Palm kernel oil processing machine can be used to get oil from palm kernel. If you want to product palm kernel oil, there are some knowledge about palm kernel oil processing machine, which you should know. Such as palm kernel crushing, palm kernel extruding, palm kernel cooking and palm kernel pressing.
Palm kernel oil press machine
There are different pressing way in palm kernel oil processing line:
1. Direct screw-pressing way
Some mills crush the kernels directly in the presses without any pre-treatment. Double pressing usually is required to ensure efficient oil extraction. The screw-presses used normally are less than 10 tonnes per unit per day.
2. Partial pre-treatment way
The kernels are first broken down to smaller fragments by grinding prior to screw-pressing. In some cases, cooking is also carried out.
3. Complete pre-treatment way
The full pre-treatment processes described earlier are carried out prior to screw-pressing. Plants with larger capacities (50-500 tonnes per day) choose complete pre-treatment and the equipment is usually imported from Europe. FATECO and Faith Engineering now offer the complete line for small-scale operators.
Main process in palm kernel oil processing line:

◆ Cleaning section:
It is used for removing the iron impurities, stone, fiber and others. These impurities are bad for machines, especially for the palm kernel oil procrssing machine.
◆ Crushing section:
Cruching section is important in palm kernel oil processing line. Because the palm kernel is hard and big size, it is required to crash to smaller and even pieces. If once crashing can not reach the requirements, the second crashing is required. Before crushing, palm kernel must be softened and dryed. The centrifugal crusher can break nuts and separate palm kernel out completely.
◆ Palm kernel and nuts shell separation section:
Palm kernel and nuts shell separation machine is our new technology. It is on basis of the difference of relative density of palm kernel and shell. The palm kernel getting from this machine can be pressed by palm kernel oil processing machine directly.

◆ Palm kernel drying section:
Fresh kernel contains 20% moisture. Palm kernel has no mildew during transportation and storage while moisture drops below 7%.
◆ Cooking section:
It is used for heating and cooking the crashing materials, to make is suitable for pressing, doing like this can help final user get the maximum oil and good quality cakes.
◆ Palm kernel oil pressing section:
Palm kernel oil pressing section is similar with usual oilseeds. The pre-pressing by palm kernel oil processing machine can obtain 1/4 palm kernel oil, and the residual oil need twice pressing.
◆ Palm kernel oil filtering section:
After pressing, there is an essential section in palm kernel oil processing line, which is filtering section. After clarifying, the crude palm kernel oil will become more clear and with less impurities. If there is crude palm kernel oil refinery plant, we must filter the crude oil to avoid to jam the oil pipes during refining processes.
