Taking decanters in olive processing to a higher level in yield....

Alfa Laval's new generation of Y-series decanter centrifuges set a new industry standard for cost vs. performance in the olive oil chain. Simple, yet innovative, the Y-series decanters are a leap into the future in terms of performance and reliability. Furthermore the strong visual appeal is a good example of modern industrial design. After introducing the decanter for continuous olive processing several decades ago and seeing the technology being widely accepted, Alfa Laval went on to further develop the 2- and 3-phase decanters for the olive oil industry. Machines of this type are installed and working in olive oil mills in many parts of the world today. The compact, efficient decanters are optimized for olive oil applications that include clarification, extraction, dewatering and classification on first and second extraction (the re-milling process). A new high for 2-phase decanter performance... With the new generation of Y-series decanters, Alfa Laval has again taken decanter performance to a new level. The Y-series decanters transport and treat up to 360 tons a day of olive paste, and at the same time provide a lower concentration of residual oil in the husk. The Y-series' impressive performance is due to machine design improvements based on Alfa Laval's long experience of fluid dynamics and separation technology. Treating high olive paste volumes at high separation efficiency demands constant high torque and effective control of the process. The Y-series decanters provide both from zero to maximum throughput. The drive system in the Y-series allows the bowl speed and the conveyor speed to be varied independently, providing full operational flexibility. The control module of the Y-series is uniquely configured for decanter operation. ...a new low for olive processing costs The design features of the Y-series reflect Alfa Laval's determination to reduce the costs olive extraction for its customers. An enhanced wear protection package for the Y-series ensures reduced maintenance costs and longer service intervals. As the maintenance costs are low and only require a small amount of maintenance, the Y-series will continue working reliably throughout its long lifecycle. When servicing is required, wear parts can be replaced easily and simply....
