Starting a Small Scale Soya Oil Plant

Soya oil is one of the highly consumed vegetable oils in the world. It is used largely due to its multiple health benefits. It is extracted from the soybean seeds with the help of different vegetable oil manufacturing machines. These machines, set up in an oil extraction factory, clean the soybean, cook it to increase oil yield, compress the seeds to extract oil and then filter it to improve the quality of the oil.

Equipment Required to Set up A Small Soybean Oil Mill Plant

Soybean oil manufacturing process through a machine is not an overly complicated process. Anyone with drive and determination can start their own mini or small scale soya oil plant. The most important part of the process is to understand how to extract oil from soya beans, what equipment is required and how much it would cost. When starting a mini/small soyabean oil plant, you will need to invest in soya bean oil processing machines. (Related post: Mini Oil Mill Machinery Price >>)

  • Cleaning Machine

To make sure the soybean oil produced has a high quality, the soybean is first cleaned in a cleaner properly. Seed cleaning machine removes dirt, rocks, and all other impurities that can reduce the quality of soybean oil. The raw material is then dried with the help of a drier and then the soybean is de-hulled to remove its hulls. These hulls can absorb oil and reduce the overall oil yield. That is why their separation is essential.

  • Cooking Machine

To increase soyabean oil yield, a cooking machine is used to adjust the moisture content so that a large moisture content does not affect the quality and quantity of oil. In this machine, soybean is heated at a temperature ranging from 60 and 88 °C.

  • Soybean Oil Press

Soybean oil expeller press is an important machine used in small or mini soybean oil plant. The processed and cleaned soybean is fed in oil pressing machine. In the pressing chamber, the soybean is pressed with the help of a pressing ring and pressing worm. Due to the pressure, crude oil starts coming out of the soybean.  

  • Oil Filter Machine

Soybean oil produced in the above step is in its crude form. It must be filtered properly to remove all organic impurities from the crude oil. For this purpose, an oil filter machine is used. It filters the crude oil and separates fatty acids and other volatile compounds that can produce a bad odor and affect the quality of soybean oil.

  • Soybean Oil Refining

The filtered oil is further refined in oil refinery plant to increases the quality of oil and make sure no other impurity (phospholipids, off-flavor, pigments, and other impurities) is left behind. In a min or small scale soyabean oil plant, soybean oil refining machine is optional. You can choose to equip small scale soybean oil refining machine or not, which all deponds on your soybean oil business plan and investment budget.
