Can I produce soybean oil and peanut oil with same cooking oil processing machine?
We often receive such inquiries from customers: Can I produce soybean oil and peanut oil with same cooking oil processing machine? We think this need to consider the specific situation, If your production scale of edible oil processing plant is small and the budget is limited, we think it is feasible. But if your production scale of edible oil processing plant is large and want to get more economic benefits, we recommend using different equipment to produce peanut oil and soybean oil.
Next I will tell you how to choose is better in different situation.
Situation 1: When the production scale is small and the processing capacity is small, use the same equipment to meet the production needs.
If your processing capacity is less than 30tpd, It shows that your production scale is not large, your investment budget is not large, and the original intention of you start this business is to make more money with small investment cost. Face this situation, you must have only bought some necessary single equipment such as: oilseeds roaster machine, cooking oil press machine and cooking oil filter machine to meet the production need. If so, we recommend you use the same cooking oil processing machine to produce peanut oil and soybean oil. But it should be noted that you'd better to do it in batch, first we produce peanut oil and then produce soybean oil. However, due to there will be peanut oil residues in the cooking oil press and filter machine, which will lead to the quality of the soybean oil produced subsequently. But don't worry, there is only a short time of 2 minutes, which is basically negligible.
Some necessary single oil processing equipment
Situation 2: When the production scale and the processing capacity is relatively large, use different equipment to produce soybean oil and peanut oil will be more reasonable.
If your processing capacity is over 100tpd, It shows that your production scale is not small, your investment budget is not small, and the original intention of you start this business is to achieve greater economic benefits. Face this situation, we need to know what is the process of peanut and soybean production line and what equipment will be used, and then decide whether we need to buy some equipment separately to meet the different oilseeds production needs.
The processing steps of making peanut oil is: Shelling- separating shells and kernels- cleaning- crushing- flaking- cooking- oil pressing -oil filter- crude peanut oil.
The processing steps of making soybean oil is: cleaning- crushing- softening-flaking- cooking- oil pressing -oil filter- crude soybean oil.
From their respective processing processes, we can judge that most of the equipment can be common, but some equipment needs to be configured separately.
