Water or acid de-gumming and washing

  • Removing part of the gums from the crude oil, using water only

Bleaching

  • Removing color components, metal traces and other (pro-)oxidants from the oil, by adsorption on selected natural clay types
  • Bleaching, using acid-activated natural clay types


Deodorizing

  • Removing volatile impurities from the oil, by steam treatment at moderate temperature and deep vacuum

Physical refining

  • Removing free fatty acids and other volatile impurities from the oil, by steam treatment at high temperature and deep vacuum

Winterizing

  • Controlled crystallization of natural waxes by cooling the product to low temperature and then removing the wax crystals by special filtration

Active carbon treatment

  • Removing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and dioxins from the oil, using the specific adsorption capabilities of active carbon

Mixing & blending
