How to separate palm fruit and palm fruit bunch?

September 15, 2021

As we all know, palm oil is extracted from palm fruit bunches (FFB), but FFB cannot directly enter the palm oil press for squeezing. Before entering the oil press, we need to simply process the palm fruit bunch to separate the individual palm fruit from the palm fruit bunch. So how can we efficiently separate palm fruit bunches? This is a problem that plagues many customers. Today we will show you how to separate palm fruit.

Common methods for separating palm fruit

At present, there are two methods for separating palm fruit bunches in Africa. The traditional method for separating palm fruit bunches is to manually break the whole palm fruit bunch into several parts, and then manually separate the palm fruits one by one. The specific scene is as follows , This was taken a few years ago when the engineers of our palm oil production equipment were on site in Nigeria.

However, with the development of the African economy, more and more people realize that manual separation of palm fruit bunches is inefficient, and it takes up more labor and time. Therefore, they began to look for a new equipment that can replace labor. And can quickly separate palm fruit equipment. After a period of understanding, more and more customers have found Henan Zhongxing Grain and Oil Machinery Co., Ltd.

Henan Zhongxing Grain and Oil Machinery is a leading supplier and manufacturer of gold medals in the field of palm oil processing. We can provide customers with various processing capacity palm threshing machines and a complete set of palm oil production equipment and palm oil refining equipment. If you are looking for a palm threshing machine, Henan Zhongxing Grain and Oil Machinery will be a good choice. We can supply 2 different types of palm threshing machines to meet the needs of different users.

The first is a drum-type palm threshing machine. This kind of threshing machine has a long horizontal drum inside. By rotating the drum, the palm fruit and the empty fruit bunch can be separated. The minimum processing capacity of this drum-type palm threshing machine is 1 ton/hour. If it is smaller, the FFB will not have enough space to rotate, and the threshing effect will not be good. Under normal circumstances, this kind of drum-type palm threshing machine is mostly used in large-scale palm squeezing plants, especially large plants like 30 tons, 45 tons, 60 tons, 80 tons, and 120 tons.

The second type is a simple palm threshing machine. If your processing capacity is less than 1 ton per hour, this palm threshing machine will be a good choice. The palm threshing machine is designed by our palm oil crushing engineer according to the specific characteristics of Africa. It has the characteristics of simple operation and low cost. If you want to start a palm oil processing business, but the budget is small. This kind of palm threshing machine is worth starting.


As you have already learned, there are currently three ways to separate palm fruit from palm fruit bunches in the palm oil production process. Each has its own characteristics. You can make a corresponding choice according to your actual situation and start your palm oil processing business.
