Groundnut Oil Extraction Process: Regular vs. Cold Pressing
One of the common types of groundnut oil is expeller-pressed oil (Different from chemical solvent extraction oil). To create expeller-pressed oil, you need to press the peanut through a cavity, using pressure and friction to extract the groundnut oil. While seeds’ remains will form into groundnut oil cake that makes excellent animal feed.
The pressing methods can be categorized into ordinary pressing and cold pressing, both of which are essentially the same in principle mentioned above. The difference is that cold pressing requires the press to extract oil from peanut seeds at a temperature of 60°C (122°F).
► Cold Pressing Process: Peanut kernel → cleaning → crushing → oil pressing → filtering → cold pressed peanut oil
► Hot Pressing Process: Peanut kernel → cleaning → crushing → cooking/steaming→ oil pressing → filtering → expeller pressed peanut oil
Notice: Because peanut kernel oil content is as high as 40-50%, ABC Machinery suggests using the second pressing method to press groundnut oil to improve the oil yield.
The pre-pressing process extracts about 76%-78% of the peanut oil from peanuts. Appropriate increase of moisture (about 4%) and lower temperature (107-121℃) during pre-pressing of peanuts are conducive to lowering the protein denaturation rate. The residual oil in the peanut cake after pre-pressing is about 12-14%, and then the oil cake is pressed.
As you decide between standard-pressed and cold-pressed groundnut oil, it’s essential to note that both are useful for different applications. For example, cold-pressed oils usually provide more health benefits, making them an excellent choice if you’re creating oils for consumption. Expeller-pressed oils are often ideal for soaps, lubricants, and metal workings.

|Screw oil press machines
|Work by pressing the groundnuts with a continuous screw
|Cost-effective for small to medium-scale operations
|High-quality oil, can be used for cold pressing
|Lower upfront costs
|Simple operation and maintenance，but need more frequent maintenance
|Hydraulic oil press machines
|Use hydraulic cylinders to exert pressure on the groundnuts
|Suitable for small to medium-sized businesses, non-continuous production
|High-quality oil, can be used for cold pressing
|Relatively higher initial cost
|require less maintenance
|Solvent extraction machines/plant
|Using a solvent (often hexane) to extract oil from the groundnuts
|Ideal for large-scale commercial production
|sometimes affect the oil quality due to the use of chemicals
|higher initial cost
|Complex production process, require less maintenance
► Groundnut Oil Refining Process: Once the crude peanut oil has been extracted through pressing or solvent extraction processes, it needs to be refined using edible oil refinery plant to remove impurities and improve its quality so that it is suitable for food or industrial use.
