Filtration of Vegetable Oil

Vegetable oil is a product made from oily raw material by extrusion and extraction processes.  A combination of these methods is used slightly less often: the first stage is extrusion, and the second one is extraction.

The extrusion process involves pressing of oily raw material from pre-treated sunflower seeds.  Extraction is based on diffusion and involves recovery of oily material using extraction hexane.

Oil extraction is...

Mayonnaise and its production in AVS

The AVS-100 vortex layer device is used successfully in food production to make mayonnaise and various sauces. Using the AVS reduces the complexity of the technology process and its duration, while improving the product’s dispersion.

The device intensifies the process by eliminating some of the stages and reducing the cost of the product, improving its taste, stability and consistency, as well as biological stability. Using the AVS for production of mayonnaise...

Vegetable oil degumming: equipment choice

Vegetable oil degumming is the removal of phospholipids from the crude product. Those are fat-like substances, highly valuable biologically. Actual content of phospholipids in vegetable oil varies from 0.2 to 4.5% and depends on the specific substance and the method of oil production.

Immediately after oil extraction, phospholipids are solved in the oil, but can lose that solubility in storage and precipitate, clouding the product.

Vegetable oil filtration

Vegetable oil is a made from seed feedstock by pressing or extraction. Combined method, where pressing is used initially, followed by extraction, is somewhat less common.

The process of pressing the oil involves subjecting the prepared seeds to high pressure. Extraction is based on diffusion and involves extraction of oil by extraction solvents (hexane).

Extraction of oil is preceded by cleaning the seeds, peeling and pulverization,...

GlobeCore magnetic strainers to capture metal in food production

One of the possible applications of vortex layer generators is the processing of liquid phase and heterogenic systems. This equipment allows to intensify processes in various industries: food production, chemical, microbiological, petrochemical, etc.

The principle of vortex layer device operation is based on chaotic motion of ferromagnetic elements in a rotating magnetic field. A layer forms inside the device’s active chamber, called the vortex layer. In this...
