How to Make Edible Oil with Small Oil Production Line ?

Small Edible Oil Pressing & Refining Machines

The process of making edible oil with our small oil production line involves several essential steps to ensure the highest quality and efficiency. 

  • Raw Material Pre-processing: The process begins with the selection of high-quality raw materials, such as seeds or nuts, which are then cleaned to remove any impurities using equipment like seed cleaning machines.

  • Oil Pressing Process: The cleaned seeds undergo a pre-pressing stage using a screw oil press machine. This step extracts a portion of the oil from the seeds and leaves behind oil-rich cake. 

  • Oil Extracting Process: The pre-pressed cake is then subjected to solvent extraction with the help of a solvent extractor. In this step, a food-grade solvent is used to separate the remaining oil from the cake, resulting in a defatted meal and crude oil.

Following pre-pressing, the oilseed cake undergoes a process known as solvent extraction. Solvent extraction involves using a food-grade solvent to extract the remaining oil from the cake, leaving behind a defatted meal. This step ensures maximum oil yield and minimizes waste.

  • Oil Refining process:The crude oil is then passed through a series of refining processes to produce high-quality edible oil. Degumming, neutralization, bleaching, and deodorization are the key refining steps, and they require equipment like a degumming tank, neutralization tank, bleaching tower, and deodorization tank, respectively.

  • After refining process: Once the oil has undergone refining, it is filtered using an oil filter machine to remove any remaining impurities and achieve a clear appearance. The filtered edible oil is now ready for consumption or further processing into various food products.

Small Oil Pressing & Refining Application

  • Home Cooking and Culinary Use:

Whether it's extracting oil from seeds, nuts, or olives, small oil production setups find widespread application in households and culinary settings, where individuals and families produce their own edible oils. 

  • Small-Scale Food Businesses:

Emerging food entrepreneurs and small-scale food businesses can benefit from small oil production lines to create their unique branded oils.

  • Rural Farming Communities:

In rural areas with limited access to large-scale oil mills, small oil production applications play a crucial role. Local farmers can process their oilseeds on-site, reducing transportation costs and ensuring the availability of fresh and affordable cooking oils within their communities. This empowers farmers to add value to their produce and diversify their income streams.

  • Nutraceutical and Cosmeceutical Industries:

Small oil production lines are also utilized in the nutraceutical and cosmeceutical industries to extract valuable oils used in health supplements, natural remedies, and beauty products.
