Palm oil and its sub-items are one of the most commonly traded oil products in globalized markets. People in the tropics often use palm oil. Palm oil is extracted from the pulp of palm fruits and contains 40% monounsaturated fatty acids, rich in vitamin A and vitamin E. Palm oil has a long storage function and is suitable for frying. The extracted crude palm oil (CPO) is purple. Palm oil refined by edible oil refinery machine removes free fatty acids, natural dyes, odors and becomes first-grade cooking oil. Refined palm oil is almost transparent colorless in the liquid state and almost white in the solid-state. Palm oil can also be processed to form liquid palm oil, palm stearin, palm olein, etc. With rich experience in oil refinery, we offer high-quality palm oil refinery machine at competitive price.

How to Refine Crude Palm Oil (CPO)?
The general palm oil refining process of palm oil refinery machine includes 5 procedures: degumming, deacidification, decolorization, deodorization and dewaxing. Palm oil refining machines can perform these functions.
- The degumming process uses physical and chemical methods to remove soluble impurities.
- The deacidization process involves removing free fatty acids, which affect the stability and flavor of palm oil. Alkaline neutralization can be used.
- The decolorization process is the adsorption of chlorophyll, carotenoids and other pigments, these pigments affect the stability and appearance of the oil.
- Deodorization is the removal of volatile substances that affect the smell of oil.
- Dewaxing is obtained by heating and crystallizing the palm oil.
