Fibre Oil Extraction Plant (PFOE), as the name suggests
is a plant designed and equipped to extract the residual oil from
palm-pressed fibre by means of solvent. A food grade solvent known
as hexane is used to extract the remaining 5% - 6% of residual
crude palm oil (CPO) available in palm-pressed fibre, thereby
enhancing oil extraction rate (OER) by 0.6%.

Point of Oil Extracted
Robust, User Friendly and Flexible
proven PFOE plant design is simple, robust, user friendly and
flexible with inbuilt safety features. Such simplicity in operation
is attained with automation whereby synchronisation of multiple
processing steps and safety interlocking system in the extraction
plant are closely monitored and supervised.
and Low Solvent Consumption
is a highly volatile and inflammable solvent used in the extraction
process. Much of efforts and close attention to every single detail
have been focused on in the plant design for safety consideration.
Moreover, our specially designed mechanical seals on moving parts
ensure no leakages of the solvent. Cooling areas of vapour condensors
are also specially designed to achieve maximum condensation for
solvent recovery and minimum lost of solvent vapour through venting.
All these measures make the PFOE works with lowest solvent consumption.
synchronising of various processing steps coupled with the fact
that many heat saving devices are incorporated in a PFOE plant
ensures lowest steam and power consumptions per tonne of raw material
processed. With highest in-built capacity, lowest utility consumptions
of solvent, steam and power, lowest residual oil in deoiled meal,
PFOE plant is a sure way to success in this competitive world.
construction of each turnkey plant takes 6 - 9 months.
