Oil Expeller / Oil Screw Press
Model: Viraat-SE-II (15TPD)
Vertical Hinged 44” Four-section Pressing Box.
Entirely eliminates the difficult task of removing box for relining or for replacement of worms, which saves lot of time and labour.
Steel Casted Chambers
Reduces time and labour for relining of Cage Bars.
The main Worm Shaft can be withdrawn very easily without disturbing the gear section in any way and pressure worms and spacing collars can be changed without disturbing the shaft. The thrust of the pressure worm is taken upon a large thrust bearing.
The final pressure of the cake is positively controlled by a Pressure Cone which is hard faced.
Cake at Discharge
The cake thickness is controlled by a manually operated hand-wheel which is so simple that the choke gear is independent of the main drive and there is no possibility of a sudden load being placed on expeller motor.
Expeller feed is under automatic control and the seed or meal when entering the Expeller is given a preliminary compression by a small crammer-shaft driven by an automatically tensioned belt which stops when feed is excessive, starting again when the accumulation has been absorbed by the Expeller.
Oil & Cake Discharge Conveyor
This is fitted along the full length of the Expeller having right and left hand flights to deliver the oil and cake to central points. The drive is from the main Gear box (can be provided at an extra cost).
Oil Expeller is 30HP and for Cooker 5 HP.
Gear Box & Lubrication
A double helical gear unit made from most suitable special steel running in oil bath. All shafts run on anti-friction bearings. The drive housing is oil tight and dust proof, totally enclosed design and is fitted with a level indicator.
Kettle / Cooker
The Steam Kettle is of adequate capacity with 48” dia. three-high steam jackets fitted with self controlled meal inlet to prevent overflowing with open steam spray arrangement, safety valve, steam pressure gauge, steam traps and steam valves. The Kettle requires 100/120 lbs. of
process steam per hour at a pressure of 60 lbs. per square inch.
The capacity varies with the material and working conditions. The average capacity is 14/15 tons
in first pressing and 8/10 tons in second pressing.
