Dimension™ Corn Oil Extraction Aid Increases Corn Oil Yield and Improves Corn Oil Quality

A fuel ethanol plant located in the Midwestern United States installed a disk-stack centrifuge at great capital expense to extract corn oil from its process. However, the plant’s anticipated corn oil yield was not being achieved and its return on investment was not being realized. In hopes of increasing its corn oil production and improving its return on capital, the plant agreed to trial a Dimension corn oil extraction aid. The following benefits were recorded during the trial:

  • Corn oil yield was increased by 200%
  • Corn oil quality was improved
  • Feed quality specifications were met
  • System downtime was reduced

Since permanently converting to the extraction aid, the plant has increased its corn oil production by more than $1 million per year.
