it crushes oil seeds and produces best quality cooking oil and cake. It is the central part of the whole extraction plant.
oil expeller chamber size 22'' x 4'' crushes about 150 kg oilseeds producing oil and oil cake. Oil falls down in the small rectangular tank which is kept below the expeller and oil cake comes out from another side. Generally, for oil seeds having oil content more than 25% are crushed twice in the expeller for maximum recovery. During the first crushing thickness of cake is kept about 8~10 mm. And during the second crushing thickness of cake is kept about 3~4 mm.
cooking kettle is mounted on the expeller and it’s driven by expeller. It heats and cooks the oil seeds by outer steam from the boiler or by electricity. A little steam / water is also added to the oil seeds to increase moisture content to optimum level. Which makes the crushing process easy and smooth
cooking kettle has 3 functions, 1. It can hold 40 kg seeds and heated up by steam so that seeds get moisturized till the center of the seed due to steam pressure which is responsible for optimum oil extraction from the seeds.
2. You can increase or reduce flow of seeds going to the expeller so feeding control.
3. Seeds will fall on the magnet before entering the expeller which will save expeller from any iron parts to get damaged as iron part will stick to the magnet. This is an excellent facility with cooking kettle.
