Refined castor oil(RCO) is extracted from Refined Commercial Grade Castor Oil(CCO), that is produced by crushing the steam-cooked castor seeds of the expeller. RCO is used as an essential component that serves as a lubricant in vitamin and mineral tablet coatings and as a raw material for the manufacture of value-added castor oil derivatives.
The CCO is processed by the bleaching and filtering method that helps to minimize the quality of colour, F.F.A.( Free Fatty Acid) and moisture. Furthermore, Refined Castor Oil is used to manufacture other derivatives of castor oil and useful industrial products.
FSG/BSS Castor Oil finds application in a wide variety of uses and is the starting material for most other derivatives of Castor Oil
