How the palm nut and palm kernel shell is separated?
Palm kernels are part of the palm fruit and contain 50-55% oil in the kernel. If you want to get palm kernels, you need to crack palm nuts and separate the shells and kernels. Henan Glory developed a palm nut cracking and separating system. It can reach 95-98% cracking rate and 98% separation rate.

The palm nut cracking and separating system includes magnetic separator, cracker, wind separator, cyclone dust collector, centrifugal fan and three bucket elevators. Here, we will specifically introduce how the palm nut and palm kernel shell is separated for you.
Palm nut cracking and separating system
The palm nuts get in the bucket elevator first. The magnetic separator can help you absorb iron blocks, coins and other impurity in the raw materials, so that the cracker can reduce the working pressure.
The clean palm nuts enter the cracker, you can adjust the spacing of the tooth plates according to the size of the palm nuts to achieve the best shelling effect.
The shells and palm kernels after peeling enter cyclone, the wind will help to separate the shells and the kernels by the difference specific gravity. The shells are lighter, they will be sucked away by the wind, and the kernels are heavier that will fall naturally, thus achieving the effect of separation of the kernel and the nucleus. Then you can get clean palm kernels.
What is more, aftering separating palm nut and palm kernel shell, the next step is palm kernel oil pressing section and filtering machine. Then crude palm kernel oil can be obtained. Our company is more than 10 years edible oil machine manufacturer and can provide full set of palm kernel oil processing machine, such as palm kernel oil press machine, plate filter and palm nut cracking and separating system.
