An acid oil plant is a part and parcel of a vegetable oil refinery and ensures a continuous and fully automatic operation. Made and supplied by the reputed acid oil plant manufacturers in India, the plant comes with great resistance against corrosion due to the highly concentrated nature of chemicals. Such oil plants are designed and developed with extremely flexible operational capabilities as well as amazing acid reserve capacities making the functions easy to operate and control.
The first phase
Cleanser stock is taken care of into an acid oil response vessel, in which it is warmed at 90-95 degree Celsius temperature making use of steam. After this temperature is gotten, sulfuric acid is gradually added to the cleanser stock. As per the amount of TFA in the cleanser stock, its quantum to be added is ascertained, which ranges from 12 to 15%. Almost all the acid oil plant manufacturers in India offer the same range.
The second phase
To finish the reaction, the combination of sulfuric acid and cleanser stock is kept in the vessel for around 15 minutes. The blend is then warmed and kept at a bubbling temperature for 2 to 3 hours. The oil is warmed until the acid oil breaks up. The blend is then kept in the vessel for around hours to settle down.
After the solutions get settled well, 3 layers are framed in which-
● The upper layer is of acid oil
● The Center layer is of acidic muck, and
● The base layer is acidic water.
The final or third phase
Initially, the base layer that is of acidic water gets released through the source valve into the acid oil/water trap tank. At that point, it is additionally siphoned to acidic water stockpiling tanks. After this, the second layer of acidic muck is siphoned into an ooze stockpiling tank through a screw siphon. And finally, the last layer, for example, acid oil, is siphoned into an acid oil stockpiling tank.
