The soap stock is then removed by a centrifugal separator and oil is washed with water for the complete removal of soap stock. The wash water is separated out by
Features of Physical Refining High refinement rate; less oil loss No waste water discharged More FFA distilled Especially suited for highly acidic oils, and those of low gum content Features of Chemical Refining Excellent adaptability and fewer requirements for high oil quality The finished oil is consistent and stable Less bleaching earth necessary compared with
