Cotton Seed Oil Tank

May 6th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Products - (Comments Off)

The cotton seed oil tank is used for storage in the solvent extraction plant. There are two basic types of oil tanks: the crude tank and the product tank. The crude tank moves large quantities of unrefined crude oil from its point of extraction to refineries. The product tank is generally much smaller and is designed to move edible oil from refineries to points near markets.

Our highly cost effective cotton seed oil is supplied on very large scale. Our Cotton Seed Oil is remarkable for its quality and is processed under the guidance of experts. We are committed to serve quality products at very genuine prices.

Typically the type of oil tank is selected based upon capacity and the vapor pressure of the product being stored. The working pressure required depends upon the vapor pressure, and the temperature variations of the liquid’s surface.

Cotton Seed Oil Tank in Solvent Extraction Plant
The solvent extraction plant is designed to extract oil directly from oilseeds containing less than 20 percent oil after flaking, such as soybeans. The process is also used for prepressed or fully pressed cake derived from oilseeds containing more than 20 percent oil to include sunflower seeds, peanuts, cotton seeds, palm kernels, canola, copra, castor and others. Extraction is conducted on prepared seeds or, in the case of high oil content seeds, the cakes obtained through pre-pressing.

KMEC destoner machine occupy an important place in the seed treatment procedure. At Tinytech Udyog, we manufacture Destoner machine which gives best functional usage with high performance. Destoners are used during the seed cleaning process to remove unwanted materials like stones, sand, glass, metal pieces and other foreign particles.

Destoners are used in oil mills in order to fully eliminate the presence of such undesirable materials. The working process of destoners is very simple. Air is forced through the materials with the help of the pressure fans, which are located in the body of the machine. This separates the heavier material from the lighter ones.

Destoning helps in increasing the purity and quality of the seeds, which then further increases the quality of the oil that is extracted from these seeds. These machines are used for cleaning all sorts of seeds such as Soyabean, Mustard Seeds, Rape Seeds, Groundnuts, and Cotton Seeds etc.

How to Process the Production of Edible Oil

April 18th, 2013 | Posted by admin in oil seed press - (Comments Off)

home oil press Making your own cooking oils means that you control the ingredients that go into your food, the production of edible oil at home is your good choice. Oils produced with cold press methods and little or no filtering have more flavor and healthier fats. Home production requires considerable effort, but you’re rewarded at the end with oil you can feed to your family without guilt, and the byproducts from making the oil are a nutritious feed for farm animals. Edible oils can be made from all kinds of seeds, nuts and even the most famous fruit for oil, the olive.

  •  •Grind the hulled seeds or nuts with the meat grinder to a coarse texture. You may be able to see oil at this stage.
  • •Every type of oil is a different color and taste. Drill holes into the PVC pipe evenly all around and from top to bottom. These will allow the oil to escape while pressing. Clean the pipe and make sure that no plastic bits cling to the holes.
  • •Affix the jack to the counter with the clamps. Directly below it, place the metal plate on its pedestal inside a metal bowl. You will need a partner to hold this still while the PVC pipe is filled with the oil mash made by grinding the seeds. Pack the mash in tightly, as the friction will keep the pipe in place until the pressure is put on it. Place the second plate on top of the mash and lower the jack into position. There will be enough force at this point to let go of it.

    •Turn on the jack to its lowest setting. Allow it to press for about a half hour. Oil will run out of the holes and fall into the bowl below. When this step is completed, have your partner hold the pipe and pedestal while you release the jack. Remove the apparatus and cover the oil.

    •Allow the oil to settle overnight. You will see a great difference in clarity in the morning. If you plan to cook with the oil, use the coffee filters to remove the impurities or they will burn during cooking. For other uses, the oil may remain unfiltered. Place the oil into an opaque container as direct light is harmful to oils.

Process Description of Edible oil Refining

April 10th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Process of Edible oil Refining - (Comments Off)

The process of edible oil refining in general comprises of Degumming, Neutralization, Bleaching and Deodorization and Winterisation. Chemical refining is the traditional method whereby the free fatty acid of the crude oils are neutralized with Caustic Soda. The resultant Sodium Soaps are removed by Batch Settling or by means of Centrifugal Separators. The neutral oils are subsequently bleached and deodorized. This method can be used for reliably refining virtually all crude oils, including oils of low quality, with the exception of Castor Oil.

In all alternative method of edible oil refining of Physical refining, the free fatty acids are removed by distillation in one stage of deodorizing. A fundamental criterion for using this method is that the crude oils should be degummed as effectively as possible, however this is only possible to a limited extent with some crude oil qualities. Other oils for instance cottonseed oil or fish oils, are fundamentally not suitable for Physical Refining.

Two processes have been developed for the refining of edible oils and fats, i.e. physical and chemical refining; the decision which process to use depends on the types and qualities of the crude oil to be processed. The names physical and chemical refining come from the process technology used to remove the Free Fatty Acids (FFA) that are responsible for the oil acidity.

Physical refining is a process making use of the lower boiling point of the FFA compared to the boiling point of the triglyceride oil. Chemical refining is the traditional method used in past centuries. The main purpose of chemical refining is to saponify the FFA by an alkaline solution and dilute the resulting soaps in a water phase. These soaps are removed by separators. For small scale batch processes static separation is used but for continuous processing and large scale processes, centrifugal separation is used. The neutral oils are subsequently bleached and deodorised. This chemical refining can be used for reliably refining virtually all crude oils, including oils of low quality, with the exception of castor oil.

Extract Oils From Plants

April 9th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Edible Oil Extraction Plant - (Comments Off)

There are three main ways to extract oils from the seed/nut/plant etc:  Cold pressed, expeller pressed, and solvent extraction. The first two involve a machine that mechanically presses down to get the oil out. The last one involves a chemical to help extract as much as the oil from the plant as possible.

The reason behind this post is because while searching for oils I found an organic grape seed oil, and sorry to disappoint you, but we won’t be using that.  As romantic and lovely as it sounds, at $145.00 a gallon it would make our product too expensive for the consumer to purchase. After speaking to the supplier about the cost of his oil, he mentioned a couple of things regarding the process of extracting the oil from the grape seeds.  This got me thinking… I should probably know all this!!
extrac oil
So I did some research and found that there are three main ways to extract oils from plants and it is important!  How the oil is extracted really does matter.
You may have noticed the different oil options that are available to you on the shelves of your super market, specialty store, etc, etc.   Canola oil, for example, might say, “expeller pressed” or “cold pressed” on the bottle. Or it might just say “canola oil”.

Expeller pressed means that the oils were extracted from the plant using a chemical-free mechanical process.  The harder the nut or the seed that you are extracting from, the more pressure that needs to be applied. This results in more friction and higher heat.

Cold pressed, which is the method usually used for delicate oils, means that they are expeller pressed, but in a heat-controlled environment.  The temperature is kept below 120-122 degrees F.

Solvent extraction is the method used in pretty much all conventional oils. This method uses solvent extracts to get the oils out of the plant which not only produces higher yield, but it’s less expensive than expeller and cold pressed methods, and its’ quick.  The problem is that the solvent that is commonly used is hexane.  Some companies say that the solvent is evaporated during the process, but other say some of this chemical remains in the oil. I think this method is suitable for extract big quantities oil.

Oilseeds Plant Brief Introduction in China

March 6th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

China is a country which has large population number with less cultivated lands, in the last few decades. The boom of Chinese population and the development of Chinese industry have driven the average consuming amount of edible oil each year, and the product structure and people’s need keeps changing.

The production of raw material-oilseeds has been increasing, the competitive power of oilseeds species differs with their growing characteristics, market needs and other aspects, Oilseeds market is more complicated after China joined the WTO organization, besides the woody oil plant, oilseeds are the main raw material that used in the edible oil extraction industry. How to adjust the domestic oilseeds structure, and how to utilize the advantages of the domestic market and the abroad market to finally reach the goal of balancing the import and export of oilseeds has becoming a very important case, after all it is one part of the China Food Security System.

Generally speaking the advantages of soybean and rape seed have been weakened, but the advantage of peanut is very stable and remains very competitive. Now the agriculture of China has come to a point that might be called a miles stone, the modern large agriculture machines are promoted in many rural areas, the labor intensive feature of China agriculture is about to change in the following years, so it is predictable that changes will not only happen to the oilseeds plant but also other grain and food crops.

The agriculture was acknowledged as the base of a countries in the acient times, and it still is in some sense, for example as one modern word mentioned above simplifies-Food Security. So will China be able to make some remarkable progress in the oilseeds production? The answer is definitely yes, but how it would be done and how fast it can be done, only time can answer that question.

Hand Press Machine

The hand press machine is ok for flexibility and for small-scale vegetable oil production. Like every other product, it has its pros and cons and to give a proper assessment of the machine we would have to look at the pros and the cons alike. What amount of work can this machine do? We will help you find that out here.

The hand press machine for oil production is good especially if you are using it for small-scale production of oil. The owner of the machine can be able to make their own edible oil from any nuts or seeds that they choose. In addition, having such a machine would enable one to mix different flavors in the oil that they press at home. The flexibility and the ease of use of this machine make it easy for newbies to use it as they want.

Since it will mostly be used for edible oils, the machine’s moving parts are greased with vegetable oils. It has also been made in such a way that it will press all seeds without the user having to remove the husks. The worry of many people is to know what kinds of materials the machine is made. The cutter is made of steel and then it is coated with powder. The way that this machine has been designed is that the oil that is pressed is used as the lubricant and therefore there are no dangers of the chemical lubricants leaking into the oil being pressed for human consumption.

Hand press machines are operated manually by hand. They are thus energy efficient and you will not have to use too much power when using the oil press. They are of a simple design but at the same time, they are very effective.

Is this a cold oil press? Well the truth is that the oil does get a bit warm and the machine may get hot. The machines may also not be used to press fruits.

Choosing The right Castor Oil Plant

January 15th, 2013 | Posted by admin in oil mill plant - (Comments Off)

castor oilThanks to the publicity that natural oils have been receiving, you can now go into business if you choose the right castor oil plant to process natural oil. Of course, there are many factors to consider but first, the most important thing that you need to know about going into this business is that you are as good as the mill that you choose. If you can find the raw materials for castor oil, then you will be set to go into business and the good news is that you will find the rewards well worth it.

First, decide whether you will be producing the castor oil on a small-scale or on a large-scale basis. However, even more important than that is to know how the castor oil press works. This need not be hard at all as we will show you here. For example, the castor beans enter the extrusion chamber via the hopper. In the extruding chamber, there is the pressing screw and it is here that the castor seeds are pressed. There is a lot of friction occurring in the extruding chamber and you know that where there is friction, there is heat. This heat enhances the production of very high quality and elastic castor oil. It also ensures that as much oil as there is in the seeds is pressed out.

oil-plantWhile the castor oil presses might be out of business today, what is to stop you from using them? However, the most common plant is the oil mill. For commercial purposes, the oil is processed by pre-pressing then resulting the cake is moved to solvent extracting section. For small-scale castor oil production, the plant will have a full pressing mill where the castor seeds are double pressed for high production of oil. Choosing a good brand name for your castor oil mill is paramount.

How oil is refined in an oil mill plant

December 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in oil mill plant - (Comments Off)

Oil is produced from a variety of seeds that have to go through a number of steps for the extraction to be completed.  These steps vary depending on the extraction process which can either involve mechanical or even chemical extraction. These two extraction methods are the most common with the chemical method sometimes being preferred more than the mechanical method. For large amounts of oil to be extracted from seeds in an oil mill plant using mechanical extraction, the two processes that they have to go through is the pressing of the seeds until all the oil flows out. There are a number of machines used such as the oil press to make sure that the extraction is successful.

However, the extraction can also be done using chemicals such as hexane which are said to be effective in the ensuring that there is no oil that is lost through wastage. Most times the chemical extraction is done as a backup of mechanical extraction in a bid to ensure that there is no remaining oil left in the seeds. It is at this point that the question, “How is oil refined?” becomes relevant especially since chemicals have been used in the extraction process. To refine oil, there is a process known as solvent extraction that removes any chemical that may have been left in the oil. Furthermore, if there are any remnants of the seeds they are eliminated as well so that the refined oil is as pure as possible.

Nevertheless, if mechanical extraction was the only process the seeds went through then the oil can be refined by filtering or skimming over the surface of the container that holds the oil and removing any impurities that may make the oil inedible.

Features of a small scale oil seed press

December 5th, 2012 | Posted by admin in oil seed press - (Comments Off)

The only way to get oil from seeds is to press them using an oil seed press which is one of the types of equipment found in an oil milling plant. The oil seed press can be small or large depending on the amount of seed that it processes on a regular basis. Since the machines used to press oil are varied especially those used in small scale, it is important for potential buyers of these types of equipment to be aware of some of their features.  Apart from having a variety of features, an oil seed press used for small scale purposes have advantages as well. Some of these advantages include their design which is usually simple, less noise, user friendly, less residue of oil and an oil output that is high among others.
small scale oil seed press
An oil seed press used in small scale has general features that can be easily identified by a buyer seeking to purchase one to be used in an oil mill. Most of these machines have a base made of cast iron which is very important for their stability when in use. Another feature is that they can withstand high or low temperatures that are common while the pressing of oil is taking place. Furthermore, the structure of small scale oil presses is usually compact which enables it to withstand the different processes that it has to perform to make sure the oil seeds are well prepared.

Overall, it is important to purchase an oil seed press from a reputable company to be able to guarantee that the equipment is of quality and will perform at its optimum. In addition, the purchase can be made form an online store or a physical office where the oil presses are stored for sale.
