Mechanical Extraction

Oil seeds are properly cleaned and destoned before processing. They are then subjected to size disintegration/flaking to achieve superior efficiency of the machine. Once disintegrated the seeds are cooked, so the oil cells are properly tempered to easily expel the oil. Cooked seeds are mechanically pressed in the expeller and oil is extracted with some amount of fines. This oil is then filtered via the vibro separator and filter press for clear oil output. The entire operation, control and supervision of the plant can be handled with minimal operating staff.

Suitable for all types of edible and non-edible oil seeds, Kumar’s expellers are of sturdy construction, low investment and easy to install. They offer maximum oil yield at low operating costs.
