  • Palm oil processing steps:

1. Palm oil press

B. Main palm oil processing machine
(1) Sterilizing tank —using high temperature steam to kill active enzyme and bacteria in order to avoid FFA increasing and improve quality of crude palm oil
(2) Threshing —using separator to separate palm fruit and bunches
(3) Crushing —crushing palm fruit before pressing
(4) Press— using pre-press machine to press palm fruit, finally to get crude palm oil and cake.

B. Main palm oil processing machine
(1) Degumming —- to remove gum and impurities from crude oil
(2) Deacidification—using alkali to neutralize acid inside crude oil
(3) Decoloration— using clay to bleach crude oil
(4) Deodorization– using deodorizing tower to remove odor from crude oil , then will get refined palm oil
(5) Fractionation– separate refined palm oil into olein and stearin
