Olive harvest collection forms for thousands of years virtually unchanged since centuries are used throughout the manual collection methods or shrug. Also, the place has fallen olives reaping method. Harvesting is carried out between March and November.
However, the general method is clean and jerk. Manual collection, milk or carding method, the gathering place of the roller or brush is used. Today, the olive harvest in the machine (shaking and fruits collection with absorbent equipment in place) are used. In practice, the most labor-intensive method is to collect manually. 9-10 kilograms of olives per hour maximum, this method of collection, the fruit provides oil to produce the best sound quality.
In olive oil culture, another tradition changed since thousands of years is the method of removing oil from olives. This is due to the oil, to be obtained by the cold pressing of the olives and can be eaten without any need chemical processing. That's why, with olive production methods are still common in the Middle East today, there is no difference between the method of obtaining olive oil about 6 thousand years ago: olives are crushed into pulp. Then the dough is extruded or extruded. At the end of the oil, the juice of the olive fruit (black water) are separated. At the beginning of the 19th century with the development of technology was passed to hydraulic press machine. Today, as well as hydraulic press machine, no pressure application to obtain the olive paste allowing centrifugal force machines are also used olive oil. Of these, the most common of the "continuous system" is.
Continuous system, called a fully automated system. First divided according to types of olives. Funnel cleared of leaves, olives with pits spilled from the machine system is broken and crushed in the hammer (machine, the crumbling three thousand revolutions per core). Here the dough, kneading after mixing is given water, fruit juice and pulp is separated. Musts from oil and blackwater sorted, taken to the oil filter tanks, tank terminal residues extracted and left to rest. Here the natural oil jug filled with cans and bottles. the remaining oil from the pomace used to re-milled soap. It called the Pre and pulp pellet fuel is used as fuel.
