Sunflower and sunflower seeds(with shell and without shell)
Sunflower seeds is a common oilseeds, in which there are 45-54% oil content. Sunflower oil, with golden color, clear and transparent, fragrance oil, is a kind of popular edible oil among people.
Sunflower oil contains a lot of linoleic acid and other essential unsaturated fatty acids, can promote the regeneration and growth of human cells to protect skin health, and reduce the deposition of cholesterol in the blood. It is an advanced nutritional oil.
While how to make sunflower oil using sunflower oil mill machinery? Here I will introduce the main process of sunflower oil production process.
Sunflower oil production process flow chart
1. Sunflower seeds pretreatment & pre-pressing section
Sunflower seeds is a kind of high oil content oilseed, so the pre-pressing is necessary for making sunflower oil. Through a series of equipment processing, the sunflower seeds are adjusted in the best condition, and then sent into sunflower oil pre-pressing machine to extract part of sunflower oil.
The pretreatment machines are as following picture shows:

2. Sunflower oil solvent extraction section
Sunflower oil solvent extraction plant utilizes for extracting the maximum oil out from the sunflower seeds cakes. The final oil residue can be less than 1%. It is usually suitable for large capacity sunflower oil processing plant above 20tpd.

3. Sunflower oil refining section:
Sunflower oil refinery plant is to remove harmful impuries and useless substance, such as protein, phospholipid, pigment, moisture, wax and other impurities. And then the refined sunflower oil can reach the standard of food and storage.
Three types of sunflower oil refinery plant
(1) Degumming & Deacidification section: Use P-acid to remove gums, alkali to react with acid and then water to rinse.
(2) Decoloring/bleaching section: To remove pigments, get bleaching oils and dehydrated oil.
(3) Deodorizing section: To remove the odor components in oil.
(4) Dewaxing section: To remove the wax in the sunflower oil, in order to get the higher quality cooking oil.
