vegetable oil refining machine

The vegetable oil cleaning machine is designed to clean crude vegetable oil, get rid of harmful impurities and produce high-quality edible oil. Depending on the productivity, the vegetable oil refining machine can be divided into three types: batch, semi-continuous and fully continuous vegetable oil refining machine.

The method of purification of vegetable oil and types of machines for cleaning vegetable oil:

Different crude vegetable oil needs a different process for refining vegetable oil. Such a process as peanuts, soybeans, sesame seeds, castor oil, rapeseed, etc., includes four stages: degumming, deoxidation, bleaching and deodorization. For maize embryos, rice bran, sunflower seeds, palm oil, the refining process consists of five steps: degumming, deoxidation, bleaching, deodorization and dewaxing or fractionation for palm oil.

Vegetable Oil Processing Parameters:

Steam consumption 700KG/T oil
Electric consumption 28Kwh/T oil
Water (soften water) 150Kg/T oil
Phosphoric acid 2~3 kg/T oil
Alkali acid valuex1-3kg/T oil
Circulating water cooling water yield 150M3/
Bleaching earth consumption 3-5Kg/T oil
Waste bleaching earth oil content ≤25~35%
Refining losses acid valuex1.2 (chemical refining)
acid valuex 0.6 (physics refining)
Bleaching losses the quantity of bleaching earth×0.25%
Deodorization loss consumption ≤0.5%≤0.5%
Refining rate 1-refining consumption

1. Batch Vegetable Oil Refining Machine:

Typically, the capacity for this type is less than 20 dpi. Since this type of cleaning process, one tank is cleaned for one tank, which takes a lot of time and requires workers to work.

2. Semi-Continuous Vegetable Oil Cleaning Machine:

Typically, the capacity for this type is 20-50 t / d. The processing process of this type is initially periodic, and the last part is continuous.

3. Fully Continuous Vegetable Oil Processing Machine:

Typically, the capacity for this type exceeds 30 dpi. The processing process of this type is completely continuous.

Detailed view of the process of cleaning vegetable oil:

1. Dehumming and deoxidation

The degumming process uses phosphoric acid and water to react with crude oil, and then separates the phosphatide from the oil.

After a sufficient amount of phosphoric acid treatment, add alkali to the oil to neutralize the free fatty acid, and then rinse the oil several times before separating the gum. This process is called deoxidation.

Here, a byproduct is soap stock that can be used to make soap.

The main equipment for processing vegetable oil: alkaline tank, tanks for oil refining

2. Bleaching

The bleaching process uses white clay to whiten the oil. At this point, white clay absorbs dark dye in oil. The amount of white clay depends on the color depth of the crude oil. After bleaching, the used clay is filtered on a sheet filtering machine.

The main equipment for the processing of vegetable oil: decolorizing tank / column, leaf filter, pumps

3. Deodorization

This step is to remove some unnecessary odors from the crude oil. Typically, a chemical deodorization plate uses a deodorization plate using high temperature steam to remove odors.

The main equipment for processing vegetable oil: deodorizing tank, pumps

After the above steps, the final product is refined vegetable oil. But some vegetable oils need additional processing, such as dewaxing for sunflower oil, fractionation for palm oil, etc.
