Why crude palm kernel oil should be refined?
What should we do after get the crude palm kernel oil (PKO)? What is the right way to improve the oil quality and tastes? As we all know, the crude oil is inedible. It can’t be directly used as cooking oil or as the ingredients for food industry. What’s the reasons?
Crude oil refers to oils that didn’t got through the refining process. It has many kinds of foreign matters, like sorlid residue, sand, cake residue; solloid-soluble impurities, like phospholipid, protein; oil-soluble impurities, like free fattyacid, pigment, aflatoxin, gossypol ,moisture. Due to the above impurities, the crude oil is easy to rancidity, which makes it in low quality and has less values in use. Therefore, it is necessary to remove these useless matters based on different using requirements and make it edible. This is the same for palm kernel oil. So, the crude palm kernel oil needs to be refined for cooking or other edible purposes.

Fully automatic continuous palm kernel oil chemical refining line
Capacity: 30 ~ 1000 TPD
Brief introduction:This oil refining line adopts the acid and alkali neutralization principle to remove the free fatty acid and uses disk centrifugal separator to separate the phospholipid and soap stock. The features of chemical oil refining are as follow:
- Has less requirements for the quality of crude palm kernel oil
- Refined palm kernel oil has stable quality
- It uses less bleaching earth compared to physical refining
Other usage: palm oil, soybean oil, cottonseed oil, canola oil, tea seed oil, maize/corn germ oil, rice bran oil sunflower oil, etc..
Capacity: 30~1000 TPD
Fully automatic continuous palm kernel oil physical refining line
Brief introduction: Palm kernel oil physical refining means it removes the free fatty acid by vacuum vapor distillation, instead of neutralization. The features of physical oil refining are as follow:
- High refining rate but low oil losses and less waster water discharge
- More free fatty acid (FFA) are distilled
- Especially suitable for the oils of low gun content and high acid values
- Requires less cost on investment, and less assistant material on the refining process
- High quality and stable equipment and more simple process
Main equipment: degumming pot, heat exchanger, bleaching tower, oil filter, deodorization tower, animal oils, etc..
Other usage: rice bran oil, palm oil, vegetable oils, animal oils and more.
