Why sunflower oil need to be refined?
Crude sunflower oil obtained from sunflower oil expeller machine or sunflower oil solvent extraction plant contains some impurities such as mucilage, gums, also Free Fatty Acids (F.F.A.) which must be removed to make the oil edible and suitable for storage. Small scale sunflower oil refining machine is specially designed to remove unhealthy impurities in crude sunflower oil, the whole sunflower oil refining process consisits of sunflower oil degumming process, deacidification process, decolorization process and deodorization process.

crude sunflower oil → degumming → deacidification → decolorization → deodorization →refined sunflower oil → dewaxing process → edible sunflower oil

Detail introduction of small scale sunflower oil refining machine:
First Stage of sunflower oil refining process is to Remove gum by adding hot water (there is a little P-acid in water) .
Second stage of sunflower oil refining process is deacidification process also named neutralizing process. Using alkali like (NaOH) to neutralize FFA in oil, during this process it will produce soapstock , then separating it from the oil.
Third stage of sunflower oil refining process is decolorization process. Because there is pigment in crude oil, the oil color is dark. In order to lighten oil color, we need to using the white clay to absorb the pigment away, then using vibrating filter to separate the waste clay. If you want to get light color oil, you need to add more white clay. the oil color can be controlled by clay amount.
The finally stage of sunflower oil refining process is deodorization process. General speaking , the crude oil smells not good, it will affect of oil storage and price. So we usually use the direct steam to take odors. At the meanwhile, there is about 0.5% water content in refined oil, because the high temperature in the deodorization pot, dehydration is also finished. After that, the final oil will be refined once again through safety filter.
Sunflower oil dewaxing process:
Due to the special nature of sunflower oil, after sunflower oil refining process, we also need a dewaxing process to remove the wax from the cooking oil. conventional methods that rely on frozen crystals dewaxing, then separated by mechanical means oil, wax, without adding any auxiliary agents and auxiliary means dewaxing processes.
