Refinement of seed oil and press oil
The oil seed is processed with the screw press. The resulting press oil has a significant proportion of solids. It is essential to use the decanter for optimum press oil refinement.
Only by refining the press oil using the decanter is it possible to obtain a high yield of high-quality, pure oil. Seed oil can also be refined in this way. Often, hot water is added as a means of optimising the refining of seed oil and press oil. This causes the solids to swell up, and the oil can be separated highly effectively.
Refining press oil and seed oil using a decanter delivers numerous advantages:
- High throughflows, even with a high solid load
- High yield of seed oil and press oil
- Clear, pure and high-quality oil
- Suitable for all seed oils
- No filter aids required
- Flexible because of high-quality, energy-saving and self-regulating drive
- All parts that come into contact with the product are made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel
