Sunflower Oil Mill Plant Process

A sunflower oil extraction plant involves the following steps: seed cleaning, oil extraction, oil filtration, and crude oil refining.

Seed Cleaning Machine

Prior to extraction, oilseed is passed through the seeds cleaner machine to remove the metals or other impurities. It is important to get rid of impurities that might affect the oil production process.

Sunflower Oil Extraction

The cleaned seeds are put in the kettle of screw oil press machine with the help of screw conveyor. The sunflower seed contain 38 – 40 % oil content and double pressing required to extract the oil from the sunflower seeds.

In the first pressing 18 – 20 % oil will be recovered, to extract the remaining oil (20% oil still present in the oilcake) required second pressing from which 10 to 12% oil will be recovered and remaining oil in oilcake is 10 % – 12 % which will be used as animal feed. Crude oil moved into a crude oil tank before processed through a filter press. The oilcake will move directly from the press to the storage area. Crude oil contains foots which is removed with the help of filter press machines.

Oil Refining

Refining is done to improve the color, flavor, odor, and stability by use of processes that enhance the bleaching, degumming, deodorizing and neutralizing the oil. The entire refining processes eliminate pollutants like free fatty acids, pro-oxidants, and phosphatides. Additional processing of fats and oils is often desirable. For instance, some are de-waxed while others are improved to alter their melting features. Now, you’ll get liquid and solid products which are then packed various quantities ready for market.
