Olive oil is a liquid fat obtained from olives, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin, produced by pressing whole olives and extracting the oil. It is commonly used in cooking, for frying foods or as a salad dressing. It is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and soaps, and as a fuel for traditional oil lamps, and has additional uses in some religions.
When you are bottling olive oil there are several types of filling machines you may choose.
VKPAK designs and builds filling machines and packaging equipment for olive oil.
Our olive oil filling machines are designed to meet the changing needs of the olive oil industry. We manufacture the ideal machinery to handle your olive oil filling needs and meet your production goals.
Spain accounts for almost half of global olive oil production; other major producers are Italy, Tunisia, Greece and Turkey. Per capita consumption is highest in Greece, followed by Italy and Spain.
Olive oil is composed mainly of the mixed triglyceride esters of oleic acid, linoleic acid, palmitic acid and of other fatty acids, along with traces of squalene and sterols. The composition varies by cultivar, region, altitude, time of harvest, and extraction process.[From Wiki]
Suitable filling material: this machine adopts piston pump or rotary lobe pump, which is suitable for all kind materials, with highfilling speed and high filling precision.
Controlling system: the machine adopts full-auto plc and human-computer touch screen control system.
For different volumes adjustment, we set several procedures, mode 1, mode 2, mode 3``` operators do not need too much complicated adjustments, the filling machine can switch betweenthe three models easily.
Bottle position correct device: to ensure the bottles and filling nozzles are in the correct position, we add a special bottles position device to make the whole filling process smooth and stable.
No bottle no filling: filling nozzles. The filling nozzles are specialized made: anti drop. Also, the filling nozzles will come into the bottle bottom, and moving up slowly when filling.
Cleaning: the pump uses quick-fit removal structure, it is easy cleaning and disinfection. rotary lobe pump filling machine can connect to the CIP system.
Ropp cappers are a specialized capping machine ideal for for liquor, medical, pharmaceuticals, beverages, food, agrochemicals, edible oil, lube oil and misc. Industries. Heads with low tension springs can be fitted to seal pet / pvc / hdpe bottle. Capping heads can be adjusted for any shape and sizes bottles. Capping heads with two threading and two sealing rollers for different diameters and heights (standard semi-deep drawn, deep drawn, extra deep drawn) of caps. Automatic ropp cappers can be integrated into existing packaging lines or stand alone as a packaging station in a production facility, using a power conveyor and an indexing system to provide higher speed capping.
The sealing & threading pressure can be easily adjusted. Centering guides fitted in the heads ensure that bottle is centered properly before capping to ensure precise and accurate capping.
At VKPAK, we are proud to be a supplier of a variety of liquid filling equipment for many different industries. One industry that utilizes liquid filling machines often is the food industry, and olive oil is just one product that is filled into bottle with these machines. There are a variety of different liquid filling machines that can be used to fill oils into containers, and there are several capping machines to choose from as well.
Types Of Olive Oil Filling Machines
There are a variety of liquid filling machines, and some are more suitable than others for certain products. For the filling of olive oil, we prefer piston filling machine, of which there are two very important reasons, the first is that the piston filling machine is very suitable for olive oil filling, both speed and accuracy, the second is that the piston filling machine is more cost effective and cheaper compared to other filling machines. Of course, the traditional piston filling machine has its own disadvantages: it is not so easy to clean (although we are equipped with a quick cleaning module), so if the budget is sufficient, the rotary lobe pump filling machine will be a good choice.

Types Of Capping Machines
Once your product is filled into the containers, you’ll need to seal the containers securely. There are a few options available for doing so. Chuck capping machine, which affixes caps to containers by allowing the container to stay stationary, while a rotating head drops down and twists the cap on tightly. Spindle cappers are a similar machine, except they have the container rotating rather than the lid. Snap cappers apply the caps by snapping them onto the containers, and finally, wheel pluggers, work buy inserting a plug into the container—think of products like wine bottles that have corks; those are sealed with a wheel plugger.
