For high capacity plants above 500 tpd, the Crown Model III continuous loop shallow bed extractor offers the benefits of low power requirements, excellent component life, ease of operation and the capability of high operating capacities. The Crown design is the most efficient of several methods of extracting vegetable oils from oil-bearing seeds. It maximizes extraction efficiency while at the same time minimizes steam consumption. The flake bed is turned completely over, allowing the solvent to contact flakes from all sides. Self-cleaning drainage screens — stationary, V-bar screens are swept clean by the continuously moving bed of material. The incline of the chain before discharge minimizes the possibility of solvent overflow to the DT. Continuous discharge of flakes improves DT performance. Easy to assemble and expand.
