What is the process of palm kernel oil extraction?
The complete process of palm kernel oil extraction include fiber separation, palm kernel cracker and shell separation system, crusher, cooker, palm kernel oil press machine and filteration. Specific configuration could be changed based on your actual requirements and needs. In this article, we will discuss the mature production process of palm kernel oil extraction and the equipment used in each step.
Complete process of palm kernel oil extraction
Step 1: Fiber separation
The first step in palm kernel oil extraction is fiber separation. The fiber separator is used to remove the fibers from the shell of palm kernels, making it easier for subsequent peeling and pressing. The remaining fibers can be used for fuel or feed.
Step 2: Palm kernel cracker and shell separation system
Palm kernel cracker and shell separation system
The palm kernel cracker and shell separation system includes a magnetic separator, nuclear grading sieve, shell peeling machine, air separation column, and shakelon. The magnetic separator removes metal impurities, while the nuclear grading sieve divides palm kernels into evenly sized ones. The shell peeling machine uses impact and friction to break fruit kernels. The air separation column allows palm kernels to fall into the hopper of mobile phone palm kernels based on the weight and force area of palm kernels and shells. The separation rate can reach around 95% through a bucket elevator. The shakelon uses wind power to create a whirlwind shape on the shell, preventing it from drifting around when it comes out.
Step 3: Crusher
The crusher is for breaking the palm kernels, which is more beneficial for later steaming, frying, and squeezing to extract palm kernel oil.
Step 4: Cooker
The cooker is used to adjust the moisture content and palm kernel temperature, making it more conducive to oil production.
Step 5: Palm kernel oil press machine
Palm kernel oil press machine
The oil press is the most critical step in palm kernel oil extraction. Our oil press is mainly 500 kilograms per hour, using advanced technology and built by professional engineers. It has the characteristics of high oil yield, durability, and high efficiency.
Step 6: Filteration
Plate and frame filter
In the filtration stage, we mainly use a plate and frame filter, which is used to remove impurities in the oil and some moisture.
