Now more and more clients have realized the value of palm kernel oil processing business. They intend to expand their business by setting up a palm kernel oil refinery plant in order to increase their profit but they have limited knowledge on how to set up a plant, how to refine palm kernel oil. In order to solve their confusions, today I will give you a brief introduction.
How to set up a palm kernel oil refinery plant?
In general, setting up a palm kernel oil refinery plant, you need to consider these aspects: related market research, workshop building, government certification approve, fund source and equipment supplier.
Firstly, you need to do some related market research, like how to get your raw material CPKO and where to sell your final product oil.
Secondly, you need to find existing workshop or new land to build workshop for the palm kernel oil refinery plant project.
Except for the raw material and land, you also need to check what kind of permissions or certificates you need to apply from government for setting up the palm kernel oil refinery plant.
Then it is about budget and source of funds, for starting the palm kernel oil refinery plant.
After considering about all the above, the most important is you need to find the suitable supplier who can offer good quality palm kernel oil refinery machine and professional technology service, and after-sales service.

Once we successfully built the palm kernel oil refinery plant, the next thing we need to care about is how to refine crude palm kernel oil. To make the vegetable oil clean and pure and improves the overall quality of the oil.
How to refine palm kernel oil?
After palm kernel oil extraction process, we can get crude palm kernel oil. But there are still some impurities in crude palm kernel oil. If you want to make the vegetable oil clean and pure and improves the overall quality of the oil, the palm kernel oil refining machine will be needed. In order to get high quality refined vegetable oil, we need to through four steps, they are: degumming, deacidification, decolorization/bleaching and deodorization.
The first step, we need to remove the gums in crude palm kernel oil by adding the hot water and then settling a few hours.
The second step, we need to use alkali like (NaOH) to neutralize FFA in the crude palm kernel oil, during this oil refining process, it will produce soapstock, then we can separate it from the oil and use it to make soap.
The third step, in order to lighten the oil color, we need to use the white clay to absorb the pigment away, then use vibrating filter to separate the waste clay.
The fourth step, the crude palm kernel oil itself has some unpleasant odors, as well as other odors that produced in palm kernel oil refining process. For these, we usually use the direct steam to take odors away. After that, the final palm kernel oil will be refined once again through safety filter and then pump into oil storage tank for sale.
Through the above steps, you will get high quality RBD palm kernel oil that can directly sale for more profit.
