The PITEBA Manual Oil Press is imported and distributed around Australia by NTP Health Products – a company with more than 24 years’ experience in the natural and organic health and beauty industry.
The PITEBA Manual Oil Press was designed by Edwin Blaak. According to Edwin:
“The technical development of the Piteba oil press took me about five years. Often when I made changes to the device they appeared to work out well for a specific kind of seed, but then the alterations caused problems for pressing other kind of seeds. Seeds and nuts from all over the world were tested. Once the test results were good for all seeds, I perfected the final design.
“The Piteba products are produced in Scheemda, The Netherlands, in a typical farmhouse built in 1852. In 2005 I installed all equipment needed for the work shop and started the production of the devices on a small scale. The production was optimized in 2006 and 2007. Larger quantities are now produced, but the products are still hand made.
“In 2013 extra machinery was installed to produce nut crackers and wine racks. They are also hand made.
“The Piteba presses are sold online to over 140 countries. Customer feedback helps me to understand how the machine is being used. Special seeds and nuts are tested on request and questions about the use of the press may be forwarded to me personally.
“The number of seeds and nuts that can be pressed still expands. Experiments with perilla, baobab, karité, argan, black oil seeds (Nigella), cotton seeds, almond, pecan nut, macadamia, kukui nut, acorns and neem gave positive results. Some require extra treatment or a small trick for optimal oil yield. The feedback from users of the Piteba expeller helps to improve press results.”
