Before pressing sunflower seeds, we need to use cleaning machine to remove the impurities in the sunflower seeds, such as stones, soil, and metal, so as not to damage the machine.


In this part, we first need to use a crusher to break the shell, and then use the difference in weight of sunflower kernels and shells to separate sunflower kernels.


We need to flake the sunflower seeds into thin slices with a flaking machine, which can destroy the tissue cells of the oil and increase the oil yield.


Cooking is to adjust the temperature and moisture of sunflower seed kernels, so that the sunflower seeds can reach the best condition to facilitate the subsequent pressing.


Pressing is the core step in extracting sunflower oil. In this step, we need to use a screw sunflower oil press machine to press sunflower oil seeds. After pressing, the residual oil rate is less than 8%. If you want more sunflower oil yield, you can pre-press sunflower seeds and then extract the sunflower oil by solvent extracting. In this way, the residual oil rate can be less than 1%.


Filtration can remove impurities in sunflower oil and improve oil quality. Usually, we use plate filter and clarification tank to filter impurities.
