Should Sunflower Seeds be Shelled before Oil Pressing?

In recent years, the most popular processing method of edible sunflower oil is mechanical oil pressing and cold pressing. Many customers are always wondering should the sunflower seed be shelled before oil extraction process. Actually, this is decided by the request of customers.

  • Make Oil without Shelling

For small scale sunflower oil production line with capacity less than 20T/D, the seeds can be expelled in oil press with shell. This process is very common in small scale oil extraction workshop or family oil milling business. Surely, the shelling process can be included for small scale production line if the customer request.

  • Make Oil after Shelling

For industrial scale edible oil mill plant with daily capacity more than 20 tons, sunflower seed dehulling machine is necessary. The main process of fully scale sunflower oil processing plant is shelling, pre-pressing, solvent extraction, oil refining and oil filling. (Extract oil after dehulling can reduce the wax content of final oil.)
