Threshing/Stripping


Threshing station uses strong vibration to make separation of palm fruit from palm bunches. Raw materials after sterilization are sent to bucket elevator through damp car, and elevated into threshing machine. Palm fruit separates from bunches, sent to next section elevator through screw conveyor. Empty bunches through conveyor and charger, are transported to certain place for further treatment by car.

Palm fruit threshing station can vibrate palm fruit from palm bunches efficiently. It makes further preparation for next step palm fruit oil press processing.

After sterilization, raw materials are sent to bucket elevator through damp car, elevated and emptied into threshing machine. It is a further preparation for next step palm fruit oil press. Threshing station uses strong vibration to make separation of palm fruit from palm bunches efficiently.

Threshing is the process whereby bunch is thrown on the revolving beater shaft, due to the action of beater, entire bunch is thrown up and is allowed to fall again and again on the revolving beaters. Thus palm fruits are separated and fall down through the screen which are collected by the bottom conveyor and is taken out from the outlet. The fruits are separated from bunches in a rotating drum.

Thereafter the loose fruits are conveyed to a digester through screw conveyor. While the empty fruit bunches (EFB) are incinerated and the ash, a rich source of potassium, is returned to the plantation as fertilizer; or used as boiler fuel or further treatment.
