Dry fractionation plant of palm kernel oil

Dry Fractionation Plant of Palm Kernel Oil Process Description:
Dry Fractionation is a process to separate vegetable oils such as palm kernel oil into two fractions, Olein and Stearin, by the crystallization properties of the oils. A typical dry fractionation plant consists of Crystallization Section and Filtration Section.

Preheated RBD palm kernel oil is fed into the crystallizers and then cooled in a controlled environment to form crystals. The cooling sequence follows a defined program using PLC or programmable controllers. The slurry of crystals and oil is then pumped to the fractionation filter for separation of the solid crystals from the oil.

Filtration Section:

In the filtration section, an automated membrane filter press is usually used for filtration of oil slurry to separate the stearin crystals from the liquid olein. Stearin is retained as filter cake while olein passes through the filter as filtrate. Olein yield is maximized by squeezing the stearin cake through inflation of the membrane with air or liquid.

Features of Dry fractionation plant:
At the heart of the dry fractionation process is the industry-standard crystallizers. The crystallizer is designed to provide optimal heat transfer efficiency and thermal homogeneity within the oil while maintaining minimal disturbance to crystal growth.
These crystallizers, together with Henan Doing Company's experience and extensive database of cooling programs, can be tailored to produce different highly filterable crystals to suit various customer-specific fractionation requirements. Combined with vast in-depth knowledge of filter press performance, Henan Doing Company is able to provide specific fractionation solution meeting customers’ requests.
