Performance & use
[*Design & Operation*] (http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems “http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems”)
The seed is placed under increasing pressure as it is conveyed through a tapered chamber. Because of the high level of compression (and pressure generated temperature) oil is expelled through a set of rings – the residual solid matter is conveyed to the end of the press and falls away as thin strips of ‘oilcake’.
• Compresses oilseed drape at 150 – 400 kg/hr
• No switches or basic control panel
• Dimensions (LxWxH) (cm): 155 x 112 x 180
• XP100E model has a 9.2 kWh motor. ^Interview ^with Representative
Full technical support is [provided by Alvan Blanch] (http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems “http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems”) – system design, commissioning and after sales. An online FAQ is provided on their site.

[1 year warranty] (http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems “http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems”) on faulty workmanship or materials
The bearings and bushes and the adjusting block should be lubricated, and the screw and rings inspected every week. Gearbox oil should be changed every 6 months. Failure modes: Trapped foreign objects can damage the press – ie, stones / tramp metal. Excessive levels of straw, trash etc will increase wear and may cause blockages. Recommend the fitting of magnets in feed hopper
The rings will last approximately 600 tons, and the screw sections will last approximately 300 tons.
[*Performance targets*] (http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems “http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems”)
Volume of oil from one ton of rape: Approx. 250 to 300 liters of oil depending upon the original oil content/moisture content/ cleanliness of the sample.
Feedstock rate: rapeseed crushed/ hour = Approx. 150 kgs / hour
If a generator is used to power the press – the press should be fitted with a [speed controller] (http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems “http://www.alvanblanchgroup.com/oil-extraction-systems”). A voltage monitoring system is needed to avoid damage to the inverter.
The XP100E gives crude oil. In order to get processed oil, you would need a filter press, pump, settling tanks, etc.
Additional attachments include: Temperature Adjustment Chamber, Oil Pump, Feed Hopper, Proximity Sensor, MPC Pre-Cleaner, MPC Support Frame, IBC Tank, Primary Settling Tank ^Interview ^with ^representative
