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 bye product.
The plant is designed to
extract oil directly from oil seed containing less than 20%
oil like soyabean after flaking or it extracts oils from prepressed
or fully pressed cake of seeds containing more than 20% oil
like sunflower, peanuts, cotton seed, palm kernel, canola,
copra, castor and variety of other materials.
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 more than three decades.
extractor is horizontal in construction a concept with universal
acceptance, infact 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 condensors
and vent air stripping system is provided.
Special preparatory equipments are recommended
to suit individual characteristics of raw materials.
