Another thing that influences oil yield is which way do you use to extract sunflower oil.

A single sunflower oil press machine must extract less oil than the large sunflower seeds oil pressing line, because a series of oil seeds preparation machines can increase the oil yield of sunflower seeds. Through cleaning, dehull, and flaking, the small, black sunflower oil seeds can produce almost double the amount of sunflower oil. However, the sunflower seeds cakes still have oil residual, and should be sent to sunflower oil solvent extraction plant to extract sunflower oil again.
