Oil Refning is the process of removing unwanted moisture, impurities, free fatty acid, gums, waxes, color & odors.
The oil can be processed by two different methods:
- Batch Refinery
- Continuous Refinery
In batch refining process a measured batch of crude oil is processed in sequence of nutralizing, bleaching, dewaxing & deodorizing.
Crude oil obtained from expellers, solvent extraction plant contains foreign impurities such as gums, mucilage and unfiltered proteinous matter from the seed. It also contains gums which make it unfit for edible purpose.
Batch refining consists of following sections.
The first stage of refining is to separate these gums & foreign impurities with chemicals and hot water treatment called degumming process. Thereafter, the degummed oil is further processed in bleaching section under vacuum and treated with bleaching earth and carbon for reduction of colour pigments. Next, it deodorized under high vacuum. The edible oil obtained from batch refinery is of good quality meeting all requirements of international standards.
