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 equipments involving in palm kernel oil production process.
Palm kernel oil production line involves a series of processing steps.
Palm kernel oil pre-press section:
Palm kernel after cleaning, crushing, softening, flaking, cooking will be pre-pressed, which is not necessary to press as much oil as we can because pressed cake will be extracted.

Palm kernel oil extraction section:
Palm kernel oil extraction is using solvent to extract oil from palm kernel cake, finally oil residue inside meal is less than 1%. And dry meal is better than cake for animal feed. So palm kernel oil extraction plant is becoming more and more important for palm kernel oil production process.
