Storage & Handling

18 months

Bulk Product

Typical bulk storage period or “shelf-life” of oils and shortenings held in bulk is three to four weeks under controlled conditions — protected from light and moisture, at the correct temperature and under nitrogen blanket.

Packaged Product

18 months from Date of Pack. Testing toward end of anticipated shelf-life may suggest that shelf-life may be extended. Please request assistance if this is required.

Bulk Product

Bulk oils should be stored and shipped under controlled conditions to protect from light and moisture, maintain correct temperature and with nitrogen blanket. Storage conditions should be maintained so to minimize the impact of the following four (4) causes of degradation:

  • Heat – The oil should ideally be held between 60-100°F for oils that are liquid at room temperature and 15-25°F above the melting point for oils that are solid at room temperature.
  • Exposure to oxygen – Oxidative deterioration is the main cause for stability problems. Ways to minimize exposure to oxygen are:
    • Be sure oil does not free-fall into tank, i.e., fill from the bottom or have a downspout from the top to below the surface.
    • If a recirculation system is used, be sure there are no air leaks around flanges, pump seals, etc.
    • Only recirculate the oil long enough to maintain a homogeneous mixture, i.e., the more it is mixed, the greater the chance of deterioration.
    • If the oil is to be held for extended periods of time (over three weeks), nitrogen blanketing the tank is recommended.
  • Light – Light can cause deterioration of liquid wax and measures should be taken to minimize this exposure. This is only a problem in fiberglass tanks that are exposed to direct sunlight or indoor lighting — steel or insulated tanks do not usually have light exposure problems.
  • Trace metals – Trace metals such as copper and iron are extremely pro-oxidant and care should be taken to avoid any places where these substances might be introduced to the oil. Things to avoid are any fittings or valves that are constructed of copper or brass.
