One of the main production activities of Eco Treasures is the ecological extraction of essential oils from residual vegetable feedstock and fine fruit seeds. In order to meet high-quality standards and ensure the best production efficiency, the Belgium-based company turned to Russell Finex, a supplier of high-quality separation equipment.
The extraction of seed oil from residual frozen pulp begins by separating the seeds from the juice pulp. To separate the seeds, the frozen pulp is first melted and then dried.
The issue the company was facing was that there was too much dust from the dried juice pulp attached to the seeds after the drying process, which resulted in a lower quality of extracted oil. With the Russell Eco Separator® installed in place of the previous sieving system, Eco Treasures was able to separate dust from the fine seeds enabling them to send the seeds through the press dust free.
Not only did the Russell Finex machine eliminate dust from the seeds, but it also saved it time by reducing the amount of labour that went into the previous production process. These two factors contributed to a reduction in manufacturing costs for Eco Treasures, as well as an increase in productivity and a better product for its customers.
