Level Sensors for Soyabean Oil Processing
Rapid rise in consumption of soyabean oil make the soya industry more demanding. Sapcon provide level sensors for typical applications which combat any condition as this industry deals with high temperature process.
The process starts from removing impurities by cleaning the soyabean and preparing it for dehulling. For storage section use vibrating fork type level sensor Vital which prevents overflow and also has polished tines which is ideal for hygienic applications.
Further beans are cracked into equal and small pieces by passing through corrugated roller mills and the cracked seeds are then heated to 165°F. To resist the temperature upto 250°C it is recommended to use SLA Series with Sub Probe Type: Extra Sturdy (XS) and vibrating fork Vital for point level switching.
The moisture content is reduced in drying process to store the material for long time. The drying process can be done in bins by blowing large volume of dry air through air. SLA Series with full PTFE insulation probe is recommended.
Solvent Extraction Plant
The process of extracting oil from soya flakes by treating it with solvent like hexane. This process consist of extractor feed hopper which need level sensor to prevent overspilling. For continous monitoring, MPILC is recommended which can be calibrated without completely filling or emptying the hopper and SLA Series with Sub Probe Type: Extra Strong can be used for point level switching.
The solvent must be removed from soya flakes and soyabean oil both.To remove the remaining solvent from the soyabean oil deoiled toaster is used. Sapcon provides Elefant which is specially designed for this application and has rugged design which withstand in any tough enviroment.
