Corn / Maize Germ Oil Mill Plant

Generally Fat content in Corn ranges between 3.6% and 5.7%. The fat of Corn Kernel concentrated mainly in germ. A study showed that corn consists of 11.5% germ with an average oil content of 34.8%

Corn / Maize germ is produced as a by-product of the Corn / Maize milling industries. There are 2 types of Corn / Maize milling, either Wet Milling or Dry Milling.

In wet-milling industries, starch and its product, corn syrup, dextrose dextrin etc are the principal products. In Dry milling Corn / Maize Flour is the main product.

Oil content of Corn / Maize germ produced by Wet Milling is as high as 50% and that by Dry Milling is about 25%.

We undertake turnkey project solutions for the complete Corn / Maize-Germ Oil Extraction Plant.

Major Corn producing countries are USA, China, Brazil, Argentina, Mexico, Ukraine, India, Indonesia, Russia, Canada, France and Romania.

Seed Cleaner

Seed Cleaner is an effective equipment designed to effectively remove foreign material from the corn germ.

We offer a Multi-deck vibrating type Seed Cleaner complete with Aspiration System and dust collection box. It is available in various sizes and capacities that best suit the requirements of our customers.

Oil Expeller / Oil Press

Oil content of Corn / Maize germ produced by Wet Milling is as high as 50% and that by Dry Milling is about 25%.

2 Stage pressing is required for wet milled corn germ and single stage pressing is required for dry milled corn germ. About 8 – 10 % residual oil is left in the corn meal which is an excellent source of Animal Feed.

The Corn Germ are conditioned using Steam in a Vertical Cooking Kettle.

The conditioned Corn Germ is fed into the chamber. A screw rotates inside the chamber which increases the pressure by reducing the length of the screw pitch in the direction of axial motion. The gradually increasing pressure to extract the oil that exits through the slot provided on the chamber while the pressed cake continues to move towards a discharge in the direction of the shaft.

Filter Press with Pump

Crude Corn oil moves into an oil tank as it contains 5 ~ 6% suspended particles which is removed by the filter press.

GOYUM is an expert in liquid and solid separation and offers a wide range of plate, plate & frame type filter presses with different capacities to suit specific application needs for trouble-free operation.
