As we all know, oil palm can produce two distinct oils - palm oil extracted from fresh fruit and palm kernel oil obtained from the nuts. Both palm oil and palm kernel oil are widely used in various industries, including food, chemical and others. Compare to palm oil, the production of palm kernel oil requires less complicated technology and more simple equipment. Therefore, even though you don’t have too much money or you are far away from the oil palm plantation site, you can still start your own palm kernel oil production business. In order to ensure smooth palm kernel oil production, there are several things that you must make it clear, the palm kernel oil processing steps and the basic elements involving in palm oil mill project.

Palm kernel oil production process involves a series of steps:
First, get palm kernel clean. Palm kernel should be cleaned through certain cleaning equipment or just by manual. Since the impurities may contain stones, sands, iron impurities, metallic debris and more, it is better to use cleaning machine or sieving machine to remove all these impurities to better protect the Palm Kernel Oil Expeller Press.
Second, crush palm kernel. Original palm kernel is better crushed into small size by professional crushing machines for easy processing.
Third, separate kernel and nut shell. There are two ways of separation, wet and dry. Fourth, press palm kernel. Before pressing, the palm kernel should be cooked or heated for higher quality oil and cake. Then, the pre-treated raw material is feed into expeller press.
Last, refine and get pure palm kernel oil. Pressed crude palm kernel oil should be refined through palm kernel oil refinery machine to get pure and edible oil.
