Differences: Mustard Oil, Canola Oil, Rapeseed Oil

Referring to mustard oil, many people are easy confuse it with canola and rapeseed oil. The flowers of these plants are all bright yellow. These oils all below to the cabbage or mustard family (Brassicaceae /Cruciferae), but are not the same oil. Here is a brief introduction.

  • Mustard Oil

Extracted or Pressed from mustard seeds. It comes in 3 types: edible veggie oil (screw pressed), non-edible essential oil (distilled). Edible mustard oil is used more often in India cooking. Mustard plant is much more robust than rape plant. It is more resistant to bad climates especially heat and drought.

Rapeseed is very similar to mustard oil. Some people even think of them as the same oilseed crop. It is the 3rd most important oilseed crops of the world, ranked after soybean and palm oil. View more about equipment for rapeseed oil extraction >>

  • Canola Oil (Modified Rapeseed Oil)

Canola is altered plant reared from mustard or rapeseed. It is also know as low erucic acid, low glucosinolates rapeseed oil. Its flavor is mild, making it more popular and healthy as cooking oil when compared with original rapeseed oil. It is also an ingredient for making soap and margarine, and as a lamp fuel (colza oil).

  • Could please elaborate the process as well as total cost of the small mustard oil making unit including area covered.Thanks
  • Thanks for your attention of our small scale mustard oil mill plant.
    The capacity of this plant is 10TPD oil press line+1TPD oil refinery line and the filling machine. Which includes the mustard seeds cleaning machine, cooker, oil press machine, oil filter, oil refinery equipments and the oil filling machine. The factory needs for this plant will be 18*8*6m. So, what is your raw material? And the capacity you need is? Then we can recommend you the suitable types for you. Besides, pls tell us where you will establish this plant and what is your suitable 3phase voltage.
  • Thanks for the prompt reply. I want to start new mustard oil mill in West Bengal, India. Since, the  Mustard seed is easily available in Local market & also high demand in the city.

    Power Supply available: 440V , 50Hz
    Raw Material: Mustard Seeds
    Capacity Needed: 5 Ton/Hr (Oil) (Series of small machine also acceptable)
    What is the difference between Hot Press & Cold Press? (Product Quality wise which one better)
  • For the oil press plant, the difference between cold press and hot press is whether there is the cooker before oil press machine. If has, it will be the hot press, if not will be the cold press. Crude oil from cold press will be better than the hot press, but the crude oil will be refined, for the refined oil, there won't have any difference. And hot press will increase the oil yield to get more oil.

    If you need 5ton/h mustard oil per hour, for daily capacity will be 120ton (For 24hrs), according to the oil content rate and oil yield of mustard seed, the capacity of this oil plant will be near 400MT per day. The capacity is too large for your market, for first business in this field, it will be better for you to start with small capacity, pls confirm.
  • Thanks for giving me best information. Yes, you are right,the capacity is more than my expectation. Actually we will run the machine for 8-10 hrs a day & capacity of 2 ton/hr is also acceptable. Please send me your quote along with best filter & spares. Please also provide me the catalogue (motor & machine) & brochure of the same. Thanks
  • For 2ton/h capacity, the daily capacity will be 50TPD, for this capacity, I recommend you to work 24hrs per day. Working several days then take two-three days for total maintenance. If you start and close the machines every day, it won't be cost-efficient.

    The total cost of the 50TPD mustard oil mill plant is USD260,000 approx FOB Qingdao. It contains 50TPD oil press related machines, 15TPD batch type refinery equipments. So, pls confirm whether the price is in your budget range, then I will make the proposal for you. For this plant, you will get near 15Ton oil per day. Maybe you can consider whether it can meet your demand or not. Also, this plant will need the steam boiler, pls confirm whether you can offer locally.
  • What's the function of cooker in mustard oil manufacturing plant?
  • The function of the cooker is to balance the temperature and moisture rate of raw materials, then it will be pressed at the best condition to get more oil more better pressed cakes. Generally, for large scale oil plant, cooker is the necessary part, if the capacity is small, you can use without cooker.
  • What's the Guarantee of your mustard oil machinery?
  • The guarantee of our equipment is 12months after machines delivery, if you need we also can send our engineers to install for you and train your worker until you can operate the plants smoothly.
