The growing edible oilseed market.
The growing market for edible oils is driving producers to innovate and develop a wide range of new oils. With a growing demand for healthy options, consumers are seeking oils that contain omega 3, omega 8, stearin, cholesterol blockers, as well as vitamins A, D, E, and K, among other food additives. As a result, oil extraction factories are under pressure to increase production to meet demand, while animal fat consumption continues to decline. This trend is driving the growth of the edible oilseed market.
Challenges and opportunities for the supply chain.
The growers of oil-containing seeds face the challenge of maintaining a balance between feasibility and upcoming opportunities in the market. To ensure a stable supply of feedstock at reasonable prices, oilseed extraction processes must achieve the highest possible oil percentage. Growers are under pressure to supply raw materials with high oil content, but improved plant varieties and expensive soil fertilization make it challenging to maintain financial viability. It’s a battle between viability and new supply opportunities. Oil extraction companies also face pressure to extract the maximum oil content from the raw materials to ensure a stable supply for both parties. They share responsibility for the growers’ income, and high-performance extraction lines are needed to guarantee a return.
Flaking Mills makes the difference.
Our range of flaking mills have a critical role to play in the extraction of oil from vegetable seeds. Even a slight increase of 2%, 3%, or 5% in oil extraction can greatly impact the viability of an oil extracting factory. This leads to better negotiation power on the price of feedstock supply, resulting in better pricing on international oil markets.
Although the flaking mill is just one part of the production line, it is a determining factor for yield, and its higher performance and reduced maintenance downtime create a significant difference in the Internal Rate of Return (IRR) over the long term.
Our Flaking Mills excel in delivering extremely precise and consistent flake thicknesses. Even when operating production 24/7 you can guarantee a flake thickness of 0.28 mm for months without worry. We’ve achieved this thanks to the robust C-shape frame and fully automatic roll nip adjustment design. This is why our flake rolling machines are suitable in the extraction of edible vegetable oils from various oilseeds, across the globe.
