Batch Refining Plant

In Vegetable Oil Refinery, physical & chemical processes are combined to remove undesirable natural as well as environmental- related components from the crude oil.These components comprise for example phosphatides, free fatty acids, pigments ( such as chlorophyll ), odors & flavors (including aliphatic aldehyde & ketone), waxes as well as heavy metals, pesticides etc.

Vegetable oil refinery is essential to ensure removal of gums, waxes, phosphatides and free fatty acid (F.F.A.) from the oil; to impart uniform colour by removal of colouring pigments and to get rid of unpleasant smell from the oil by removal of odiferous matter.

We at Gobind oil expeller deals in manufacturing of wide range of Refineries of various Vegetable oils such as Sunflower oil , Cotton seed oil, Groundnut oil, Castor oil, Sesame oil, Canola oil, Palmkernel oil, Mustard oil, Coconut oil and many more.

Depending on the requirements, the following basic processes are implemented: Neutralizing/ Degumming, Bleaching, Physical Refining/ Deodorization, Dewaxing/ Winterization. Refined vegetable oils are either directly used for human nutrition or serve as feed stock for further processing for example, for mayonnaise, margarine, shortening & for production of biodiesel. Important process steps in this context are fractionation, hardening & interesterification.

Neutralizing/ Degumming

The refining of FATS and OILS is comprised of Water Degumming, Gum Conditioning, Alkali refining and Water wash. There are few choices to choose; short/long mixed process with Degumming or Gum Conditioning.

FATS and OILS having gums and FFA (Free Fatty Acid) are required to be removed by Degumming & Refining process to produce quality refined oil.


The OIL received from previous stages contains traces of soap, iron and few ppm of PHOSPHOLIPIDS and CAROTENES, these contents are undesirable and required to be removed in Bleaching Operation, GOBIND's bleaching machines includes STEAM AGITATED bleacher comprises of an acid treatment, a separate OIL and EARTH mixing DEVICE with MECHANICAL MIXER (this arrangement ensures no carryover of bleaching earth into vacuum system), main bleaching vessel and Hermetic filters. Our bleaching plants require less maintenance and provide effective bleaching operations.

Physical Refining/ Deodorization

GOBIND has designed a perfect Physical refining plant & physical deodorizing plant for different Oil and very high capacities & in operation since last many years.

Strategically Designed, combination of tower and fatty acid scrubber, ensures practically no carryover of fatty acids into vacuum system.

Physical Refining process in physical refining plant is used to remove Free Fatty Acid, using Steam Distillation method at moderate temperature and under high vacuum. It is followed by Deodorization and an extra Technical facility is added before deodorization for removal of free fatty acid.

Deodorization process in physical deodorization plant is used to remove unacceptable odour by Steam Distillation, the Odoriferous Compound are stripped off with the help of live injected steam into heated oil under high vacuum.

Dewaxing/ Winterization

A very simple requirement of this process is to produce clear, brilliant refined oil to meet certain specifications of Cloud Point.

Gobind offers a Perfect and Highly Effective Crystallization and Filtration process. It is composed of Homogenizer, Crystallizer and Self Cleaning Filter Equipment with Sequential Cooling system.

GOBIND has developed a perfect dynamic coil Designed Crystallizer for Guaranteed 100% Uniform Cooling specially for Rice Bran Oil, Sunflower Oil & Palm Oil and is already in operation with our valued client for highest quality of product. We also supply low budget crystallizer.

Self Cleaning Filter Equipment is also a Latest Design, having the facility of Maintaining Filtration Temperature and is not affected by Ambient Temperature.

Note: Product color/ finishing might be different, buyer should clarify & confirm before ordering.
