JJ-Lurgi has been able to complete the commissioning work for Sinograin Oils & Fats Industrial Dongguan Co. Ltd. in just under a month despite COVID-19, successfully overcoming challenges and restrictions that the pandemic created.
The project is our largest oilseed crushing and solvent extraction plant to-date, designed to process soybean and rapeseeds with the Twin-Track Sliding Cell (SC) Extractor. The machine is the first of its kind available globally. It is multi-seed capable, allowing it to process a variety of seeds such as soybean, rapeseed, palm kernel, and sunflower
seeds, and can handle capacities above 5,000 tonnes per day.
This new technology, debuting in Sinograin’s extraction plant, has achieved a 20% and 30% reduction in the consumption of steam and hexane respectively, as compared to plants of similar scope.
The Twin-Track SC Extractor is based on the third-generation model of JJ-Lurgi’s SC Extractor, first conceived in the early 1940s. It is also available as a Single-Track SC Extractor.
