Piteba Nut & Seed Oil Expeller Oil Press Shtf Eco Raw:
THE CHINESE PITEBA COPIES ARE MADE OF STAINLESS STEEL WHICH IN MOVING FRICTION PARTS CAN BE TOXIC! THE FACT THAT THIS STEEL COMES OUT OF CHINA ADDS EVEN MORE CONCERN!
There is no stainless steel in the press, screw press, tube, and press head in the Piteba. Stainless steel can be toxic in a machine with movement and friction since it contains chromium and nickel which are toxic to humans.
Oil production ofnutsand/orseeds with a screw presshave different rules than other food production such as meat, milk or juice. Nut andseed oil is anti-corrosive because it contains hardly any water. In contrast, milk contains about 87% water. In dairy production,there isno wear material from pipes or silo tanks. However, in an oil press,there is more friction and wearfrom machine parts. With stainless steel, the press screw willwear and release thechromium and nickel (found in stainless steel) which are toxic to humans.Therefore, the press and parts in a screw oil press should be made of hardened steel, not stainless steel.
NUTS AND SEEDS ONLY. THE PITEBA DOES NOT WORK WITH OLIVES!
The other presses you see on are copies made in China. They contain parts that contain lead. The body of the unit is painted instead of powder coated meaning that the paint on the china copy will melt off and fill your home withsmoke. The original Piteba is powder coated and is not affected by heat. You might save a buck or two buying from China but at what cost?
The PitebaManual Nut and Seed OilPress isthe original designmade in Holland with quality parts,and food safty in mind. The Piteba is still made by the small family owned company that came up with the original design. There is at least one illegal copy out there that is made in Asia where food safty,quality and employee treatment are of little concern.This is a great unit. Any concerns about its quality please check my response. I have sold 1000s of these over the last 5 years and only have very happy customers.
The Piteba oil press is over $150.00 US dollars plus foreign transaction fees, from your credit cards,and customs fee. Buying from us will save you at least $10.00 to $15.00 and you will get your product in 2 to 4 days.We've used our Piteba MANY times to pressmacademia nuts and sesame seeds.It works great. We've sold some to friends of ours as well and they've successfully oiled hemp seeds, kukui nuts, coconuts and sunflower seeds. Its a great item for people who want fresh, raw nut and seed oils but don't want to pay the extremely high price for it. The Piteba would also be great for soap makers who want to make their own oils.
There are many videos on youtube showing it in use.
The press does not come with the top hopper or a container to catch the oil. The Piteba is made to to shipped anywhere in the world with low shipping costs. It comes with everything else pictured. The hopper is made by cutting the top off a plastic pop or water bottle. A small jar is used to catch the oil.
Item will be shipped via USPS Priority Mail medium flat rate box.We are only charging actuall shippingcost. If you would like insurance, please let me know so we can get you a price.
The Piteba must be mounted to a counter or work surface. You can also mount it to a board and then clamp the board to acounter usinga woodworking clamp.
- Press uses a combination of heat and grinding to release oil from seeds and nuts
- Will also make peanut butter and other nut butters (use roasted peanuts)
- Completely non-electric
- Produces healthy oils for cooking, making soaps, paints, and many other things
- Press cake (what is left after oil is pressed) can be used in animal feed or as fertilizer
- Press needs to be mounted--can be on a table, wall or the floor
- Press up to 8 cups of oil per hour and process up to about 11 lbs of seeds per hour
- Hand-made in Holland
- 8"H, handle is 11¼" L, weighs 4.75 lb
Will process oils from:
- Babassu Kernel
- Cocoa Bean
- Niger Seed
- Oil Palm Kernel
- Pumpkin Seed
- Sesame Seed
- Soya Bean
- Sunflower Seed
- MANY OTHERS not listed
- Oil press
- Bottle for "lamp", wick and wick holder
- 1 elastic band (red) for securing the "lamp" to the press
- Mounting hardware
Extra Supplies NOT included:
- Funnel: use a plastic soft drink bottle--cut about 6" from the opening (OD of the outlet should be about 1¹⁄8")
- Colored lamp oil (use colored so it is not confused with pressed oil)
- 2 containers: 1 to catch the oil and 1 the press cake
- Sift seeds and nuts through sieve to remove unwanted particles, stones, straw, etc.
- Seeds and nuts should be well dried (8-10% moisture content)
- No deshelling required (except for peanuts, walnuts and hazelnuts)
- Make sure the washer on the end of the expeller screw is greased sufficiently with vegetable oil
- Let sit about 10 min. after lighting and placing container under chimney so press cage is heated sufficiently
- Depending on the type of seed or nut used, the adjustment bolt may or may not be used
- Crank should be turned clockwise--speed of cranking is determined by what is being processed
- Clean oil slit regularly to keep it from getting clogged
- Clean unit immediately so press cake doesn't harden; if press cake can't be removed, soak in warm water
- The press cake in the cap can also be softened before use (when already hardened) by heating the press before use for 30 min. Without removing the cake in the cap, you can start pressing (only if the same seeds or nuts are pressed). This will save a lot of cleaning time.
- Oil should sit at room temperature for a few days so that the solids will settle--no filter is needed
- Oil should be stored in a closed container in a cool, dark place until used
PITEBA oil expeller: suitable for almost all oil containing seeds with at least 25% oil in the seed
IMPORTANT FOR GOOD RESULTS
- Moisture contents of the seed should be 8-10%
- Too dry (artificially dried seeds or dried in arid regions): press cake in cap is stone hard / no oil production
- Too moist: press cake flows back to the oil slit / no oil production
Properties of the PITEBA oil expeller:
- High extraction efficiency
- Continuous expelling
- Manually operated (no external power source required)
- Almost no maintenance required
- Seeds can be expelled including seed coat
- Simple operation
- Compact Tool (2.2 kilo)
Quality Requirements of the Seeds:
- Seed has to be well dried, but not too dry (8-10% moisture content)
- No deshelling required except for groundnut, walnut and hazelnut
- Seeds should be freed from any stones, sticks and sand before expelling
- Big seeds such as walnut, hazelnut, oil palm kernel, coconut and babassu need reduction in size but should not be ground
- Before starting daily expelling: grease washer at the end of the shaft of the expeller screw with vegetable oil and insert the screw within the press cage
- Mount press cage cap and terminal adjustment bolt--the use of the terminal adjustment bolt is indicated for every type of seed processed
The thread of the press cage cap has to be cleaned before turning the cap on the press cage. If this is not done, the cast iron cap may burst!
- The press cage should be heated for 10 minutes with the small oil burner, as provided, before starting work--the burner remains burning also during expelling
- The expeller is operated by turning the crank clockwise
- The seed enters through the funnel into the expeller screw--the screw moves the seed towards the press cage outlet; near the press cage outlet the seed is ground and exposed to a very high pressure
- The oil is expelled near the press cage outlet and runs against the direction of the flow of the seed to the oil outlet--the oil needs time to move to the oil outlet
- The press cake leaves the press cage at the end of the cap or the small holes depending on the use of the terminal adjustment bolt as indicated for each type of seed.
- Oil outlet may be blocked by small particles and should be cleaned regularly with a blade to allow free oil flow
- The oil is collected from the slit in the press cage and is collected in a container
- Oil is collected in a container under the press cage and emptied in a big container
- Impurities will settle in the big container after a few days--if necessary keep the oil at 30° Celsius (86° F) or slightly warmer to allow easy settling of impurities
- Decant the clear oil--the oil is ready for use
The Press Cake
- The press cake can serve as protein concentrate in feed for chicken, pigs, goats, ducks and cattle
- The press cake can serve as organic fertilizer as it is rich in nitrogen, phosphorus, potash and magnesium
- The press cake can serve as fuel
During Oil Expelling:
- Check oil flow and clean with a blade the oil slit when the oil flow is impeded
- After expelling, remove the cap immediately from the end of the press cage when still hot
- The hot press cake in the cap is still rather soft and easy to remove with a knife or a screw driver
- Watch out! Do not damage the thread inside the cap!
- If the cap is not cleaned immediately when still hot, the press cake inside the cap becomes hard like stone and is difficult to remove
- If you soak the cap in warm water for a few hours, the press cake will soften and can be removed
- If the same type of seed is pressed again and the press cake is cooled down and stone hard: light the small burner and wait for 20-30 minutes--the press cake will turn plastic again and you can continue pressing without removing the press cake
- After expelling the press cage is cleaned by putting some seed into the funnel and turning the crank--do not use the adjustment bolt so the seed will flow freely cleaning the cap
- Grease the washer at the end of the shaft of the expeller screw with a few drops of vegetable oil

Important for a good result: the seed should be well dried (8% humidity)! In case the press cake is squeezed through the oil slit: the seed is not dry enough. Seed Expelling Instructions (rpm=rounds per minute)
Type of Seed Expelling Properties Remarks Almond Well dried, whole almonds with seed coat are expelled. Bridge formation may occur in the funnel. It might be easier to feed the expeller without a funnel. Turn crank at 55-60 rpm.
- use terminal adjustment bolt with openings fully open - after press cake appears, the bolt can be tightened to obtain high extraction efficiency
- clean oil outlet regularly
- turning requires reasonable force
(Orbignya phalerata) The kernels need to be reduced in size by grating, pounding or chipping. Turn crank at 45-50 rpm to allow oil to flow to the oil outlet.
- expel without adjustment bolt
- turning goes lightly
(Fagus sylvatica) Well dried seed with 8% moisture or less should be expelled including the seed coat. Remove first any sand, stone and twigs. Bridge formation may occur in the funnel. Use a small wooden stick to ease flow of seed. Turn at 50-60 rpm.
- expel with adjustment bolt leaving the 2 press cake outlets open; later on tighten bolt until press cake appears as 2 thin strings
- turning requires reasonable force
- first stop outflow of seeds with finger before press cake outlet until stiff roll appears
- start with open terminal adjustment bolt--once press cake comes out of 2 openings bolt can be tightened
- turning requires reasonable force
(coprah) Well dried coprah is reduced in size by cutting, grating or grinding. Feeding the expeller requires some skill due to bridge formation. To avoid oil clogging of the screw turn calmly at 45 rpm to allow oil to flow to the oil slit.
- do not use the adjustment bolt--stop the outflow of press cake lightly with a finger until a dry press cake appears
- turning goes fairly lightly
- expel with adjustment bolt and gradually tighten the bolt until press cake appears in thin strings
- turning goes easily
(Cannabis) The seed runs easily into the press cage. Turn at 45 rpm.
- do not use the adjustment bolt
- turning requires considerable force
(physic nut or Jatropha curcas) The seeds should be removed from the capsules. The whole seed should be expelled. Remove any stones and sand by sifting. Avoid bridge formation in the funnel by using a small wooden stick. Turn at 50 rpm.
- do not use adjustment bolt
- turning of crank requires considerable force
(groundnut, unroasted and deshelled) Well dried groundnuts are expelled with the thin brown seed coat. Prevent bridge formation of the seed in the funnel. Remove any stones and gravel. Clean oil slit regularly. Turn at 45 rpm.
(sim sim) The seed must be dry with only 4-5% moisture content. Turn the crank slowly at 45 rpm to allow oil flow to the oil slit. Clean oil slit regularly.
