What equipment is used in palm kernel oil production?
The equipment used in the production of palm kernel oil mainly includes fiber and nucleus separation equipment, nuclear grading sieve equipment, kernel shell separator, crusher, steaming pan, palm kernel oil press, plate and frame filter, etc. The main working principle of the equipment used in palm kernel oil production is as follows:
1. Fiber and nuclear separation equipment:
The fiber and core separation equipment is composed of impeller separator, transmission mechanism, slag discharge mechanism, etc. It uses the difference in specific gravity between palm fiber and palm core to separate palm core. This facilitates the processing operations of the subsequent process and also reduces the wear and tear on the equipment.
2. Nuclear grading screen equipment:
The nuclear grading screen equipment is composed of screen box, vibrating motor, spring and other components. It uses the vibration generated by the vibrating motor and spring to divide palm kernels with different masses into large and small nuclei. It has the characteristics of small size and convenient operation, which is beneficial to the subsequent operation of fully processing palm kernels of different sizes during the separation of kernels and shells.
3. Kernel shell separator:
Kernel Shell Separator is a device that crushes palm kernels of different sizes by adjusting different parameters, and then separates the two according to the quality difference between the shell of the palm kernel and the quality of the palm kernel. It has the characteristics of simple operation, small footprint and high degree of automation, which facilitates the processing operations of subsequent processes and reduces the wear and tear on equipment.
4. Roller Crusher:
The roller crusher is composed of rollers, roller support bearings, pressing and adjusting devices, etc. It is a device that crushes palm kernels through continuous extrusion between the rollers. It has the characteristics of small footprint, compact structure, and simple operation. By crushing palm kernels, the particle size of palm kernels becomes smaller and the contact area becomes larger, which is beneficial to the transfer of temperature and moisture in subsequent processes.
5. Drum steamer:
The drum steamer is mainly composed of a frame, a hopper, a cylinder, and a fire shield. By steaming and frying the crushed palm kernels at high temperature, the temperature, water and humidity of the palm kernels are adjusted so that the crushed palm kernels can reach the In better condition before pressing. It has the characteristics of simple operation and small footprint.
6. Palm kernel oil press:
The palm kernel oil press is mainly composed of a frame, a hopper, a gearbox, a pressing chamber, and a pressing snail. It is a device that squeezes out the oil in the palm kernel through the continuous extrusion of the pressing snail. The palm kernel oil press machine is specially designed by Henan Guorui Engineering Technology Co., Ltd. according to the characteristics of palm kernel, which is easy to operate, easy to maintain, and has a high degree of automation.
7. Plate and frame filter:
Plate and frame filter consists of filter frame, filter plate and filter cloth. It is mainly used to remove solid suspended impurities in crude palm kernel oil, and solves the problems of difficult filtration and slag removal of crude oil in the production process of palm kernel oil. It has the characteristics of convenient operation and less loss of filtrate.
