Edible Oil Centrifuge Separators

Vertical centrifuges are used in many stages of the refining process of edible oils that include soybeans, olives, coconuts, corn, peanuts, sunflower seeds, cotton seeds, sesame seeds, flax seeds and safflower seeds.

Our separators are used in water refining, usually called degumming, consisting of treating the natural oil with a small amount of water, followed by centrifugal separation. Chemical refining follows the water degumming process, in which, acid and caustic are used to neutralize the free fatty acids (soap stock) which then can be reliably removed through our centrifuge. Vertical centrifuges improve product quality, by removing gums and soap stock during production, which contribute to our customer’s profitability.
