Oil Press Technology from Fresh Coconut

Coconut meat contains up to 33% oil. For thousands of years, the traditional method of extracting oil is quite simple: crush the copra into chips and boiled in water, the oil will separate and float on the surface of the water, then pull out the oil. Nutrients of coconut oil processed by this method will be destroyed at high temperatures. Another method is to squeeze the coconut milk from the copra chips and then ferment it naturally for 24-36 hours, so that the oil is separated from the water, then the oil is removed and heated for a short time to remove the water. . This medium temperature heating method does not damage coconut oil, but the processing takes a long time.

There are also a variety of methods for extracting coconut oil. The coconut oil obtained by different methods differs in appearance, quality, taste and aroma. But in general, it can be divided into two major types of methods: one is hot press, firstly to make the coconut into the copra, and after crushing, the coconut oil is obtained by screw pressing. The screw press process generates heat due to friction during the pressing process, and some of the nutrients of the coconut oil is lost, which limits the use of subsequent refining.

The other method is cold press to make virgin & pure coconut oil without chemically treated at room temperature. The cold pressed coconut oil is mostly extracted from fresh coconut. The production process uses a hydraulic extraction method. Because the fatty acid is not destroyed during processing, the original nutrients are more completely preserved. The liquid of this oil is as clear as water and is white after curing. Because it has not been treated with high temperature and chemical substances, this oil retains the original ingredients and has the special smell and taste of coconut. It can be widely used in food processing, cosmetic and skin care processing, pharmaceutical processing and other industries.


Features of Hydraulic Coconut Oil Press

● Hydraulic oil press can press the coconut oil at room temperature. The nutrition of coconut oil would not be destroyed and original flavor could be preserved.

● Cold coconut oil press is composed of hydraulic cylinder, pressing barrel etc. Cold pressed coconut oil has high quality, good smell, and high yield rate.

● Press force of the hydraulic cold oil press could reach to 380 tons. Under that force, coconut oil will be pressed out while zero temperature rise on oil and oil cake.

● The oil press can operation automatically and manually. There are two barrels on this oil press. When one is under pressure automatically, the operator can fill the other barrel with oil material. That would promote the processing efficiency.

SIMEC has advanced coconut oil hydraulic cold pressing technology, can provide a variety of models to meet your different production needs. If you are interested in the hydraulic oil cold press, please contact info@simecoilpress.com for a quotation.
