What kind of oil and fat equipment need to be purchased to run a refined edible oil processing plant?

September 09, 2021

A complete oil production line can be divided into four parts, namely the pretreatment part, the squeezing/leaching part, the oil refining and the oil filling. These four parts are generally divided into four workshops, and the equipment required for each workshop is different. The following briefly introduces the role of the following four workshops in production and the equipment that each workshop needs to purchase. 

1. Pretreatment workshop

The pretreatment workshop is to clean the oil crops to be processed (such as pebbles, dust attached to the surface of the oil, other impurities, moldy particles), and then the oil is dehulled, crushed, softened, rolled embryos, and steamed. Processing makes it more convenient to make oil in the subsequent pressing or leaching process.

The pretreatment equipment includes screening machines, crushers, softeners, magnetic separators, vibrating screens, stone removal machines, rolling mills, steaming and frying pans and other pretreatment equipment. Choose the appropriate equipment according to the type of oil when purchasing.

2. Press workshop/leaching workshop

According to the different types and properties of the oil, the oil-making process is selected, which is generally divided into the pressing method, the leaching method, and the pre-pressing leaching method.

The squeezing method is a physical squeezing method that uses oil press equipment to squeeze grease from the oil by mechanical external force.

The leaching method is a chemical leaching method that uses leaching equipment and solvents to dissolve and extract the grease in the oil.

The pre-expression extraction method combines the two methods, which can increase the oil yield, reduce the oil content in the cake, improve the quality of the cake, and increase the production efficiency.

According to different processes, choose to buy oil press or leaching equipment.

3. Refining workshop

The refining workshop uses oil refining equipment to refine the crude oil produced in the previous workshop to remove the fiber, phospholipids, pigments, free fatty acids, moisture, wax and other impurities in the crude oil that are harmful to the human body and affect the quality of the oil. Ensure oil quality and food safety.

Oil refining equipment generally includes five major processes, namely degumming, deacidification, dehydration, decolorization, deodorization and other processes. According to the different types of oils, choose whether to add dewaxing process. If you don’t know the types of oils, you can consult the oil equipment manufacturer. The manufacturer will According to the different oils, we recommend the appropriate process and equipment.

The refining workshop needs to purchase a complete set of oil refining equipment.

4. Filling workshop

This part is the packaging link. After refining, the qualified refined oil can be sold as its own brand oil after filling, sealing, coding, and labeling, or it can be used as a substitute processing product. Before selling oil, it is necessary to check whether the acid value, peroxide value, moisture, aflatoxin, smell, taste, color, etc. of the oil meet the edible oil standards. The unqualified oil needs to be reprocessed and can only be sold after it is qualified.

The equipment needed in the filling workshop includes filling machines, labeling machines, box packers, palletizers and other equipment.
