Oilseed processors are faced with the continued challenge of improving output whilst reducing costs. Our Purifine® 3G and Purifine PLC enzymes can make a big difference to oil processors, hiking oil yields and increasing the value of meals, leading to a boost in profit margins. These enzymes work as catalysts to break phospholipids into water-soluble and oil-soluble fragments, forming oil as well as breaking the emulsion formation, making the separation between gum and oil phase more efficient.
Purifine® PLA1 is a new enzyme solution for refining vegetable oils that delivers consistent performance on yield increase and reaching phosphorus specification. Purifine® PLA1 significantly enables plant managers of oil refineries to improve cost-in-use, lower energy consumption and decrease carbon footprint. It is a hassle free, safe solution since it involves less chemical addition in the refining process. Using Purifine® PLA1 prevents soap formation and thanks to the liquid lyso-gums, prevents centrifuge fouling.
Purifine 3G (Purifine PLC) enzymes uncouple the oil-soluble and water-soluble parts of phospholipids, increasing oil yield and reducing oil loss. Purifine 3G reduces the gum volume and reduces their ability to form an emulsion. Less emulsion formation means less oil yield loss due to entrained oil, while a lower gum content means cleaner separation of the oil from the heavy phase, and lower fat, higher protein content in the meal.
