The ZT-100 Water In Oil monitor works well with a wide range of vegetable oils. It can be used to determine water content or water contamination from raw/crude oil as well as for refined final products. The ZT-100 also works well with derived bio-fuels.
The ZT-100 has been used successfully for Palm Oil in Indonesia and Malaysia. It has primarily been used to create an alarm for contaminated truck loads. Fitted to unloading bays the units serves the refineries and ensures that the incoming loads are not contaminated with water.
The successful application of the ZT-100 in refineries is now creating interest upstream, and Palm Oil Mills are showing an increasing interest with units finding their way into storage and loading facilities at the mills.
What is Palm Oil?
Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp (reddish pulp) of the fruit of the oil palms, primarily the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis, and to a lesser extent from the American oil palm Elaeis oleifera and the maripa palm Attalea maripa. It is naturally reddish in color because of a high beta-carotene content. It is not to be confused with palm kernel oil derived from the kernel of the same fruit, or coconut oil derived from the kernel of the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). The differences are in color (raw palm kernel oil lacks carotenoids and is not red), and in saturated fat content: Palm mesocarp oil is 41% saturated, while Palm Kernel oil and Coconut oil are 81% and 86% saturated respectively.
