Edible Oil Extraction and Refining- What Takes Place

March 6th, 2012 | Posted by admin in Products

Edible Oil Extraction is one of the companies that is well renowned for its prowess when it comes to edible oil extraction and refining.  Most of this work is done through chemical processes making the process to be relatively simple.  The company uses a press that contains a large screw within it. This is helpful because it helps in grinding the material while at the same time expressing the oil via pressure and mild heat.

Edible oil extraction and refining is done from several plant matters which are considered to be good sources such as safflower, hemp, walnuts, coconuts, soybeans, oil palm kernels, peanuts, soy beans,  sunflower, almonds, sesame seeds, canola and hazelnuts among others.

When carrying out these processes, the first thing that you are required to do is to collect dried seeds, nuts, beans and other plant matters. All of them should be rich in oil and all the foreign objects removed completely.  Once you are done, the next thing that you will be required to do is adjusting the oil press in order for it to accommodate the different types of plant matters that you are willing to press. It is important to consider the Edible Oil Extraction manufacturer’s directions.

Take a medium container and place it under the oil press for it to catch the oil that is being expelled. Take another big container and put it at the far end of the oil press for it to catch all the cakes that have been produced during the pressing process. Since the oil press contains a hopper, it is important to fill it with the plant matter and push it into the press machine using a rod that is made of wood. Once the container is full, you are advised not to press it anymore. Continue with the process until all the plant matter that you have has been pressed. The final stage is where the oil is decanted and later on refined for public use.
