Pam kernel oil pressing is different from palm fruit oil pressing processing line. Palm kernel oil contains lauric acid (C 12) with high saturation of 80%. Traditional palm oil indicates crude palm oil (CPO) pressed from palm fruit, and refined palm oil (RPO), not includes palm kernel oil.
Palm kernel oil pressing production line introduction:
● Palm kernel crushing. Crush palm kernels after softening and drying. The centrifugal crusher breaks nuts and separate palm kernel out completely.
● Palm kernel and nuts shell separation. Both dry and wet separations are available. Wet separation is mostly used in palm kernel separation, on basis of difference of relative density of palm kernel and shell.
● Palm kernel drying. Fresh kernel contains 20% moisture. Palm kernel has no mildew during transportation and storage while moisture drops below 7%.
● Palm kernel oil pressing. Palm kernel oil pressing processing line is simple with usual oilseeds. The pre-pressing by oil pressing machine can obtain 1/4 palm kernel oil, and residual oil need twice pressing.
