Process of soybean oil extraction

Soybean is the most common oil seed in the world, usually soybean oil extraction is one time oil extraction, that is, soybean seeds goes directly to oil extraction after soybean pretreatment without pressing, because soybean oil contain is low.

After pretreatment, flaked soybean will go to oil extractor to extract oil with solvent N-hexane . After oil extractor, we will get mixed oil and wet meal. Solvent will be evaporated from mixed oil through evaporators and cooled down inside condensers. And wet meal will be dried inside desolventizer and solvent is transforming into gas and evaporated.
