Paraffin wax is a type of wax derived from petroleum, coal, or shale oil that is used in a variety of applications. It is a white or colorless soft solid with a low melting point, making it ideal for use in candles, cosmetics, and other products. Paraffin wax can also be used as an electrical insulator and lubricant.
The equipment used in paraffin wax production includes distillation columns, heaters, pumps, filters, and other related machinery. The process begins with the heating of crude oil to separate the paraffin from other components. The heated crude oil is then passed through distillation columns to further refine the paraffin wax. After this process is complete, the paraffin wax is filtered and cooled before being packaged for sale.
