Palm nut is main byproduct of palm oil pressing. After cracking the palm nut, you can get palm kernel, which can be used to extract palm kernel oil. Palm kernel oil has more saturated fats than palm oil, so it is also very popular among consumers. Then how could we get palm kernel oil? What machines are needed to extract palm kernel oil into vegetable oil?
Palm kernel oil
Firstly, you need to confirm the raw material you got. Are they clean palm kernels, clean palm nuts without fibre or palm nuts wrapped with fibre? If they are palm nuts wrapped with fibre, the palm fibre separator machine would be required to remove the fibre. And then, a palm nut cracker and shell separating system would be needed to grade, crack the palm nut, and give you clean complete palm kernel by air separating.

With clean palm kernel, the palm kernel oil processing line can start.
Firstly, a palm kernel crusher would crush the kernels into small pieces.
Secondly, cooker would help heat the crushed kernel pieces for better pressing and raising up the oil yield rate. There are three types of cooker you can choose, burning biomass, nature gas-fuel, and electric. By the way, fiber and shell can be used as fuel of biomass type cooker.

Thirdly, palm kernel oil presser comes to extract oil out. There will be a material buffer tank, which controls palm kernels input capacity to avoid input blocking. Then pressed palm kernel oil will flow to oil clarification tank, natural settling to keep some impurities at bottom of the tank to get the clear oil.
Finally, a plate filter is needed to filtrate more thoroughly to get clean crude palm kernel finally.
Then, can the crude palm kernel oil be sold as vegetable oil? The answer is no. In the vegetable oil market, vegetable oil refers to refined palm kernel oil, which must be qualified the national standards. So if you want to get vegetable oil, a set of palm kernel oil refinery machine is required here. The small batch oil refinery machines are also one of our hot sale production.

How does the palm kernel oil refinery machine refine the crude palm kernel oil into vegetable oil? There are four steps for palm kernel refinery: Degumming, Deacidification, Decolorization and Deodorization. After refining, better flavor and tasty refined vegetable oil can be sold on your targeted market.
