|Title:||Liquid-liquid equilibrium for systems of canola oil, oleic acid, and short-chain alcohols|
|Abstract:||Vegetable oils can be deacidified by liquid-liquid extraction. The difference in polarity between the triglycerides, the principal components of the oil, and the solvent guarantees the formation of two phases and permits the removal of free fatty acids. A knowledge of the equilibrium between the phases of such systems is important, however if adequate equipment for the implementation of the process is to be designed. The present paper establishes experimental data for systems of canola oil, oleic acid, and alcohols, subsequently adjusting the NRTL and UNIQUAC models to them for the calculation of activity coefficients. The results show the good descriptive quality of the models.|
