How to start your own palm kernel oil processing business?
Palm kernel oil (PKO) is has very similar compositions and properties as coconut oil. It is a kind of co-product of palm oil production. With the fast growth of palm oil, palm kernel oil will replace coconut oil as the main resource of lauric acid.
Palm Fruit Oil Vs Palm Kernel Oil
The chemical properties and physical properties of these two oils are very different. They also have different fatty acid compositions.

Palm Kernel Processing Method
The basic process of palm kernel oil extraction is: palm nut & fiber separation, palm kernel crushing, kernel & shell separation, flaking machine (optional), palm kernel oil pressing machine (oil extraction), palm oil clarification, filtering, crude palm kernel oil.

Palm Fiber and Palm Kernel Seperating Machine
Generally, a complete palm kernel crushing plant includes nut & fiber separation system, crushing system, oil pressing system and crude oil clarification system. The main machines used in palm kernel oil extraction plant include nut & fiber separating machine, palm kernel crushing machine, cooking machine, palm kernel oil extraction machine (mechanical screw pressing), oil filter press machine, etc.
- Nut & Fiber Separation: It is also known as palm kernel recovery.
- Palm Kernel Crushing: Toothed Roll Crusher is generally used in palm kernel oil mill.
- Palm Kernel and Shell Separation: The kernel is sent to palm kernel oil extraction machine, while palm kernel shells are sent to boiler to be used as fuel. Separating the shells from the kernel can not only greatly improve the oil yield and production efficiency, but also help reduce the wear of oil extraction equipment.
- Palm Kernel Oil Extraction: A method of extracting oil by means of a mechanical pressing is adopted. Click here to read more about palm kernel oil expeller >>
- Clarification and Filtration: The impurities in the oil are separated through clarification and filtration process to get relatively pure palm kernel oil.
- Crude Palm Kernel Oil: The quality of palm kernel oil obtained through the above steps is already up to the standard of edible oil. But if you to produce high quality kernel oil product for special purposes, you can send the crude oil to palm kernel oil refinery machine for further processing.
Set Up a Palm Kernel Oil Processing Plant
If you live in Nigeria, Malaysia or Indonesia where there is a strong demand for palm kernel oil for both domestic and industrial use, you should consider starting palm kernel oil milling business and running your own palm kernel production plant. The basic education and training required for the entire palm kernel oil business can be easily obtained by consulting professional palm kernel oil machine manufacturer for guidance or by scouring the Internet.

Palm Kernel Processing Plant for Manufacturing Edible Oil
In addition to customized crushing machines, efficient and large palm kernel oil production should be accomplished within a professional and well-designed processing plant. That's why you should establish a palm kernel processing mill if you want to make huge profits from palm oil industry. So, what’s the palm kernel processing plant? And what’s the basic production processes in this processing plant? How much it will cost to set up a palm kernel oil processing plant, from small scale to large scale? Please keep reading and find all the answers. (You may also be interested in Plam Kernel Oil Extraction Plant)
Palm kernel oil processing plant is mainly composed of two processing lines: crude oil production line and refinery line.

Choose the suitable oil refining machinery for your palm oil mill plant
The refining equipment can be divided into: batch refining equipment, semi-continuous refining equipment, and full continuous refining equipment. Generally, if the processing capacity is less than 20 ton/day, we suggest batch type process design. If the processing capacity is between 20 ton/day and 50 ton/day, semi-continuous type is suggested. For large industrial scale palm kernel oil mill with capacity more than 50 ton/day, you should choose full continuous refining process and equipment.
For higher quality, the crude palm kernel oil should be refined (how to refine palm kernel oil?). According to the using purpose, palm kernel oil can be refined trough physical process and chemical process to remove harmful or useless impurities and substance. It is worth mentioning that our palm kernel oil refinery equipment is also ideal to refine other vegetable oils. The basic palm kernel oil refining machines in a processing plant include degumming machine, deacidification or neutralization, bleaching or decoloring machine, distillation or deodorization machine and the palm kernel fractionation machine.

What’s palm kernel crushing machine?
Palm kernel is an edible seed that is obtained from oil palm fruit. This kind of fruit can produce two different oils,one is palm oil that is extracted from the sarcocarp of palm fruit, the other is palm kernel oil that is extracted from the inner side (fruit core). Palm kernel crushing machine is specially designed to crack the shell of palm nuts through intensive friction. The palm kernel can further processed for edible or other purposes.
