degree hidden cone bottom placed at the bottom of the tank is used as an outlet for waste water and paste. Water for the heating installation is filled to the water filling inlet located on the tank. Besides, visual and taste tests of the olive oil are performed from the sampling tap on the tank.
