Main process of palm oil refinery plant:
Degumming section of crude palm oil refining:
Degumming is the first and basic step in the crude palm oil refining process, degumming process aims to removing the gum impurities in the crude oil to make it suitable for further refinery process, hydration degumming and special acid degumming are the two main methods.

Deacidification section of crude palm oil refining:
The deacidification system uses versatile neutralization technology, which is developed to deal with oilseeds of different species and qualities in the crude oil refining process, it can realize both degumming and neutralization processes by adding alkali, water and acid, then with FFA, crude phospholipids and moisture all removed, the oil and by products (soap foot, phospholipids) are separated.

Bleaching section of crude palm oil refining:
The oil bleaching is also named decolorization in crude palm oil refining process. This process’s main purpose is to remove the product of oxidation, pigments, phospholipids, soap materials from the oil. In the oil refinery plant, this process can improve the oil color as well as supplies high quality oil for the deodorization process.

Deodorization section of crude palm oil refining:
Deodorization section is very crucial in crude palm oil refining process in first grade oil production as it improves the flavor of the oil; the quality of deodorization equipment has great effect to the oil quality.

After palm oil refining process, we can get RBD palm oil,  if you want to make your products value greatly maximize, you can set up a palm oil fractionation plant. The typical palm oil fractionation process of palm oil mill is controlled cooling, crystallization, and filtering.  After palm oil fractionation process, we can get palm olein and  palm stearine.

Our palm oil fractionation technology and machinery is based on a fully continuous and automatic system without adding any solvent or chemical, ensuring premium quality of oil products. The oil is cooled slowly to a certain degree in dissolved state, passing through plate filter to separate crystals and precipitate solid ester. Our palm oil fractionation plant is your best choice to produce stable palm oil olein and stearine products that fits your standard and quality requirements.

Besides palm oil refinery plant and palm oil fractionation plant , we also supply palm kernel oil refinery plant and palm kernel oil fractionation plant. If you want  to know more information about palm oil machine, please feel free to contact us!
