HEAD Engineering AB has signed a contract with Vallviks Bruk AB, a company in Rottneros Group, to design and erect a new separator based Tall Oil Plant, PINOLA TOPP 3000. The plant will be installed during 2024 and will be able to produce 3 ton/h Crude Tall Oil (CTO).

PINOLA TOPP is a robust and continuous process for the production of Crude Tall Oil from kraft soap that enables the highest possible yield and CTO quality. The key unit processes include a dynamic mixer and reactor for improved acidulation, and a highly efficient centrifugal separator which both contributes to low acid consumption and very high yield, above 98%.
