Towards the best of linseed…
At Vandeputte, the traditional process, initiated in 1887, respecting the natural qualities of linseed, is still used in our modern facilities with a capacity of over 100 000 tons a year.
Our intention was to industrialize and improve constantly our tool while preserving the purity of the "gesture".
Oil factory : the expertise of linseed, labeled ISO 9001 : 2008
A first cold pressure results in a very pure oil of very high quality.
A second hot pressure ends into oil and into linseed expellers, very useful for feeding livestock.
To purify and stabilize the raw linseed oil, it is processed in our refinery unit, prior to any subsequent heat treatment (cooking) in view of the manufacturing of resins, varnishes, stand oils and other binders for coatings.
