Palm oil is extracted from fresh fruit bunches (FFB) by a mechanical process. The main process of the palm oil factory includes：sterilization, threshing,pressing, clarification, purification, drying and storage. For the kernel line, there are steps such as nut/fiber separation, nut conditioning and cracking, cracked mixture separation, and kernel drying and storage. The dried kernels are often sold to palm kernel crushers for extraction of crude palm kernel oil.
Palm fruit bunch is transported to factory by truck.after the weighbridge weighing, driving to unloading platform, unload the fruit bunch through Ramp into hopper.
Palm Fruit Sterilization:
The palm fruit transported to sterilizer by FFB loading conveyor, sterilizing for 1 hour.The mixing be separated out is collected in catch oil pool to reclaimed oil, and the condensate be pumped to sewage treatment station.
Palm Fruit Threshing
Strong vibrations through the palm fruit from palm fruit bunches separated.
Palm Fruit Crushing and Pressing
Mixing tank will mash and crush palm fruit until broken after fruit threshing.The broken palm fruit flow into the palm oil press machine to pressing. Oil and water mixture outflow from pressing chamber shell hole, in the same time, the fiber cake and core was discharged from bonehead clearance and then drop in the packing anger of broken cake.
Fiber, Cake, Shell and Kernel Separation
The extrued fiber pie enters air separation system after crushed to get separation of fibers and cores.
Crusher divided fruit core into palm kernel and shell after separated with fiber. Air separation and washing systems separate palm kernels and shells. Shells enters boiler system as fuel, and palm kernels are storage after drying.
Palm Oil Clarification
Crude palm oil first diluted with water washing, through settlement and filtration, the fiber material removed from the oil, and then carry out continuous settlement, the whole divided into two parts: oil and sediment. The oil and the sludge will be taken out.
Palm kernel recovery section
The pressed palm fiber cake gets into the cake breaker then get into the winnowing system to separate the fiber and nut. Then nut will be crushed to get shell and kernel. Through winnowing and washing system to separate the shell and kernel. The shell ca be used as fuel for boiler, the kernel will be dried for storage.
