Coconut Oil Filtering
Oil extracted through expeller will has about 8% sediments/foots. They are separated from oil through a 3 stage filtering process i.e. Coarse, Main and Fine filtering.
- Vibrating Screen – Heavy sediments are separated by simple vibration of a mesh aided by a vibrating motor. This is the simplest and cheapest method of filtration. This relieves the further filtering stages of a lot of sediments and hence improves efficiencies there.
- Pressure Leaf Filter – Pressure leaf filter is a vessel that uses vertically mounted Stainless steel mesh for filtering under pressure. Oil is pumped into the vessel at a pressure and this pressure causes the oil to pass through fine pored mesh for filtering. Oil cake is later separated out using compressed air and vibrating. This process does bulk of the filtering. Alternatively Filter Press is also used. Hot oil is used for fast filtering.
- Filter Press – Filter press consists of plates and filter cloths. Oil is passed a pressure using a screw pump. Oil passes through the finely pored filter cloths. Sediments and moisture remains in the filter cloth in between the plates. Oil cake and sediments are separated by removing the plates. Cold oil is used for fine filtering.
