How to Setup Complete Niger Seed Oil Mill Plant
Niger seeds oil production can be accomplished at a small scale, medium scale or large-scale oil processing line, requires Niger seed oil mill machinery and other equipment. All machines & equipment are very easy to install, at the same time, the processing process is simple. But, it can also achieve higher oil production. On a small scale, only 2 to 3 operators are sufficient to manage and operate the entire Niger oil processing plant. If you are planning to build a Niger oil processing line, contact us now to get a customised project plan! All our equipment are sold directly from our factory to ensure all our clients can enjoy the best price!
Machines & Equipment for Niger Oil Mill
Seeds elevator: transport and deliver Niger seeds among various machines.
Seeds cleaning machine: clean Niger seed through replacing sieve in different pore size to remove stones and other impurities.
Cooker: cooking the seeds for maximum oil yield.
Niger seed screw presses: The GOYUM expeller machine is composed of cooker / kettle, pressing cage, screw shaft, main machine stand, and etc. The screw shaft is designed with different rotates and screws, when the oil pressing machine is started, the material will be pushed towards the pressing chamber. Through mechanical pressure, the oil is extracted from Niger seeds and discharged from pressing worms and pressing rings.
Oil filter press: After extraction, crude Niger oil contain impurities, filter press are used to clean Niger oil.
Do you have a strong desire and interest to own an Niger Oil Production Company?
If your answer is yes, Contact Us we will explain you all the requirements of setting up a small, medium or large scale oil extraction plant. As demand for quality oil is increasing, it is a good idea to venture into an Niger oil extraction business.
Niger Seed Production
The production of Niger seed in MY 2019/20, is forecast at 305,000 metric tons, which is slight up by two percent over last year. Looking ahead, post expects production of Niger seed to increase to meet the growing demand for cooking oil and livestock feed.
The Government-backed Integrated Agro-Industrial Parks will offer new opportunities to process this anticipated increase in oilseed production, suggesting that cooking oil imports could slacken in the future. Furthermore, there are a couple of new large-scale edible oil manufacturing plants in the pipeline.
This expansion in the Agro-processing industry is projected to drive up demand for oilseeds. Close to eight hundred thousand smallholder farmers produce Niger seed and more than 95 percent of production is concentrated in the highlands of Oromia and Amhara regions.
Niger Oil Consumption
MY 2019/20 consumption is projected to reach 287,000 metric tons, up roughly by 13,000 metric tons from the preceding year due to increased domestic demand for cooking oil. Consumption is expected to keep growing in the coming years as demand for cooking oil and livestock feed continue to grow. Expansion of edible oil processing complexes and launching of integrated agro-industrial parks is anticipated to spur demand for Niger seed.
The agro-industrial parks are expected to utilize Niger seeds as a raw material for cooking oil productions and other by-products such as Niger seed cake for animal feed. Currently, there are two privately owned large-scale edible oil complex projects under construction.
These edible oil plants are anticipated to go operational in the next couple of years. These mega factories together envisage producing cooking oil that would satisfy about 80% of the total demand in the country. The by-product from Niger seed oil extraction process can be used for livestock feed, especially in animal fattening and dairy rations.
Niger Seed and Oil Properties and Uses
Niger seeds contain about 40% oil and about 20% protein. Niger oil has a composition of fatty acids, which is specific to other compositae family oils, such as safflower and sunflower.
Fortunately, oil produced by crops in the composite family is considered one of the healthiest selections. Niger seed oil contains linoleic acid as the primary fatty acid (75–80%), followed by palmitic and stearic acid (7–8%) and oleic acid (5–8%), However, Indian Niger oil is high in oleic acid (25%) and low in linoleic acid (55%).
Described as having “nutritious taste and a pleasant smell”, edible oil is the main product from Niger seed in both Ethiopia and India. Various methods and equipment are used to extract the oil, including “small oil mills and large oil mills”.
And in addition to cooking purposes, Niger oil is also used for “lighting, consecration, painting and cleaning of machinery”. It may also be an alternative to sesame oil for pharmaceutical purposes and may be used to make soap.
Use of Niger seed cake
After oil extraction, seed cakes can be stored and used as a supplement to animal feed. Niger seed food is reported to be free of any toxins and contains more crude fiber than most oilseed meals. The by-product also contains 30% protein and 23% raw protein. Healthy, greasy pigs are parked behind the mill, confirming the feed value of the Niger seed cake.
