The General Process of Groundnut Oil Production

The groundnut oil production process includes oilseed preparation, pressing, filtration, bottling and oilcake bagging.

There is a good opportunity for businessmen / farmers / societies / investors to invest in the groundnut oil production line.

You can also get help from local consulting companies that deal in this registration process. After setting up your business plan and getting the feasibility report, you are ready for procuring the peanut oil mill machinery on turnkey basis

The best quality equipment needed to build your peanut oil factory is manufactured by GOYUM SCREW PRESS at affordable prices. We undertake Turnkey Projects Worldwide.

Basic equipment required to start a groundnut Oil production line are:

Steam Boilers

Steam is generated with the help of a water feed pump in the steam boiler unit. The output stream is transported to the expeller’s cooking / kettle where the seeds are pre-conditioned and cooked with mild steam for the same results of groundnut oil extraction.

Groundnut Decorticator

Groundnut Decorticator removes the groundnut shells into husks and kernels. Husks are thrown away by built-in air blower and kernels are screened to separate split kernels from whole kernels.

Steam Cooker / Kettle

The pre-conditioned oilseed is fed into the cooker/kettle for the steam heating purpose. oilseed conditioning is necessary for high quality oils. Round kettle and long kettle designs are available for specific oilseeds to achieve proper results in oil production.

Oil Expeller

The cooked peanuts will come to the expeller where they are crushed inside the chamber. The main production will be cooking oil and the secondary oil by-product will be cake. Our oil expeller machines are very strong and heavy duty to use any type of raw material. This will produce the best quality of peanut oil.

Oil Filter

The crude oil is pumped into the oil filter to be cleaned. The filtered oil will be completely transparent, fresh, pure and natural in taste without any chemicals. The filter press is specifically designed for better filtration and better quality of the groundnut oil.
