Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Which kinds of oil materials can be processed?
We can design plants suitable to process various types of raw materials like Soybean, Cottonseed, Groundnut / Peanut / Earthnut, Palm Fruit, Palm Kernel, Sunflower Seed, Shea Nut Kernel, Mustard, Canola, Rape seed, Copra, Coconut, Sesame Seed, Flax Seed, Cashew Nut Shell, Neem Seed, Niger Seed, Castor Seed, Corn Germs, Jatropha, etc.
Q: What’s the input capacity of your machinery?
We can design and manufacture oil mill plants starting from 15 ton/day input.
Q: How to choose the suitable one?
Please tell us your requirements such as what type of raw material you want to process, and what is your intended production capacity per day, so as to design a suitable plant for you.
Q: How long the goods will be shipped?
We keep minimum inventory levels so usually we can dispatch within 45 days. However, firm delivery time can only be given at the time of order confirmation.
Q: How will you control the quality and delivery?
We adhere to strict quality practices. All raw materials are tested both chemically and physically before being used. We perform empty trials for all machinery before dispatch. We provide pictures once ready for dispatch. Alternatively, clients can also opt for third party inspection for further re-assurance.
Q: How about the warranty of the machine?
We provide one year’s warranty against manufacturing defects.
Q: What do we do if we encounter problems with the machine?
You can share images / videos of the issues being faced and our customer care will reach you out and advice suitable trouble shooting options. If the problem is out of your control, our engineer will be sent to your factory.
Q: How Much Workspace / Area is Required to Start an Oil Mill?
The land area typically depends on the capacity of the plant. We can suggest an appropriate space to prepare after given specifications, or, can design the oil plant in-house specifically to the amount of workspace available.
Q: What is the Labor Requirement for running the plant?
We can design both semi automatic as well as fully automatic plants. The Labour requirement will differ based on the type of plant offered to you. This will be advised to you at the time of proposal.
Q: Do you provide any guidance on Preventive Maintenance and Process ?
After installation, we will provide a complete set of Operational and Process Manuals which will mention start & stop guidelines along with preventive maintenance schedule and other details. Also, our engineer will train your staff for the same during installation and commissioning of the project.
Q: Do you keep provision for future expansion ?
Yes, we can design a plant which is easily expandable only by adding a few major machinery. This will increase the initial investment marginally but allows for flexibility of expansion in near future.
Q: Do you provide both Hot & Cold Press ?
Yes, we can design plants to extract oil either by Hot Press or Cold Press both depending on the type of raw material to be processed.
Q: Do you provide Food Grade Press ?
Yes, we also offer complete Stainless Steel contact parts based on customer requirements.
Q: What solutions do you provide for minimising labour requirement ?
We can offer automatic foot recycling using Vibro-Separators / Screening Tank. Also we can provide PLC Based plants which can be controlled centrally.
Q: How do you determine the performance of the plant during commissioning ?
Oil Yield shall be determined by weighing on calibrated scales with relative accuracy of 0.1%. Consumption of steam will be measured using a steam flow meter with recorder with an accuracy of ±2%. Power shall be measured using power or KWH meter. Quantity of water shall be measured by a flow counter with an accuracy of ±2%.
