Abstract


Energy conservation in the refining industry

The potential to save energy in the palm oil refining industry cannot be ignored. Possible savings of up to 30% of current fuel usage is achievable with successful energy program implementation. It is an objective worth achieving.

Abstract


Maintenance - Predictive maintenance in the palm oil industry : Part I

The current approach in automation of palm oil mills has one inherent weakness : the emphasis is more on process control than overall plant reliability. No matter how sophisticated the process control system adopted, mechanical failures of critical machines bring the plant to a standstill. Predictive maintenance can virtually eliminate unexpected breakdowns, i.e. increases reliability anc1 therefore productivity. Unexpected breakdowns are especially critical during peak months and downtime can result in substantial financial losses. In this series, the authors will discuss their experiences in the introduction of predictive maintenance in palm oil mills based on the Bruel and Kjaer range of equipment. Practical examples will be provided to illustrate various possible applications of predictive maintenance on palm oil mill machinery.

Abstract


Refining - Refining and fractionation of palm oil : Part III

In Parts I and II, the stages in chemical refining of palm oil were covered. Part III outlines the differences in process flow between chemical refining and the more common physical refining. This part also introduces another important process in the palm oil industry, i.e. fractionation of palm oil.

Abstract


Palm oil as a lubricant

We recently heard of tests which had been carried out jointly by Tsubakimoto Chain Company of Osaka, Japan and Syarikat Union Motor Supply, Kuala Lumpur (local agent for Tsubaki products) on the use of crude palm oil as a lubricant for chains. Although crude palm oil may have limited uses as a lubricant we are giving details fo these tests as they will be of interest to engineers.

Abstract


Instrumentation - Why are vortex flowmeters so popular

Manufacturers have marketed Vortex meters for more than eight years and today these meters are widely accepted for measuring steam flow, gas flow and flow of high viscosity liquids. The Vortex meter has good application in the palm oil process, particularly for measuring steam and water flow.

Abstract


Refining - Refining and fractionation of palm oil : Part II

The steps of phosphoric acid treatment for gum removal and neutralization for FFA reduction in chemical refining were described in Part One of the series. The oil still contains undesirable impurities, odours and color pigments that need to be removed before the finish product will be acceptable to the buyer. These remaining impurities are reduced to acceptable levels by the processes of bleaching and deodorisation.

Abstract


Maintenance - Planned preventive maintenance

In these days of depressed palm oil prices, it is essential that all engineers in the Palm Oil Industry ensure their operational costs are kept to a minimum. With this in mind, the engineers should examine thoroughly their responsibility in ensuring correct and efficient operation of all equipment under their control.
