Samsudin, Aimi (2010) Influence of ffb grade in th efficiency of palm oil mill processing plant study on oer for loose fruit / Aimi Samsudin. Degree thesis, Universiti Teknologi Mara, Pulau Pinang.


This project will indicate the influences of FFB grade in the efficiency of Palm Oil Mill processing plant. The purposes of this project are to investigate the ripeness of the fruit whether it will affect the processing of producing the CPO by any circumstances and also analyze the CPO contains in ripe and unripe bunches. Grading of FFB will be monitor to separate ripe and unripe bunches as a preparations for the process. Separation process of ripeness category will be carried out. This project is focusing at threshing, digestion and pressing station. For analysis, the sample will be taken for. This sample will show the quality of oil produce form the process whether the oil meet the specification or otherwise from the observation, the quality of unripe bunches is lower quality compared to the ripe bunches. Such as FFA analysis DOBI analysis shows that unripe bunches have lower FFA and lower DOBI. Separations of processing give different quality parameters. Through the unripe processes, some interruption been detected. This interruption cause higher losses within the processing. As the results, unripe bunches give some losses to the processing of FFB and produce lower amount of oil. In term of quality, lower FFA been produce but DOBI value is lower than the parameter of standard quality give the quality of oil is lower from the standard quality. In conclusion, this project is a successful project and the objective are been achieved.
