Process Steps For Filtering Oil Include

In the food industry, edible oil filtration is one of the key steps in ensuring the final quality of food products. Depending on the type of oil and end use, the process steps for filtering oil include:

1. Oil Foot Removal Filtration

The presence of oil feet in cooking oil can significantly impact the taste and quality of food. This step ensures not only a purer appearance of the cooking oil but also a more delicate taste.

2. Lecithin Blend Filtration

Effectively separating lecithin from gum through filtration helps eliminate impurities in the oil. This enhances the purity of edible oil and ensures that the final product meets specific application requirements.

3. Deodorized Oil Filtration

The removal of impurities resulting from the deodorization process ensures the freshness and purity of the final cooking oil. This step is crucial for achieving high-quality standards, enhancing the flavor of the cooking oil, and ensuring safer cooking.

4. Safety Filtration

Improving the quality of filtrate also protects subsequent equipment from unnecessary damage. This step is essential to ensure industrial safety and product reliability, improving the robustness of edible oil production and minimizing production stoppages due to equipment damage.

5. Polishing Filtration

The final polishing and filtration further enhance the quality of the oil. By polishing and filtering, the oil achieves a clearer appearance and a smoother texture.

Sanitek’s comprehensive filtration process encompasses various essential steps for enhancing the quality of edible oils. Beginning with the removal of oil feet to ensure a pure and refined taste, followed by lecithin blend filtration to effectively separate impurities, and deodorized oil filtration to guarantee freshness and safety, each step contributes to meeting stringent quality standards.

The incorporation of safety filtration not only improves filtrate quality but also safeguards equipment, ensuring robust production and minimizing stoppages. The final touch of polishing filtration, driven by Sanitek’s advanced technology, elevates the oil’s quality, providing consumers with a superior dining experience through a clearer appearance and smoother texture across diverse cuisines.
