Main machines for 20T/D sunflower oil production line

There are mainly there processing steps in sunflower oil production: Pre-cook —- Extract — Refine.

1. Sunflower seed roasting machine</strong

In hot press oil production, it’s necessary to pre-heat sunflower seed for high oil extraction rate. Shelled sunflower seeds have special nuts aromatic smell after roasted. Hot pressed sunflower oil are easy to store and full of original nut flavor.

2. Sunflower seeds automatic oil press

Adopting mechanical pressing methods, sunflower seeds are pressed in fully squeezing action. Without any chemical solvent, pressed sunflower oil has kept the original nuts flavor.

3. 8T/D Sunflower oil refining plant

As the oil extraction rate is lower than peanut, the capacity of refining machines will differ too. To 20t raw sunflower seeds, a 8T/D oil refining plant is enough. Sunflower oil processed by automatic oil press are crude oil filled with pectin(protein, phospholipid) and free fatty acid. Only processed by refining machines can sunflower oil have the best taste.
