The History
The passion for innovation has always been the driving force behind the Pieralisi Group. This is just as true today as at the outset when Adeodato Pieralisi set up his first workshop in the small town of Monsano in 1888, the start of this family-run manufacturing business.

From thepost-war period onwards, the Group’s main plant in Jesi has specialised in olive oil machinery and what was once a family-run manufacturing business became an industrial enterprise with a solid organization.

In the 1960’s, Pieralisi revolutionised traditional olive oil extraction systems, conquering domestic and international markets with the first decanter for olive-oil continuous processing. Starting in the 1970’s, Pieralisi moved into new sectors of the market.

The Group’s large experience and know-how in the olive oil sector led Pieralisi to offer centrifugal force as a rational solution to production processes in a wide range of food-processing and industrial sectors. The Group’s success was so rapid that, in just a few years, it established itself as the world’s leader company in centrifugation.

Pieralisi’s constant commitment to research and development of advanced technologies has meant that the Group is now the indisputable leader in providing avant-garde separation solutions through centrifugal force.
Great attention to the needs of a wide-ranging international customer base has led the Pieralisi Group to dedicate human resources and specific technology to the needs of each and every customer. To this aim, the Group has adopted a business organisation based on two large divisions: the Separation Solutions Division and the Olive Oil Division.

The Pieralisi Group provides solutions to all technological problems of solid-liquid and solid-liquid-liquid separation, thanks to the great experience and know-how developed over time in the most important industrial centrifuge markets.
Pieralisi decanters and vertical centrifuges with a wide variety of capacities are suitable for a vast range of application areas, such as:

Environmental Area, where the Pieralisi Group provides state-of-the-art solutions to treatment and disposal processes of sludge from municipal and industrial waste water. The Group also offers solutions for the drying of biomass and animal slurry and thermal sludge drying processes.

Chemical Area, in which Pieralisi operates in production processes involving intermediate or end chemical products and integrated recycling and recovery processes, in processes within HDPE, PVC and PP polymer production. In addition, the Group is also involved in production processes for the pharmaceutical and biotech sector, as well as in the production of ores and minerals. Moreover, Pieralisi operates in production processes for non-fossil fuels, such as biodiesel and ethanol.

Recycling Area, where the Group is involved in treatment processes for drilling mud, in the treatment and recycling of industrial fluids, in the recycling of polymers and their respective recyclables, as well as in the recycling of service water in industrial processes.

Oleo-chemical Area, in which Pieralisi operates in production processes for oleochemistry derivates and in the treatment and recovery of edible vegetable oils, excluding olive oil.

Mineral- Fuel and Lube Oils Area, where the Group offers solutions for the purification and conditioning of fuels, for the purification of lube oils, for the treatment and recovery of mineral and fuel oils, the treatment of slop-oils from refineries and lagoons, of slops from lube oils, of bilge water.

Animal-Based Products Area, in which Pieralisi operates in the treatment of by-products from the fish-processing and meat-processing industries.

Food and Beverage Area, where the Group is involved in the processing and recovery of any food or drink, from the extraction of fruit and vegetables juices, to the processing of solid foods, until the extraction of food additives and wine processing.

Vegetable and Animal Milk Products Area, in which Pieralisi is active in the purification and clarification processes of vegetable and animal milk products, in the heat treatment of milk and dairy products and in the recycling of related waste materials.

The key to Pieralisi’s success in the olive oil sector is the continual testing of innovative high-tech solutions aimed at increasing customers’ olive oil yield and quality.
This commitment dates back to Pieralisi’s introduction of the first continuous-processing decanter that revolutionised the olive oil extraction process.
