Solvent Extraction Equipments
Solvent Extraction Equipment is used for “extraction of oil” from seeds, cakes, or oil-bearing material using a Solvent.
Usually Hexane, a petroleum by-product, is used as a solvent.
Solvent Extraction is carried out regularly in the laboratory by the chemists as a standard purification procedure in organic synthesis.
In analytical separations, certain solvents preferentially remove one or more constituents from a solution quantitatively.
Batch extractions of this sort, on a small scale, are usually done by separator funnels, where the mechanical agitation is supplied by handshaking of the pipe.
A technique, also called liquid extraction, for separating the components of a liquid solution.
This technique depends upon the selective dissolving of one or more constituents of the solution into a suitable immiscible liquid solvent.
Industrial plants using solvent extraction require equipment for carrying out the extraction itself (extractor) and for substantially complete recovery of the solvent for reuse, usually by distillation.
The plant is designed to extract oil directly from oil seeds containing less than 20% oil like soybean after flaking or it removes oils from pre-pressed or fully pressed cake of seeds containing more than 20% oil like sunflower, peanuts, cottonseed, palm kernel, canola, copra, castor and variety of other materials.
