In a batch oil refinery process, a measured quantity of oil undergoes a sequence of reactions or operations to make the crude oil edible by removing unwanted minor components that make oils unappealing to consumers, while trying to cause the least possible damage to the neutral oil as well as minimum refining loss.
The main stages in the refining process are-
It is the process if batch refining capacity below 30 TDP. This is essentially done in 3 batches per 24 hours. Batch process is recommended being low cost and easy to operate.
Crude oil obtained from expellers or solvent extraction plant consists of various impurities which are removed in each process one by one accordingly.
The main groups of compounds which are removed in process are-
Degumming - Phospholipids
Neutralization – Free fatty acids
Bleaching – Pigments/Metals
Deodorization – Volatiles/Free fatty acids
Crystallization – Waxes/Triacylglycerols
