New Technological Innovation to


Drive Efficiency, Creativity and Profitability at Palm Oil Mills

The Dream Mill

Can life for palm oil mill Managers and


Engineers be (ever) made easy?
Actually, yes. With a solution that is both
easy and simple. Just picture this
managers and engineers focusing on mill
processes and production matters rather
than tending to persistent mill utility
issues, thereby enriching their daily
working life and enhancing the core

business of their company.


Today, technological innovation has given a boost to palm oil mill operations.
New technologies are available to re-engineer the design of existing palm oil
extraction processes to achieve the above.
With The Dream Mill, mill managers and engineers can spend valuable time (a
key scarce resource) focusing on mill processes and production:
Optimal process parameters
Extraction efficiencies
Product qualities
Product losses
Process energy efficiencies
Production scheduling
Instead of re ghting mill utility issues:
Inadequate process steam
Inadequate steriliser capacities
Inability of turbine to cope with process steam demand
Non-compliance with regulatory boiler stack emission limits
Lack of boiler fuel
The current and prevalent crude palm oil extraction process in a palm oil mill as
originally expounded in the Mongana Report (Congo Palm, 1955) is given a new
lease of life via a fresh look at engineering operations and practices.
New innovative technologies are incorporated to surpass the performance levels
of certain original processes. The source of long-standing mill headaches can be
traced to unwieldy and inefficient air removal together with the batch effects in
the original sterilisation process. The technologies provide the impetus for a new
paradigm in the operation of palm oil mills.
Today, new drop-in-place
technologies that have compelling
ease of use, cost and carbon

advantages are available to revamp


existing mills. These innovative
methods and systems are engineered
to address the issues of inefficient air
removal and batch effects of
sterilisation because these are the root
causes of rapid large uctuations in
demand and high consumption of
process steam related to the
sterilisation process. Once these drawbacks are resolved, sterilisation in the
horizontal steriliser can regain its superior performance.
The technologies offer several benets. Firstly, because the steam demand is
successfully reduced, it can be met satisfactorily by existing over-stretched
steam boilers and ring lesser amount of fuel. Secondly, the constancy of process
steam demand allows for a stable boiler operation enabling compliance with
regulatory boiler stack emission limits. Thirdly, boiler plant maintenance issues
and downtime are reduced.
The fourth signicant advantage of the new technologies is that having boilers
rendered a near steady-state operation, they become amenable for full
automation of their operation. Automation can now facilitate control of the boiler
plant including furnace draft and fuel feed systems.
The above relieve mill engineers of the major problems they encounter in their
daily work at their mills high count of unstripped bunches, inconsistent
process temperatures due to uctuating process steam pressure, inability of
turbine to cope with process steam demand, black smoke emission from boiler
stack, or lack of boiler fuel especially during low-crop seasons. Other pressing
issues such as increasing environmental concerns and regulations, and skilled
manpower shortages affecting boiler plant operation can now also be effectively
addresed.
Relieved from being bogged down by mill utility issues, mill managers and
engineers are now free to devote more time on process performance issues like,
quality of the nished products, product losses and extraction efficiencies.

With the new technologies in place, you


are empowered to enhance your core
business by gaining more quality time
forreection andcreativity nally
relieved of disruptive utility chores.
Statistics Behind the Scene
Energy Made Easy It is estimated that
The Dream Mill could slice up to two fths of its energy demand with the new
design.
