Palm oil processing

Processing palm oil for commercial use almost always involves physical refining (acid modification, bleaching and deacidification). Approx. 95% of palm oil is treated by fractionation – separating the feedstock into its liquid and solid components by crystallization. These crystals are then separated from the liquid fraction using membrane filtration. Alfa Laval provides a range of different equipment often used in crude palm oil (CPO) mills for removing the solids from oils.
