The groundnut kernel has 40%-51% oil content, which is also one of the most widely used oilseeds. Groundnut oil also known as peanut oils and it can be extracted in various methods such as pressing method, pre-pressing and solvent extraction method. Among of them the most widely used extraction methods is pressing methods. In all of these options, the goal of extraction is to produce a pure groundnut oil.
Groundnut oil can be extracted in various methods such as pressing method, pre-pressing and solvent extraction method
Pressing method for extracting oil from groundnut:
Pressing method is the first choice of most people. Pressing method also named mechanical pressing. According to the customer's choose, there are three kinds of groundnut oil press machine can be used. They are: single screw groundnut oil press machine, hydraulic groundnut oil press machine and intergrated groundnut oil press machine.
Groundnut oil press machines picture is as follows:
Various kinds of groundnut oil press machine
If your production capacity is large, we recommend groundnut oil press production line for you. If you have limited funds, you can just buy the key machines such as cooking machine, groundnut oil press machine, crude groundnut oil filter machine. If you have enough funds, you'd better buy the whole groundnut oil press production line. Do like this , you can get more crude groundnut oil and the pressed groundnut cake is better.

The second groundnut oil extraction method is pre-pressing and solvent extraction method.
Groundnut oil pre-pressing process is the same with the whole peanut oil press production line. The only difference is that the groundnut oil press production line need to be worked with groundnut oil solvent extraction plant. Groundnut oil pre-pressing machine can extract most of groundnut oil, the groundnut oil solvent extraction plant can recover almost all the oils and leaves behind only 0.7% to 1% residual oil in the raw material. In the case of mechanical pressing the residual oil left in the oil cake may be anywhere from 6% to 14%.
