As we all know, mature palm fruit bunches collected from palm orchards cannot be directly processed as raw materials for palm oil processing. Otherwise, on the one hand, it may cause damage to the palm oil pressing machine and affect the processing progress; on the other hand, it may absorb palm oil and reduce the oil yield. Therefore, it is necessary to use palm fruit sterilizer to process palm fruit bunches to get the palm fruit. Then how does it work?

Generally speaking, the palm fruit sterilizer uses 0.35MPa steam to cook the palm fruit at a high temperature. The palm fruit sterilizer softens the pulp structure of the oil palm fruit bunch, making the pulp tissue easier to separate from the fiber and core during the mashing process. The high-temperature steam is sufficient to break the oil-containing cells in the pulp, so that the oil is easy to flow out. At the same time, the palm fruit sterilizer breaks the enzymes in fruit and avoids the increasing of the FFA content oil, which prevents hydrolysis and oil oxidation.


In addition to the palm fruit sterilizer, the other palm oil processing machines used in palm oil production process are as follows: thresher, digester, double screw palm oil expeller, vibrating screen, plate filter, etc.
