1.The finished edible oil is consistent and stable.
2.Excellent adaptability and less requirement to oil quality.
3.Less bleaching earth is added into compared with physical refining.
Vegetable oil refining - Physical Refining
1.High oil refining rate, less oil loss.
2.No waste water discharged.
3.Especially suitable for oils of high acid value, and low gum content.
4.More FFA distilled out.
