Palm oil is one of the popular cooking oil in the market. But due to temperature changes, palm oil separates solid and liquid parts. We generally call the solid part palm stearin. Except for cooking oil use, the solid part can be raw material for making butter, chocolate and margarine. We call the liquid part palm olein, which is mostly used for edible palm oil. Thus, you can consider processing palm oil into palm olein and stearin.
If your raw material is crude palm oil, then first you need to adopt refinery machine to remove impurities like gum, acid, pigment and bad smell. Then it is called RBD palm oil, which will form into crystal if temperature is low. In order to get palm olein (the liquid part) and palm stearin (the solid part), you can add our palm oil fractionation plant.
Palm oil fractionation plant
Palm oil fractionation plant includes heating, cooling, crystallization, filtration, with different capacities for your choice. By the way, since fractionation has high requirement for temperature control, you can also choose to add PLC system to ensure efficiency and accuracy.
Different machine used in palm oil fractionation plant
Heating can melt the naturally crystallized part of the refined palm oil to ensure that there are no solid crystals in the refined palm oil. Then the refined palm oil is cooled and crystallized, and the solid and liquid are separated. Finally, filter and store palm olein and palm stearin separately.
We have installed palm oil fractionation plants in different countries and regions and received positive feedback from our clients, who told us this plant brings much profit for their business. If you want to further process RBD palm oil into olein and stearin, welcome to contact us .
