BRIEF OVERVIEW Refined Glycerine, also recognized as glycerol or glycerin, emerges as a foundational sugar alcohol with three hydroxyl groups, imparting water solubility and hygroscopic attributes. This crystal-clear, colorless, and fragrance-free liquid, distinguished by a high boiling point and viscosity, reveals inherent sweetness and minimal toxicity. Boasting a density of 1.26 g/cm³, it originates from petrochemical feedstock and serves diverse sectors, including food, medicine, cosmetics, personal care, and biodiesel production.
The initial treatment of palm fruit involves meticulous threshing to eliminate the primary stem and attached spikelets.
The application of steam to palm fruits prevents hydrolysis and oxidation, facilitating the detachment of kernel, gum, and resin.
Mechanically mixing and pounding sterilized fruits release palm oil, aided by additional heat.
Hydraulic pressure extraction is employed to obtain palm oil from processed fruits.
The extracted oil undergoes purification, involving the addition of hot water for impurity removal and subsequent filtration.
Solvent extraction with methanol eliminates free fatty acids, crucial for preventing oil oxidation.
Hydrolysis breaking down triglycerides into glycerol and fatty acids necessitates further refining for refined glycerine.
Separation processes refine the mixture of glycerine and fatty acids through distillation.
Remaining methanol from the deacidification process is evaporated to produce fully refined glycerine.
Glycerine plays a pivotal role as a raw material in pharmaceuticals, contributing to medications, suppositories, cough remedies, and anesthetics.
In cosmetics, glycerine acts as a water retainer, preserving product softness, creaminess, and storage life.
Glycerine finds utility in athletics for hydration and serves as a sweetener in various food products.
Ongoing research explores glycerine for fuel additives, mitigating harmful emissions. Its lubricating properties enhance machine performance, reduce friction, dissipate heat, and prevent machinery overheating. Glycerine's economic viability deems it valuable in chemical intermediates and diverse industrial applications.
