Offer Customized Cooking Oil Refining Plant

After oil is extracted from vegetable seeds, the crude oil should go through a number of different processes in cooking oil refinery plant to make it ready for human consumption. Simply defined, refining is the process of removing impurities which may be present in the crude oil. Such impurities include phosphatides, free fatty acids (FFA), waxes and gums. Besides, edible oil refinery machine also helps remove bad smell and dark color.

Complete Cooking Oil Refinery Process

The process of oil refining in cooking oil refinery plant can be carried out in two different types: continuous refining process and the batch refining process. This mini oil refinery machine belongs to batch refinery. Although the two process have more similarities than differences, the one aspect that sets them widely apart is the production output.

cooking oil refining process

Cooking Oil Refining Process (Batch Type)

  • Batch refining process is adopted in small to medium scale cooking oil production (1-30 ton/day), with a free fatty acid component of less than 1%.
  • Continuous refining process is recommended when the oil production output is 30-50 ton/day.

Small cooking oil refinery generally adopts batch type because of its low maintenance, simplicity of operation and its low capital investment. 

  • Degumming

It is also referred to as pretreatment. Here, the oils are subjected to acidic treatment. Gums are precipitated out and separated by the centrifugal separation process. When gum content is low, gum conditioning is applied instead. (Related Projects: 5TPD fish oil refinery plant built in Pakistan)

  • Neutralizing

The degummed oil from process one is subjected to alkali refining. The free fatty acids present in the oils react with the caustic soda leading to the formation of a soap stock. Through the use of a centrifugal separator, the soap stock is removed by centrifugal separators which use water to wash off the soap.

  • Bleaching

This is where any coloring pigment present in the oils is removed. Here, the neutralized oil from process two is treated with activated carbonlearth. Vertical pressure leaf filters are then used for the removal of the bleaching agent when all the oil has been passed through.

  • Deodorizing

As suggested by the process name, this is where odor removal takes place. Every cooking oil has its unique natural smell. During the bleaching and the neutralization processes, unpleasant smells are imparted on the oil. It is therefore necessary to get rid of them. This is where any odiferous material present is removed. This operation is carried out at temperatures which are extremely high. By maintaining a high vacuum and injecting an open stream, the odiferous matter is removed. Through the use of a vacuum system, it is then carried off to the barometric condensers.

  • Dewaxing

Oils such as corn oil and sunflower oil have waxes in them. When oil with waxes is kept in relatively low temperatures, it gets a hazy appearances which is generally disliked by customers. The removal of waxes is the final step that a cooking oil refining plant takes before bottling and marketing its oil.
