Spanish translation:y hojuelas "blancas" desolventizadas a temperatura
Explanation:
Flash desolventizing is a special process that accounts for less than 5 percent by volume of the
annual nationwide soybean crush. The production of flakes for human consumption generally follows
the flow diagram in Figure 9.11.1-3 for the "conventional" process, except for the desolventizing step.
In this step, the flakes from the oil extraction step are "flash" desolventized in a vacuum with
noncontact steam or superheated hexane. This step is followed by a final solvent stripping step using
steam. Both the hexane vapor from the flash/vacuum desolventizer and the hexane and steam vapors
from the stripper are directed to a condenser. From the condenser, hexane vapors pass to the mineral
oil scrubber and the hexane-water condensate goes to the separator, as shown in Figure 9.11.1-3. The
flakes produced by the flash process are termed "white flakes". A process flow diagram for the flash
desolventizing portion of the soybean process is shown in Figure 9.11.1-5. From the stripper, the white
flakes pass through a cooker (an optional step) and a cooler prior to further processing steps similar to
the "conventional" process. A plant that uses specialty or "flash" desolventizing requires different
equipment and is far less efficient in energy consumption and solvent recovery than a plant that uses
conventional desolventizing. Given these facts, solvent emissions are considerably higher for a
specialty desolventizing process than for a similar-sized conventional desolventizing process.
