How many tons palm fruit are needed to produce 1 ton of palm oil?
Based on the oil content rate of palm fruit bunches and the residual oil rate of oil presser, to produce 1 ton of palm oil at least needs 5 tons of palm fruit bunches, or 3.25 tons of fresh palm fruits. If you want to calculate by yourself how many tons palm fruit are needed to produce palm oil in your factory, you can see the picture below, which shows the oil content rate of each part of palm fruit bunches.
The oil content of palm fruits
According to the oil content rate of each part of palm fruit bunches and your oil presser's residual oil rate, you can calculate the palm oil production or required the amount of fresh palm fruit bunches.
However, this is only a theoretical calculation method. Actually, the oil yield of palm oil can also be influenced by many other factors, such as the variety of oil palm fruit, oil content of oil palm fruit, the palm oil extraction technology and the degree of automation. Next, Henan Glory will introduce them in details for you.
1. Choose high oil content variety of oil palm fruit and carefully cultivate oil palm trees
The oil content of oil palm fruit not only depends on the variety of oil palm fruit tree, but also is influenced by the type of soil you plant on, used fertilizer, water consumption and weather conditions.
The only straightforward way to calculate the ratio of oil palm fruit lets to extracted oil is called “oil extraction rate”, or simply OER. So far, Ii have seen the highest OER of 25%, which means from a 1kg of palm fruits, you can get 250g of crude palm oil.
If your soil is mineral soil, then probability of you having higher OER is there. Your oil palm trees will be tall and easy to harvest. But if it is a peat land, then you must be very careful and precise on water levels and fertilizer. Oil palm trees will not be straight and tall, giving you loss of fruit lets and difficulty of harvesting. Also, your OER rate will vary in different seasons. Again, weather conditions, fertilizer and water levels affected on OER rates, very significantly.
2. Choose high degree of automation palm oil processing technology
The higher degree of automation palm oil processing technology configuration, the better quality the palm oil you get and the higher the oil extraction rate is.
DOING HOLDINGS--Henan Glory Company has different kinds of palm oil processing machine which you can choose, including single and double screw palm oil presser, 1-5tph small palm oil processing line, medium and large scale palm oil production line. Besides, there are also small medium and large scale palm kernel processing line, palm kernel cracker and separator system, special used palm kernel oil presser, etc. (Learn more: List of palm oil and palm kernel oil processing machine)
1-5tph palm oil processing line
Among them, the small 1-5tph palm oil processing line and small palm kernel oil processing line are very popular among our customers in Africa. Using small production line can improve the production and efficiency a lot, and the price of them is affordable for new starters.
