Dry Fractionation Plant
SPECTEC is a provider of high quality batch & continuous Dry Fraction Plants.
Due to the specific chemical composition, the natural oils and fats in their original forms have a limited applications. The oils are therefore modified to widen their applications. Fractionation is one of the modification processes. This is a completely reversible modification process. In this tharmochemical separation process, a multicomponent blend is physically separated into two or more fractions with different chemical as well as physical properties.
The process can be on the basis of difference in solubility, solidification or volatility of different compounds.
Dry Fractionation Plant by SPECTEC can be provided in custom design to enable the users to achieve selective crystallization of several triglycerides in edible oil. This plant can be employed for producing stable and filterable crystals, giving the users a resultant product that fit their standards and quality requirements.
The system by SPECTEC is designed and developed for processing crude, pre-treated or RBD palm oil. The process can be divided into the following steps:
- Feed oil heating
- Crystal formation under controlled cooling
- Crystal growth
- Crystal maturation
