Palm oil processing process
Collecting: The ripe fresh palm fruit bunches are collected and transported to raw material reception.
Sterilizing: Sterilizing is a process that injecting direct steam into the sterilizer to boil the palm fruit. It can break the enzymes in fruit and avoid the increasing of the FFA content of oil. On the other hand, the high temperature makes the fruit soften, it is easy for threshing.
Threshing: After sterilizing, the prepared palm fruit bunches will be sent to the drum type thresher, in which each piece of fruit is separated from the rest of the bunches.
Digesting: In digesting process, the palm pulp and nut will be separated, and the palm fruit will be crushed, even be destroyed its tissue.
Pressing: It can extract the palm oil from the palm pulp by pressing. After pressing, we can obtain crude palm oil containing impurities and water, and a mixture of fiber and palm nuts.

Clarifying & Drying: A mixture of oil, water, and solids from the bunch fibers is delivered to clarification station. It usually use vibrating screen, clarification tank and plate filter to remove the impurities from the crude palm oil, and use oil drying system to dry the crude palm oil.
Depending on the daily processing capacity of the plant, you will be provided with either a simple or a standard palm oil production line, and the palm oil processing machine required for the different scale production line will vary.
If your daily capacity is 500kg/hour, Henan Glory Company engineer recommend a simple palm oil production line with simple equipment, such as drum type thresher, single screw palm oil presser and a frame filter. If you are on a budget, you can replace the drum type thresher with a simple thresher, or you can simply thresh the fruit manually to reduce your investment costs.
Simple type palm oil processing machine
If your daily capacity is between 1-5 tons/hour, 10-120 tons/hour or even larger, our engineer recommend the standard palm oil production line for you, which is equipped with the following processing machine: sterilizer, drum type thresher, digester, palm oil presser, clarification equipment (rotary vibrating screen, clarification tank , plate filter) and vacuum drying system.
