Class Code: 4686
Per NCCI's Scopes Code Description:
Code 4686 applies to employers that manufacture vegetable oil by the solvent extraction process. The solvent extraction process involves placing a chemical (the solvent) in contact with a substance to separate various components of that substance. The substance is vegetable (plant-like) in nature and the component intended for separation is that vegetable’s oil. The process may require that the vegetative material be prepared by cracking, steaming, heating and flaking prior to being placed in contact with the solvent. The process then involves placing the solvent in contact with the vegetative material, resulting in a mixture of oil and solvent. The oil is then separated from this mixture and further processed as necessary to prepare the oil for storage or shipment.
