Palm kernel is an important kind of by-product from palm oil extraction plants. About 45%~48% of palm nut is kernel. The kernels contain about 47%~50% by weight of oil. Palm kernel oil is quite different from palm oil in both characteristics and properties. However, it is more similar to coconut oil.

The palm kernel is the inner nut / seed obtained from the palm fruit. The palm kernel oil is mainly derived and recovered from the innermost kernel of the oil palm fruit by pressing technology. The palm kernel seeds are hard, tough and very intact. They contain around 35% to 45% of oil in them which is quite considerable.

There are diverse applications for the usage pattern of the palm kernel oil. It is not restricted just for edible food purposes. But the oil can also be utilized for various range of industries. We manufacture and offer the palm oil extraction plants in the world.

Our machines are being used in multiple palm growing countries. They are designed with the perfection to maximize the overall pressing efficiency. With the double stage pressing system design, the oil loss in final cake can be reduced.

Two main products obtained after crushing of palm kernels is:-

  1. Palm Kernel Oil: – Often regarded as PKO.
  2. Palm Kernel Cake: – Often regarded as PKC.

The palm kernel cake can be used as high-protein feed for dairy cattle. The palm shells are burned in the boilers to generate the steam for seed conditioning.

Function To Crush the Palm Kernel Seeds to get Palm Kernel Oil and Palm Kernel Cake

Input for Machine: – Dry Palm Kernel Seeds
Output from the Machine: – Filtered Palm Kernel Oil (PKO)

The kernels are steam conditioned for expeller process. They slowly fall into the expeller chamber through the inlet hoper. The crushing of seeds in between heavy duty hard faced steel will bring out the oil from the seeds which is collected at the bottom tank of the expeller. The crude oil is pumped to remove the impurities and dirt.

The final output is the clear palm kernel oil. TINYTECH Palm Kernel Machinery is working successfully in various different countries of the world.
