The sunflower oil press is suitable for extracting oil from sunflower seeds. Sunflower seed oil is one of the major oil crops in the world. The sunflower seed oil contains about 66% of the “linoleic acid”. Sunflower can be divided into two types according to the different uses, that is, oil-oriented sunflower and edible sunflower. Sunflower seeds can be used to extract oil and oil residue (also known as “sunflower oil cake”) can be used as protein feed. Sunflower tray and straw can also be used accordingly. As a professional sunflower oil press machine manufacturer, we provide quality screw oil press machines and all-around service and have delivered our machines to a large number of countries. Sunflower oil cold press machine is also popular in the market.

Sunflower oil press advantages
- The sunflower oil machine has high oil extraction rate. It can extract the sunflower oil to a great degree.
- The sunflower oil making machine is applicable to a wide range of raw oil crops, including palm, soybeans, coconut, walnuts, peanuts, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, almonds, etc.
- High efficiency is also its outstanding features. The output of the sunflower oil press can reach 600kg/h or more.
How to press sunflower oil?
Sunflower oil extraction machine extracts oil by the pressing of screw shaft. When the sunflower oil press is running, the processed sunflower seeds enter the press chamber from the hopper. When the screw rotates, the material is pushed forward by the extrusion screw and gets pressed. Under the pressure in the chamber, the material and the screw generate friction and heat. Then, the flower oil gradually flows out while the oil cakes come out from another outlet.
Tips for maintanance
- The oil cup shall not be short of oil. When adjusting the screw shaft of the sunflower oil press, the inner bearing of the screw shaft shall be added with grease. Dry grinding is strictly prohibited.
- Check the sunflower oil reducer gearbox each year.
- When the amount of oil press reduces, or the oil cake or sunflower oil is not normal, check the screw shaft, and replace the vulnerable parts in a timely manner.
- After using the screw oil press, clean the machine’s surface.
- For long-term storage, the machine should be placed in a dry place.
