Edible Oil Filtration

Some small oil extractors filter oil using coffee filters, which results in a lengthy procedure with poor yield. Correct #filtration process decreases yield loss, cuts processing time in half, and enhances purification quality.

Excellence in filtration or separation is just as important for the F&B (food and beverage) and pharmaceutical industries as it is for the oil extracts industry, from high quality water coming to the plant to producing a clear and pure oil extract. It is crucial that oil producers use scalable, high-quality filtration technology before the demand for their goods becomes challenging to meet.

The most popular solvents are ethanol and carbon dioxide but in some cases, other solvents like butane, heptane, and pentane would be used based on cost and availability.

It is also possible to do extraction without solvents, however this procedure is typically less effective and yields are lower.
