Solvent Extraction Plant

Solvent Extraction Plants


Solvent Extraction
, as the name suggests is a process to extract the oil from oil bearing materials by means of Solvent, Solvent used being normal Hexane - a petroleum by-product.

Our proven design is simple, robust, operator friendly flexible for easy change over of the process material and with inbuilt safety features. Our plants have been operating for almost four decades.

The extractor is horizontal in construction a concept with universal acceptance, in fact most of the extraction plants working through out the world have adopted horizontal design of extractor. The extractor works on counter current, moving bed principal with variable bed height and variable speed mechanism permitting excellent penetration and percolation of solvent for absolute extraction. The low speed of extractor conveyor ensures almost no maintenance.

Distillation takes place under vacuum and desolventising of meal is done in liberally designed Desolventiser Toaster. For solvent recovery adequate capacity condensers and vent air stripping system is provided.

Solvent Extraction Plants offered by us are versatile in operation. Any oil bearing material after subjecting it to recommended preparation can be extracted in the same Solvent Extraction Plant.

Special preparatory equipments are recommended to suit individual characteristics of raw materials.

Castor Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Castor Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Castor seed is a very important oil seed. The castor oil has very large industrial use. Castor seed contains more than 48% oil.

At first stage the oil is recovered by mechanical pressing in oil mill with the help of expellers / screw presses. The resultant cake contains 10 to 12% oil. This oil is recovered by solvent extraction process.

Details available on request.

Groundnuts / Peanuts Solvent Extraction Plants

Groundnuts / Peanuts - Solvent Extraction Plants

Groundnuts / Peanuts are first decorticated to remove the husk. The kernels so obtained have an oil content in excess of 48%. The kernels are subjected to mechanical extraction with the help of screw presses. The resultant cake has residual oil content varying from 8 to 12% depending on the extent of pressing. The pre-pressed cake is subjected to solvent extraction process for recovery of the residual oil.

Details available on request.

Sunflower Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Sunflower Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Sunflower seeds contain more than 45% of oil. The seeds are first subjected to decortications to obtain high protein meal, the decorticated Sunflower seeds are subjected to mechanical extraction. In one method only pre-pressing is carried out leaving 18 to 20% as residual oil in the pre-pressed cake. In the second method full pressing is carried out in screw presses leaving 10 to 12% residual oil in the fully pressed cake. For recovery of residual left over oil in the cake, the cake is subjected to solvent extraction process.

Details available on request.

Cotton Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Cotton Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Cotton seeds need specific preparation before extraction. Cotton seeds have to be cleaned to remove foreign particles, de-linted to remove the lint’s, decorticated for removing the hard husk and the resultant meat obtained contains about 35% oil. The meat is subjected to mechanical pressing.

The first portion of the oil is removed during mechanical pressing, the resultant cake with residual oil content ranging from 8 to 12% is sent for solvent extraction. The solvent extraction of pre-pressed cotton seed cake is like normal solvent extraction of any pre-pressed cake.

Details available on request.

Soya Bean Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Soya bean Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Soya bean seeds contain 16 to 18% oil. Normally soya bean seeds are not subjected to mechanical pressing but the entire oil is extracted after preparation of the seeds in the solvent extraction plant.

Preparation of soya bean seeds includes seed cleaning, destining, cracking, husk separation (if required), cooking, flaking, expanding and drying. The prepared expanded soya flakes are sent for solvent extraction. Solvent extraction is carried out in the normal fashion. We do offer preparation equipment for soya bean seeds.

Details available on request.

Rice Bran Solvent Extraction Plants

Rice bran - Solvent Extraction Plants

Rice bran is by - product obtained during rice milling operation. This is golden reddish cuticle obtained after removal of the husk and during polishing of the rice.

Rice bran contains 16 to 22% oil and this oil is recovered by solvent extraction process. Rice bran being floury material it is essential to palletize the bran before being put to solvent extraction process. The solvent extraction of palletized rice bran is carried out in normal way.

Details available on request.

Shea Nut Solvent Extraction Plants

Shea nut - Solvent Extraction Plants

Shea nut contains special quality oil called shea butter. Shea nut at first is subjected to mechanical extraction with the help of screw presses. The resultant cake containing 14 to 16% oil (butter) is subjected to solvent extraction.

The preparation required is cooking and flaking

Details available on request.

Sal Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Sal Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Sal fat is a good cocoa butter substitute. The fat content of the sal seed is 16 to 18% , the oil is recovered by direct solvent extraction process. The seeds are subjected to cracking, cooking and flaking prior to solvent extraction.

Details available on request.

Canola / Rape Seed Solvent Extraction Plants

Canola / Rape Seed - Solvent Extraction Plants

Canola / Rape seeds contains more than 45% oil. The major oil is recovered by mechanical pressing in screw presses. The seeds are subjected either to pre-pressing in screw presses leaving left over residual oil in the cake in the range of 16 to 20% or the seeds are subjected to full pressing in which case oil left over has residual oil in the cake ranging between 8 to 10%. The cake is subjected to solvent extraction for recovery of the residual oil. It is subjected to mechanical pressing & then to solvent extraction for recovery of the oil.

Minor Oil Seeds Solvent Extraction Plants

Minor Oil seeds - Solvent Extraction Plants

Oil is recovered from less known, wild forest product oil seeds like Neem seeds, Mahua seeds, Karanj seed and lot of varieties of seeds by solvent extraction process.

 
  Vegetable Oil refinery

Vegetable oils are an essential ingredient for human diet. No food worth taste could be prepared without use of vegetable oils. Depending on Geographical locations different varieties of oils are popular in different region. Nature has given distinct individual characteristics to all vegetable oils.

The simplest and age-old method of obtaining edible vegetable oil has been simple mechanical extraction. The oil is squeezed out from oil seeds by applying mechanical pressure. The common equipment used now a daysis Screw Press.

Peanuts i.e. Ground Nuts, Copra, Sunflower Seed, Palm Kernal, Canola seed i.e. rape seed or mustards seed yields major oil through screw presses and in majority of the cases the oil obtained can be and is being used directly as edible oil.

However to recover the left over oil after mechanical extraction from prepressed cakes and for recovery of oil from low oil content seeds like soyabean, cotton seed etc., Solvent Extraction (Solvent Extractions, com ) is process adopted.

Since normal Hexane a petroleum bye product is used to extract the oil, refining of oil is compulsory before using it for human consumption.
