Castor Oil Manufacturing Process - Extraction & Refining
Industrial or commercial castor oil production include several oil manufacturing process, such as castor seeds processing, oil extraction and oil refinery. The castor oil extraction is divided into mechanical pressing and solvent extraction based on the production capacity, investment and requirements. For small scale castor oil production plant, mechanical pressing method is more cost effective, while for the large scale castor oil manufacturing, solvent extraction method is more suitable.

- Castor Seeds Processing
Just like other vegetable seeds, the castor beans will be processed before oil extraction. Firstly, check the castor beans. Is it wet or dry. If the castor bean is wet, it should be dried and then dehulled to get rid of the shells to get the castor seeds. Then, the castor seeds are cleaned through cleaning machine to remove impurities, metals, etc., later is cooked by steam cooker or electrical cooker to concrete the protein so as to improve the oil extracting rate.

Castor Oil Production Process - Mechnical Pressing
- Castor Oil Pressing or Extracting
The processed castor seeds are loaded into the Screw Oil Press Machine (small scale castor oil press machine) to squeeze oil out from the seeds. If the castor oil manufacturing plant adopts solvent extraction, after pressing by the screw oil expeller, the oil cake is crushed into coarse meal for next solvent extraction.
Castor Oil Extraction Process - Solvent Extraction
- Castor Oil Refinery
The crude castor oil both from the mechanical pressing or solvent extraction should be refined to get the pure and functional castor oil. The castor oil refining process includes degumming, neutralization, bleaching, deodorization. Degumming is to remove hydrates, phosphates and other impurities. The gum is then processed in to lecithin. The neutralization is to remove residual phosphatides by caustica refining.The bleaching process is to colors, odors and other impurities and residual soaps. The deodorization is to remove volatile flavors, odors and odors compounds. (Related Post: Mini Oil Refinery Plant Cost >>)

Castor Oil Production Business Plan
An individual that wants to start castor oil production business or firm should first consider having a castor oil production business plan. This is a vital plan of action a business creates to penetrate the market and also to maximize profits in the business. Some of the techniques to consider in starting a successful castor oil production business are:
- Learning More about Castor Oil Production
This is the first step in starting an oil production company or firm. An entrepreneur should study the requirements of an oil manufacturing firm in terms of capital, market, competition and technology. The business owner should also create a strategy and plan. This includes a target market, proposed location, capital start-up, finances, and other operating cost. It is important to note that before choosing a place for the oil processing firm one should consider the availability of raw materials, mode of transport and also the market. A suitable location will be very close to the raw material sources and the targeted market which reduces transportation and supply costs
- Ensure Stable Castor Beans Supply
A business that wants to venture into oil production has two options required to obtain raw materials for castor oil extraction. One way is a business having its farm of oil seeds cultivation or buying oil seeds from the supplier. A potential business should choose an option that will reduce the cost of production and other operating costs.
- Obtaining Funds and Finances
If an individual requires funds for buying products, materials and other resources then he or she should plan ways of obtaining funds for the business. If the manufacturing plant depicts the business to be lucrative and promising then it will attract investors and one can easily obtain funds from lending institutions and banks.
- Select Suitable Castor Oil Processing Machinery
One should be able to choose a processing line that comprises all necessary machines with durable and solid structures with good compatibility and fine properties. The plant or machine should be portrayed as being of reasonable cost, safe, excellent quality, continuous operation and highly advanced in technology.
- Scientific Management on the Castor Oil Plant
After the castor oil processing plant completed, it is important to carry out scientific management on the employees/operators. At the same time, a good businessman would be keen to have the suitable ways of marketing and distributing the product into different areas and localities.
