Common Vegetable Oil Processing Machinery for Oil Mill Plant


  1. Cleaning: It usually begins by cleaning of the seeds before taking them to the crushing plant.
  2. De-husking: The next process is de-husking whereby the husks are removed from the oil rich fibre. This is usually done by machines called husk separators.
  3. Flaking: After de-husking, the oil rich fibre undergoes another process where it is pressed between two rollers. These rollers cause flaking of the fibres hence increasing the surface area.
  4. Cooking: The next process is conditioning where the flaked material is heated to a temperature of 90 degrees Celsius by use of steam cooking machine. This makes the oil seeds to expand.
  5. Oil Pressing: The conditioned material undergoes another process where it is fed through oil pressing equipment which crush it until about 50% of the oil is produced. This oilcake which is produced by this method contains about half of the oil that it initially contained.
  6. Solvent Extraction: The next process is transportation of the oilcake to hexane solvent extraction plant a solvent which is hexane is used to dissolve the oil and recover the remaining 50% of the oil. The solvent is sprayed on the oilcake which makes the oil to dissolve in the solvent. After this, the mixture of oil and hexane is separated by evaporation and the hexane is recycled for reuse. This oil is then mixed with the other 505 produced by crushing.
  7. Filtering and Storage: The oil is filtered and pumped to storage tubes and this oil is called crude oil. The crude undergoes other refinement process to make it edible and suitable for food industry. The refinement aims at removing unwanted substances such as soap, fatty acids, wax, glue and smells from the oil.
