A new system for continuous sterilization of oil palm fresh fruit bunches

Author(s): KANDIAH, Sivasothy ; ROHAYA Mohd Halim ; YUSOF Basiron

A system is proposed for continuous sterilization of oil palm fresh fruit bunches based on crushing bunches to facilitate steam penetration into bunches and subsequently heating the bunches using live steam at atmospheric pressure to an extent sufficient to facilitate stripping of the fruits. An attempt is made to evaluate this system using a pilot-scale set-up.
