In terms of quality, color and smell, refined palm oil performs better than crude palm oil. In order to get more profits, many novices want to start with small scale palm oil refinery plant to refine crude palm oil, but they don’t know much about what common equipment they should purchase. Therefore, I would introduce the common equipment for small scale palm oil refinery plant and hope it is helpful to you.

The common equipment for small scale palm oil refinery plant is batch type palm oil refinery equipment. There are mainly two kinds of batch type palm oil refinery equipment, one of them is equipped with electric heating system, and the other is equipped with thermal oil heating system. And they have different equipment lists.

The batch type electric heating palm oil refinery equipment involves the main following equipment: refinery tank, decolorization tank, deodorization tank, steam generator, box filter and other equipment. While the batch type thermal oil palm oil refinery equipment mainly involves refinery tank, decolorization dank, deodorization tank, steam generator, thermal oil furnace and other equipment.

But the processing technology of these two kinds of batch type palm oil refinery equipment is the same. It mainly includes five steps: degumming, deacidification, decolorization, filtration and deodorization.

1.Degumming: Add food grade phosphoric acid to the refinery tank to transform the non hydrated phospholipid into hydrated phospholipid, and add water to make the gum enter the aqueous phase to precipitate and remove.

2.Deacidification: Degummed oil is added with food grade alkaline for acid-base neutralization reaction and removed by heating and natural sedimentation.

3.Decolorization: When the oil is heated to a certain temperature, a certain amount of activated clay and activated carbon are added in the neutralized oil, the pigment in the oil will be physically adsorbed.

4.Filtration: The solid-liquid mixture of decolorized oil and clay is introduced into the blade filter, and the white clay and oil are separated by the filter plate.

5.Deodorization: Evaporate unpleasant odors and moisture in a high-temperature vacuum environment to obtain refined oil of good quality.
