Crude oil contains impurities of phosphatides, waxes, pigments & FFA which are harmful to our health. 1~10T/D oil refining production line is essential to remove impurities, improve oil flavor & quality and extend shelf life and it’s suitable for the small oil refining business owner.
Crude oil contains impurities which need be removed by oil degumming firstly, then by deacidifying, decoloring and deodorizing. Especially for the edible oil industry, hydrated degumming is most commonly used in soybean, peanut, palm kernel and sesame oil refining factory.
As the most critical step in the entire refining process, oil deacidification creates conditions for decolorizing, deodorizing, hydrogenating of oil. Especially, alkali refining is mostly used for removing acid with additional functions of absorbing impurity, degumming and bleaching.
Oil bleaching process can efficiently process turbid crude oil into transparent and bright oil by removing pigment, residual soap, and odorous substances. The deodorization of oil is applied in most refining industry by using bleaching machine, leaf filter, and vacuum system equipment.
Highly valued oil deodorization process is an odor removing method for improving the stability & chroma & quality of oil by steam stripping principle. In medium and large oil factory, continuous deodorization tower is the best choice with features of compact structure, high steam utilization, and easy maintenance.
With the same principle of heating, cooling and filtrating, oil dewaxing/fractionation/winterization is indispensable for improving oil quality like sunflower oil, cottonseed oil, palm oil, coconut oil in edible oil refining factory.
