Clarifying Decanters for Edible Oil Refining

In oil refining processes clarifying decanters are used for press oil clarification. Compared to conventional hot seed pressing plants with leaf filter the process setup becomes much simpler when using a decanter.

Centrifuge - Classifying Decanter

The decanter separates the solids from the oil in fully continuous operation. Solids are discharged continuously which results in a continuous solids recycling into the press.

Using a decanter combines foots removal with partial degumming, in case of chemical refining the result of this combination of two process steps is often sufficient. On top, GEA decanters are easy to operate and automate and they need only little space. With their robust design our decanters can handle oil temperatures of up to 105° C. The external gears which segregates product from drive room, oil lubrication of all bearings, special materials and high quality wear make our GEA ecoforce decanters especially suited for hot applications and continuous heavy duty.
