Modern expanding technology greatly improves oil yield of oil seeds. After pretreatment process, some oil seeds are of large-sized powder and oil impassability, the extraction process will be hard with high solvent consumption and residual oil. Expanding technology is adopted in order to solve the problem. After expansion, the material becomes larger, more permeable, and the inner oil channel is fully opened, which makes the extraction much easier. Under the same conditions, residual oil and solvent consumption will decrease greatly, and the yield will improve 50-80%. Expansion can also passivate antinutritional factors in soybean—urease, improve palatability and nutritive value. Expanding technology is an important means of energy conservation in modern oil production industry.
