1. Raw materials reception and storage
Workers pick fresh fruit bunches (FFB) , transport them to palm oil mill plant with cars, get the weight by Loadometer and discharge them to material platform which is specially designed for crude palm oil processing, laying up for latter process. Open the gate of discharging platform, FFB would fall down to the conveyor automatically and be sent to sterilizing section.

The function of sterilizing, known as stewing in high temperature, is to avoid the deterioration of fruit. This sterilizing section of crude palm oil processing can avoid the increase of palm oil AV by stewing the fruit about 60min with 300kPa steam in a specialized sterilizer.

3. Threshing section
The palm fruit proportion is about 60% of the FFB. In this section, we always use rotating drum thresher to separate palm fruit from the bunches.

The purpose of crushing in crude palm oil processing is to destroy palm skin, separate the palm pulp and nuts, pound palm pulp and to damage the cell structure of palm pulp by heating at the same time, which avail the latter pressing section.
Palm fruit crashing machine
In crude palm oil processing, screw palm oil press is common equipment we use, the outcome of which is mixture of water, oil &residue and presscake (fiber cake).
