Refining is the core step of soap finishing, it is a combination of intimate homogenization and filtering of the soap.
Soap refining is a mechanical cold process which transforms mixed soap noodles (soap pellets) into formulated soap noodles. The final product is homogeneous and compact.
Soap Refining Stage as commonly defined is not a precise parameter for the following reasons:
- Different Simplex Refiners have different features (L/D ratio, installed kW, etc.)
- Mechanical conditions and maintenance determine sensible differences in the performances (i.e. a worn-out screw reduces the refining)
- The use of screens with different mesh sizes gives different soap refining results.
A soap Pelletizer is designed to transform soap of different size and shape into pellets and also to break aged soap noodles for an optimal feeding of refining-plodding stages.
DUPLEX VACUUM PLODDER
Duplex Vacuum Plodders are designed for homogenizing, refining, compressing and extruding the processed soap in form of a continuous soap bar, through the die-plate which gives the required shape to the soap bar.
The majority of our plodders are customized units which are available with different layout combinations, different L/D (length to diameter) ratios, use of various materials, several and customized screw (worm) designs, multiple options and of course are offered in different sizes.
