Product Detailed Description
Edible oil is an important primary food and requires highest degree of product quality. The final product quality depends on the refining method and the nature of the raw oil. Fenix® offers a wide range of solutions designed to boost value in this respect.
The crude oils are de-gummed and the free fatty acids are then removed by distillation in one stage during deodorizing. (Some oils like cottonseed oil or fish oil are not suitable for physical refining.)
The oil discharged from expeller presses has certain solid content or gum, the level varying on the oil seed, which must be removed. For easier separation, the solids are wetted with hot water and separated along with hydrated phosphatides in the decanter/clarifier. The solids are returned to the press for recovery of adhering oil. The clarified oil is then either refined directly or dried under vacuum for storage or consumption.
