Sun Flower Oil Refining Plant

A plethora of health benefits has placed  Sunflower oil on millions of tables as one of the most favored cooking medium in India and across the world.

The low content of saturated fats and high content of Vitamin E makes its non-volatile  nature the choicest  cooking medium  for frying. It enjoys vast popularity in the cosmetic industry for being the base for  manufacturing numerous cosmetic formulations. Scientific research has placed Sunflower oil as a frontline agent for preventing cancer. It also  lowers the cholesterol levels, improves coronary  health, reduces inflammation, and boosts energy. It is a potent weapon in mankind's fight against skin injuries, arthritis, poorly healing wounds, hair growth and much more.

Process of Sunflower Oil Refining

After being extracted from sunflower seeds, crude sunflower oil is obtained post - multi-stage refining process that also helps attain the most favored qualities after removal of unwanted substances.

The following describes the multi-stage sunflower oil refining process:

Neutralization

The crude oil is neutralized as a first process, that primarily involves treatment of crude oil with alkali . Soap separation follows in order to remove soap from oil. Hot water is subsequently employed to wash the soap separated oil to remove the soap traces from oil followed by drying process to evaporate the moisture of oil.

The steps involved are -

  • Conditioning
  • Neutralization
  • Washing
  • Drying

Continuous Bleaching

In Bleaching process trace metals, dirt, color pigments, phospholipids, polycyclic aromatic compounds and numerous other impurities are eliminated from the Neutralized oil.

The multi-step process involves:

  • Primary heating
  • Acid and bleaching clay mixing
  • Secondary heating
  • Bleaching
  • Filtration

Winterization

Waxes and saturated tri glycerides, which are fairly visible at low temperatures are removed at this stage.

Deodorization

Deodorization is a vacuum striping process in which given amount of steam is passed for a given period of time through hot oil @ a low pressure.

This process involves:

  • De-aeration
  • Pre-heating
  • Striping
  • Cooling
