Before it is made ready for human consumption, cooking oil undergoes through a number of different processes in a cooking oil refinery plant. Simply defined, refining is the process of removing impurities which may be present in the cooking oil. Such impurities include phosphatides, free fatty acids (FFA), waxes and gums. The refining process is also necessary since it gives the final product a uniform color by getting rid of all the coloring pigments that may have been present. It also helps in the removal of bad smell that may be due to the presence of odiferous matter present.

Cooking Oil Refinery Process

The process of cooking oil refining in a cooking oil refinery plant can be carried out in two different processes. These are the continuous operation process and the batch operation process. Although the two process have more similarities than differences, the one aspect that sets them widely apart is the volume of oil used. Batch process is used when less than 30 tons of cooking oil, with a free fatty acid component of less than 1%, needs to be refined in a span of twenty four hours. Smaller cooking oil refinery plants prefer this method because of its low maintenance, simplicity of operation and its low capital investment. Continuous refining is recommended when the oil capacity to be refined in a twenty-four hour span is more than thirty tons.

  • Degumming process.

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 process.

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 process.

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 process.

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 process.

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 refinery plant takes before bottling and marketing its oil.
