Acceleration Assessment During Mechanical Harvest of Grapes Using a non Commercial Instrumented Sphere Mariangela Vallone, Maria Alleri, Filippa Bono, Pietro Catania* University of Palermo,Expand
A novel system for measuring damaging impacts on table olives
The consumer today demands high quality products; fruit with defects or in poor condition generate dissatisfaction and a consequent reduction in consumption. In recent years, interesting systems haveExpand
An oxygen monitoring and control system inside a malaxation machine to improve extra virgin olive oil quality
In recent years, oxygen content regulation during malaxation has been noted as a process parameter. The aim of this study was to identify the optimal time during the malaxation process of the olivesExpand
Effects of tilling methods on soil penetration resistance, organic carbon and water stable aggregates in a vineyard of semiarid Mediterranean environment
Tillage, especially in semiarid Mediterranean environment, enhances the mineralization process of soil organic matter (SOM) and, in turn, decreases aggregate stability. Furthermore, continuousExpand
Effect of O2 control and monitoring on the nutraceutical properties of extra virgin olive oils
Abstract The presence of oxygen during malaxation has key role in improving Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) quality in terms of volatile and phenolic compounds. The objective of this study was toExpand
ASSESSMENT OF THE PEDICEL DETACHING AND CRUSHING FORCES OF GRAPE BERRIES TO DETERMINE THE OPTIMAL MECHANICAL HARVESTING TIME
The mechanical harvesting of grapes is an important operation in order to contain the operating costs of the viticultural farms. One of the limits of the mechanical harvesting of grapes isExpand
Real time continuous oxygen concentration monitoring system during malaxation for the production of Virgin Olive Oil
During the mechanical extraction process of Virgin Olive Oil (VOO) some important physical phenomena and enzymatic transformations occur which influence the quality of the final product. The controlExpand
