Soy Bean Oil Extraction
The following is an example of a complete soybean processing line.
The line includes following components and can be individually supplemented or adapted:
- Daily silo for the raw soybeans
- Thermal pretreatment of the raw bean using our patented low-temperature treatment process with the “Florapower Thermo-Major”
- Efficient pressing of the bean with our screw press of the “I_Press” series
- Filtration of the oil solids with the “Florapower – I_Filter” – chamber filter press
- Recirculation of the filter cake to the pressing process (prevents filtration losses and increases the overall oil yield up to 5-8%)
- Removal and cooling of the press cake for the simple and microbiologically safe storage / processing
- A fully automated and self learning process control system “Forapower Press-Pilot” for the whole production line
The pure thermal soy processing using Thermo-Major can be found here.
