Dry Fractionation Plant
SPECTEC offers a wide range of batch & continuous Dry Fraction Plants.
Most of the natural oils & fats have only a limited applications in there original forms as a consequence of there specific chemical composition. In order to widen there uses the oils goes through variety of modifications, Fractionation is one of them.
Fractionation is the fully reversible modification process. It is basically a tharmochemical separation process in which a multicomponant mixture is physically separated in to two or more fractions with distinct physical & chemical properties. The can be based on a difference in solidification, solubility, or volatility of different compounds.
SPECTEC”s Dry Fractionation plant is a custom design to allow you to achieve selective crystallization of different triglycerides in edible oil. This is plant you can count on producing stable & filterable crystals giving you a product to fit your standards and quality requirements.
SPECTEC’s system is designed to process crude, pre-treated or RBD palm oil. The process is divided in few steps as below.
- Feed oil heating
- Crystal formation under controlled cooling
- Crystal growth
- Crystal maturation
The latest development in fractionation of palm oil have made it possible to produce super olien with IV of 70 & more these prime or top olien products are obtained by re-fractionation of super olien.
General uses of Olien - cooking, salad, bleaching
General uses of Sterine - frying fats, margarine & shortlenings.
IV is a measurable degree of instauration. during crystallization more saturated & hence higher melting trigecerides concentrate in to solid phase, where as the olein fractions becomes enriched in more unsaturated triglycerides. The change in IV also measurable for separation efficiency as it can be used to quantity the separation.
