This equipment serves the purpose of extracting coconut milk using screw press technology. The machine is very user-friendly, reliable and robust and requires low power and labour.The rotational speed is very moderate ensuring a noise free and positive working environment. All contact parts of the machine are SS304 which is resistant to corrosion and food safe. The byproduct which is the dessicated coconut powder can be used as an ingredient in food and bakery products and has a commercial value.
Separation takes place inside a cylindrical drum surrounded by a mesh to filter any residual coconut gratings. The screw conveyer is fixed at both sides by strong bearings inside the drum. Coconut gratings are dropped at the feed hopper which is transported by the screw conveyer to the other sided of the drum squeezing the gratings during the process. The separated coconut milk will fall through the mesh and will be collected at the collecting pan. The residual sludge will be collected at the opposite side of the drum.
