The Cost of Establishing Cottonseed Oil Mill Plant

You should know that the project investment depends on various factors including production output, equipment selection, factory layout and degree of automation. 

Here are some references for you:

The equipment cost of 5ton per day small cotton seed oil manufacturing workshop is about $8000. The larger the output, the greater the difference of investment cost between different project design.

Tips for Cottonseed Oil Extraction Equipment Selection

There are three methods for producing cottonseed oil. The first method is mechanical screw oil pressing, the second one is pre-pressing & solvent extraction, and the final third method is direct solvent extractionAll the processes are done by the use of different cottonseed oil mill machinery.

Cottonseed Oil Extraction Process

Cotton Seed Oil Extraction and Refinery Process

When setting up a complete cottonseed oil extraction plant, you must take process design and equipment selection into account. It is important to consider the advantages and disadvantages of the processing technology and equipment. To make a comprehensive judgment and prevent unnecessary waste of resources, the process parameters and equipment type selection must be according to the oilseeds characteristics, production output, equipment characteristics, factory situation, etc. It is also necessary to consider whether the existing equipment can be used in your cottonseed oil mill plant to increase the utilization rate of equipment and reduce the repeated investment.

Cotton Seed Pre-processing Equipment

cotton seed processing

The performance of pre-processing equipment determines the core competitiveness of cottonseed oil factory or company. Therefore, when setting up production line of cottonseed oil, be sure to pay great attention to cottonseed pretreatment section.

  • Cottonseed Sheller
Tooth roller sheller, disc sheller, blade sheller are the 3 common types for cottonseed dehulling machine. The advantages of disc shelling machine are more obvious and it is the best choice for cottonseed processing.
  1. Less affected by cottonseed moisture.
  2. Easy maintenance.
  3. Good adaptability to different oilseeds.
  4. High hulling efficiency and effect (the shelling rate can reach 98% when the moisture is less than 12%).
  5. Cotton seed shells are in good condition, better for selling. The main application of cotton shells is to cultivate strains of bacteria for the cultivation of mushrooms or other.
  • Kernel & Shell Separation Screen

With proper equipment for separation, the recovery rate can reach 98%. After separation, there is almost no kernel left in the shells. Truly achieves zero waste. The equipment investment can recover in half a year.

Flaking Machine: The purpose of flaking is to damage the oilseed cell structure, increase the surface area, maximize the consistency of the material, so as to improve the oil extraction efficiency. Therefore, flaking machine is necessary equipment for industrial scale cottonseed oil production.

  • Cottonseed Cooking Machine

The so-called cooking of oilseeds refers to the process in which the seeds are treated by wetting, heating, steaming and frying. The purpose is:

  1. Destroy the cell structure, making it easy for oil expelling.  
  2. Make the phospholipid to absorb water and expand, reduce the solubility of phospholipids in crude oil and increasing oil yield and quality.
  3. Denature the protein. The greater the degree of protein denaturation, the higher the oil yield.
  4. Combine gossypol with protein.

Steaming cooker and heat conduction oil furnace are the two common equipment for this process. Both heating methods have advantages and disadvantages. Welcome to contact us for equipment details and price list.

Cottonseed Oil Expeller Press

Our cottonseed oil expeller press machine has a variety of models. Feel free to contact us, our service team will help you choose the most appropriate one depending on your situation and requirement.

Generally, for commercial cotton seed oil mill, with enough factory space, multiple oil presses are recommended project plan, to improve the equipment operation rate and reduce the factory running cost. And also prevent the risk of production stop when one oil press went wrong. For cottonseed solvent extraction plant, the residual oil in the cottonseed meal should be controlled at less than 1%, so as to reduce the relieve the pressure of solvent extraction workshop. Oil should be produced as much as possible in the oil pressing or expelling process, making the residual oil rate in cotton seed cake less than 12%.

  • Settling / Clarification Tank, and Oil Filtering Machine

The purpose of oil clarification and oil filtering is to reduce the impurity content in crude cottonseed oil, laying a solid foundation for improving the quality of refined oil in oil refinery. The choice of clarification tank does not have many requirements. Customize the settling tank according to your site and production capacity. Referring to oil filtering, there are plate and frame filter, vertical blade filter, horizontal blade filter and so on. At present, the vertical blade filter is the most common used type in small to medium scale edible oil refinery plant, and horizontal blade filter press is widely used in large scale oil processing plants. The selection of the filter must be based on impurity content of crude oil, and oil refining capacity.

Cottonseed Oil Refining and Fractionation

When​ producing advanced edible cottonseed oil, the oil must be processed by refining and winterization / fractionation. Besides, the utilization of solid fat after separation should also be considered in your business plan. This is one of our edible cottonseed oil refining project we designed and built in Afghanistan. Take this for reference! You are also welcome to contact us for customized projects and cost deteails.

Cottonseed Oil Production

Cottonseed oil has clear and light golden color and quite a mild taste (the color degree depends on the amount of refining). It is also seen as standard for measuring odor and flavor of other edible oils. India has the highest cottonseed oil production ranks in world market-1,277.00MT, because cotton is one of the most crucial commercial crops in India. The second and third places in Cottonseed oil production take China and Pakistan, accordingly producing 1,048.00MT and 510.00MT.

Major Cottonseed Oil Producing Countries

Cottonseed includes hull and kernel, as hull contains fibers and linters, and the kernel is full of protein, carbohydrate, vitamins, minerals and sterols. Cotton seed oil is one of the most unsaturated edible oils. Though cotton cultivation dates back to several centuries, the cottonseed oil production is relatively new branch in world industry. In 1793 the first oil processing plant emerges, but it was only in the twentieth century that it was utilized for commercial purposes. Nowadays, cottonseed oil takes the fifth place in all edible oils.

Wide Application of Cotton Seed Oil

Cottonseed oil is an extracted from the seeds of different cotton plants. These plants are mainly grown for cotton fiber, animal feed or oil. They have the same structure as those of sunflower seeds. Cottonseed oil is of light golden color with mild taste, but generally the color of the oil depends on the degree of its refining. Cottonseed oil is primarily used in cuisine for making mayonnaise or as a salad addition. Being cheaper than olive or canola oil, cottonseed oil is used as frying oil in many restaurants and locations of food service. Cottonseed oil mill machinery is used for crushing cottonseed oil seeds thus making it useful for culinary purposes. (Read more: How to Build a Sunflower Oil Processing Plant?)

Many of us use cottonseed oil for culinary purposes, but not everyone is aware of the benefits of cottonseed oil. Due to the high amount of antioxidants, which are essential for good health, cottonseed oil is necessary product for our health. It is rich in vitamin E and low in cholesterol. It is not heavy oil that is the reason it is mostly preferred for baking or preparing food. However, overusing cottonseed oil can have negative effects as it is high-calorie edible oil and contains over 120 calories.
