Advantages of Buying Sunflower Oil Extracting Machine

High Quality Meal
Differ to pressing method, extracting oil with the sunflower oil extracting machine Moldova, the temperature is lower in the related steps. So, the final produced oil meal has higher quality whose protein has low degeneration degree. Such oil meal has high value of being used as feed raw materials, also it is easy to separate the protein form the oil meal. (Read more: Start A Small Vegetable Oil Plant)

Low Residual Oil
Pressing method is the common oil making method, widely used in many kinds of oil production. But, during the pressing production, the oil cells cannot be destroyed completely, leaving a part of oil in the oil cakes. While, with the sunflower oil extraction machine, the residual oil rate can be controlled below 1%.(Related article: 10tpd Soybean Oil Press Processing Line In South Africa)

Low Production Cost
Sunflower oil extracting machine requires a complete production with high mechanization degree, easy to realize the automation. It requires less people in the factory, reducing the labor cost, and low energy consumption during the production, reducing the production cost.(See more: Rapeseed Oil Refining Production Line In Ethiopia)

Sunflower Oil Manufacturing Process

Sunflower seeds are removed most foreign impurities by Cleaning Sieve. Through screw conveyor, cleaned sunflower seeds are transported to pulverizer. Smashed sunflower seeds are elevated to Steam Cooker that can soften sunflower seed flakes by high temperature and break internal cells. Then, the material is transported to the stir cooker installed on the upside of screw Oil press by screw conveyor, and cooked to get suitable moisture. At there, all the pretreatment for sunflower seeds are completed.

The pretreated sunflower material is loaded into Screw Oil Press Machine to squeeze oil out. The crude oil coming out from Sunflower Oil Press Machine will be directly filtered large particles by screen and stored into the oil tank temporarily. When the crude oil is reaching about 1.5 tons. All the crude oil will be filtered by Oil Filter Machine. Filtered oil is pumped into refining pot to precipitate and remove the soap. After neutralizing, decoloring, vacuum deodorization and filtration, edible sunflower oil is obtained. All the refined oil is stored in product oil tank. After automatic filling and labelling, the sunflower oil can be sold into market directly.

The complete process of sunflower oil manufacturing process is automated and easy to operate. The detailed sunflower oil processing machine in every vegetable oil extraction plant may vary a little.

Tips On Sunflower Seed Oil Making Plant Setup

  • The pre-treatment of sunflower seed is necessary since it can remove impurities from sunflower seed, change its shape to meet the requirements of oil production. See more pre-treatment machines at ABC Machinery.
  • Choosing a reliable sunflower seed oil processing machine supplier can get twofold results with half the effort, this is especially true for people who have less knowledge on sunflower oil processing. ABC Machinery has undertaken many sunflower oil production projects in the world.
  • Pre-pressing can extrude some of the oil from the sunflower seed to improve the oil yield

The pressing method is also called “physical squeeze method”, which is to extrude the oil from sunflower seeds by external force and not apply to other chemical solvents, so as to avoid the residue of organic solvent in oil. Sunflower Oil Processing Plant retains almost all the nutrients in sunflower seed oil, making fresh and non-greasy, and rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids.
