Process Flow Chart of Small Scale Solvent Extraction Plant:
Feeding (Pre-pressed Oil Cake) → Solvent Extracting (hexane) → Pressing → Desolventizing (steaming) → Crude Oil and Desolventized Oil Meal

The technological process of tank group oil extractor machine mainly includes feeding, extraction, pressing and desolventizing. It is widely used to process oil bearing materials with large powder size and poor solvent permeability, or for the extraction of special material components.

The quality of oil extraction machine / plant directly influences the key economic and technical indexes of the oil production business. It is necessary to buy the right equipment from a reliable solvent extraction machine supplier or manufacturer, so as to ensure the stability of your oil milling workshop, reduce the production cost and ensure the production safety.

Highlights of Tank Group Cotton Oil Machine / Plant

  • Small Investment, high return on investment;
  • Simple structure, easy to operate;
  • Since each tank is a single batch extractor, you don’t have to stop the whole production line for partial maintenance.
  • Less energy consumption (the installed capacity of a 10 tons per day oil mill workshop is less than 20KW)
  • Wide application: Suitable to process various oilseeds. 
  • Low solvent consumption: Low production cost.

Structure Introduction - Tank Group Small Oil Extraction Plant

Tank Group organic solvent extraction machine generally consists of three or more extracting tanks or pots. Each batch extractor is a cylindrical container with a feeding tube on the top and a meal outlet at the bottom. All the leaching tanks form a countercurrent oil extraction process.

Principle of Hexane Solvent Extraction Machine / Plant

Solvent Extracting Process: Solvent extraction is one of the most advanced method for oil mills. Based on principle of similitude, using hexane as solvent, through soaking or spraying to contact with the oil cake and extract the oil out. The extracted oil is a mixture of oil and solvent, called mixed oil.

Desolventizing Process: Remove the solvent from the oil mixture and oil meal by evaporation, since the boiling point of oil and solvent is different. Then the solvent steam will be recycled through condensation for reuse. The content of wet oil meal can be reduced to less than 5%, and the steam consumption very low.

Global Market Overview of Cottonseed Oil Industry

cottonseed oil processing industry
CottonSeed Oil Processing Industry


After removing the lint from Unginned cotton, cotton-seed can be obtained. Cottonseed has a hard brown shell on the outside, and varies in shape and size from species to species. The oil content of cotton seed is up to 35%~45%. The protein content is about 39%.

Cotton seed oil can be generally divided into expeller-pressed oil, solvent extracted oil, crude oil and refined cottonseed oil. Cottonseed oil is dark red in color, and it is edible after refining. It contains a lot of essential fatty acids for human consumption, and it is also good to be mixed with animal fats.

Cottonseed Oil Industry & Global Trend

Now let’s have a look at the cottonseed oil production industry and global trend. Cotton seed oil making is one of the HOT applications of cotton by-product. In 2019, the global cottonseed oil output was 4476 million tons, up by 3.8% compared with the same period last year, and the global volume of expeller-pressed cottonseed oil was 338,800 tons, an increase of 2.7% over the same period last year. Besides, the global import volume of cotton seed oil is 0.1 million tons and the global export volume is 0.11 million tons. 

global cottonseed oil production and consumption

Cotton oil contain a large number of essential fatty acids for human body. The content of linoleic acid in cottonseed oil is particularly high, which can effectively inhibit the rise of cholesterol in blood and maintain human health.

global cotton seed production and oil processing yield

With the elimination of the negative perception of cottonseed oil (expeller pressed and solvent extracted), the introduction of a series of national policies to support domestic oil and the promotion of the grain and oil industry, cottonseed oil industry will surely have a good development prospect!

Global Distribution of Cotton Cultivation & Major Producer Countries

Uzbekistan, India, China, Pakistan are the major producer Countries of cotton crop, which totally accounts for almost 65% of global production, followed by Australia, Brazil, America, Turnkey, Burkina Faso, and Myanmar. From 2007 to 2020, Australia is the country with the most notable growth rate of cotton seed oil production. 

Uzbekistan is also a major producer of cotton. The domestic cotton consumption is increasing each year with new investments. The Government of Uzbekistan actively encourage and promote cotton production for the export market. To support cotton producers, the Uzbek government provides subsidized fertilizers and seed, and almost free irrigation.
