Edible Oil Refining

An Edible Oil Refinery Plants is used for processing oil and then refining it into products that are useful for consumption. While this is the case, it is important to choose one that matches your needs and preferences effectively based on the raw material availability etc. Quality of edible oil depends on the refining method and the nature of the raw oil. We offer a wide range of solutions designed to boost value in this respect. The oil discharged from expeller presses has certain solid content or gum, the level varying on the oil seed, which must be removed.

Cashew fruit consists of Cashew nut clinging on to the Cashew apple. Cashew fruit is unique in the sense that the nut is outside the fruit. The Apple and Nut fall together when both are ripe.

Cashew kernel is probably the most versatile of all the nuts as it is rich in nutrients. Cashew kernel is obtained from raw cashew nut that is about 1.5 inch long and kidney shaped. Its shell is 1/8” thick. Between the walls of the shell is a honeycomb structure that contains the phenolic material known as Cashew Nut Shell Liquid. The Cashew kernel is wrapped in a thin brown skin known as testa, which contains tannin and is used as cattle feed.

Major products generated from cashew fruit are:

  • Cashew Kernels
  • Cashew Nut Shell Liquid (CNSL)
  • Cashew Liquor

The processing of Cashew Nut involves following steps and processes:

  • Raw cashew processing, drying and storage
  • Steam cooking
  • Shelling
  • During and humidification
  • Peeling
  • Grading
  • Conditioning and packaging

Cashew processing is a labor-intensive industry. We provide training of manpower at project site. Utsav Exim can provide vegetable oil refinery plant on turnkey basis. We offer a batch type vegetable oil refinery plant up to 30 tonne per day capacity and we offer continuous type vegetable oil refinery plant up to 500 tonne per day capacity. Our oil refinery plant finds an extensive application for almost all types of oil seeds. These oil mills machines are widely used for processing Neem seeds, Astor, maize germs, Mahua and mustard seeds. Availability of these products is in capacity range from 5-100 tonne per day.

The refining of vegetable oil is necessary process for removing of gums, waxes, phosphatides as well as free fatty acid from oil as well as impart to the oil uniform color through removal of coloring pigments and also getting rid of unpleasant smell from oil through removal of odiferous matter.

The processing plants offered by us are developed to match up with the demands of physical refining of oil through process where the process uses lower boiling point of FFA as compared to boiling point of triglyceride oil. It’s a process after pretreatment where oil is deodorized and physically refined. These physical refining systems ensure Free Fatty Acid (F.F.A.) present in oils is distilled off at high temperatures and high vacuum. Other than this, we also hold expertise in offering Chemical Refining Plants that involve process comprising neutralization of crude oil through removing fatty acids by mixing it with caustic soda. The process involves heating oil to around 60oC and stirring oil by stirrer where the fatty acids are settled at bottom in form of alkali soaps called soap stock and is taken out into soap tank.
