Palm kernel oil has large value in the market, thus more and more people are interested in getting palm kernel oil. The first step to get palm kernel oil is to get palm kernel. To get palm kernel, we need a professional machine, as for what machine can be used for cracking palm nut and separating palm kernel shell, most people are confused. To let customer better know what machine can be used for cracking palm nut and separating palm kernel shell, I am glad to introduce to you some useful machines here.
Most of customers are familiar with traditional Malaysia technical palm nut separating method. First, the palm kernel nut is crushed by ripple mill, then get the mixture of palm kernel and shell. Then majorities of palm kernel are separated out through separating column system and then the rest parts use hydro-cyclone equipment to further separation, the kernel and shell separation rate can reach up 99%.
Above machine can crush palm nut and separate palm kernel shell with high efficiency and high separation rate. But the machine is suitable for large capacity(above 30 tons per hour) because of high equipment cost.
Although, the traditional Malaysia palm kernel shell separating machine is high efficiency and high separation rate, it is not economic for people who are interested in starting the palm kernel oil processing business with small capacity. Like Nigeria, the palm plantation is not as concentrated as in southeast Asia. So the local people want a smaller capacity machine to separate palm kernel shell from the nut.
To help small scale palm kernel oil processing business investors crush palm nut and separate palm kernel shell quickly, Our Company’s engineer special designed the 2-3t/h small scale palm kernel cracking and separating machine. This machine can crush palm nuts and separate palm kernel shell at one time. The working principle of palm kernel cracking and separating machine is as follows:
There are two steps from palm nut to get palm kernel: cracking firstly and separating then.
Firstly, we adopt professional palm kernel cracker to crack palm nuts, crushing rate is above 90%;
Secondly, after crushing the palm nut, we can get the mixture of palm kernel and shell. Because of the shell and kernel weight is very close, to separate them, we need to use air separator system. Usually , we need to control air speed and volume to separate palm kernel from shell. When the speed and air volume arrive the critical value, the palm kernel and shell can be separated, the separation rate can reach above 90%. Besides, our machine can ensure the kernel content in the shell is less than 5%.
Till now, our small scale palm kernel cracking and separating machines have exported to many countries, such as Nigeria, Liberia, Uganda, Ghana, Ivory coast, Sierra Leone, etc. All the users have a high opinion of the machine, if you also need one machine like this, welcome to contact us at any time.
