What is the process for producing palm kernel oil?

The palm kernel oil pressing process and the palm fruit oil pressing process are two different processes. The palm kernel oil pressing process includes: fiber and core separation section, nuclear classification section, kernel shell separation section, crushing section, steaming and frying Section, pressing section and filtering section.

1. Fiber and core separation section:

First of all, it is necessary to separate the fiber and palm kernel through the separation equipment of fiber and core, which is convenient for the processing operation of the subsequent process and reduces the wear and tear on the equipment. Among them, the fiber can be used as biomass as fuel, and the palm kernel will be transported to the nuclear classification equipment for processing.

2. Nuclear classification section:

The separated palm kernels are transported to the nuclear grading equipment, and are divided into large nuclei and small nuclei according to the quality of the nuclei. This is conducive to the sufficient processing of palm kernels of different sizes during the subsequent separation of kernel shells.

3. Kernel shell separation section:

Next, the palm kernels of different sizes are transported to the kernel-shell separation equipment, and the parameters of the kernel-shell separator are adjusted to separate the palm kernel shells of different sizes from the palm kernels, reducing the wear and tear of the palm kernel shell on the equipment.

4. Crushing section:

Then the separated palm kernels are sent to the crusher for crushing, so that the particle size of the palm kernels becomes smaller and the contact area becomes larger, which is beneficial to the transfer of temperature and moisture in the subsequent process.

5. Steaming and frying section:

Afterwards, the crushed palm kernels are transported to the steaming pan for high-temperature steaming and frying, and the temperature, water and humidity of the palm kernels are adjusted to make them reach the best state before pressing.

6. Pressing section:

Then the steamed and fried palm kernels are transported to the palm kernel oil press, and the oil in the palm kernels is squeezed out through the continuous extrusion of the palm kernels by the squeezing snails in the palm kernel oil press. After pressing, we can get crude palm kernel oil and press cake. Crude palm oil will be transported to the next process for processing. The palm kernel oil press is specially designed by BTMA according to the characteristics of palm kernel, which is easy to operate, easy to maintain, and has a high degree of automation.

7. Filtration section:

Finally, the crude palm oil is sent to a plate-and-frame filter for filtration to obtain relatively clear palm kernel oil. If your budget is high and the local market has certain requirements for the quality of palm kernel oil, the filtered palm kernel oil can be processed through refining equipment, which can not only improve the quality of palm kernel oil but also improve your profit.

The above is the small palm kernel oil pressing process, this process is suitable for small palm kernel oil pressing plants.
