Palm kernel oil refinery equipment
Henan Doing Company is a professional manufacturer of palm kernel oil refinery equipment
Refining is a process to remove unwanted and undesirable elements from the crude palm kernel oil. The elements that are removed include the Free Fatty Acids, Phospholipids, Gums,Odour, Color, Waxes etc. Refining makes the vegetable oil clean and pure and improves the overall quality of the oil.
Main process of the Palm kernel oil refinery plant:
1. Crude Palm kernel oil degumming process,
2. Crude Palm kernel oil deacidification/neutralization process
3. Crude Palm kernel oil decoloring/bleaching process
4. Crude Palm kernel oil deodorization/distillation (deodorising unit) process

Palm kernel oil refining process
Introduction of four sections in palm kernel oil refinery equipments :
1.Degumming Section: Some impurity, such as Phospholipid, gum, and protein, can be dissolved into oil when there is no water, but once there is water in oil, these impurity can be dissolved into water. So, in degumming section, we use the hot water to wash crude oil for two-three times to remove these impurity.
2.Neutralizing Section: Crude oil contains much free fatty acid, which is harmful for health. Free fatty acid can have the reaction with caustic soda, during the reaction, it can be saponified and becomes soapstock, then small soapstock pellets will sink and becomes sediment and be pumped out. After neutralizing, most of the free fatty acid will be removed out.
3.Decoloriztion Section: Most of the crude oil has deep color because of the pigments, such as carotene, xanthophyll, etc. We use bleaching earth to remove pigments, because bleaching earth has strong adsorption capacity. Then pump oil into plate filter to remove bleaching earth, then pigment also will be removed out along with bleaching earth, then oil will be clean and transparent.
4.Deodorizing Section: Pure oil has no smell, but different crude oil has their special smell because of some volatile matters, for example the oxide for ketones, aldehydes, hydrocarbons. In deodorizing section, we deliver steam into oil continuously, and make sure steam and oil can fully contacted under high temperature and pressure, then volatile matters can be removed out along with the steam.
