Also, for fat uses, the oil can be hydrogenated and used for margarine,shortening etc.

The extracted meal can be used as animal feed since the protein content is 18-30% on undecorticated meal while it is of 35-45% on decorticated. Hulls are used in the fertilser industry and also as fuels. 80% of lint are usually removed and serve in industries of carpets and of lower quality textiles and after chemical transformation, in industries of cellulose, collodion, cellulose acetate.

Cotton Seed Extraction Plant

In order to extract oil from cotton seeds, firstly you should entry the seeds into the shaker room for cleaning of cotton seeds, post cleaning, the cleaned cotton seed is passed through the grin sand for the removal of linters from the cotton seed. As a next step cotton seeds are passed through hullers for the removal of tough seed coats. The seeds at this stage in its form are obtained to be crushed in Expellers, this helps in the partial oil recovery from the seeds. After crushing the seeds the oil is extracted and the left over pulp is called as the cake, the oil contained in this cake is processed through a solvent extraction for recovery of the oil in this complex form. Post this process the recovered oil is washed and refined in order to obtain edible cottonseed oil.
