The oil palm tree first originated in West Africa. Industrial palm oil is red and is extracted from the palm fruit, while palm kernel oil is white and is extracted from the inner kernel.

How Palm Kernel Oil Is Made?

Just like other types of oil materials, palm kernel oil can be produced either by oil press expeller or by oil extraction equipment. Depending on the customer's requirements, we can also offer a process of pressing followed by leaching.

How Palm Kernel Oil Is Made

  • Of these three methods of oil extraction, the most commonly used is the mechanical pressing method, which consists of four main steps: pulverising the palm kernel, cooking, oil extraction and filtration. The press method is less expensive and more efficient, making it suitable for startups to start the palm kernel oil production business, as well as for investors looking to invest in a large palm kernel oil pressing plant.
  • Oil solvent extracting method mainly consists of crushing, solvent extraction, solvent separation from the solvent mixture, solvent separation from the wet powder and solvent recovery. Compared to the pressing method, this method produces a more complete oil. 
  • For this reason, some customers choose a combination of pressing and leaching called pre-pressing & solvent extraction. The main processes are crushing, cooking, pressing and solvent extraction processes.
