Seed oils are extracted from the seeds of sunflower, cotton, soy bean, and rape seeds and so on. Different seed oil press machines are used to extract the oil from the seeds.Generally the oil press machine has a feeder in which the seeds are loaded and then crushed using a pressing cage. The pressing cage can be adjusted with the help of a screw shaft. The selection of good seeds will yield a good amount of oil. For a successful process in yielding the oil, you need to check whether the seeds are dry, clean and warm. Sunflower seeds which are slightly damp should not be pressed until it has been dried under sunlight or using a boiler.
You can easily differentiate between a hard seed and a soft seed by trying to peel off the shell. Hard seed shells are not so easy to peel off whereas the softer seed shells can be peeled off with the help of our fingers. The pressure exerted on the seeds should be adjusted perfectly in order to achieve the desired output. The YZS series oil screw press is the latest oilseed processing machine. For canola seeds to be processed a mild heating treatment is given at the beginning and then moisture is applied to improve the oil extraction. All kind of oils are finally purified after the extraction so that the quality of the oil is high.
Vegetable oils are extracted from the vegetable sources and it is mainly used for human consumption in the form of food products. The modern way of extracting the vegetable oil is by using solvent extracts. Anyway, vegetable oil press is mainly used to extracts oils from the raw vegetable resources by crushing those resources into the machine. This technique is mostly adopted by the upcoming industrial oils, who extract oil from soybeans and corn. The other way which is predominantly followed by many is by physical extraction which doesn’t require any solvent extracts. The vegetable oils can be derived from the following sources
- Sunflower seed
Soybean, corn, sunflower oil etc. contains omega – 6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, so if it is consumed higher, then it might result in some diseases whereas the oils like coconut, palm oils are high in saturated fatty acids which can be consumed without much worries.
Different vegetable oil press machines will have different specifications and the press worms in size and length, so it needs to be set accordingly to get the oil squeezed out properly. Some automatic oil press machines needs the press chamber, press screw and the press rings to be pre-heated since the oil need to be processed at a certain temperature
Oils can be prepared from home by having the required equipment which can extract the oil from seeds and nuts.
Oil presses for home equipment are really simple and easy to use. They won’t take up much space, not much power is needed and you can achieve a good quality of oils which are away from the chemicals. It gives you the freshly prepared oil by just pressing the seeds or nuts by means of a machine. Some oils which are being extracted can be used for lighting up lamps. Oil pressesfor home are not usually welcomed by most people but it is a safe way of getting edible oils with high quality.
The residue which is left after the oil is being extracted from the seeds can be used as feed for animals. Since the oil is being prepared from homes, the facilities are limited and hence we need an extra effort in cleaning and making the oil perfect. Initially the oil will be bitter in taste and cloudy so it requires some cleaning process. Equal amount of warm water should be taken along with the oil inside a container with the nozzle at the bottom. Mix it well and leave the water to settle down. Draw off the water and repeat it for two to three times so that the oil which is left out in the container is free from impurities.
Oils are extracted from machines by pressing the seeds or nuts with a desired pressure on it. It is really hard to extract oils without the use of oil press machines. There are several oil presses for sale in the market, so purchasing the right machine can make you to deliver with a good output range. The capacity of each oil press machines varies and the price varies accordingly. A small scale oil press can produce around 1 to 5 ton/ day which is relatively less when compared with the integrated oil presses which can produce a turnaround of about 10 to 150 ton/day. Oil presses for sale is done by limited companies or a person but the oil pressing machines are not being the latest versions. Only simple and easy uses of oil pressing equipments are mostly for sale rather than the newest equipments.
The advanced oil pressing equipments does not require man power to a greater extent. Once the seeds are locked inside the machine, the temperature and pressure is set to a predefined value. Wait till the seeds are crushed and oil is being extracted to a filter which obviously takes away the impurities. The filtered oil is obtained within few minutes and with good quality. Oil press machines takes less time to extract oils and thus a large amount of oil can be obtained in a day. Spiral type oil presses for sale can be purchased for homes that prefer to extract cooking oils and biodiesel oils. Oil presses are mostly in use for companies which require large production of oils rather than at homes.
Oil is a semi-thick liquid substance which can be extracted from various resources like fruits, nuts and seeds. Oil is not soluble in water but it can mix with other oils and organic solvents to form a substance like soaps which are used for washing purpose. Throughout the universe, oil forms the base for all substances, whether it’s for cooking or for lubrication or for any other purpose, oil is being used up quite significantly which makes oil as a valuable product and always in demand for usage. Sunflower oil and olive oil are mostly used for cooking purposes and one might wonder how these oils are extracted from their seeds.
The oils are extracted by using the specific machines which are called as “Oil Presses”. There are certain measures which should be noted, before processing the seeds for extraction through the machines. Seeds and nuts might have stones and sand on it, which desires to be removed with the help of water and then it has to be dried. These seeds should be stored in the ventilated rooms with weather proof and safeguarded against the insects. After these precautionary measures, the seeds are then sent to the Oil Presses machines for the extraction of oil from the raw materials. Basically, extraction of oil can be done in three ways – solvent extraction, hot processing or by cold processing.
Small scale industries do not prefer solvent extraction method since the cost and risk involved in processing is very high. YZS series, YZX series, YZS automatic series machines are mainly used for the extraction. The capacity and the oil output rate depends on the machines which are being used for the extraction and the power consumed also differs accordingly. The YZS automatic series machines have heating, expelling and filtering equipments for producing high quality oil. Oil Presses will automatically adjust the processing temperature of the seeds which are being grinded and the vacuum filer inside it produces the purification of oil for a better result.
