These oil mill can process a number of oilseeds like peanut, soya, cotton seeds sunflower seeds, corn germ, rape seeds, canola, castor, sesame, neem seed, sheanut, palm kernel and the like. The most important equipment in the entire milling / pressing process is oil expellers which are used for high oil content seeds and also used for smaller capacity oil production plant.
 
In former times, oil extraction was done exclusively with presses. In most oil milling plant, oil extraction is done with expellers as pre extraction before solvent extraction or as direct press extraction.

 

Oil Milling Plant

 
Oil Pressing
Mechanical oil pressing is to extract the oil by certain oil pressing machine from the oil material by physics pressure, all the courses are without any chemical additive. The typical oil pressing method usually include the following two kinds, cold pressing and hot pressing.
 
Cold Pressing:The temperature should be controlled between 60~ 70 ℃, in order to prevent the protein denaturation or other nutrition in the oil will be easier to refine. By using this oil pressing method, a certain oil pressing machine - cold press will be used.
 
Cold pressing or cold milling generally refers to the process of mechanically separating oil while pressing or crushing oil seeds using only the application of pressure, without the addition of heat or chemicals. By using a cold pressing machine the natural structure of the oil is maintained along with all of its natural characteristics.
 
Cold pressing does not actually mean pressing the seeds without any heat, as oil extraction cannot be done without the use of heat. Heat extracts oil from the seeds faster. In fact, it is hard to find oils that are pressed without heat.
 


Hot Pressing: According to the heat and to extract more oil, the temperature should above 110 ℃, the oil pressing machine - hot press can get higher output, usually 10%~15%higher.
 
Hot pressing refers to the art of applying heat in conjunction with mechanical pressure. Here in the oil milling plant, hot pressing means cooking the oil seeds with a hot pressing machine before pressing in order to extract more oil.
 
All main parts of hot pressing machine such as the worm shaft, pressing worms, cage bars and gears are made of high-grade alloy steel that have undergone hardening treatment. As a result, in spite of the constant conditions of high temperature and abrasion, durability prolongs their usable life for a considerable period of time.
The combination of steaming and roasting is also one of the features of this type of hot pressing machine. It can be regulated in accordance with the requirements of various oil-bearing materials, including pre-pressing temperatures to get high quality oils.
The whole process—from feeding, steaming, and roasting up to the discharge of oil and cake—goes on automatically and continuously. This makes it easy to operate the hot pressing machine, which results in the saving of labor.
 
 
Oil pressing often includes thress sections, they are cooking , pressing and filtering. In each process, different equipment will be used, such as steam cooker, oil press,  plate filter press.
 
 


Advantages of  Mechanical Pressing Technology

 
The speed reducer saves the energy of the equipments
The speed reducer make the equipments energy saved;
The special design of the expellers are with lower residual oil left in cake and make higher oil output;
The quality of oil cake from pressing is higher, more suits for downstream processing.
Versatile to process many kinds of oil seeds, such as peanut kernels, rapeseeds, cotton seeds, sunflower seeds, corn germ, palm kernel, sesame, etc.
