EVO Filter

DEPTH FILTRATION FOR A QUALITY EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

Logo AEB Engineering

EVO FILTER is the result and the achievement of an excellence project in filtration, dedicated in particular to extra virgin olive oil and for all uses where depth filtration is normally used especially with filter sheets (cartons).

THE ADVANTAGES OF MODULE FILTRATION WITH DIFFERENTIATED PERMEABILITY

EVO Filter
  1. Total filtration yields on average at least 3-5 times higher than those achievable with a single stage, resulting in considerable savings;
  2. The filtration process takes place completely with no contact with air;
  3. Housing unloading is extremely easy thanks to the panel allowing to manage the oil thrust with nitrogen gas;
  4. Possibility of filtration even at very low flow rates;
  5. Significant time and effort savings in filter management;
  6. Reduced filtration costs.

A COMPLETE RANGE

Different models of EVO Filter are available. Each model is combined with specific lenticular modules and is characterized by a well-defined filtering surface.

THE AREAS OF APPLICATION OF THE EVO FILTER

  • SECTOR

    Oil mill

     

    MODE

    - Directly downstream of the separator by synchronizing the pump speed with the flow rate of the separator.
    - Filtering batches of oil from crushing and stored for a few hours in the tank.
    - Filtering oil stored for a long time in the most appropriate mode (in series, parallel, etc.).

     

  • SECTOR

    Industrial oil companies

     

    MODE

    In finishing after press filters or flood bell filters of considerable size (30-100 m2).

  • SECTOR

    Other industries

     

    TYPE OF COMPANIES

    Pharmaceutical companies or companies processing by-products of the food industry for use by the pharmaceutical industry.

    In the food and beverage industry in general, where it is possible (oenology, breweries, essential oils, etc.).

WHY TO USE EVO FILTER?

Using EVO FILTER means filter in complete comfort, for several reasons:

 

  • High versatility, because, by properly managing the dedicated manual valves, it is possible to filter with a single housing; with both housings in series (direct flow from first to second); in parallel, i.e. by adding the filtering surface of the modules contained in the two housings
  •  
  • Possibility of recover and transfer the oil thanks to the recovery & cleaning section
  •  
  • Easy monitoring of the quality of filtration through the specula (visual evaluation of the clarity of the filtrate)
  •  
  • Cleaning in maximum comfort by using a washing solution made by water and 2% Nerlik Liquid

THE CONVENTION BETWEEN AEB AND CNR-IBE IN-DEPTH STUDIES ON THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE EVO FILTER AND THE QUALITY OF THE OIL

Our Group has entered into an agreement with CNR-IBE (Institute for Bioeconomics) for applied research activities in order to carry out, during the olive oil campaign 2019-2020, tests to verify and validate the effectiveness of the EVO FILTER in improving the quality characteristics of extra virgin olive oils resulting from the immediate filtration at the end of the pressing operations.

 

The study, which covers an entire year, has shown that the oil filtered with EVO FILTER, has maintained its characteristics of excellence as evidenced by the analysis below.

SENSORIAL ANALYSIS – VISUAL INSPECTION (END OF MAY 2020)

EVO Filter May 2019
EVO Filter May 2019

UNFILTERED oil two months after extraction: the oil has clear defects linked to the hints of mould and winy, an unmistakable sign of fermentation phenomena occurred in the oil during storage, the main aromatic notes are very attenuated.

 

FILTERED oil two months after extraction: the oil is still characterized by a green, fresh and very intense fruity, with distinct notes of cut grass and artichoke. Balanced the strong notes of bitter and spicy. Excellent oil, very fine and elegant, it shows a weak astringency.
