Palm fruit oil production process

Palm Fruit Oil Production Process:

With the help of palm fruit oil production process and palm oil processing technology, palm oil can be extracted from fresh fruit bunches (FFB) by mechanical process.The palm fruit oil production process plays a important role in palm oil processing process . Here we will introduce the palm fruit oil production process step by step.

Sterilization

This first step in the palm fruit oil production process is crucial to the final palm oil quality as well as the strippability of fruits. Sterilization inactivates the lipases in the fruits, and prevents build-up of free fatty acids (FFA).

Stripping

Stripping, which is also called threshing, involves separating the sterilized fruits from the bunch stalks. Sterilized FFBs are fed into a drum stripper and the drum is rotated, causing the fruits to be detached from the bunch.

Digestion and Pressing

After stripping, the fruits are moved into a digester. The fruits are reheated to loosen the pericarp in this palm fruit oil production process. The steam heated vessels have rotating shafts to which are attached stirring arms.

Clarification

The water, solids from the bunch fibres is mixed with oil. In the palm fruit oil production process, the oil is separated from the rest of the liquor by centrifugal.
