Oilseed Cooker

Vertical Cooker Introduction

Vertical cooker is the main equipment to cook the oilseeds before pressing in the edible oil production line. Other cooking machines include rotary cooker, flat bottom cooker, and hot air roasting machine. Flakes are wet, heated, steamed and cooked in the cooker so that to destroy the cellular structure, denature protein to make the oils agglomerate, change the plasticity and reduce the viscosity of the oil, which is favorable for pressing. Cooking effect has a direct impact on the smooth running of the whole oil production process, the oil yield and the quality of oil and oil cake.

Vertical cooker is used for wetting and cooking the flakes from the flaking roll to meet the technological requirements of oil pressing or extracting, enhancing oil yield and improving the quality of crude oil. Vertical cooker is used in large scale oilseeds processing. It is suitable for cooking the flakes of peanut, soybean, rapeseed, sesame, cottonseed, camellia seed, sunflower seeds, copra, corn germ, etc. Vertical cooker can also be used as conditioner.

Vertical stack cooker adopts steam or conduction oil as heat source. The bottom and side of each layer have a steam jacket. The indirect team is introduced into the jacket to heat the flakes. Valves are adopted to adjust the steam so that to control the material temperature. The agitator blades at each layer mix the materials to ensure uniform cooking. The steam pipe under the agitator blades of the first layer rotates with the blades to spray the direct steam into the materials.

Features of Vertical Cooker

1.Large handling capacity, small occupation area, low power consumption, easy operation, and maintenance.

2.The gear has a long service life, low noise, and steady transmission.

3.The number of layers can be designed according to your requirement.

4.Adopt exhaust device at each layer except the first layer to eliminate the evaporated vapor.

5.Adopt automatic flow controlling gate at each layer to control the materials discharging.

6.Adopt pointer to indicate the material height.
