The main Shaft
Of the Expeller is water cooled and is of alloy steel construction, fitted with High Pressure Worms, hard faced, with a highly wear resistant alloy. The worm arrangement has been designed to expel the maximum recoverable oil from oil bearing materials.
The main Worm Shaft can be withdrawn very easily without disturbing the gear section in any way. Pressing worms and collars can be changed without disturbing the main shaft. The thrust of the pressure worms is taken upon large spherical roller thrust bearings.
The feeding hopper has a vertical feed device, which compacts the seed coming from the heating kettle, and press it uniformly into the cage.
The Cake at the Discharge end
Of the main cage is controlled by manually operated arrangement which is so simple that the choke gear is independent of the main drive and there is no possibility of a sudden load being placed on Expeller motor. A motorized system can also be provided at an extra cost.
