There are generally two processes to refinery sunflower oil: physical and chemical refinery process. In South Africa, most people choose the chemical refinery process, and through the sunflower oil refinery machine to carry out degumming, deacidification, decolorization, deodorization process. The following will introduce the difference between the physical the chemical refinery process of sunflower oil and why more people in South Africa choose chemical refinery process to refine sunflower seed oil.

1. The difference between physical and chemical refinery processes

The main difference between physical refinery and chemical refinery is the method used in the deacidification process, that is, whether alkaline chemicals are used for deacidification. Chemical refinery process achieves the purpose of deacidification by adding sodium hydroxide to neutralize acid. Physical refinery process removes free fatty acids through high-temperature steam.

The batch sunflower oil refinery machine only uses chemical refinery process, while the fully continuous type uses chemical and physical refinery process.

2. Why do most people choose to refine sunflower oil through the chemical refinery process in South Africa?

2.1 Background and resources:

South Africa is one of the major countries in sunflower production and has abundant sunflower seed resources. Chemical refinery process can efficiently process large quantities of sunflower seeds through more complex processes to achieve higher yields and lower costs. This is important for South Africa's production environment and economic viability.

2.2 Quality requirements:

Chemical refinery process is better able to meet the quality requirements. Sunflower edible oil exported from South Africa often must meet strict quality standards, such as food safety and regulatory requirements of the exporting country. Sunflower oil chemical refinery process can more thoroughly remove impurities, impure substances and harmful ingredients, thereby improving the quality and stability of the oil.
