A deodoriser is an equipment for deodorising, the final stage in vegetable oil refining. Deodorising removes odoriferous material, free fatty acids and other undesired minor components to produce a bland oil with a good shelf life.


Over the latest years, the aim of a state-of-the-art deodorising became:


  • odor, flavor removal
  • free fatty acid removal
  • color reduction (heat bleaching)
  • peroxides destruction


Organoleptic and Nutritional Value[edit]

Final customers require a perfect oil with high organoleptic and nutritional values, even one year after production.

Deodorising stages[edit]

The different stages in deodorising are :

  • Deaeration
  • Heating
  • Deodorising / steam stripping
  • Heat recovery / cooling
  • Final cooling
  • Polishing filtration

Top quality products require optimal conditions at all stages.
