Fat Splitting


  • Long retention time in the splitting column
  • Efficient internal heat exchange to maximize thermal efficiency
  • No catalyst required
  • Splitting can be accomplished in a single column for efficient operation


  • Generously sized equipment to allow for variations in feedstock quality
  • Automatic control of level, pressure and temperature process parameters
  • Split fatty acids are discharged from the top of the column and concentrated in a flash vessel. These fatty acids can then be further purified with fatty acid distillation
  • Sweetwater is discharged from the bottom of the column and concentrated in a flash vessel. This sweetwater can then be further purified with various processes, including glycerin refining
