The Steps Involved in Processing Palm Oil
There are five major steps when processing the palm fruit bunch to its final product – the red palm oil. These steps are listed below accordingly:
First, the palm fruits go through a process known as sterilizing.This process can be done by either boiling/steaming which should be done before threshing process.
Next, the palm fruits go through a process known as threshing, in which each piece of fruit is separated from the rest of the bunch. Large palm oil mill plant place the palm fruit bunches in rotary drums to complete this process, while small palm oil production facilities perform threshing by hand.
After threshing, the next step in palm oil production involves pressing the fruit to separate the oil from the skin and pulp. Some facilities place the fruit into large rotating drums, which start to break down the fruit and release some of the oil. This is followed by pressing, wherein heavy metal plates are mechanically pressed into the fruit to squeeze out the oil. Palm oil press machine may use hydraulic or pneumatic power to process large batches at once. The oil is then diluted with water and filtered through a screen to help remove debris and impurities.
The final step is storage of the palm oil: After the whole work is done, they are stored in gallons or barrels, to be transported later to the market or for buying customers to come and pick up, as palm oil is often sold on-demand.
