    BOCM Pauls - Selby - June 2011

    Visited with DrHowser

    We visited this after another site, we only touched on the stuff on the right side of the rails. There looks to be a lot more over the other side but it's all inter-twined with the live site, but it looks good indeed.

    This place smelled a little funny in parts, but I enjoyed it, especially the belt driven sections...

    BOCM stands for 'British Oil and Cake Mills' and dates back to the early years of the 20th century, when it was known as the 'Olympia Mills' at this location.

    The extraction of vegetable oils from seed and grain to make animal feeds has been a prime manufacturing process at this site and is carried out by Unitrition International, a subsidiary company of BOCM Pauls. The main process used is solvent extraction using hexane which is then recovered by distillation. The distillation condensers are cooled by groundwater pumped from the Sherwood Sandstone aquifer at a depth of about 60 metres. In the past, over-abstraction of groundwater has caused compaction of the overlying Drift sediments with subsequent ground subsidence and deformation.
