Palm Oil Industry
Today, raw palm oil is considered as one of the primary vegetable oil sources in the world. Although, plantation of palm trees for producing palm oil was initially commenced in Africa, today, the highest rate of palm oil production is carried out in Southeast Asia region. Other than Southeast Asia region, countries on the Ecuador zone such as Colombia, Costa Rica, Nigeria are among other countries which produce palm oil in the world.

In the recent years, a significant part of the increased oil demand in vegetable oil and biodiesel industries is being satisfied by palm oil.


Process
Fresh palm fruit bunches (FFB) delivered to the plant are firstly taken to the sterilizer. Steam at 130 degrees temperature is administered to the palm fruit for a period of nearly 45 minutes. Upon completion of the sterilization process the fresh palm fruit bunches are transferred to the thresher to separate the palm fruit from the stalk. Palm fruit separated from its stalk in the thresher is taken to the large cylindrical tanks called "digester" and then delivered from the bottom of these tanks to large presses for pressing process. Raw palm oil is obtained upon the pressing process carried out. This oil is then stored in cylindrical tanks and ran through vibratory sifting equipment and then collected in the tanks located in the subsequent stage. Raw palm oil is transferred to sand arrester equipment for removal of the sand content and then fed to 3-phase decanter directly and raw palm oil is separated into oil, water and solid phases through decanter centrifuges. Oil obtained upon decanter is delivered to vacuum dryer for complete elimination of the small water content. Oil obtained upon vacuum dryer is taken to the storage tanks.

Decanter centrifuges are preferred in palm oil process due to their compatibility with full automation, high performance, minimum space requirement and ease of operation.

"Before the machines are unloaded from the vehicle or the container, the general control must be made, and the machines condition must be recorded with photographs or video if possible. The date, time and location of the damage should be noted. As soon as the damage is detected, a report must be signed by the driver of the vehicle, the number of damaged containers must be indicated on the CMR convention and the signature of the carrier must be taken. CMR insurance will then be activated. In case of shipment damages, the damage report prepared with the logistics company should be directed to HAUS, meanwhile, the relevant insurance expert should be informed immediately and act according to the expert's instructions. It should not be forgotten that you may have to pay material damages due to transactions that are not done correctly on time. For more detailed information, you can request assistance from the relevant HAUS Sales department or After Sales Services department."
Centrifuge machines are high speed, therefore their maintenance and controls should be done on time. Planned maintenance activities extend the working life of the machines, ensure the continuity of your process and prevent unforeseen breakdown that may occur in the future due to usage error or normal use. For this reason, we recommend you to make a planned maintenance agreement. If you submit your request, our After Sales Services department will contact you for the most appropriate maintenance agreement for your process and needs.
It is recommended that you contact HAUS for such needs. To avoid any possible problems, your existing system is analyzed by HAUS Sales and Project teams and if necessary, needed changes are made and adapted to your system.
