Samples of soybean oil were centrifuged in

a Sharples supercentrifuge at speeds varying from

15,000 to 45,000 revolutions per minute and with

ring dam sizes of # 7 to # 9 in use in order to

determine the effect of centrifuging upon the

rancidity, odor, color, end taste of the oil.

It was found that most of the rancidity could

be removed, the taste improved slightly, the color

only slightly changed, and the odor of the soybean

oil improved very much, In general, the quality of

the oil was made much more desirable although thirty-five per cent of the oil was lost during the process as soap stock.
