The production structure of the enterprise is determined by the technological requirements for the acceptance, drying, cleaning, storage and processing of sunflower seeds, rapeseed and soybeans into oil and meal, which are the main finished products. The company has implemented and is constantly improving the quality and food safety management system in accordance with the DSTU ISO 22000 standards.
Extraction of cake and production of extraction oil
The cake at the exit from the press contains oil in the amount of 16 - 21%. The extraction of oil from this cake is carried out in the extraction department by the extraction method, i.e. by treating the cake with a hexane solvent in an extractor. Intermediate products come out of the extractor - not toasted meal and miscella. These products contain solvent that must be removed. For this, miscella is fed to a distillation unit, where distillation is carried out - removing the solvent from the oil. The meal enters the toaster, where the solvent is stripped off.
At this stage, the following are developed:
- extraction oil, which is sent for purification to the hydration section.
- non-granulated toasted meal, which goes to the meal granulation department.
All finished products (oil, meal, pelleted husk) are shipped by rail in railway tanks, grain carriers or containers, as well as by road. Phosphatide concentrate is shipped by road.
On the territory of the plant there are 4 dead-end railway tracks for 55 units of rolling stock with the ability to move cars from one track to another.
Indoor workshop for automated loading simultaneously for 8 railway tanks for oil and for 8 railway grain carriers for meal.
Loading capacity into railway wagons is up to 1200 tons per day of oil and 1200 tons of meal.
The total length of the factory railways is 1 km. There are also 2 rail scales.
