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.

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.
