Main Machinery required to start a groundnut oil processing plant
The acquisition of machineries and equipment for a peanut oil processing facility is contingent upon various factors such as the processing of raw materials, required pressure capacity, production expenditure plan, and other pertinent details. It would be in your best interest to establish communication with us so we can provide you with a customized business proposal and a comprehensive list of project expendituresHere list of some basic machinery required to start a groundnut oil processing plant
- Groundnut Decorticator Machine
- Cooking/Feeding Kettle
- Oil Expeller / Oil Press
- Oil Filter Press With Pump
- Steam Boiler
- Bucket Elevator
- Screw Conveyor
- Oil Storage Tank
To extract groundnut oil, a series of steps are required, including groundnut decortication, cleaning, seed conditioning, crushing/pressing, filtration, and packaging.
Groundnut Decorticator Machine
One of the significant advantages of using a groundnut decorticator machine is that it helps to streamline the process of removing the outer coat of groundnuts, which can be a time-consuming and tedious task when done manually. Additionally, using this machine results in more uniform and cleaner kernels, which is crucial when processing groundnuts for various applications such as oil production, peanut butter, or snack foods.
At our company, we pride ourselves on providing high-quality steam boilers that are tailored to meet the exact requirements of groundnut oil producers. Our steam boilers are meticulously crafted, with each machine customized to suit the specific needs of our valued customers. This level of customization results in enhanced productivity and efficiency, as our customers receive machines that are precisely aligned with their unique demands.
Groundnut Oil Expeller Machine
Groundnut Kernels, obtained after the Decortication process, can serve as raw materials for Groundnut Oil Extraction Plants. These kernels contain 40-45% oil content, and after a double-stage pressing, only about 7-10% residual oil remains in the Groundnut meal. This leftover oil cake is an excellent source of animal feed.
To prepare the kernels for oil extraction, they are conditioned using a steam cooking kettle. The steam treatment helps to soften the kernels and make them easier to process. Next, the conditioned Groundnut Kernels are forced through a chamber by the action of rotating screws. As the kernels move towards the discharge end, the screw pitch decreases, causing compression. This compression leads to increased pressure, which squeezes the oil out from the Groundnut kernels, and it is expelled through the gaps in the chamber.
Oil Filter Press Machine
A Groundnut oil filter press is a crucial machine utilized in the groundnut oil production process to filter impurities from crude groundnut oil. The machine's primary function is to ensure that the final product is of superior quality and free from impurities.
At Om Engineering Works, we offer a highly efficient, user-friendly, and cost-effective groundnut oil filter press. Our filter press is available in various sizes as per the client's needs for small, medium, and large-scale groundnut oil production units.
A bucket elevator is component used for the vertical transport of groundnut kernels between different Oil Mill Equipment. It is an essential part of an automatic plant setup mkaes material handling, use for reducing manpower.
we offer a latest designed belt Type Bucket Elevator, manufactured using high-quality MS material. Our elevator is reliable, efficient, and easy to operate.
A screw conveyor is used for transporting raw materials and oil cake horizontally or at an inclined angle. It consists of a rotating screw inside a tube or trough that moves the kernels along the length of the conveyor.
Screw conveyors are commonly used in groundnut oil mill plants for transferring kernels between different machines, such as from the cleaning machine to the decorticator. They are reliable, efficient, and easy to maintain, making them an essential component of groundnut oil production.
What is the cost of a Groundnut / Peanut Oil Extraction Plant?
The cost of a Groundnut Oil Mill Plant depends on different aspects such as Plant Capacity, Selection of equipments, automation process, etc.
