MINI PALM OIL MILLS
In partnership with companies in
Malaysia, we offer a range of micro/mini-mills with processing capacities from 500 kg
ffb/hr up to 5 tonnes ffb/hr.
These small mills, which are specially designed for West African conditions, feature a combination of imported special purpose
machinery from Malaysia, matched with local inputs such as buildings, steelworks, structures, tanks, vessels,
This will deliver micro/mini palm oil mills of superior quality, high processing efficiency, reliability, and durability
equal to any large commercial palm oil mill.
All this at a cost attractive to village organisations, smaller plantation owners, state and local governments, aid agencies,
NGO’s, community development projects, etc.
500 kg ffb/hr mini oil palm mill (West Africa)
The basic plant comprises
manual cookers, beater arm type fruit bunch thresher, conventional rotary arm digestor, single worm screw press, and a static decanter to
separate oil from sludge.
Machinery is powered by a 50
kva diesel generator. Required inputs are fresh fruit bunches to process, firewood for fruit cookers, water for steam and dilution
purposes, and diesel for generator.
Options to be added soon
include a small hot water heater, various conveyors to reduce manual handling, and a vibrating filter to reduce solids entering the
decanter. Other machinery can be included to reduce or minimise labour requirements.
Single screw oil
High oil extraction is achieved by means of a single worm screw press driven by a 10 kW geared reduction
In keeping with the ideal of providing a low cost plant, utilising local labour, whilst still delivering high efficiency oil
extraction, these micro/mini mills utilise manual fruit cookers.
Main fruit processing
This photo shows the main line of a mini mill that has been totally enclosed to deter theft. Installation of machinery is
relatively simple as nearly all machinery bolts down directly onto the flat concrete floor.
There are many variations and capacity options available for this range of micro/mini mills. Designs and configurations are
available to meet exact needs of clients. Contact us for more
