The Making Process of Virgin Coconut Oil
Virgin coconut oil can be extracted directly from the fresh Coconut Meat or from Desiccated Coconut. The actual process involved in turning a coconut fruit into coconut oil begins with the selection of mature coconut kernels. The coconut kernels are then dried to the perfect moisture content to ensure long-shelf life. Coconut Kernels are first disintegrated into small pieces(known as desiccated coconut) in a Disintegrator and then fed into a virgin oil expeller for extraction. Expelled Oil is again filtered to remove the adhering fine particles. Under small scale, the oil is filtered through plate & frame type filter press and for large-scale operation, a pressure leaf filter with plate & frame type filter press is recommended to increase the filtration rate.
The Making Process of Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is extracted from copra. Copra can be obtained by separating coconut flesh from whole coconut shell, followed by sun drying for about 6 to 8 days. The copra is cut into small sizes by copra cutter and cooked by heating the small pieces of copra in a cooker for about 30 mins. Oil is squeezed from the cooked copra by an coconut oil extraction machine and then filtered by a filter press.
The oil expeller is essentially a mechanical screw press in which the oil is expelled from the copra by the pressure exerted by a continuous rotating warm shaft in the barrel or cage of the press. The barrel is built with openings to allow the escape of oil and these can be adjusted according to the type of seed being crushed.
