Coconuts are mainly grown in tropical regions, and coconut oil is becoming more and more popular. Regarding coconut oil for plants, since coconuts with different maturity levels in different periods contain different moisture and other substances, they need to be treated differently when processing them. At the same time, it is necessary to choose a suitable coconut oil extraction process according to customer needs. Next, let me introduce the coconut oil extraction process to you.
For coconut oil, the cold pressing process is generally used, and it is divided into virgin pressing, secondary pressing and refining according to different quality requirements.
1. Shelling coconut
Since coconut nutrients are mainly concentrated in the coconut kernel, it is necessary to remove the coconut coat before processing. This requires drying, dehydration and shelling.
2. Broken copra
When we get dried coconut, which is the raw material we want to process into coconut oil, since dried coconut is usually a large solid block, it needs to be broken,
3. Rolling coconut
The crushed dried coconut enters the rolling machine through the conveyor, and pressing it into flakes is beneficial to the subsequent work efficiency and oil yield.
4. Low temperature pressing coconut oil
The dried coconut after flaking is pressed by coconut oil production machine at low temperature, and the crude oil extracted is directly cold-filtered and left to stand to obtain virgin coconut oil.
5. Refining coconut oil
If use the coconut oil refining equipment, then the coconut oil at this time is refined coconut oil. In addition, the dried coconut is sour due to the wrong storage or picking time of the coconut, so equipment such as deacidification and decolorization is needed.
After the above series of coconut oil extraction process, we can process dried coconut into coconut oil. Our company specializes in the production of coconut oil processing machine and other equipment. You are welcome to get in touch with us and tell us your requirement on coconut oil mill.
