Main Stages of Palm Kernel Oil Refinery Process
Degumming – this is the first step in oil refinery. Here, hot water is used to extract impurities such as gum, protein, and phospholipid. This process is carried out two to three times to ensure that the oil is free from impurities before proceeding to the next stage.
Neutralization –We all know that crude oil contains a lot of free fatty acid. Consuming these harmful fatty acids would be harmful for our health. That is why they need to be removed. During their removal, caustic soda reacts with fatty acids to form soap stock. These soap stock exist as pellets and they sediment at the bottom. Here, they are pumped out and the crude oil is free from harmful products.
Decolorization –Oil gets its golden look at this stage. Crude oil gets its characteristic black color from ink pigments that include carotene and xanthophyll. Bleaching earth is used to remove these colored pigments. It’s used due to its high adsorption tendency. Once bleaching is complete, a mixture of bleaching earth and the colored pigments are pumped out. At this stage, we can see that the oil is now clean and has a golden transparent shade.
Deodorization –Finally, the oil is passed through the deodorizing section before being released to the market. Pure oil is odorless. However, crude oil has a unique smell that originates from oxides of ketones, hydrocarbons, and even aldehydes. At this part, steam is passed through the oil at a high temperature and pressure. The steam takes away all the bad odors with it leaving behind pure oil that is free of any odors. Then, the oil is ready for the market. All this is done by the palm kernel oil refinery plant.
