Crop Science: Sunflower Production in Botswana
Sunflower (Helianthus annus L.) is the most important oil seed crop in Southern Africa at present and is being grown virtually in all summer rainfall areas.Marginal soils are being utilised more for production of sunflower which is less risky and require lower production inputs. It is expected that the demand for vegetable oils and proteins will increase in future, and sunflower is the ideal
Sunflower Seed Preparation and Oil Extraction - ScienceDirect
Sunflower is crushed for oil recovery via one of two process methods, hard pressing or prepress solvent extraction. Hard pressing relies upon exerting high pressure on the prepared seed to separate oil from the solids fraction, historically recovering about 25% oil from the seed.
How Is Oil Extracted From Sunflower Seeds? | LEAFtv
Sunflower Oil Extraction. Warm and cold presses extract oil from sunflower seeds with slightly different flavors in the finished product. In a cold press, the hulls are removed; the seeds are broken into smaller pieces and run through steel rollers or a piston-like cylinder to squeeze out the oil.
Sunflower oil production in South Africa__Industry News
Sunflower oil production is the main oil in South Africa. South Africa produced between 500 000 to 800 000 tons of sunflower seed per year between 2005 to 2010. Depending on the sunflower seed production area and planting time, sunflower seeds are harvested from January to June. Sunflower seed can be stored for 12 months.
PDF Market Analysis: Sunflower Oil
2010. Sunflower seeds are harvested from January up until June depending on the production area and planting time. Sunflower seed can be stored for up to 12 months. Nearly all of South Africa's sunflower seed are processed into sunflower seed oil and sunflower seed oilcake for human and animal consumption.
Sunflower Oil Manufacturing Business Plan Sample Checklist
Modern oil extraction techniques create a byproduct called pressed sunflower seed cake or meal. Basically, it is high in protein and you can utilise it for livestock feed. Sunflower oil comes under the FMCG product segment. Like any other edible oil, sunflower oil manufacturing business demands an adequate emphasis on marketing and distribution.
Sunflower Processing, Processing of Oil Seed and None-oil seed
Sunflower seeds come in 2 types: the non-oil seeds that are eaten as confectionery products after roasted with the shell or without the shell as kernels, and the oilseeds that are processed into oil and meal which is a by-product of sunflower seed oil extraction primarily used as an ingredient in livestock feed rations.

PDF Oil Extraction - Rivendell Village
Oil extraction Practical Action Some seeds (especially groundnuts for example) are conditioned by heating to 80-90oC using a seed scorcher (Figure 2 shows a typical small-scale example - a separate heat source is necessary beneath the scorcher). All oil-bearing materials need to have the correct moisture content to maximise the oil yield.
Processes Involved in Sunflower Seed Oil Production
Sunflower seed oil production does the following manufacturing processes: cleaning of the seeds, grinding of the seeds, pressing and extraction of crude oil from these seeds and then further refining the oil obtained before packaging. A volatile hydrocarbon like hexane is used as a solvent to extract the oil.
Establishing a Castor Oil Extraction Plant in South Africa
Conclusion. The suggested castor oil extraction plant in South Africa must satisfy the expected production capacity of about 60 Kg per day based on the current demand and production trends. South Africa has a significant market for castor oil. Many local consumers utilize the castor oil for hair loss, skin care, and other domestic purposes.

Oil from the seeds of plants belonging to the genus Brassica, family Cruciferae, have been utilized by man for thousands of years (Prakash and Hinata, 1980), but it is only during the last 30 years that oilseed Brassica crops have become internationally important (Lamb, 1989).
Sunflower Seeds and Oil | Food Source Information
De-hulling: Sunflower seeds from the oil-type contain about 20%-30% hulls that are sometimes removed before oil extraction to ensure the quality of both oil and sunflower meal. De-hulling is done when the seed has a moisture content of 5% after cleaning.
