Companies Explore Use of Nano Cavitation Reactor Technology in Vegetable Oil Industry

(Nanowerk News) Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (CTI) commented today that it has entered into an agreement with Desmet Ballestra Group to evaluate CTI's Nano Cavitation Reactor technology and its potential benefits to the vegetable oil industry.
Desmet Ballestra is known for their specialized expertise and are the market leaders in the field of the extraction and refining of oils and fats from oleaginous materials and the conversion of crude oils and fats into value-added products such as edible oil, shortening, biodiesel, detergents, surfactants and soap.
Speaking on behalf of Cavitation Technologies, Mr. Roman Gordon, CEO said: "We are very pleased to be working with the Desmet Ballestra Group and look forward to our cooperation in the vegetable oil industry. We expect their knowledge, experience, expertise and leadership will help us realize the full worldwide potential of our technology."
CTI's new GPD system is based on its patented flow-through Nano Cavitation Reactor technology that promotes the formation, growth, and implosive collapse of gas or vapor-filled bubbles in liquids. The process involves the mixing of crude vegetable oil and water and exposing them to high-pressure impulses and micro explosions at the molecular level causing the gums to become denser thus allowing efficient separation and higher oil yields.
This environmentally friendly technology represents a significant advancement over current 40-year-old process techniques.
