What are the equipments needed for palm oil processing machine？
There are three different technology to extract oil from palm fruit:simple technology,dry type technology and standard technology.
Different budget and scale of factory,you can chose different technology for this palm oil processing project.
Simple technology:suitable for small capacity,especially people in Africa,where the palm plantations is small,and mostly owned by farmers.
Palm oil production line
Dry type palm oil processing machine
Big palm oil project
Here is the process of 1t/h palm oil mill:
FFB--- Sterilizing ---Threshing ---Pressing---Filtration---CPO
*Threshing: Thresh the palm fruit from FFB.
In first choice: Use New-type thresher and easy for sterilizing
In second choice: Use Drum thresher and can thresh FFB after sterilizing clearly.
*Sterilizing: Use hot water to boil palm fruit to prevent FFA increase and make the fruit soften.
*Pressing: Use continuous screw press to press crude palm oil from palm fruit.
*Filtration: Use plate filter to get the large impurities out.
*CPO: The final oil is crude palm oil and can be edible directly or further refining.
If you want to start with a palm oil processing machine.first please check the market of FFB(Fresh palm fruit bunches),palm oil etc.find a site for this project.then write a business plan according to your research.then check the cost of machinery,and caculate a rough budget for this project.
