Product Description

The TinyTech Mechanical Screw Press is a manually operated press with a screw fixture that is used to expel oil from palm fruit and fiber mixtures. The press is made up of a screw that pushes a plate into a cylindrical, perforated cage. The applied pressure causes oil to ooze out and it is collected by the bottom tray. There are two perforated cages that carry out the operation simultaneously to save time and avoid wastage.

Design Specifications

The TinyTech Mechanical Screw Press has a perforated cylindrical cage in which the palm nuts can be fed. The mechanical screw press is operated by hand. By pressing the screw down, the pressure plate under the screw goes down into the perforated cylinder cage and presses the entire mass of palm fruits. Due to the pressure, palm oil is expelled through the small holes around the cylindrical surface. Oil is then collected into the utensils through the bottom tray. Two cylindrical perforated cages are provided with every press so that when one is under pressure, second cage is being filled up. Each cage can take about 40 to 50 kg of palm fruits per batch. About 25 to 30% palm oil is extracted.
