The palm oil processing process is a complicated process, which involves a series of steps: raw material reception, sterilizing, threshing, digesting, pressing, clarifying & drying. The processing machine used in oil palm mill plant have subtle difference depending on the different processing capacity. Next, let me, a veteran, introduce to you the palm oil processing process and the processing machine used in oil palm mill plant.

The introduction of the palm oil processing process:
Step 1 Raw material reception
Collecting the ripe fresh oil palm fruit bunches from the plantation and transported by trucks, then pour the FFB into the loading ramp after weighed by weighbridge.
Step 2 Sterilizing
The palm bunches are fed through a screw conveyor into the sterilizer where they are steamed at high temperature to break the enzymes in fruit, and to avoid the increasing of the FFA content ofoil. On the other hand, the high temperature makes the fruit soften, it is easy for threshing.
Step 3 Threshing
After sterilizing, the prepared palm fruit bunches will be sent into the drum type thresher. It can easily separate the fruit and the bunches during rotating process.
Step 4 Digesting
In digesting process, the palm pulp and nut will be separated, and the palm fruit will be crushed, even be destroyed its tissue.
Step 5 Pressing
After digesting, the palm fruit is pressed in the palm oil double screw press. It can yields two components: a mixture of oil, water and solid impurities and a press cake (a mixture of fibre and kernels).
Step 6 Clarifying & drying
The clarification equipment separates the crude palm oil from the mixture of oil, water and solid impurities and removes other impurities. After clarification, use oil drying system to dry the crude palm oil and pumped it into storage tanks.

The processing machine used in oil palm mill plant
Depend on the daily processing capacity of your plant, the processing machine used in oil palm mill plant have subtle difference. If your daily capacity is small, Henan Glory Company engineer suggest that you can choose a simple thresher, single screw palm oil presser and a frame filter to make up a simple palm oil production line. These equipment is sufficient to meet the daily production needs of the oil palm mill plant.
But if your daily capacity is between 10-120 tons/hour or even larger, our engineer suggest that you should choose a complete set of palm oil processing machine. It including sterilizer, drum type thresher, digester, palm oil presser, clarification equipment (rotary vibrating screen, clarification tank , plate filter) and vacuum drying system. Of course, if want to get a higher quality palm oil, you can equip it with refining equipment and carry out deep processing to further enhance the quality and market value of the palm oil.
