Design Specifications

The Alvan Blanch Oil Expeller Press is designed such that 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.

Complementary Technical Systems

If a generator is used to power the press - the press should be fitted with a speed controller. 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
