The nutritional properties of olive oil can be attributed to its oleic acid and phenolic compounds content, acting as natural oxidants to prevent human diseases. In particular, hydroxytyrosol has an anti-inflammatory action similar to omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil. The olive oil production was conducted by two extraction procedures: first, a two-phase extraction giving extra-virgin olive oil and humid pomace, second, a three-phase working process of humid pomace, obtaining another minimum quantity of extra-virgin olive oil, ‘dry’ pomace devoid of polyphenols, and mill wastewaters rich in anti-oxidant compounds. The aim of this processing was to employ water to extract the highest concentration of polyphenols from humid pomace and convey them in oil mill wastewaters for extraction. Processed olives were 37,200 kg, pomace deprived of polyphenols was equal to 20,400 kg and processing was performed with 500 kg of olives per hour. This method offers advantages of using cheap equipment and technical simplicity.
Industrial Screw Conveyors: Design and Use
Industrial screw conveyors are used by many industries such as water treatment plants, food and chemical processors, biofuel, agricultural, wood pulp, and more. They are used to efficiently convey materials, frequently to or from hoppers and bins. Thermal screw conveyors are also extremely useful in many industries. The ability to heat or chill the conveyed material can bring big improvement for processing operations. Mixing, metering, and mobility are other features that can be designed into the auger conveyor...

Protective coatings for industrial fans
Industrial fans Large fans are commonly used to provide significant quantities of air needed for operating industrial processes. Coal and lignite fired power plants, cement, metal or woodchip manufacturing are just a few examples of industries that require homogeneous and reliable airflows. When particles are present in the air stream, they relentlessly wearout the fan surfaces. This wear is present both when they are very fine, for example when conveying fumes, as well as when large particulate matter such as...
