Please note the time zone for the webinar is CDT (Chicago, USA).

In this webinar, Alan Paine will address misconceptions and misunderstandings about deodorizing that have grown in the industry over the years. Paine will provide the opportunity to unravel some of these issues without commercial bias. As a foundation to this webinar, it is important to understand that the process of deodorization is affected by the temperature of the oil, the operating pressure, the amount of steam injected and the amount of time the oil is at high temperature. This webinar will provide a better understanding of how these four factors interact to get the best result. The goals of this webinar are for attendees to understand the effects of time, temperature, pressure and steam flow, realize that conflicting process requirements require a compromise of process conditions and recognize that although modern plants are very efficient there is always room for improvement.

Alan Paine recently retired from Desmet Balllestra where most of his career involved edible oil refinery design. He is now an independent consultant interested in part-time consultancy work.
