Solvent extraction

FirmTec systems for solvent extraction

A solvent extraction system enables you to maximise the amount of oil you can extract from an oil cake or other solid material with residual oil. FirmTec can supply a system that will allow you to benefit from maximum oil yields and minimum loss of (expensive) oil.

FirmTec's solvent extraction system uses an intelligent process to extract residual oil from solid materials. The machine pelletises the material and then dissolves the oil in a carrier (usually hexane) via solvent extraction. The system distils the hexane back out of the oil.

Solvent extraction is possible with vegetable-based materials (oil cake) and animal-based materials, such as for example meat and bone meal.

Keys advantages of FirmTec's solvent extraction systems

  • Maximum oil yields and minimum loss of (expensive) oil
  • For vegetable-based and animal-based materials
