In this article, experimental data are reported concerning viscosity measurements carried out on olive paste at different phases of the extraction process. Using these data, a rheological analysis of experimental samples was carried out. The analysis showed that the actual olive paste rheological behavior is correctly described by a non-Newtonian model expressed by a power law model, well known in the literature. Numerical values for the power law parameters were determined at each step of the olive milling process. Moreover, a deeper analysis was carried out to investigate the capability of three different analytical models to predict the relative viscosity of olive paste as a function of solids volume fraction at different phases of the extraction process. Model predictions are compared to experimental data and discussed.

Abstract

In this article, experimental data are reported concerning viscosity measurements carried out on olive paste at different phases of the extraction process. Using these data, a rheological analysis of experimental samples was carried out. The analysis showed that the actual olive paste rheological behavior is correctly described by a non-Newtonian model expressed by a power law model, well known in the literature. Numerical values for the power law parameters were determined at each step of the olive milling process. Moreover, a deeper analysis was carried out to investigate the capability of three different analytical models to predict the relative viscosity of olive paste as a function of solids volume fraction at different phases of the extraction process. Model predictions are compared to experimental data and discussed.
