Sediments will be left and jams may appear in the process of oil squeezing, so how to deal with them becomes a question.

Generally, oil presses can extract the clear oil on the surface and leave the remainders accumulated at the bottom to naturally precipitate. If there is the special storage location for the extracted oil, they will turn clear after having been stored for a week. Although the storage time is as long as possible, it’s unnecessary to store them for too long. Then filter them with a gauze, if the amount is small, extract them with a woven bag used for loading flour, or filter with a filter pump if there is a large amount.

There is a blade installed on the pressing cage of a large-scale screw oil press. The blade deep in the chamber is aimed at each distance circle to prevent oil plants from slipping, rotating and stopping back and is used for adjusting the thickness of oil cake to correspondingly control the pressure of the chamber and decrease the oil residue.  

So feed fried oil plants gradually into the feeding hopper if too many oil plants have been placed into the hopper at the beginning of squeezing to get rid of jam through constant pre-pressing. Supposed that oil plants break appears in the process of squeezing, maybe it is due to the jam of chamber resulted from too many oil plants feeding. Therefore, the feeding of oil plants should be gradual and even. Once it is jammed, cut off power timely and stop feeding. Then open the discharging board, retreat the screw shaft and remove the oil plants within it to restart squeezing.
