10TPD Sunflower Oil Pressing Line Project in Zambia

  • Project Name: Sunflower Oil Production Line
  • Project Location:Zambia
  • Project Capacity: 10 tons per day
  • Raw Material: Sunflower Seeds, Cottonseeds, Soybeans
  • Main Equipment: Seeds Pretreatment Equipment, Screw Oil Press MachineEdible Oil Refinery Plant.
  • Similar Projects: 10TPD Sunflower Oil Processing Plant in South Africa; 10TPD Soybean Oil Production Line in Ghana; 15TPD Groundnut Oil Production Plant in Cote d'Ivoire;

This Vegetable Oil Production Line was established in Zambia in 2020. Now, this project has been running for four years, and the edible oils it produced are sold very well in local markets. Although the oil pressing section was designed for three kinds of plant seeds, the main raw material is sunflower seeds. Taking in consideration of the further oil production requirements, the pretreating section was also equipped with delinter, crusher, screening sieve, cooker, single screw oil presses and one set small oil refinery unit so that the whole oil processing factory can process more plant seeds, not only sunflower seeds, soybean and cottonseeds.

This sunflower seed oil pressing line was assembled with two sets of 6YL Oil Press Machine that is very suitable for Small Scale Oil Mill Plant. The oil refining section adopts small type edible oil refinery equipment for high grade oil. All the sunflower oil production equipment was carefully combined for the best results and customer’s requirements.

The cost of setting up a sunflower oil production line should take many factors into into consideration, including production capacity and process, equipment, factory layout, automation degree of the production line, requirements of the final sunflower oil (crude oil or refined oil).

This small sunflower oil production line was constructed under the technical guidance, professional engineers. Below is the onsite installation and commissioning pictures of this sunflower oil pressing line.

Sunflower Oil Production Process & Machine

Actually, setting up an Oil Mill Plant to produce vegetable oil from sunflower seeds is an easy thing, especially for a small scale sunflower oil production line. The process of extracting oil from sunflower seeds is quite simple compared with the extraction of some other kinds of oils. Sunflower seeds are cleaned with magnets which will attract all metal particles and then they go through screening to remove other impurities. Sunflower seeds are then prepared for oil extraction by being heated and dried. They can be cleaned from seed shells prior to oil extraction or go to the Sunflower Oil Processing Equipment complete. The seed is mechanically pressed to extract half to three-thirds of oil from seeds. Sunflower oil is then sent to further processing to make it edible. This is where sunflower oil refining is done. After bottling, sunflower oil is ready to be consumed. There, we introduce the main sunflower oil production machine and its functions.

Sunflower Seeds Cleaning Machine:combined vibration cleaner & destoner is widely used for cleaning and Destoning of granular grains and seeds such as wheat, maize, Peas, rice, beans by screen size and density. Light impurities like grass seeds, Slag, soil and dust can also removed by air cleaning efficiently.
Sunflower Oil Pressing MachineThere are many types and models of sunflower oil pressing machinery in today’s market. But, we recommend screw oil press since it costs lower but has very good producing capacity. We offer two types of screw oil press machine for sunflower oil production, one is the single screw oil press and the other is automatic oil press. Both are very great in practical uses.
Sunflower Oil Filter Machine: Generally, plate and frame oil filter machine is highly recommended in vegetable oil processing plants to filter crude oils because of its continuous working performance, large capacity and of its low price. The filter cloth is made of polyester fabric for long-term use and easy cleaning. The capacity of our oil filter machine for sale ranges from 85kg/h to 800kg/h.
Sunflower Oil Filtering, Refining and Dewaxing Machine: to remove impurities (organic impurities, phospholipid, odors, pigment, wax, etc.) contained in the crude sunflower oil, enhance the stability for storage, improve the sunflower oil flavor and improve the color of sunflower oil.

 Sunflower Oil Processing Opportunity In Africa

Africa is a huge market for new opportunities. There is a lot of space for different industrial developments, a lot of opportunities for progress in the field of agricultural development. The food market is an ever-growing area of the African economy. Production of sunflower oil provides many opportunities for the economic development of a region, from growing plants to producing oil from the seeds. This process is an opportunity for new jobs and the improvement of the social status of many.

African Countries with the Highest Sunflower Oil Production
Although the whole of Africa recognized opportunities that emerge from sunflower oil processing, some countries adjusted better to the demands of the industry. In these countries, Sunflower oil productions are very high and still developing with new technologies.

♦ South Africa ♦ Tanzania ♦ Uganda ♦ Egypt ♦ Morocco
♦ Zambia ♦ Mozambique ♦ Zimbabwe ♦ Angola ♦ Kenya

There is still a lot of space for developing and many improvements in the sunflower oil industry in Africa. Better conditions for the farmers and better incentives, encouragement for small manufacturers that act locally using local sources and offering jobs for the local population, modernization of existing machinery and the process itself, it can all bring new opportunities in sunflower oil production. The consuming market of edible sunflower oil is big enough for all improvements.
