Biomass Oil Extraction

Due to customer demands that companies move from artificial oils to natural oils, there will be a continuing surge in growth for companies that are able to capitalize on this market.  Processall’s plow mixing extraction technology has been a major player in this growing market for some time. Processall has years of experience in everything from steam injection extraction to maceration (Organic solvent-based) extractions for our clients.  Our equipment offers unique abilities due to the fluidized bed nature of our extractors to greatly improve the efficiency of necessary oil removal in a timelier manner. 

Plow mixing extraction enabled a client of ours to reduce the processing time of one product from 3 weeks to 10 hours.  The material’s previous procedure the company used involved recirculating solvent over a bed of organic media to extract the needed oils from the system.  The benefit of plow mixing extraction is due to the biomass moving in a fluidized bed maximizing the potential solvent contact points in the system and enabling faster extractions.

Processall’s plow mixing technology gives oil extractions manufacturers a leg up on the competition. Listed below are some of the benefits of moving toward plow mixing technologies for the extraction industry.

  • Faster extraction of essential oils from the system than other methods
  • Ability extracts the essential oils and dries the biomass for usage in other products in one unit
  • The fluidized bed Technology maximizes solvent to organic media contact points
  • Spray nozzles and direct injection ports to enable extraction solvents to be added to the system.
  • Reducing the need for multiunit operations enabling smaller footprints on the plant floor.
  • Thermal jackets and pressure control allow for optimal temperature and pressures to help achieve the optimal extraction point for the material.
