Hemp-seed oil is a nutritious oil made from the seeds of cannabis plants through cold pressing technology. It has a dark to clear light green color and a natural, mild nutty flavor for salads and sauces. As an edible cooking oil, the hemp-seed oil is often described as a “superfood” containing important nutrients including amino acids, fiber, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, as well as a range of important vitamins and minerals, such as Vitamin E, magnesium, zinc, iron and phosphorus etc. However, because the hemp seed oil contains linoleic acid, it is best not to heat it when cooking. Hemp seed oil can also be infused into skin care and body care products to nourish skin, nails and hair.
SIMEC specializes in plant oil cold pressing technology and has many years of practical experience in extracting a variety kind of oil raw materials. One of the reputable function foods suppliers in the US has purchased one set of SIMEC HOP-50/280 hydraulic oil press to produce hemp-seed oil. The working pressure of this hydraulic cold oil press can reach maximum 60 MPa, which means that the raw materials was pressed by a Max. 380 tons of vertical press force during the extraction. Under such great mechanical pressure, hemp seed oil is extracted at room temperature.
The two glittering material barrels made of food grade ss304 stainless steel are obtained through the ultra-precise CNC lathe machining. The wall thickness of the final material barrels is 16 mm, so that they are adequate for the heavy applied loads and deflections etc. In addition to the two barrels, the other parts and components directly in contact with raw material or oil are made of food grade ss304 stainless steel as well.
The holes on the barrels are drilled automatically by the self-designed digital controlled drilling machines, which ensures the precise machining and reliable quality consistency. The holes on the barrels are specially arrayed, and the hole pattern is distinctively designed. As a result, the oil flows out of the holes smoothly.
