How Crude Palm Kernel Oil is Refined?

Crude palm kernel oil should be refined for wide application in other industries. The basic refining process for crude palm kernel oil includes degumming, deacidification, decoloring, deodoration and fractionation. So, what’s the function of each process? What details should be paid more attentions? And, what’s the specific equipment it will used? See Also: Palm Kernel Oil Refinery Plant

Process of Palm Kernel Oil Refining

The main content of palm kernel oil is glyceride. But just like other oils and fats, it also contains part of nonglyceride components. And the nonglyceride can be divided into two main parts: non oil-soluble impurities and oil-soluble impurities. The non oil-soluble impurities mainly refer to fiber, shell and free moisture. And, the oil-soluble impurities are free fatty acid, phospholipid, microelement, carotinoid, oxide, tocopherol and more. The refining process is to remove these impurities and maintain more beneficial components, further turn the crude palm kernel oil into qualified edible oil. The refining process we provide is as below.

Physical refining

Crude PKO, degumming, decoloring, filtration, pretreatment oil storage tank, distillation, luster processing, cooling, storage

Chemical refining

Crude pko, degumming, neutralization, washing, drying, filtration, pretreatment oil storage tank, deodorization, fractionation, cooling and storage.

  • Hello, I am interested in buying Mini Palm Kernel Oil Pressing Line and Mini Palm Kernel Oil Refining Line, Can you kindly give me all necessary information, including cost.
  • Thanks for your inquiry. Please let me know what is the capacity do you need of the small oil pressing line? How many raw materials do you want to process in one hour? How about local 3phases electricity?--V?--Hz? So, we can design and quote you accordingly.
  • I wish to request a quotation for 20 M/T capacity per day. A refinery that would refine palm kernel oil into vegetable/edible oil. We are already into palm kernel crushing and we do have expellers / filter press machines. we want to add value to what we produce (palm kernel oil) by further refining the oil into vegetable/edible oil.
  • The standard 20TPD oil refinery plant quotation has send to your email for your reference. Pls check it.
