Palm oil extraction process — BTMA PALM MACHINE

palm oil mill

Palm oil extraction process. People can obtain crude palm oil (CPO) and palm meal (PE) from palm pulp through the process of boiling, crushing, and pressing; at the same time, during the crushing process, the fruit of the palm (ie, palm kernel) is separated. After crushing and removing the husk, the remaining kernels are pressed to obtain Crude Palm Kernel Oil (CPKO) and Palm Kernel Meal (PKE).

Oil palm fruit contains two different oils, palm oil is obtained from the pulp; palm kernel oil is obtained from palm seeds (kernels), the former of which is more important. All of the above products are effectively used in food, chemical, agricultural and other fields. It can be said that palm is a good economical plant.

Palm oil extraction process. After the above-mentioned primary stage of extraction, crude palm oil and crude palm kernel oil are sent to refineries for refining, and after removal of free fatty acids, natural pigments, and odors, they become salad-grade oils-refined palm oil (RBD PO) and palm oil. Salad Oil (RBD PKO). Refined palm oil is nearly colorless and transparent in liquid state, and nearly white in solid state.

In addition, according to the needs of different users, palm oil can be further fractionated and processed to form palm oleic acid (PFAD), palm olein (OLEAN), palm stearin (STEARINE or ST). Oil palm fruit contains more lipolytic enzymes, so the harvested fruit must be processed or sterilized in time. Palm crude oil is easily hydrolyzed to generate more free fatty acids, and the acid value increases rapidly, so it must be refined in time. or split.
