How to Make Sunflower Oil – Sunflower Oil Production Process

  • Sunflower Seeds Selecting and Cleaning

In order to ensure the quality of final sunflower oil, it is better to select sunflower seeds with oil content of 30~50% above. Then, clean the impurities contained in the sunflower seeds, including straws, metal iron, stones and more.

  • Sunflower Seeds Shelling and Crushing

Shelling process is to get the sunflower kernels. It is better to control the shell content in sunflower kernel is less than 10% and the sunflower kernel content in the shell is less than 1%. Then, adopting the crushing equipment to squeeze the sunflower kernels into small pieces, which is to smooth the following sunflower oil processing and increasing oil yield.

  • Sunflower Seeds Flaking and Steaming or Cooking

The sunflower kernels after crushing can be still broken into embryonic flakes to damage the cell tissues for easy oil extraction. Then, steaming or cooking equipment is used to adjust the moisture and temperature of the sunflower embryos.

Sunflower Oil Manufacturing Process

  • Sunflower Oil Pressing

Using the screw oil press machine, according the capacity, to press the sunflower oil out from the processed embryos. Now the sunflower oil press machine varies from the functions, but most sunflower oil making machines still belong to mechanical sunflower oil extraction method, which ensures the oil yield and lower the cost.

  • Sunflower Oil Refining and Dewaxing

The oil refining machine is to remove most of the impurities contained in the crude sunflower oil so as to improve the quality. It is worth noting that sunflower oil, unlike other vegetable oils, has high wax content in the crude sunflower oils. Therefore, most of the edible oil refining plant is also equipped with dewaxing process for sunflower oil production. (Related Article: 100tpd Sunflower Oil Production Line >>)


Oil Production Equipment for Sunflower Oil Production

For small scale and medium scale sunflower processing production, the following two oil pressing machines are recommended. One is general screw press, and the other one is multi-function oil pressing and filtering machine which is designed with vacumm filters. Both these two machines are good choice for mini, small and medium scale sunflower seeds oil pressing plant.

The general screw press is cheaper than the multi-function press in price, while the automatic multi-function one is featured of additional oil filtering device. For the ones who want to produce pure seed or nut oil at one time, our multi-function oil pressing and filtering machine should be the best choice. If needed, we can also help you establish a mini or small oil refinery plant to manufacture refined sunflower seed oil. (Related Product: Small Sunflower Oil Production Plant)

Natural sunflower oil is produced from sunflower seeds. It is one those ingredients that people use every day. It is a product that we all know of and we all use it. Whether you buy it because it is affordable cooking oil or because your recipe or meal requires it, it is an ingredient that is not going to disappear soon. So how is it manufactured? Let's look at the manufacturing process of this oil.


South Africa Sunflower Oil Production Industry

South Africa is an agricultural country in Eastern Africa, where half of the farmers grow sunflowers seeds countrywide. Sunflower farming mostly involves small-scale farmers, but also comprises of large scale farmers so as to supply raw materials for the high demand of sunflower seed oil, which is about 13% of edible oils in the entire world. From the high demand of sunflower seed oil locally and internationally, here comes sunflower seed oil market in South Africa. The major market centers of sunflower oil are , which is said to demand 75,000 plus tons per year.

The south africa government in collaboration with other units is trying to help the farmers to uplift their household businesses through implementations of agricultural projects. To increase the supply of sunflower seed oil, small and micro sunflower oil producers are advised to form groups that are more effective in storage, cleaning, refining and joint marketing.

Sunflower oil processing in South Africa are completely processed and refined by sunflower oil factory. In the recent past, there were many sunflower oil processing plant distributed all over the country to provide high quality refined sunflower oil at affordable prices. In fact, processing more than one million tons of sunflower oil, only about ¼ of that is clean and refined sunflower oil that is ready for the market. Why does this happen? This is mainly because of the low quality sunflower oil processing machinery and low quality sunflower seeds. If you choose QI'E, you can solve such problems since we only provide high quality oil production machinery.(Related product: Turkey Small Scale Sunflower Oil Press Price South Africa>> )

Tips for South Africa Sunflower Oil Production Industry

  • Choosing the qualified sunflower seeds for the sunflower oil production process to ensure the quality of final produced sunflower oil.
  • The purely refined sunflower seed oil is has much higher economic values.
  • Introducing advanced sunflower oil production equipment to meet the challenges of South Africa sunflower oil processing industry.
  • Has close cooperation with sunflower oil processing plant owners to join their efforts for more sufficient edible sunflower oil production.
  • Government provides more financial and technical supports, such as coming up with industrial policies, to motivate sunflower oil production industries.
  • I would like a quotation for a mini sunflower refinery equipment to be established in south africa. I will buy crude oil from local processors and do the final refinery, packaging and labelling. Please give me the range of products, capacity and prices so that I can decide which one I will purchase finally. Also give me the contacts of anybody who has purchased such a machine from South Africa so that I can visit for more information.
