Rice bran oil extraction equipment is a complex and sophisticated machinery that requires proper maintenance to ensure its optimal performance and durability. Here are some tips on how to maintain rice bran oil extraction equipment:
Regularly check the oil level, pressure, temperature, and flow of the hydraulic system. If there is any abnormality, stop the machine immediately and troubleshoot the problem. Replace the hydraulic oil and filter every 6 months or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Lubricate the moving parts of the machine, such as bearings, gears, chains, and screws, with appropriate grease or oil. Follow the lubrication schedule and frequency recommended by the manufacturer.
Clean the machine after each use to remove any residual oil, solvent, or meal. Use a soft cloth or brush to wipe the surface of the machine and the oil tank. Do not use water or detergent to clean the machine, as it may cause rust or corrosion.
Inspect the electrical components and wiring of the machine regularly. Make sure there is no loose connection, short circuit, or damage. Replace any worn or broken parts as soon as possible.
Store the machine in a dry, ventilated, and dust-free place when not in use. Cover the machine with a protective cloth or plastic sheet to prevent dust accumulation.
