A typical process line
Optimizing the edible oil process
Refining crude oil into edible oil requires deep process knowledge—from degumming, neutralization and dewaxing to bleaching, deodorizing and GE and 3-MCPD mitigation.
Maximizing yield and quality for Kenyan fair-trade certified oil
In 2007, Olivado Natural Nutrition expanded their operation and began producing extra virgin, cold-pressed avocado oils. They contacted Alfa Laval, who designed, manufactured and installed a full process line, including an Alfa Laval X-Series decanter, two UVPX separators, six batch malaxers, a washer, a de-stoning and peeling unit, a conveyor, and a control panel.
Relying exclusively on certified fair-trade avocados grown locally by independent farmers in the highlands of central Kenya, this process line has allowed Olivado to achieve an annual yield of over 300,000 litres. With support from Alfa Laval’s service team, the company has ensured long-term reliability from their equipment, resulting in consistent production of the company’s award-winning products.
