  • Sieve Tray Oil Stripper by Desmet Ballestra

    Science behind Technology

    We have had our Desmet Ballestra Sieve Tray Oil Stripper operating for three years. This new technology has consistently achieved very low residual hexane in the oil and has been trouble-free to operate. It was a solid investment for our company.

    Rodney Fenske, Operations ManagerSouth Dakota Soybean Processors, USA.

    New break through in oil stripping tray technology dramatically increases oil/steam contact!

    Proven 5 years of development with the fi rst unit and now over 30 units sold!

    Only 95-99 C (203-210 F) miscella temperature required from second stage evaporator!

    Only 4% stripping steam required! Industry leading 5-10 ppm residual hexane in

    oil on most units operating!

    Designing surfactant-only formulati ons for a high-salinity and ti ght reservoirInjecti ng mature oil wells with surfactants and other chemicals is one way to en-hance oil recovery, but high-saline environments and ti ght reservoirs pose addi-ti onal challenges. Read about some of the specialized formulati ons that are being developed for such situati ons.

    Could panda gut microbes power the next-generati on biorefi nery?Researchers investi gate whether integrati ng panda gut microbes into a biofuels plat-form could help reduce costs associated with producing second-generati on biofuels.

    Seven new biobased surfactant technologiesNew technologies are making it easier than ever to make products from renewable feedstocks. Inform takes a look at the key att ributes of seven novel biobased surfac-tant technologies.

    Enhanced oil recovery and household laundrymore alike than you might thinkEnhanced oil recovery (EOR) and household laundering diff er greatly in scale but have similar mechanisms and technical requirements. A senior staff research en-gineer with Shell Internati onal Explorati on and Producti on Inc., USA, who received the AOCS 2013 Samuel Rosen Memorial Award describes the similariti es as well as some of the subtle diff erences.

  • Production of value-added co-products in industrial oilseedsScientists describe their work with the biopolymer polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and ex-plain why it makes an ideal co-product for oilseeds with applications in the nutrition and industrial markets.

    Ultrasound in palm oil milling: a paradigm shift for a traditional processRead how the benefits of ultrasound application in industrial plantsincluding increased yield of oil from fresh fruit bunches, enhanced throughput, and reduced waste solids and energy consumptionare being quantified.

    Engineered oilseed crops with fish oil DHA levelsEngineering marine oils into land plants has been a long-standing goal of oilseed bio-engineers. Researchers at Australias national science agency provide an update on the progress that has been made with respect to the most challenging long-chain -3 fatty acid: docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

    The use of carboxylate surfactants to enhance deinking in flotation processing during paper recyclingIn the United States alone, about 45 million tons (41 million metric tons) of paper and paperboard are recycled each year. A chemical engineering professor sheds new light on the process used to remove the ink.

    Do oil color scales make you see red . . . or yellow?Color measurement is a critical aspect of oil quality. Learn how selecting and communi-cating the correct color scale can eliminate confusion and costly misunderstandings.
