KMEC Destoner Machine

April 26th, 2013 | Posted by admin in Oil Pretreatment Machine - (Comments Off)

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  edible oil production 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 edible oil refining process 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!!

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.
