The roads in the factory should be hardened to prevent dust and water accumulation. Plant greening should be kept at a proper distance from the production workshop, and vegetation should be maintained regularly to prevent the breeding of pests.

Interfunctional Settings and layouts

According to the production process, the functions are divided into the following: raw material warehouse, frying workshop, pressing workshop, packing warehouse, dressing room, packing room and finished products warehouse. According to the function of each function, according to different health control requirements, distinguish between general operation and clean operation area. Raw material warehouse, packaging material warehouse and finished products warehouse are general operation areas, which are not under high control. The frying workshop is between general operation area and clean operation area, which belongs to the link part, while the pressing workshop and packaging workshop belong to clean operation area.

According to the process, the layout of the function room is designed, but there are still some places that need to be adjusted according to the actual situation. The first is to clean and fry in a workshop, frying process needs to consider the fuel alone; Secondly, the oil residue storage and pressing workshop should be closed in time connection door, so generally set buffer storage; Secondly, it is the packing material warehouse. The inner packing materials are generally placed separately from the outer packing materials. The inner packing materials generally belong to the clean packing and can be set up separately. Thirdly, there is no separate semi-finished product storage tank and finished oil storage tank, because most vegetable oil is connected by pipelines, without contact with the outside world. Finally, there is no set between the washing, vegetable oil pressing workshop is generally greasy, so the cleaning work is an important part of the health protection.
