Increase profits with rapid, reliable olive paste and pomace analysis

Easy-to-use olive analyser for maximum oil extraction and increased profits. Simply place the sample in the dish, press start and wait 10 seconds for results.

Achieve maximum yield from your harvest with the NEW QuikTest-Olive.

Failing to extract maximum oil yield from olive pomace leads to significant waste and loss in profits. With the first of its kind QuikTest-Olive analyser you can quickly and accurately measure residual moisture & oil without the use of harsh chemicals or complicated instrumentation.

With the quality and thus price of the olive oil declining in each step of the extraction process, it is important to maximize the efficiency of the extraction at each stage with accurate olive anlaysis. The QuikTest-Olive analyzer produces precise moisture, oil and oil on a dry weight basis measurments in 10 seconds for instant feedback for both initial olive raw material and in-process parameters.

Easy to Use

Simple interface and straightforward operation makes it easy for virtually anyone to make reliable measurements with little to no training.

Quick to Start Up

Delivered pre-calibrated, you can start testing samples faster. Simply power up the QuikTest-Olive, adjust the settings for your specific olive variety and start testing.

Rugged & Reliable

Sturdy encolure allows the QuikTest-Olive to be used in the mill near the centrifuge or press or in the lab depending on the mill's needs.

A new automatically rotating olive cup samples a larger surface area, resulting in more accurate and repeatable measurements. 

 

Features

The QuikTest-Olive is a rugged polycarbonate analyzer built for busy olive mills. Featuring a large 5.7” touchscreen display and a compact footprint, it is easy to set up and start using virtually anywhere in the mill.

  • High accuracy and repeatability
  • Unaffected by relative humidity, changes in product temperature, ambient light and high ambient temperature 
  • Rotating olive sample cup produces rapid, accurate results

QuikTest Olive Analyzer

Simple, easy-to-use moisture & oil analyzer for maximum oil extraction and increased profits.

Near Infrared Measurements – How Do They Work?

Near Infrared (NIR) measurements are based on specific absorption bands in the electromagnetic spectrum between 800 and 2500 nanometers (nm).  This region is just above the visible light region of 400 - 700 nm.  Electromagnetic waves in the region have the best combination of energy, sensitivity and absorbtion to be useful for quantitative measurments of solid materials. 

While full spectrum analyzers may utilize the entire spectrum and multivariate mathematical treatments such as Principal Component Regression (PCR), Partial Least Squares (PLS) or neural networks, photometers use “slices” of the spectrum that correspond to specific molecular overtones and associated vibrational absorptions.

NIR Region of Electromagnetic Spectrum

Photometers utilize narrow band pass interference filters that have a specified band width typically 50 nm wide, though the band width is sometimes application dependent.  The NIR has broad bands as opposed to the sharp peaks in the Infrared region.  Common bonds are O-H (1940 and 1420 nm) in water, C-H (2340 nm) in organics and oils and N-H in proteins.  The NIR sensors are extremely sensitive instruments that are optimized to measure the absorbancies of samples at these specific wavelength regions.  The quantity of the constituent to be measured us proportional to the absorbance level at these specific wavelengths.

NIR Absorbances of Chemical Groups

NIR Photometers

Shining light at these wavelengths causes the corresponding chemical bond to vibrate and absorb energy.  Think of different sections of a stadium crowd called upon to shout and jump when their section is highlighted on the stadium Jumbotron.
