of the raw materials with required solvent is carried out in continuous
extractor, attached with a moving belt or batch extractors.
After this, the mixed solution of solvent and extract is collected in the
solution tank, from where, it is sent for distillation for recovery of
For the recovery of solvent, the residue generated from continuous/batch
extractors are fed into dryer for desolventising. In case, the
solvent used in the process is water, then the residue need not required to
be desolventised and can be just disposed off.
