There are two main types of sunflower seeds: edible sunflower seeds and black oil sunflower seeds. Edible sunflower seeds have low oil content and are not plump enough, so they are not suitable for oil extraction. The black oil sunflower seeds have high oil content, and the seeds are small and plump, so they are suitable for oil extraction. Below, the editor of Henan Benteng Machinery will take you to learn more about the entire sunflower oil production process.
What are the production methods of sunflower seeds?
The sunflower oil production mainly has two methods: pressing and leaching. The production of sunflower oil using the pressing method requires cleaning, shelling, steaming, pressing, filtering, etc., and then physical pressing with an oil press. The leaching method uses oil and solvents that are compatible principle, method of extracting sunflower oil from sunflower oil cake.
1. Sunflower oil is produced from sunflower seeds by pressing, which initially requires the use of magnetic separators. Vibrating screens and destoners to clean the sunflower seeds to remove impurities from the oil.
2.The sunflower seeds are then dehulled using a shredder and kernel-hull separation is performed using a kernel-hull separation sieve. Sunflower seed shells will affect the normal operation of the oil press, causing machine wear. It can also absorb part of the oil, causing the loss of oil and reducing the oil yield.
3.Before pressing, the most important step is to press and steam the sunflower seeds with a press and a steamer. Embryo pressing can completely change the internal structure of sunflower seeds, shorten the oil path, and speed up the oil output efficiency. Steaming and frying can adjust the temperature and moisture of sunflower seeds to achieve the best conditions for pressing.
4.Pressing sunflower oil. After the above steps are completed, the sunflower oil press can be used to produce sunflower oil from the sunflower seeds.
The main process of sunflower oil making includes selection, frying, pressing, filtering, and refining sunflower oil. This requires a complete sunflower oil production line to complete. Benteng Machinery has been engaged in the production of sunflower seed oil presses for more than 20 years. And it is a professional oil press manufacturer in China.
