The extraction plant comprises of Extraction, De-solventizing Toaster, a Distillation System and a Solvent recovery system. The extractor enables removal of the solvent from the meal, toasts the meal to maintain inherent nutrition, and stabilizes its moisture as well as temperature. This equipment is eﬃciently designed to achieve the best of performance in terms of quality of oil, quality of DOC, consumption of utilities and hexane loss.
Solvent extraction is a multi level process used to extract oil from the seeds by use of a solvent. Post milling, the meal is ready, which means that the seed has been improved to a form which enhances its surface area for solvent absorption. This meal is transferred to the extractor, where it comes in contact with hexane (solvent). The oil meal and miscella are the outputs which are further processed and distilled for optimum extraction of oil and solvent removal.
