This video shows the 60tpd palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant project in Ondo, Nigeria.
Palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant is a new method to extract palm kernel oil from palm kernel, which is to use n-hexan to solvent the palm kernel oil from palm kernel cakes, then evaporate the solvent from mixed oil, finally get crude palm kernel oil. The biggest advantage of palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant is high oil yield. In other words, it has low oil residual, less than 1%.

Generally speaking, palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant is suitable for large scale palm kernel oil mill plant, about more than 30 tons per day. Because before palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant, the palm kernel should be pretreated and prepressed. So the cost you build such a palm kernel oil mill plant is a little high, but the palm kernel oil you got everyday is more, too.
If you want to use solvent extraction method to produce palm kernel oil, the complete palm kernel oil mill plant includes: palm kernel pretreatment equipment, palm kernel oil prepressing machine, palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant and palm kernel oil refining plant (if you want to get refined palm kernel oil).

Palm kernel pretreatment and palm kernel oil prepressing equipment:
The palm kernel contains more than 50% oil. So the prepressing machine is necessary. And the pretreatment section can greatly increase the palm kernel oil solvent extraction efficiency and reduce production cost.

The Introduction of palm kernel pretreatment and palm kernel oil prepressing equipment:
Cleaning: Magnetic separator is used to remove metal debris. Vibrating screen is used to remove stones and sand.
Crushing: To break the palm kernels into small pieces, which can adjust the palm kernel to the best state before pressing.
Flaking: To press the palm kernel fragments into flakes (0.25 to 0.4 mm thick), so that you can increase oil yield.
Cooking: To adjust the moisture content of the palm kernel flakers to optimum level through steam conditioning. Besides, cooking process can also help reduce viscosity of oil, rupturing cell walls, coagulating the protein and facilitating separation of oil from protein materials. In the palm kernel oil pressing process, the meals are generally cooked to a moisture content of 3 % at 104-110°C.
Pressing: To prepress palm kernel oil, it is an important step before deeply palm oil extraction.
Clarification: After pressing,the oil contains 45-55% water, sludge and other dross. Separate oil and sludge and then purify oil to get more clean oil.
The introduction of palm kernel oil solvent extraction plant:
Palm kernel solvent extraction plant is used to extract palm kernel oil from palm kernel cake.In this part of palm kernel oil extraction plant called palm kernel oil solvent extraction, there is only less 1% oil content in the meal.
Palm kernel cake solvent extraction plant comsists of four processes:
