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

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. Compared to filter systems they even save a lot of energy because they do not need pressurized air for cleaning. So if you are looking for a more cost-saving and sustainable solution, decanters are your first choice.

With their robust design our decanters can handle oil temperatures of up to 105° C. External gears separate product from drive room, oil lubrication of all bearings, special materials and high quality, wear-resistant material make our GEA ecoforce decanters especially suited for hot applications and continuous heavy duty.
