Screw Expeller, Komet Single O
The effects of physical parameters of a screw press machine on oil yield of seeds were studied using a KOMET Screw Oil Expeller. Different nozzle size (6, 10, and 12mm), extraction speed (21, 54, 65 and 98 rpm) and diameter of shaft screw (8 and 11 mm) were applied in this study. Different nozzle size, diameter of shaft screw and rotational speed do effect the percentage of oil yield. By using shaft screw with diameter of 8 mm had resulted to the decrease of oil yield with the increase of nozzle size and rotational speed.
