Features of Mini Oil Mill (Micro Scale)
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mill is suitable for crushing all types of oilseeds whether edible or non edible.
- Filtration of oil is better giving transparent pure natural appearance to the oil.
- Decorticator has special provision for De-shelling groundnut for seed without breakage.
- Yield of oil is very good with quality oil and cake
- Maintenance expenses are negligible. Diesel consumption in engine is only 1.25 liters per hour.
- Technology is so simple that person can be trained only in 3 days to operate the mill.

Further Information :
- Highly experienced mill operator can extract oil without cooking from some oilseeds such as rape seeds, cottonseed, sesame, sunflower, copra etc. For Groundnut, Palm kernel, Castor seed, cooking is essential.
- Refining of oil is not required. Filtered oil is best for health. Filter oil has minimum 18 months shelf life. However, cottonseed oil requires refining or at least neutralizing.
- Castor seed oil requires steam heating in a neutralizer vessel before filtration.
- For palm fruits, our conventional expeller will not be useful.
Functions of Machinery :
- Groundnut ‘Decorticator’ shells the groundnut into husks and kernels. Husks are thrown away by built in air blower and kernels are screened to separate split kernels from whole kernels.
- Sunflower cracker breaks the sunflower seeds and gives the mixture of kernels & husks for crushing.
- Palm nut cracker breaks the palm nuts & gives the palm kernels & husks.
- Copra cutter breaks the copra cups into small pieces suitable for crushing into expeller.
- Cooking kettle heats and cooks the kernels or oilseeds by outer steam or by electricity. A little steam / water are also added to the oilseeds to increase moisture content to optimum level. Kettle is mounted on the expeller and is driven from expeller.
- Expeller crushes oilseeds producing oil and oil cake.
- Filter press filters the oil. Filtered oil is completely pure and fresh natural edible oil.
- Boiler provides process steam to the cooking kettle. Husks are used as fuel in the boiler. Any agricultural waste or wood can be used. Water feed pump is mounted on the boiler itself.
- Neutralizer removes (F.F.A.) free fatty acids from cottonseed oil by adding caustic soda. \Castor oil also can be heated into neutralizer by steam coils inside the neutralizer.
Socio Economic Benefits :
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills greatly encourage rural development as wealth and self-employment jobs are generated in villages.
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills save transport expenses for carrying oilseeds to cities and bringing oil from cities.
- Consumer’s empty tins can be refilled and hence costly packing expenses can be saved.
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills make pure, fresh natural oil available to villagers from their own oilseeds on custom milling basis. So villagers are saved from profiteering, adulteration, taxations etc.
- Speculation in oil and oilseed becomes impossible due to decentralized production in Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills eliminate exploitation by middlemen and traders, as consumers have direct contact with mills.
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills encourage animal husbandry by making oilcake available as best cattle feed. It increases milk production considerably
- Shreeji Micro Scale Mini Oil Mills create confidence and enthusiasm among villagers and their youngsters to run and manage rural industries. This is the greatest benefit as it accelerates creative entrepreneurship for other industries also
