The Corn oil processing always starts with the Germ. The Germ is a part the corn plant called an embryo, which is recognizably different from the usual nutrients found in the endosperm. The endosperm is a tissue which is produced inside the seed of the plant. It protects the embryo and gives it nutrition. The amount of oil present in the gem is around 85 percent of all the oil found in the seed.

Set Up A Small Scale Corn Oil Production Line

Corn Oil Production can be done on a small scale there are machinery and equipment that is easy to put together, to process the corn to get a considerable amount of oil output. This means the corn oil production on a small scale will only take up to 3 people to operate the entire line. Using this production on a smaller scale allow reduced labour and low cost to operate.

Corn Oill Proudction

There are a few steps in the corn oil production line.  Firstly, before enter the oil extraction process, the corn kernels have to be dehulled, which is removing the chaff off the seed, then the corn kernels will be crushed to break apart the cell walls. After the crushing have take place it has to be soaked in acidic water with sulphur dioxide, which is a colourless gas, doing this makes the germ to separate from the seed.After colleting the corn germs, the next part in corn oil production line is for the corn germ to be boiled off and filtered. During this process the steam is only produced at a small volume of around 3 percent of the oil, it is then absorbed by other gums or lecithin. (Lecithin is a fat that is essential for the body). After absorbing has taken place, the corn becomes dense enough to be removed a centrifugation process. If alkali degumming process is used, the corn ends up in clay form and sold as soap. Another step in the corn oil production is that the corn oil is now bleached and the clay has been initiated with a type of acid to remove any metals. The clay then absorbs the color pigment, the metal ions and residual soap products from the oil. The clay can then separate the oil by filtration. (Related article: Cooking Oil  Refining Plant)
