Palm oil fractionation plant

Palm oil contains each half of saturated fatty acid and unsaturated, which gives palm oil better stability. Thus, palm oil could be used as frying oil. The reasonable utilization of palm oil is to fraction it to different kinds of product.

Palm oil fractionation process

Palm oil fractionation plant, theory:
Palm oil fractionation means to control cooling crystallization process to separate palm oil to 3 parts: palm stearin, palm olien and palm midfraction. The melting point of stearin is 50℃,and olein 24℃. Stearin is suitable to make margarine and cheese oil, and olein is an excellent frying oil. The melting point of midfraction is narrow and close to body temperature, which can be used as cocoa butter substitute.
There’re 3 methods to fraction palm oil: dry fraction, solvent fraction and surfactant fraction. Following is a brief introduction by Henan Doing Mechanical Equipment Co., Ltd.
Dry fractionation is the most economic method to fraction, which means to cool the melting palm oil to definite degree, filter and separate the crystal. There’re 3parts of fractionation: calefaction, cooling crystallization and filtration. First fractionation is always necessary, but for some industries (candy, etc), second fractionation is also needed.
Dry fractionation has a wide prospect, because of its simple technology, high automaticity, low steam consumption, good quality of product, without centrifugal separation, solvent or effluent.
