Hydrogenation of Fatty matter is the single largest reaction in Fats Industry.  It consists of the direct addition of Hydrogen at double bonds in the Fatty Acid chain.  The degree of Hydrogenation is directly related to the Iodine number.  Hydrogenation is a means of converting the Liquid Fats to Plastic Fats or in other words reducing the Iodine value by reducing the double bonds in the fatty acid chain.

CCI provides comprehensive technology for the Hydrogenation of Oils, Fats and Fatty Acids.  The process employed by CCI is a continuous operation with low values of Catalyst and Hydrogen consumption.

For Hydrogenation to take place, gaseous Hydrogen, Liquid Fatty matter and the Solid Catalyst must be brought together with very efficient mixing at a suitable reaction temperature.   The reaction is brought about by a high level of mixing of the suspended Catalyst and Oil in a closed vessel in an atmosphere of Hydrogen.

The rate at which the Hydrogenation proceeds, under the conditions outlined above, depends upon the efficiency of mixing of this 3–phase reaction mixture, the temperature, the activity of Catalyst and its concentration.
