3V Tech offers various solution for the purification and concentration of fatty acids of animal and vegetal origin. (eg. Omega 3, etc)Depending on the composition of the stream, different technologies can be applied, but the core process will always remain the evaporation/distillation.
The recovery process takes place at temperature and vacuum conditions determined after testing, allowing to reach high final products purity in conformity of oleochemical market requirement.
A fatty acids purification plant can consist of several stages, depending on the nature of the fatty acids and of the impurities to be removed.
A fatty acids purification plant needs the following utilities and plant design will take into consideration their (un)availability at site:
A fatty acids purification plant can be a self-standing and independent unit or can be part of an integrated plant concept as outlined in a simplified schematic showing the main additional section hereafter:
