TINYTECH Mechanical Screw Press
Tinytech’s Mechanical Screw Press is a manual press 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.
The main target country is India, but the Mechanical Screw Press can be exported to 111 countries throughout the world.
The market price for the Mechanical Screw Press price is USD 1250 but if purchased in bulk can be obtained for USD 1000.
The mechanical screw press is open-source technology, with similar products being used by oil extractors all over the world.
Goal 8: promote sustainable economic growth and productive employment.

Pounded palm fruits are filled up into the perforated cylindrical cage which is put under the mechanical screw press and 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 liberated 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. This palm oil is traditionally used as cooking oil.
