The relevant equipment details are shown in the table below:

Device Name Device Details
Crus​hing machine Copra is large, strong, and tough, unlike soybeans that break easily when moisture is low. Therefore, the coconut oil processing plant needs a hammer crusher, and secondary crushing is recommended to increase the output.
Rolling caldron fry seed machine Through the continuous rolling of the sealed cylinder, the raw materials are heated evenly and the heat dissipation is less; after roasting, the oil yield can be greatly improved.
Screw oil press machine The screw oil press squeezes out the oil in the copra through mechanical extrusion. The screw oil press machine independently developed by ABC Machinery has wide adaptability, high output and stable performance.
Plate frame oil filter The plate frame oil filter is mainly composed of filter frame, filter plate and filter cloth. It is mainly used to remove solid suspended impurities in crude oil.

Of course, in addition to the equipment configuration of the small coconut oil production line provided above, ABC machinery can also be based on your processing capacity, investment budget, processing technology and grade requirements for finished coconut oil, providing you with a variety of coconut oil production line equipment configuration solutions to achieve your diversified production needs.In addition, with the help of some conveying equipment, such as bucket elevators and screw conveyors, the purpose of material conveying can be achieved to speed up the production efficiency and automation of the factory.(Project Report:Copra Oil Expeller Machine and Filter Machine to Thailand>>)
