Description of possession

Screw oil presses are designed for continuous mechanical extraction of vegetable oil from crushed oilseeds (sunflower, rapeseed, cake, soybeans, etc.).

The main product obtained after pressing is vegetable oil, the secondary product is a oilcake in the form of a shell with a residual oil content.

The principle of action

Screw press is a prefabricated welding frame with closed lining. In the frame there are bearing supports of the screw shaft and units for mounting of the loading case, the pressing cage, the bath for oil drainage, the channel for the oilcake exit. The transmission of torque from the motor is carried out by means of a V-belt transmission, and from the gearbox to the screw shaft – by a special cam-disc coupling. During the operation of oil press, the prepared material is fed by a screw shaft into the pressing cage through the feeder and the loading case, where the oil is extracted. The pressed oil flows through the slots of the pressing slats into the bath, from which it is fed for further processing. The pressed material (oilcake) comes out through the annular gap between the sleeve and the cone of the screw shaft.

Oil presses operate in a continuous mode of full mechanical load, so it is very important that all parts of the press that are in contact with raw materials (screws, pressing cages and slats, etc.) are durable. To achieve maximum wear resistance, our company carries out heat treatment of all these parts, which significantly increases their service life and reduces customer costs for the purchase of spare parts.

Each press is completed with gearboxes of the European production, frequency converters for regulation of rotation frequency of the electric motor according to requirements of individual production.

Our company produces oil presses in two variants:

– for preliminary pressing (forpress);

– for final oil pressing (expeller).

Frequently Asked questions about screw oil presses
What is the capacity of a screw oil press for sunflower oil production?
The capacity of our screw oil presses is from 25 to 300 tons per day depending on the model.
What materials are used for production of oil presses?
Screw oil press for sunflower oil production is made of high quality materials – carbon steel and cast iron alloys.
What is the price of the oil press?
The cost of the oil press depends on the model and capacity, and the price is formed taking into account these parameters.
How should I store sunflower oil produced on this oil press?
Sunflower oil produced by the screw oil press should be stored in a cool place away from sun and heat. It is also recommended to use dark bottles to store the oil to protect it from light.

Account details will be confirmed via email.
