At Il Fiorello we use a state-of-the-art continuous system mill produced to our specification by Gruppo Pieralisi, the leading producer of olive milling equipment in the world. Our mill is the most modern and high technology milling machine in North America, utilizing two large centrifuges in series to separate the oil from the olive paste.
With this machine we are able to mill 6000 lbs (3 tons) an hour at steady state operation. The computer control monitors all aspects of the process allowing us to track batches as well as monitor temperatures and volumes. The four malaxation tanks also allow us to mill for individuals, to separate different olive varieties, or to continuously stream large batches.
The entire system has built-in cleaning systems which enable us to clean between batches, ensuring the quality of each customer’s batch. This feature improves the quality of the oil and greatly reduces the time it would take to clean and prepare between batches.
We are proud of the mill and very pleased to conduct tours by pre-arranged appointments. Please call ahead for a private tour and milling discussion, so we may spend time with you and your family.
