Set Up A Complete Palm Oil Processing Factory
Palm oil provides many uses from being used as fuel for automobiles to a range of food applications. The palm oil industry has rapidly increased recent years. In this guide, we will discuss the production of palm oil, the world market, the use of palm oil processing machines and the growth and harvest of the oil palm tree.
Manufacturing Process of Palm Oil
Before the use of palm oil processing machines, the palm oilseed starts at the plantation. Palm oil comes from the fruit of the oil palm. The oil palm tree has an average lifespan of about 25-30 years and produces fruit bunches from 3 years after field planting. A single bunch of oil palm weighs between 10-25 kg and contains up to 3,000 fruitlets. With the use of palm oil processing machine, each step continues to the next. Palm oil is made by pressing the mesocarp of the fruit once the nut is removed.
- The first step is to harvest the palm fruit and remove the fruitlets from the bunch.
- Threshing is either done manually or with the use of palm oil processing equipment.
- During the sterilization process, the fruit is partially cooked in heat to stop the enzymatic reactions that lead to oxidation.
- For the digestion process, the palm fruit is crushed before it reaches extraction and heats the pulp to maximize the amount of oil.
- Once the crude palm oil is expelled from the pulp in palm oil press machine, it will be filtered in a clarifying tank to remove excess moisture.
- Once the oil has been refined and thoroughly checked for fat content and moisture, it is then ready to be exported as cooking oil. (Related article: Palm Oil Refining Plant)
