Drying and Finishing

Neat soap produced by one of the processes previously outlined contains over 30% moisture. The soap needs to be dried, typically by vacuum drying to a final moisture level of 8 to 16% for the final finishing steps.

These additives are mixed with the soap pellets, refined, and extruded into long continuous billet. The billet is cut and pressed into the desired shape and packaged (Fig. 2). Some
