Revolutionary PEF Technology by Pulsemaster Boosts Olive Oil Production and Quality

In a groundbreaking advancement for the olive oil industry, Pulsemaster has unveiled an innovative Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) system, revolutionizing olive oil processing. This state-of-the-art technology, capable of handling up to 10 US tons/h (9,000 kg/h), promises to dramatically enhance the efficiency and quality of cold-pressed olive oil.

A New Era in Olive Oil Processing

The Pulsemaster PEF system represents a significant leap forward in olive oil extraction. It’s a game-changer that brings a new dimension to the traditional process, employing a non-thermal, low-energy method that complements the crucial crushing step. By forming pores in the cell membranes of olives, it aims to permeate these membranes, leading to enhanced cell disruption. The result? A marked increase in yield and aroma quality from the very first day of storage.

Pulsed electric field PEF – the potential in food processing

  • PEF

Pulsed Electric Field (PEF) processing is a well-known non-thermal food preservation technique, but it can also be used to enhance product quality and food production processes.

The terms pulsed electric field processing and electroporation both describe the same technique. PEF induces poration of cell membranes, hence the term ‘electroporation’. Another term used in this context is ‘permeabilization’. PEF technology can make the cell membranes of microorganisms, plant, or animal tissue permeable. This electroporation process is suitable for a broad range of food processes and bioprocesses, utilizing low energy levels.

Electroporation: Unlocking Remarkable Potential

  • PEF

Electroporation is a fascinating natural phenomenon with immense potential. The video below, supported by the European COST project, illuminates the reasons behind its significance.

Increased Membrane Permeability

Electroporation leads to increased cell membrane permeability through high voltage electric pulses. This cutting-edge technology enables molecules to either enter or exit the cell, a process not typically feasible for numerous significant molecules under normal conditions.
