First, the olive kernels are placed and passed through a moving chain that separates the leaves and impurities, and then the olive kernels are washed with water from dust and dirt.
Secondly, this moving chain transports the clean olive kernels to a mill where the olive kernels are ground. After this phase, dough is obtained from the kernels and liquids.
Third, the dough and liquids move to the pressing stage, where they are passed through tubes, and there the dough is pressed, and we get the fluids consisting of water and oil.
Fourth, the last stage, the fluids are passed to a machine, and there the liquids are separated according to the density. Thus, we get pure oil, then it is sold and packaged to traders to be sold in the markets.
