Palm oil mill process machinery introduction:
Oil palm knowledge introduction：
Palm oil is extracted from the fruits of the oil palm trees (or some times referred to as oil palms). These trees, which originated in Africa, usually grow in the tropics. After being planted, a well fertilized oil palm tree can take 4 to 6 years to produce fruits for harvesting. The life expectancy of oil palms is 28 to 30 years.
Harvesting the Palm Fruit
The fruits grow in thick bundles which are tightly lodged in-between the branches. When ripe, the color of the palm fruits is red-orange. ln order to dislodge the bundle, the branches must first be chopped off. Palm fruit harvesting is physically exhausting and is even much harder when the palm-fruit bunches are bigger. The fruits are collected and transported to the palm oil mill process machinery.
Palm fruit sterilizing process:
Palm fruits are very hard and so they have to first be softened before doing anything with them.Continuous sterilizer of palm oil mill is major section of palm oil mill process machinery.Palm oil mill sterilizer also called palm bunch sterilization machine.We are professional palm oil extraction machine manufacturer.We can product vertical sterilizer or horizontal type sterilizer for palm oil mill according to the requirements of customer.Palm bunch sterilization machine utilizes high temperature (145℃, 90-120min) to cook palm bunches. Palm fruit can easily separate from palm bunches and become soft. Owing to increasing humidity of palm fruit, crude palm oil can be easily extracted from fruit. Palm kernel core can much easy separate from kernel shell, preventing enzymatic decomposition, and avoid elevated levels of free fatty acids.(Read more:Continuous sterilizer of palm oil mill )
Palm fruit threshing section:
Palm fruit threshing section is the major section of palm oil mill process machinery.Palm fruit threshing machine uses strong vibration to make separation of palm fruit from palm bunches. Palm fruit separates from bunches, sent to next section elevator through screw conveyor. Empty bunches through conveyor and charger, are transported to certain place for further treatment by car.(Read more:Palm fruit threshing machine)
Palm oil digesting and pressing process:
The palm fruits have beed processed are then conveyed to a screw palm oil press which efficiently extracts the oil from the fruits. The screw palm oil press machine outputs press cake and crude palm oil. The extracted crude palm oil contains fruit particles, dirt and water. On the other hand, the press cake is composed of palm fiber & nuts. Before being transferred to the palm oil clarification station for further processing, the crude palm oil is first screened using a vibrating screen so as to get rid of dirt and coarse fibers. The press cake is also transferred to the depericarpper for further processing. (Read more: Palm Oil Press Machine)
Palm oil clarification process:
Palm oil clarification station can extract crude palm oil from sludge. The obtained crude palm oil purity can reach up 90%. The extraction oil contains 45%-55% moisture, sludge and other impurities.(Read more: Palm oil clarification station)
Treatment of Waste Water (Effluent)
In the process of palm oil production will produce a lot of waste water, the waste water will direct emissions pollution of land.The waste water has high organic matter content, biochemical oxygen demand BOD is about 25000ppm, required by qualified deal before emissions. Pool sewage treatment system is the most used and effective treatment. This palm oil mill effluent treatment system is cost-effective, only needs adequate space, less investment costs.(Read more:Palm oil mill effluent treatment system station)
