Protein feed from oilseeds – dried with Büttner's drying systems
Oilseed meal & cake are the residues remaining after removal of the greater part of the oil from oilseeds.
The most common oilseeds are soya been, rapeseed, sunflower seed and cottonseed. The residues are rich in protein and most are valuable feeds for livestock. There are several techniques for extracting oil from oilseeds. Two common oilseed extraction processes are solvent extraction and mechanical extraction using a screw press. The different processes result in different oilseed meal qualities.
Büttner's single-pass drum dryers, tube bundle dryers (rotary dryer) or tube drum dryers are well suited to condition oilseed or to dry oilseed cakes and meals.
