small scale vegetable oil production line
Vegetable oil production line is open for producing natural and qualitative vegetable oil from high quality seeds of different kind of plants, such as sunflower, sesame, soybean, palm, cotton, peanut, rape and others.
It includes few processes: pre-treatment and pre-pressing, extraction and refining.
- On the first stage the seeds are going through cleaning, hulling, crushing, flaking, softening, cooking, pressing and filtering. For this process different types of pressing systems are used, according to a volume of output you need and also according to a type of seeds you are using to get certain oil. The oil pressing system as a rule contains a cleaning sieve, screw elevators, a cooker, a presser, a filter and a refiner. It all depends on a model and design, which different companies can provide you. All seeds are going to a cleaning sector and after step by step to each mentioned sector to be ready for a next stage.
- The second stage includes extracting, removing the solvent nature, evaporating, stripping and solvent recycling. Extraction process is the process, which means the separation oil from seeds. The pre-processed seeds are treated in a multistage counter current process with solvent. Then oil and solvent are separated by distillation. The solvent going into the extraction recycle process and the crude oil is ready for a next step. This process will keep production safety and provides a good quality.
- The last stage provides degumming, discoloring, deodorization, removing wax, fractionation etc. De-waxing section is optional. On the stage of degumming the oil separated from sand, after which it gets to be free from free-fatty acids and color pigments. Then the smell and odor are removed from the oil, because many seeds have special odors and smells, which many people don't like. So, that will allow getting a high quality production of oil.
