What equipment is needed to turn red palm oil into vegetable oil?
To turn red palm oil into vegetable oil, we need red palm oil refining equipment. Using red palm oil refining equipment, we not only can make the color of red palm oil lighter, but remove harmful impurities and useless substances in red palm oil, so as to improve the storage stability and smell. According to processing capacity and budget, Henan Glory Company can provide 3 types of red palm oil refining equipment.
3 types of red palm oil refining equipment
The first type: Batch red palm oil refining equipment
Batch red palm oil refining equipment is suitable for the processing capacity of less than 20TPD red palm oil. Its advantage is that the operation of the equipment is simple and flexible, the investment is small, and it is suitable for frequent replacement of various vegetable oils. Operated by electric heating and thermal oil heating.
The second type: Semi-continuous red palm oil refining equipment
Semi-continuous red palm oil refining equipment is suitable for the processing capacity of 5-30TPD red palm oil. Its advantages are high efficiency, energy saving and environmental protection, high additional output value and relatively low cost.
The third type: Full continuous red palm oil refining equipment
Full continuous red palm oil refining equipment is suitable for the processing capacity of more than 30TPD red palm oil. All units of continuous refining equipment are continuous production. This refining process has advantage of: less consumption, less oil lost and more steady quality of refining red palm oil.
The above three kinds of red palm oil refining equipment has different processing capacities and cost, but they has same palm oil refining process, including degumming, deacidification, decolorization and deodorization. Let's take a small batch red palm oil refining equipment chemical process as an example to describe the process of red palm oil refining.
Process of red palm oil refining
●Process one: Degumming
Add food-grade phosphoric acid with a concentration of 85% or 75% into red palm oil, and the amount of phosphoric acid added is 0.05%-0.2% of the oil weight.
●Process two: Deacidification
Add a certain concentration and a certain amount of NaOH into red palm oil to carry out acid-base neutralization reaction, so as to achieve the purpose of removing free fatty acids in oil.
●Process three: Decolorization
Add 1-3% of decolorizing agent into red palm oil which accounts for the weight of the oil, carry out physical adsorption, and then use filtering equipment to separate the red palm oil from the decolorizing agent, so as to achieve the purpose of decolorizing.
●Process four: Deodorization
Under a high temperature of 220-260°C and a certain vacuum condition, a certain amount of superheated steam is introduced to strip the red palm oil, and the purpose of deodorization is achieved according to the difference in the volatilization point of the oil and volatile small molecular substances.
If the processing capacity of red palm oil is large, semi-continuous red palm oil refining equipment and full continuous red palm oil refining equipment are recommended for physical refining. These two types of red palm oil refining equipment have low oil loss and low production consumption.
