Solvent Extraction

Solvent Extraction

Main purpose of solvent extraction is to extract oil from pressed cake or flakes. Miscella is pumped to evaporation system and spent meal is desolventized.

Main Equipment: Sliding Cell Extractor, E-type Extractor

Miscella Distillation

Miscella is the liquid fraction obtained through solvent extraction. It consists primarily of oils, volatile solvents, and entrained meal powder. After removing impurities, miscella is pumped to the distillation system. The purpose of distillation is to remove solvent from oil through evaporation. Solvent vapor is condensed and recycled.

Main Equipment: First Stage Evaporator, Tubular Heat Exchanger, Sieve Tray Stripper

Solvent Recovery

Solvent evaporated from each section is recycled to solvent-water separation tank through condenser. Uncondensed vapor enters the exhaust condenser where most of the uncondensed solvent is condensed. A small amount of solvent vapor and non-condensable gas enter the absorption tower in which solvent is absorbed by mineral oil. Other non-condensable gas is exhausted through the exhaust fan.

Main Equipment: Extractor Condenser

Meal Desolventizing

Wet meal after solvent extraction containing solvent is conveyed to D.T.D.C for desolventizing, toasting, drying and cooling. The treated meal is then transported to grinding and packaging sections by drag conveyor.

Main Equipment: DTDC, Drag Conveyor

Mineral Oil Absorption

A small amount of solvent vapor and non-condensable gas enter the absorber in which solvent is absorbed by mineral oil below 40℃. Other non-condensable gas is exhausted through the exhaust fan. After absorbing the solvent, the mineral oil is heated to 105~110℃ and then the solvent is steam stripped out of the mineral oil under vacuum in the desorber.

The stripped mineral oil is cooled to below 40°C before being recycled into the absorption tower.

DC Heat Recovery

Exhaust air from DC drying layer contains a large amount of heat energy. It firstly enters the cyclone to remove entrained meal particles and then enters the waste-heat absorber and flows from the bottom to the top exhaust air outlet. Meanwhile, circulating water is pumped into the absorber from the spraying port at the top and flows downward, contacting the exhaust air in a counter-current manner. The heat in the exhaust air is passed into the circulating water through heat conduction and convection so that the temperature of the circulating water rises and can be reused.

Zero Liquid Discharge

Myande zero liquid discharge technology converts the wastewater into direct steam for DT layers by filtering, evaporating, and overheating to achieve the purpose of reducing wastewater discharge and saving water. Wastewater is continuously heated and circulated, the steam is flashed out, the concentration of wastewater rises, and the concentrate is added to the DT or DC to replenish the water.

Myande News & Insights

6,000TPD Soybean Crushing Plant Successfully Putting into Operation

On December 10, Qingdao Bohi Dongjiakou 6,000tpd soybean preparation and extraction production line undertaken by Myande Group was successfully put into operation. In terms of capacity, this is the largest single production line in China in operation. At the same time, compared with similar facilities, this new crushing line boasts markedly improvement in product stability, energy conservation and environmental protection, intelligent manufacturing, etc. Qingdao Bohi Dongjiakou Grain and Oil Industry Co., Ltd. is located in Dongjiakou Port, Qingdao West Coast New Area, which is invested and controlled by Shandong Bohai Industry Group. Starting from a cooking oil refining plant, Bohi Industry gradually formed two industrial chains: grain and oil processing and cellulosic fiber manufacturing. Since 2009, in cooperation with international engineering companies, Bohi Industry has built a 2,500tpd soybean crushing line in Boxing County of Shandong Province, two 6,000tpd soybean crushing lines in Qingdao Port and a 6,000tpd soybean crushing line in Beihai City and Zhanjiang City respectively, forming a soybean processing capacity of nearly 10 million tons per year. With good performances, Bohi Industry was awarded successively as one of the "China’s Top 500 Enterprises", one of the "Top 500 Manufacturing Enterprises in China" and one of the "Top 10 Edible Oil Enterprises in China's Food Industry".   Customized Design Since the early stage of communication, Myande team has always focused on the needs and values of the customer. In consideration of some drawbacks existing in Bohi’s old 6,000tpd soybean production line and the development trend of the industry, Myande presented a more reasonable design scheme and complete service guarantee system, and truly made the customer choose easy.     Intelligent Manufacturing The core equipment incorporated in this new crushing line, including crackers, flakers, E-type extractor, DTDC, etc., are Myande products with independent intellectual property rights of Myande Group. In particular, the control system of the flaker is integrated with the control system of preparation plant, which makes the operation more convenient and the technical indicators more controllable, also, according to the feedback from authoritative users, under the premise of same quality and output, the power consumption per ton of Myande Flaker is at the international leading level; The intelligent manufacturing ensures good product quality, low energy consumption and stable operation of the equipment during the whole project implementation.   A World-class Example of Carbon Neutrality Oriented toward the goal of "Carbon Neutrality", the plant adopts numerous latest energy saving technology, negative pressure drainage technology of E-type extractor, and DC hot air heat recovery technology to ensure the lowest energy consumption index. By adopting advanced environmental protection technology, the exhaust gas of the project is purified and the discharge standard exceeds the expected level, at the same time, the plant has also realized zero waste water discharge.

How to Utilize DC Exhaust Heat in Oil Mill?

D.T.D.C (Desolventizer, Toaster, Dryer and Cooler) is a meal desolventizing equipment in edible oil extraction plant for removing solvent contained in spent meal from the extractor by water vapor in DT. In order to ensure better storage and transportation of meal, it is necessary to dry the meal in DC to safe moisture and to cool it to safe temperature, normally to 12~13% moisture and less than 40℃.   In the meal drying process, the moisture in the hot meal will vaporize with the hot air, and wet air with high moisture content will be formed. Generally, the moisture content is 13~17%, and the temperature is 75~85℃. This vapor contains considerable stench substances and dust. The dust can be removed by the cyclone. With large scale extraction plants, this exhaust hot air from DC tend to pose a serious air pollution problem and may have a serious impact on the surrounding environment.   In order to solve this problem created by DC exhaust vapor and achieve the goal of coordination between environmental protection and production, Myande developed patented technology to utilize this hot exhaust vapor from DC after deodorization (Patent No.CN201320760659.8, CN201420685756.X, and CN201520639876.0).   This technology includes the comprehensive treatment of DC and other wet and dusty vapor. Based on this patented technology, Myande has developed two process designs, namely the indirect heat utilization and scrubbing heat utilization, which have been successfully used in several production lines to the high satisfaction of the plant management.   The indirect heat exchange system adopts stainless steel plate heat exchanger in which hot air from cyclone outlet exchanges heat with the cool air from blower inlet directly. In general, the cool air temperature will be increased to more than 40℃, as shown in Figure 1-1.   Scrubbing heat exchange system uses water to spray the hot air from the cyclone outlet in order to form hot water, which after filtration, will be used to heat the cooling air from DC inlet. At the same time, it can be used to heat the air used for the drying section of oilseed pre-pressing plant, thereby reducing steam consumption, see Figure 1-2.  

Energy-Saving And Emission Reduction Reconstruction For Edible Oil Mill

In recent years, following the development trend of oils & fats processing industry, Jiushan Group launched a series of initiatives aimed to reconstruct its factories to improve environmental performances by reducing energy consumption and reducing emission.   In October 2017, Jiusan Group commissioned Myande Group to carry out the technological renovation program in Guangxi Huiyu factory to save energy, reduce consumption and emission. After successful completion of this program, both power and steam consumption has been greatly reduced. In particular, steam consumption of the DC alone reduced by 10 kg.   In March 2018, Jiusan Group conducted bidding process for similar technical modifications aimed at improving environmental performance for 5 production lines located in Dalian, Tianjin, Tieling, and Changchun. The major objectives of these programs include recovery of waste heat from DC and reduction of dust and offensive odour emission. Myande through the bidding process was awarded contracts for all five programs.   DTDC is used for high-temperature desolventizing in the extraction plant while DT removes solvent from the wet meals with vapor. To ensure better storage and transportation of meals, it is always necessary to dry and cool the meal safe moisture and temperature. Normally, moisture should be within 12 ~ 13% range and the temperature should be less than 40 ℃ (or no 10 ℃ more than ambient temperature).   When drying meals, the moisture in hot meals will vaporize with the blowing of hot air, thus forming wet air with high moisture, usually range from 13% to 17%, and the temperature is 75 ~ 85 ℃. A large number of fishy flavor substances and dusts are contained in the wet air. From cyclone, small dust particles less than 25μm still will be discharged, taking away a lot of thermal energy and causing heat loss and environmental pollution.   With the expansion of oil seeds crushing factory, the exhaust emission from DC as the key point of heat energy loss in extraction plant is becoming a serious air pollution source. To solve the problem of exhaust gas pollution, coordinate environmental protection and production, at the same time, balance environmental governance and production benefits, Myande has developed a number of patent technologies for DC hot air waste heat utilization and deodorization (patent number: CN201320760659.8;CN201420685756. X; CN201520639876.0), which not only comprehensively control DC and other wet and dusty gases, but also recycle thermal energy.   At present, many production lines are running smoothly in China, which has been well received by customers. The waste heat scrubbing tower developed and manufactured by Myande is the core equipment of the process, which adopts washing water and hot vapor to conduct back-flushing for heat exchange. The anti-blocking grid packing mechanism will not only increase the heat transfer efficiency and prevent the internal blockage, but also effectively remove the dust from the DC exhaust and reduce the fishy flavor of the exhaust.
