TINY PALM OIL MILL WITH INDEPENDENT STEAM POWER
Process in brief is as under :-
(1) Palm fruits bunches are sterilized traditionally by feeding in drums with water and by burning palm waste underneath so that steam produced will sterilize all palm fruits. This system has been upgraded by scientific steam pressurized sterilizer.
(2) Sterilized palm fruits bunches are emptied into a big hopper of palm fruit stripper and fed to stripper machine where palm fruits will be separated out by jumping the bunches and falling down and will be collected at bottom conveyor. About two tonnes of palm bunches will be processed and fruits will be separated and empties will come out from the discharge chute at the opposite end which will be excellent fuel for boiler after drying under the sun.
(3) This palm fruits will be fed to the digester kettle with steam jacket at the bottom. Feeding is automatic by palm fruits conveyor of 6 mt long which will feed palm fruits to Digester kettle which is mounted on the expeller and is driven by chain and sprockets from palm expeller shaft.
(4) In digester kettle, palm fruits will be vigourously cooked and then will be fed to Palm oil expeller just by gravity where crude palm oil will be extracted. Palm oil will be collected in the bottom tank and mixture of whole palm nuts and fibers will be discharged from the side of expeller.
(5) Palm nuts will be separated in a very simple machine Nut Fiber Separator. It is inclined cylinder of wire netting screen from which fibers will pass through and nuts will be collected at lower end of cylinder. Cylinder will revolve by 1 HP motor. Fibers will be again excellent fuel for boiler. Palm nuts can be sold out in the market.
(6) One steam engine of 20 hp will drive oil expeller and digester kettle. Another steam engine of 10 HP will drive palm fruits stripper. Third steam engine of 20 HP will drive generator for electricity for use for lighting, water pumping, for nut fiber separator etc etc. Capacity of the generator is far bigger than required. All the 3 steam engines will get the steam from one common boiler of 1 ton per hour capacity.
(7) You will not require outside electricity or diesel. So you will be completely independent from power problem. So you can run your mill round the clock and get full production without stop. Let prices of diesel and electricity increase 100 times, you are not affected at all.
(8) Factory shed requirement is 60 ft x 40 ft X 24 ft height. (18 mt x 12 mt x 7.5 mt )
(9) Power requirement NIL, NIL, NIL,
(10) Total cost of the plant is US$36500/- FOB cost. Electricity operated plant cost US$22000/-. If you can sterilize palm bunches traditionally in asphalt drums etc, Total plant cost will further reduce to US$ 19000/-
