How much oil can be extracted from 1ton groundnuts?

How much oil can be extracted from 1ton groundnuts is depend on what method you use to extract groundnut oil. Typically, there are two methods which can be used to extract groundnut oil: pressing method and pre-press & solvent extraction method. They are chosen based on the daily capacity of groundnuts. If you want to extract groundnut oil from 1ton groundnuts, you can use pressing method because of the less raw material. The oil content of groundnuts is about 50%, and the residual oil rate of pressing method is about 7%, so you can obtain 1ton*(50-7)%=430kg groundnut oil.

Henan Glory Company recommend that if your daily capacity is more than 30 T/D, choosing pre-press & solvent extraction method to extract groundnut oil. If your daily capacity is less than 30 T/d, you can use pressing method to extract groundnut oil. Next, Henan Glory Company will take 100 tons groundnut as an example to elaborate how much oil can be extracted by using two different methods.

The content of shell in 100tons of peanuts with shell accounts for 30%, this content is not to be ignored. So it means that the groundnut kernels is about 70tons.

If use pressing method, you can get 70tons*(50-7)%=30.1tons groundnut oil, and the residual groundnut oil is about 4.9tons.

The residual oil rate of pre-press & solvent extraction method is about 15%. If use this method, you can obtain 70tons*(50-15)%=24.5tons groundnut oil in the pre-press plant. And in the solvent extraction plant, you can get 70 tons*14%=9.8tons groundnut oil. Then you can totally get 24.5+9.8=34.3tons groundnut oil. It is worth noting that the residual oil rate of solvent extraction method is less than 1%, so the residual groundnut oil is only 0.7tons.

Through the above comparison, it is easy to conclude that if your daily capacity is large, then choosing the pre-press & solvent extraction method is more cost-efficient. But if your daily capacity is small or only for home use, pressing method is OK. Therefore, you can choose a suitable method to press groundnut oil according to your needs.

In addition, the factors that affect the oil yield of groundnuts are the quality of the machine, the quality and the size of groundnuts etc. As a professional manufacturer of groundnut oil processing machine, Henan Glory Company can offer you processing machine with quality assurance.
