What are the advantages of solvent extraction method? Why do engineers usually advise to use solvent extraction method when the input capacity more than 30 tons per day? According to the explain of our engineers, solvent extraction method has three advantages.
Edible oil solvent extraction plant
1. Low production cost
Comparing with pressing method, solvent extraction method is more mechanized and the whole line is automatic to working. So operators needed in edible oil solvent extraction plant is much less than thant in edible oil pressing plant. Meanwhile, energy consumption for solvent extraction method is also much less than pressing method.
2. Low oil residue in meal
In pressing, it is impossible to destroy oil seeds cells completely. Meanwhile, the temperature and pressure when pressing is limited, which will remain 5-12% oil in the oil cakes. However, the residual oil rate of solvent extraction method can be less than 1%, so you can use solvent to extract more oil from oil pressed cakes.
3. Get good quality meal which can be as animal feed
Comparing with pressing, solvent extraction method is operated in low temperature, which can protect meals from protein degenerating. This is a very important factor influenced whether the meals can be used as animal feed. So, if you want to get high quality meals, the solvent extraction method is the most suitable for you.
Above are the explanation about the advantages of solvent extraction method. Have you understood? Doing Company's engineers are very professional in designing the edible oil solvent extraction plant. If you want to produce edible oil through solvent extraction method, please feel free to contact us.
