Eucalyptus Oil Extraction Methods
The conventional extraction methods of eucalyptus oil include Steam Distillation, Solvent Extraction and Squeezing Method, but all of these method has some disadvantages, such as low yield, low purity and residual toxic solvents. Besides, the functional components within eucalyptus oil is damaged. So, for these conventional extraction methods, it is difficult to meet the demand of current oil industry for high quality of eucalyptus oil. In recent year, supercritical fluid extraction technology has been used to extract and analyze natural products and show its unique advantages. But its operation pressure usually above 25MPa, and need entrainer. High pressure limits the amplification of the effective volume of supercritical fluid extraction equipment. Meanwhile, the high equipment manufacturing and operating costs restrict the application of the technology in eucalyptus oil production. Based on the market demand, ABC Machinery independently developed and designed mini production machine for eucalyptus oil extracting that adopts advanced subcritical low teperature extraction method to extract eucalyptus oil efficiently.

Operating Steps and Condition of Eucalyptus Oil Extraction Machine
- Pretreated material can be loaded into the extraction tank, the extraction tank is sealed and the vacuum pump is opened to vacuum the extraction tank
- Infuse n-butane (the proportion between raw material and solvent is expected to be 1.5:1). Through the extraction tank jacket heating hot water, the extraction process of temperature should be controlled at 40 ˚ C around, the pressure is 0.5 Mpa. After 40 mins extraction, transfer the extract into evaporation tank)
- Again, infuse n-butane into the extraction tank for next extraction. The extraction process is about 4 times. The whole extraction process is also called counter-current extraction
- The extract from extraction tank will be transferred into the evaporation tank. At the heating coming from the evaporation tank bottom interlayer, the n-butane within the extract will continuously gasified. And the n-butane after gasification will go through condensation and cooking by and finally compressed into as liquid n-butane for recycling uses. When the n-butane in the evaporator is completely vaporized, the remaining product is the target product of extraction.
