The process of palm kernel oil extraction existed since early human civilization. In ancient times, palm oil extraction process merely involves the cleaning of palm kernels and grinded with the use of grinders or stone mills. In modern times, with the advancement of science and technology, screw presses and palm kernel expellers are introduced, which offer a much efficient solution in extracting palm oil. Today, oil expellers play a vital role in the palm oil industry in Malaysia.
As we all know, palm kernels contain some amount of oil in them, which can be extracted by crushing them. A palm kernel screw press is a mechanical machine that is used to extract palm oil by applying intense pressure to palm kernels. During earlier times, traditional methods of grinding were used as a method of palm oil extraction, but these methods did not produce as effective results as the modern oil expellers do.
MBL is a designer and manufacturer of oil seed expellers primarily for palm kernel oil. The oil seed expellers comprise primarily of pressing stations, coupling, gearbox, pulley and belt, and a motor.
The palm kernel oil expeller is designed with the main shaft directly driven by a coupling affixed to the gearbox. Thus, it has a simple structure by eliminating the extra gear set needed. This EK series design of palm kernel oil expeller reduces maintenance costs and time.
MBL are also manufacturers of automated oil seed expellers, better known as the EK (Automated) series. The automated oil seed expellers are designed to protect the gearbox from breaking or the main shaft or bearing from malfunctioning.
Thus, our palm kernel expellers are well known for being the most efficient and cost effective in the industry.
