Palm fruit is a rich source of minerals and vitamins. It produces two kinds of oils. One is called palm oil that is extracted from the pulp of the fruit and the other is called palm kernel oil that is extracted from the kernel of the palm. (Related Post: Palm Oil Processing Business Plan >>)
Start Palm Kernel Oil Milling Business
Palm kernel oil is yellowish in color and rich in lauric acid which is a saturated fatty acid. People use it in foods as well as in cosmetics and other personal products. This oil is extracted with the help of palm kernel oil milling machine which consists of several parts that collectively play their role in palm kernel oil production process. Reliable equipment and advanced process of palm kernel oil production are key for the sucess of palm kernel oil production business.
Complete Palm Kernel Oil Milling Machine and Process
In fact, palm kernel oil milling machine is closely related with palm kernel oil milling process. Here briefly introduces the widely used palm kernel oil milling machines in a complete palm kernel oil factory.
Complete Palm Kernel Oil Milling Plant
- Palm Kernel Cracking and Crushing Machine
Palm kernel cracking machine cracks the palm nut and separates the shell from the palm kernel. This shell is either wasted or used as biofuel. Now the obtained kernel is cleaned and crushed to reduce its size because large-sized kernels can damage the efficiency of palm kernel oil extraction machine.

- Palm Kernel Cooking and Oil Pressing Machine
A steam cooker is used for cooking palm kernel. The high moisture level and temperature in the cooker is used to reduce the oil viscosity, denature proteins, and gather palm kernel oil. This pretreatment of palm kernel is a crucial step as it affects oil quality. A mechanical force is applied to the pretreated kernel with the help of a palm kernel oil pressing machine. It extracts the oil from the kernel and leaves the press cake behind. (Read more: Palm Kernel Oil Extraction Machine Price in Nigeria >>)
- Crude Palm Kernel Oil Filtering and Refining Machine
After the above steps, the oil obtained in impure and has dirt and other unwanted particles in it. Through filtration by palm oil filter machine, these particles are removed and purified oil is obtained. It can be further refined with the help of palm kernel oil refining machine to reduce excessive acids and other components that are not needed in the edible oils. The oil achieved after this step is ready to be used for cooking purposes. (Latest Project: 20TPD Palm Kernel Oil Refining and Fractionation Plant in Nigeria >>)

Palm Kernel Oil Milling Process
Like palm kernel oil milling machines, the palm kernel oil milling process consists of several parts or steps. Each step is described below.
Palm Kernel Oil Milling Process
- Palm Kernel Pretreatment Process
First palm kernel nuts are cleaned properly to remove hindrance causing particles like dust and fibers. Once it has cleaned, the nut is cracked to achieve palm kernel nutshell and kernel. Shell and kernel both are separated either through dry separation or wet separation. Palm kernels have a big size which needs to be reduced to continue further processing. So for that, it is crushed to decrease its size. If a single crushing does not give the desired result, crushing is repeated until an appropriate size is achieved.
Palm Kernel Cracking Process
Palm kernel has 20% water content in it which needs to be reduced to get the oil of desired quality. It is dried until the moisture level becomes 7%. Now comes one of the most important steps. In this step, the crushed palm kernel is cooked in the steam. This pretreatment softens it and makes it ready for the palm kernel oil extraction process.
- Palm Kernel Oil Extracting Process
Crushed and cooked palm kernel has all the oil gathered in it in a less viscous state. It is pressed with a great force which removes the excessive kernel oil from the kernel. The oil extracted in the above step has impurities in it. To make it able to be used in cooking or cosmetics, all these impurities have to be eliminated thoroughly. So, a filter is used to separate impurities from the oil.
- Palm Kernel Oil Purification Process
To make this purified oil edible, the excessive acidic and similar components are either removed or reduced from the oil. Now, the achieved end product is packed and sold in the market for various purposes.

Is Common Vegetable Oil Extractor Suitable to Process Palm Kernel Oil?
Vegetable oil extractor or vegetable oil press machine can process a very wide range of oilseeds, like peanut/groundnut, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, soybean, etc. Most people are wondering can the vegetable oil press machine process palm oil and palm kernel oil. In fact, palm fruit is different from other oil crops. The extraction of palm oil and palm kernel oil requires professional palm oil presser and palm kernel oil presser. (Read more: Palm Oil Press Machine >>)
Small Palm Kernel Oil Milling Machine
But, if the palm kernel oil milling plant is set up in small capacity and also want to produce other type of vegetable oils, the common vegetable oil press machine is a cost effective choice. Otherwise, it is better to choose the professional palm kernel oil press machine to ensure its large capacity.
