Baobab Seed Oil Press Machine and Extraction Machine

Baobab Seed Oil Press Machine and Extraction Machine

Introduction To Baobab Seed Oil

Baobab oil contains 33% saturated fatty acids, 36% monounsaturated fatty acids, and 31% polyunsaturated fatty acids. Rich in vitamins A, E, F and sterols. It has a strong ability to resist rancidity and has a good shelf life, but it should also be kept in a cool and sealed manner.

The main uses of baobab oil are external skincare for emollients and anti-aging. It can be applied and massaged directly on the skin. It is easily absorbed by the skin quickly and does not leave any greasy feeling, suitable for all kinds of skin. It promotes the rejuvenation of skin cells, helps maintain skin health, improves skin elasticity, and delays skin aging. The baobab seed oil can also lighten scars and relieves skin irritations.

Besides, baobab oil has a smooth texture and nourishes hair, softening hair for silky smoothness.

All of these baobab seed oil press machine is easy to operate and has many practical features. All of the three types baobab seed oil press machine are absolutely cost effective and efficient for baobab seed oil extraction.

How Is Baobab Oil Extracted?

Pressing method: The pressing method has a long history, and its technological process is relatively simple. After roasting the baobab seeds, the material is squeezed out of the oil by mechanical means. The traditional pressing method requires operators to pay heavy manual labor. In the extruded oil residue (oil cake), the residual oil content is quite high, thus wasting extremely valuable oil resources. The modern pressing method is an industrialized and automated operation, and the problem of high residual oil content in the oil residue has been well solved.

Baobab Seeds Oil Extraction Process

  • Baobab Seeds Collection: The baobab seeds grow within the baobab fruit, so it is necessary to remove the powdery inner part and fruit shell to get the baobab seeds.
  • Baobab Seeds Cleaning: The collected baobab seeds are then cleaned and dried for further baobab seed oil processing.
  • Baobab Seeds Decortication: Although it is also feasible to press oil from the baobab seeds without removing the shells, it is highly recommended to remove the seed husks by using mechanical decorticator to get the baobab seed kernels. Decortication not only can improve the oil output, but also protect oil press machine from the damages of hard outer husk.
  • Baobab Seeds Oil Extraction: Use screw oil press machine to squeeze the baobab seed kernels and get the oil.
  • Baobab Seed Oil Purification: Oil filter machine, such as plate and frame oil filter or centrifugal oil filter, are used to remove the organic impurities brought by the oil extraction process.

Because cold pressed and unrefined baobab oil may contain small amounts of Cyclopropenoid Fatty Acids, an anti-nutrient factor that adversely affects protein, oral administration is not recommended (some manufacturers remove this ingredient to make it edible), but it is safe for external use. We also have Mini Oil Refinery for Baobab Oil.

Highlights Of Baobab Seed Oil Press Machine

  • Automatic temperature control, fast oil extraction, good oil quality,
  • The screw oil press adopts vacuum filtration for rapid oil purification.
  • Continuous work, simple operation, one-key start, saving time and effort.
  • A wide range of uses saves energy and is cost-effective. This baobab oil pressing machine mainly processes oil-bearing materials: sesame, walnut kernel, peanut kernel, tea seed, flax, cocoa butter, pine nut, almond, olive, and other high oil crops.

Cold-Pressed Baobab Oil Extraction Process

The basic process of cold pressing: raw baobab seeds — cold pressing (filtering is optional) — pure baobab oil

Cold pressing means that the raw materials are directly put into the oil press to squeeze out the oil without roasting. The baobab oil made by this method is relatively lighter in color and brighter in color, but the oil yield is relatively lower.

To make cold-pressed baobab oil, it is also commonly used a hydraulic oil press machine. The pressure of the cold-pressed baobab oil machine is high, and so is the work efficiency. The oil quality is pure. The baobab oil pressing machine adopts a fully automatic control system, the preheating temperature is automatically controlled, and the hydraulic system pressure is automatically controlled. The output of the cold oil press machine is generally 30-250kg/h.

How Does A Cold Pressed Baobab Oil Machine Work?

In general, the baobab oil is pushed upwards by the force of the oil cylinder assembly inside the press assembly, the oil flows down from the oil gap of the baobab seed oil press machine, and flows into the oil storage barrel through the oil receiving pan. Here are the 4 steps for making cold-pressed baobab oil.

Startup: The motor starts and the hydraulic oil from the high and low-pressure double pump return to the oil tank through the high-pressure rotary valve 4.
Pre-pressure: The high-pressure rotary valve is turned to the right position, and the high-low pressure hydraulic oil of the double pump enters the upper chamber of the pressing cylinder through the high-pressure switching valve, and the cylinder starts to work for pre-pressing.
Pressing: When the pressure rises to 50Mpa, the low-pressure relief valve of the pump station is unloaded, and the high-pressure pump of the double pump supplies hydraulic oil for oil extraction. When the electric contact pressure gauge is adjusted to 45Mpa-55Mpa, the motor is powered off. When the pressure drops to 45Mpa, the motor starts. Through repeated squeezing, the baobab oil yield is high.
Pressure relief: After oil pressing, turn the high-pressure valve 4 to the left position, the hydraulic oil output from the double pump enters the lower chamber of the oil pressing cylinder through the hydraulic control check valve, and the pressure of the relief valve is set to 5Mpa. The valve is turned to neutral and the motor is de-energized.


Baobab Oil Uses And Benefits

Baobab oil is easily absorbed by the skin and does not leave any greasy sensation. It can strengthen moisture and repair damaged skin, highly moisturize the skin, soften the cuticle. While it increases skin elasticity and promotes skin cell tissue reproduction, it does not clog pores, allows the skin to breathe normally, and has the effect of soothing the skin. It is the best choice for people who lose young elastic skin. It can also be used as an oil for dry hair, nails and lips.

baobab oil uses

Baobab seed oil is thin, low density, nourishing, with trace elements and vitamins, such as omega-6 and omega-9 and vitamin E. It is an antioxidant, and helps in hydration and elasticity of both skin and hair.

► Gives more brightness and and protection to your hair: As this oil has fatty acids, it is absorbed by the hair and has several benefits, such as increased brightness of the hair.
 Nourishes the scalp and prevents hair loss: The oil can also be used directly on the scalp to help nourish, detoxify and even prevent hair loss. Baobab oil, when used at the hair's length, helps restore hair, making it healthier and naturally prettier.
► Tones, moisturizes and protects your nails: Baobab oil tones and protects the nail , moisturizing and improving elasticity and preventing the cuticle from getting hard. In Europe, for example, they are against cutting the cuticle and use a lot of oil to soften it. Using this oil, you won't even have to take it off, just push the cuticle.
 Prevents nail cracks: nails will eventually gain cracks or streaking, making them ugly. The oil will prevent these problems by keeping the nails healthy and beautiful.
► Moisturizes the lips: On the lips, this oil can be used to moisturize and remove the small skins that come out of your lips when they are chapped.
► Keeps the skin on your face hydrated: In your face, baobab oil penetrates the skin and will balance the lipids, which is the natural protection on your skin, keeping the skin more beautiful and protected.
► Moisturize your heels: Baobab oil can also help prevent the “crust” that can form on your heels, leaving your feet hydrated and soft.
