How Citronella Oil is Extracted?

In general, citronella oil can be extracted by either of four methods: traditional chemical solvent extraction method, press & expelling machine, supercritical extraction equipment and sub-critical low temperature citronella oil extraction machine developed by ABC Machinery. Since it has special outstanding advantages, we recommend sub-critical low temperature extraction machine for the processing of citronella oil. The advantages over the other methods are:
  • Compared to the press machine, the subcritical low temperature citronella oil extraction equipment has a higher yield-rate and the quality of the final citronella oil obtained is higher.
  • Our sub-critical solvent extraction equipment gives no solvent residue. Further, it performs solvent recycling and has a wide range of applications.
  • This technology has minimal requirements, performs large scale citronella oil production and requires low investment as opposed to supercritical fluid extraction.

Therefore, the best choice for citronella oil extraction is the subcritical low temperature oil extraction machine. It fits all needs, whether large or small scale citronella oil production. The production capacity range for our citronella oil extraction machine per day is 0.1L to 200 Tons.

Extraction Process of Citronella Oil Extraction Machine - Low Temperature

Low Temperature Citronella Oil Extraction Machine

For counter-current extraction, pretreated citronella materials are soaked in the solvent at normal temperatures and specific pressures (i.e. 0.3MPa-0.7MPa). The mixture of citronella oil is drawn out subsequently. The solvent contained in the mixture is then gasified. Crude citronella is obtained from the mixture as a result. After condensation and compression, the gasified solvent is recycled.

Facts about Citronella Oil Extraction Machine

high quality citronella oil through low temperature extractionAs sub-critical fluid is used to extract the required product. The main citronella oil extraction equipment is sealed, creating low pressure and oxygen-free condition. The best solvents to use for citronella extraction are propane and butane. This is because these solvents have strong ability to dissolve, are cheap and are safe. The sub-critical low temperature citronella oil extraction machine requires low investment, produces minimal residual oil meal. More importantly, the active ingredients and protein within the citronella materils will not be destroyed. This is due to the fact that the entire oil extraction process is done at low temperature.
