In this process, free fatty acid is removed from the crude oil by distilling under vacuum. No alkali is introduced in distillation crude palm oil refining process. Distillation is also known as physical refining. It is a new technology in edible oil refinery industry, which ranks with centrifuge continuous refining, miscella alkali refining and Zenith method as today’s four advanced cooking oil refining technology. With the development of oil refining machines and technology, physical refining has widely applied to refinery plant of low-content phosphatides vegetable oil such as palm oil refining, coconut oil refining and babassu oil refining.

Both refining process and refining machine affect the efficiency, yield and cost of refining plant. Besides, the quality of crude palm oil produced as palm oil mill also effects the refining process.
