Coconut Oil Industry
VCO (Virgin Coconut Oil) is being used in many different sectors today such as food, cosmetics and pharmaceutics due to its benefits for human health. Since Virgin Coconut Oil contains medium chain oils it cannot be stored in human body and transformation of this oil into energy takes less time than other vegetable oils. Therefore, coconut oil is also referred to as diet oil. Coconut oil is extracting by pressing the white pulpy section inside the fresh coconut fruit. Since mechanical separation is carried out throughout the entire process with no addition of any chemical substance it is a very valuable and healthy oil. Since coconut tree is suitable for cultivation in the Ecuador zone climate, coconut oil manufacturers in the world are mainly Southeast Asian counties again located on the Ecuador zone and certain African and South American countries.


Process
Coconut fruit which is delivered to the plant upon being husked is firstly taken to the washing units. Processed through two separate washing units, coconut fruit is run through a mechanical rotary dryer unit and transferred to the breaking unit for breaking process. Broken into smaller pieces by the breaking unit, coconut fruit is then delivered to the pressing unit. Coconut milk is obtained upon pressing the fruit in the pressing unit. Although, this product looks like milk it has an oil content of 25-35%. Coconut oil extracted from the pressing unit is ran through vibratory screens to remove the sediments and taken to the storage tanks. Collected in storage tanks, the product is delivered to 3-stage separation process. Coconut milk is run through separators at the first, second and third stages continuously to obtain a clean and clear oil. The obtained oil is filtered through a simple filter at the final stage and delivered to vacuum drier to obtain the final product.
