Oil seed processing

Industrial sectors
  • Oil seed processing
Possible uses
  • Product transportation gravimetric
  • Suction/dusts + aerosols in several processing stages
  • Bulk good system for oil seeds, including aspiration system in several processing stages
  • Bulk good system in refining,
  • Bulk good system in packaging
  • Dust-separation systems also in the icing sugar sector
Product characteristics
  • Oil seeds are fine grains initially (rapeseed/poppy)
  • Stringer paste-like to lumpy
  • Caking dissolves of its own accord
  • Return air carries dust or aerosols (containing oil)
  • Oil impermeable connections necessary
Special characteristics
  • All operating parts are at risk of explosion (solvents are used in the extraction sector); earthing necessary
Primary use
  • Materials: Exclusively Cr Ni steels
  • Pipe diameter: Product: 80 – 150 mm, Return air systems: 80 – 400 mm
  • Wall thicknesses: s = 1 mm = air transportation systems, s 1/2 mm = product transportation systems
