Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9961568A1] The method includes a pulp removal and kneading step to remove the pulp from and knead the olives; and a separating and extracting step to separate and extract the oil from a mixture of paste and water. The pulp removing and kneading step is performed substantially with no added water and at a controlled temperature below 35 DEG C; and the separating and extracting step is performed by mixing the paste with water substantially at the controlled temperature, and by immersing an extracting member (11) into the paste and moving the extracting member continually with respect to a scraping member (12). The apparatus has a pulp removing and kneading device (7) for removing the pulp from and kneading the olives in a first vessel (13); and a separating and extracting device (8) for separating the oil from the mixture and extracting the oil in a second vessel (47). The pulp removing and kneading device (7) has two rollers (22) for initiating breakage of the epicarp of the olives; and the paste is transferred directly from the first vessel (13) to the separating and extracting device (8), which has at least one pair of members (111, 112) for mixing the paste with water.
