MacFibre is the largest supplier of palm products including palm fiber, palm pellet, palm shells, and palm pressed fibers. As we are talking about MacFibre’s palm products and their specifications, let’s move on to the another extracted product called palm pressed fibers.
Palm pressed fiber is produced as a result of extracting palm oil from the fruits of oil palm and contains rich organic matter. It is a fibrous by-product that comes out when the crude oil is isolated from the fruit with the help of the screw-press. It is very much more likely that palm pressed fiber is rich in residual palm oil as well.
Palm pressed fibers are the raw materials for palm fillets, palm pellet, palm fibre, and other underdeveloped products. Basically, it is the recovered fiber extracted from the pressed palm fruit. Uses of palm pressed fiber include the source of soil reinforcement due to the mineral richness. It is capable of combining with kernel shells and used as a biomass fuel generator due to the capacity of producing a large amount of heat. So, palm pressed fiber serves as a great potential source of energy. The biomass fuel is the main energy source for running the oil mill plants where it is further burned to generate electricity. As a result, a massive amount of diesel fuel is saved, which result in the cost-effective solution.
If we talk about the properties of palm pressed fiber, then the percentage of moisture in the fresh palm pressed fiber is between 48 and 52. Since this moisture is too high for transportation; it is reduced to 30% by drying.
MacBaler’s automatic palm fiber baler machine is specially designed to recycle and compress the loose palm pressed fiber and convert them into dense and tight bales. Due to the compact packing, the 40HQ container gets capable of loading approx. 22tons with a capacity of 48tons per day.
