Palm oil fractionation plant

Palm oil fractionation plant is used to separate palm oil into low melting point liquid phase (palm olein) and high melting point solid phase (palm stearin) by controlling the cooling and crystallization process of palm oil fractionation process. During palm oil production process, palm oil fractionation process is not a must, users can choose according to the actural situation.

Palm oil fractionation plant theory:

Palm oil fractionation means to control cooling crystallization process to separate palm oil to 3 parts: palm stearin, palm olien and palm midfraction. The melting point of stearin is 50℃,and olein 24℃. Stearin is suitable to make margarine and cheese oil, and olein is an excellent frying oil. The melting point of midfraction is narrow and close to body temperature, which can be used as cocoa butter substitute.

Palm oil fractionation methods:

There’re 3 methods to fractionation palm oil: dry fractionation, solvent fractionation and surfactant fractionation. Following is a brief introduction of dry palm oil fractionation plant.

Why dry palm oil fractionation plant is mostly used during palm oil production process?

Dry fractionation is the most economic method to fractionation, which means to cool the melting palm oil to definite degree, filter and separate the crystal. There’re 3parts of fractionation: calefaction, cooling crystallization and filtration. First fractionation is always necessary, but for some industries (candy, etc), second fractionation is also needed.

Dry palm oil fractionation plant has a wide prospect, because of its simple technology, high automaticity, low steam consumption, good quality of product, without centrifugal separation, solvent or effluent.
