Production

Production process
the oil extraction plant «Yuzhnyi Polyus»
01
Seed acceptance
Sunflower seeds get to the plant only after the approval of our own laboratory. That's why we always have high-quality raw materials.
02
Cleaning and drying
Cleaning, drying, collapsing (destruction) of the seed peel and separating it from the kernel is the next stage of the sunflower oil production process. Then the seeds are crushed. The resulting mass is subjected to hydrothermal treatment and then fried.
03
Pressing
The prepared seed is heated before extracting the oil. So the oil retains not only all its useful properties, but also becomes more fragrant. Then the oil is settled, filtered, and further processed.
04
Oilcake
The oilcake obtained in the extraction process is granulated and used in agriculture as a high-protein concentrated animal feed.
05
Refining
At this stage, several operations are performed at once.
Settling, filtration and centrifugation make it possible to clean sunflower oil from mechanical impurities.
In the process of hydration, protein and mucous substances are removed.
At the neutralization stage, free fatty acids, heavy metals and pesticides are removed.
At the next stage, free fatty acids are excreted and the oil is bleached.
Deodorization destroys odorous substances that lead to oxidation.
All these stages of oil purification from undesirable impurities allow to increase its shelf life.

Freezing allows you to clean the oil from waxy turbid substances and give it transparency.

Sunflower oil at our plant goes through all stages of purification.
06
Packing
We have an automated high-performance sunflower oil filling line.
First, the polyethylene terephthalate blanks are loaded into a machine that blows sunflower oil bottles out of them.
The finished bottles arrive at the oil filling line. After filling the bottle, it closes. Here, a label is pasted on the bottles and the date of production is printed. Filling of bottles with sunflower oil is controlled automatically, allowing to minimize the percentage of defects.

Our line eliminates the possibility of sunflower oil getting on the outside of the bottle. Thanks to this, a good presentation of the oil is guaranteed.

Filled bottles are packed in corrugated cardboard boxes.

Ready-made boxes are placed on Euro pallets and are handed over to customers in this form.

We can put your logo on boxes and bottles with sunflower oil, if you wish.
