Cotton Seed Oil Refining
Although cotton seed oil is also the main cooking oils, the crude cotton seed oil contains cotton phenol (about 1%), colloidal and waxy substances (the amount is based on the content of oil in cotton seed). Therefore, the quality of crude cotton seed oil is poor and is not suitable for eating or cooking directly. Oil refining process in cotton seed oil processing plant is used to refine crude cotton seed oil for high quality oil. The complicated process involved in cotton seed oil refining mainly includes: filtration of crude oil, degumming, deacidifying, decolorizing, deodorizing. We have rich experiences in cotton seed oil refining, we have established many refinery projects for cotton seed oil, ranging from 1TPD ~ 30TPD, especially in Afghanistan.
