Citrus Oil Purification


Winter Haven, FL
This multi-purpose high vacuum distillation system is designed to continuously fold orange oil and subsequently batch distill the folded oil. The project represents the second successful citrus oil system designed and constructed by KMPS for this Southeast US producer. The process design is based upon development work performed at KMPS’ Houston Pilot Plant.

The system is a continuous batch operation with four different operating modes. KMPS provided all equipment, piping, structural steel, foundation design, and a DeltaV controls system.
