As manufacturer of peanut oil extraction plant, we can offer whole line or parts of peanut oil extraction plant with general capacity from 10TPD to 2000TPD. For special capacity, our engineers can also help you design and install workshop according to your capacity and requirements.
In order to improve oil yeild rate and get high quality peanut oil, the peanut oil extraction plant should consist following processes: pretreatment, prepressing, solvent extraction and refining.
Here is a brief introduction of peanut oil extraction plant:
Ⅰ、Pretreatment section of the peanut oil extraction plant
Pretreatment section is to remove the impurities in the raw material and change its structural characteristics, in order to make it suit the requirements of different oil producing process. Oil content of peanut kernel reaches 44%-45%, not suitable for direct solvent extraction; prepressing becomes important to peanut oil extraction plant.

1> Cleaning :
Machines needed in cleaning include magnetic separator, cleaning seive, winnowing machine, etc, removing mechanical impurities such as soild, iron impurities, sick seeds, etc. Cleaning prevents following equipments from demage and increases oil yeild as an essential part pf peanut oil extraction plant.
2> Husking :
The main ingredients of peanut shells is fiber, wich would hinder peanut oil extraction . Husking separates hulls from peanuts to improve the oil yielding rate, crude oil quality and meal quality.
Peanut kernel is big in size; crushing machine/crusher breaks peanut kernel to smaller pieces to impove pressing effect.
Flaking damages oil cells, increases oil surface, and shortens the oil outflowing distance, which benefits oil extraction and impoves cooking efficiency.
This process can improve prepressing oil yield rate and meal quality, and also adjust the moisture, temperature and plasticity of the flake.
To squeeze out part of peanut oil, and improve extracting efficiency.
To extract the oil in the cake by solvent, the general solvent is 6# extraction solvent oil or commercial hexane.
To remove and recover the solvent in the meal; Dry and cool down the meal at the same time.
3>Evaporating and stripping:
Heating the the miscella by indirect steam, so that can vaporize the solvent and concentrate the miscella.
