Please remember the few points before you start your own cottonseed oil refinery plant:

  • Conduct thorough research on the what you require for oil manufacturing business in terms of market size, capital and trends.
  • Know your competitors.
  • Make a business plan and write down your planned location, finances and target market.
  • Learn about the rules and regulations.
  • Employ candidates those who are experienced in the cooking oil manufacturing process

Risk factors of Cottonseed Oil Refinery Plant

  • Manufacturing of cottonseed oil requires particular storage climate conditions. This heating criteria should be maintained during the entire transport chain.
  • The tanks that are needed for transporting cottonseed oils must be completely dry.
  • There should be no ventilation under any circumstances
  • Cottonseed oil exhibitions 3rd order biotic activity.
  • Though the respiration processes of cottonseed oil are suspended, microbial, biochemical and other decomposition processes still proceed. These decomposition processes must be kept at a low level.
  • The gases are required to be measured before anyone enters the empty tank as oxidation processes may result in a dangerous shortage of O2.
  • The cottonseed oil has a high possibility to ignite spontaneously if it comes in touch with sawdust or material residues.
  • Cottonseed oil has a mild odor when packed, but gradually its odor becomes acrid and unpleasant.
  • Leaking oils can lead to huge contamination by ferrous and rust particles and water.
  • Dear Sir,
    I am looking for a full line machineries process for the extraction of cottonseed oil.
    The incoming product is cottonseed and outgoing products are:
    - Cooking oil
    - The cake
    - The animal feed
    - The poultry feed.
    Thank you for your quick response.
  • Glad to receive your inquiry.  Pls tell me the capacity of the cottonseed oil plant you need. May I know whether your cottonseed has the fiber or not, you'd better send me some pictures of your raw materials, so I will know whether you need the pretreatment.
  • Our cottonseed has 8% fiber. We would like process 300 to 400 Tons per day. Oil rate in cottonseed is about 18% to 22%.
  • Pls send me the pictures of your cottonseeds, because I just can't judge whether you should delint before dehulling the shell based your "8% fiber", thank you for your understanding. According to your capacity, it's 300-400tons per day, it means 90000-120000tons per year, it's quite large capacity, to make the most precise proposal for you, pls confirm the capacity for me again. The 18%-22% oil rate is the cottonseed with shell, for your capacity, to get more oil you should dehull the cottonseed before pressing. The oil rate of the cottonseed kernel is 34%-38%.
  • I have send you our cotton seed pictures through email, please advise on cotton seed oil mill factory. 
  • According to your pictures, before pressing you should take the pretreatments for your cottonseeds, one is delinting, the other is dehulling. And for your capacity, 300tons per day, you have two choices, one is pressing process, the other is prepressing+solvent extraction process.  So, I need you to confirm two points, on is whether you need we to offer the delinting machines and the dehulling machines; the other is whether you want to take pressing process or the solvent extraction process.

    You know making one precise proposal will take much time, so hope to get your confirmed information soon.
  • Can you give me the advantages of  pressing and solvent extraction process. I am a producer of cotton seed and now I want to do the oil processing. We thank you for the best proposals.
  • According to your capacity and the condition of your raw materials, after delinting you will get near 250T cottonseeds with shell; then dehulling, after dehulling, you will get near 200T cottonseeds without shell. We can offer the equipments you need, but making one precise proporsal will take some time. So, pls be patient, thank you for your understanding.

    The solvent extraction process is to use the organic solvent to extract oil from the oil seeds, the press process is to use the mechanical pressure to press the oil from the oil seeds.  The two different points between "pressing process" and "solvent extraction process" are the oil yield and the cost. When taking the pressing process, the residual oil rate in the cakes will be near 6%-8%; when taking the solvent extraction process, the residual oil rate in the cakes will be lower than 1%. The cost of the solvent extraction is much higher than the press process.

    Since you don't have the idea about whether to choose the press process or the solvent extraction process , I will calculate the cost of the press process for your reference. Because the investment for the press process is low, and considering about the organic solvent used in the process, most of the current people prefer the oil produced under the press process. The cost details are included in the email attachment. So, pls check whether the cost can meet your budget request.
