In recent years the demand for sunflower oil has increased drastically. And why not? Sunflower oil is preferred throughout the world for its attractive color, light flavour, high smoke point and rich unsaturated fatty acids. With our sunflower oil processing plant, you can capitalise on this demand. How? lt’s easier than you might think. (Read more: coconut oil processing machines for sale >>)

Set Up a Sunflower Oil Processing Plant

The process begins with cleaning. Magnets are used in order to remove any trace metal, and the seeds are scrubbed of any foreign matter. If the moisture content of the seeds is too high it will have an adverse effect on the sunflower oil produced, so we dehull. The seeds are cracked by a pneumatic or centrifugal sheller, and the result is winnowed to separate kernel from hull. (Read more: oilseed preprocessing machines >>)

Sunflower Oil Pressing

Once this is done, we can begin to think about oil expelling. We can increase the surface area by grinding the sunflower seeds into a coarse meal, using mechanised hammer mills. This meal is then heated to aid oil extraction, a process that can sometimes release impurities. These are removed to ensure that the oil is edible. The mixture is then fed into a sunflower oil pressing equipment. Pressure is slowly increased as the mixture passes through a slotted barrel, eventually reaching as high as 200,000 kilopascals in an attempt to extract and capture as much oil as possible.

Sunflower Oil Refinery

Once it has been squeezed through the slots, it can be collected and refined in oil refinery plant. This involves heating the oil to between 40oC and 85 oC and mixing it with an alkaline substance such as sodium hydroxide or sodium carbonate. Together with this additive, the undesired fatty acids form a soapy substance that is then removed using centrifugal force. The oil is cleaned to remove any traces and dried. It is then degummed, the oil treated with acidic water or steam to remove hosphatides. Once again, centrifugal force is used to remove any dregs.

Oil that will be used for cooking is then bleached by filtering it through activated clay or fuller’s earth, substances which can absorb pigmented materials from the oil. Oils that will be refrigerated are filtered to remove waxes. The final step is deodorising the oil. The oil is placed in a vacuum at 225C to 250C, over which steam is passed to distill any odor or volatile components. A tiny amount of citric acid might also be added to increase the oil's shelf life. Once this is complete, the finished oil can be packed and shipped to shelves across the world.
