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 tree fruit 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 raw palm oil is crimson. Refined palm oil by edible oil refinery machine removes free fatty acids, natural colors, odors and becomes a grade 1 cooking oil. With rich experience in the oil refinery, we offer high-quality palm oil refinery machines. Refined palm oil is close to colorless transparent in liquid condition and near white in solid-state. Palm oil can also be further processed to form palm liquid oil, palm stearin, palm olein, and so on.

- The degumming process uses physical and chemical methods to remove soluble impurities.
- The deacidization process is to remove 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 oil.
- Deodorization is the removal of volatile substances that affect the odor of oil.
- Dewaxing is achieved by heating and crystallization of palm oil.
