When asked about Palm Oil Processing Machines in Nigeria, I can’t help but feel nostalgic as memories of those old manual palm oil press comes to mind.
The vision of two people turning the corkscrew with sheer brute force alone, while palm oil slowly sips into a basin.
That was the late 1990’s and Early 2000’s, fast forward to today, where most people prefer simplicity and easy. You will find most of the palm oil processing machines are more mechanized requiring less labor.
From Ogun state all the way to Akwa Ibom, more and more palm oil mills are upgrading from the traditional means of processing palm oil to more modern approach.
Can you blame them, when the old palm oil processing machines involved a lot of back breaking work.
If you have ever been to a old palm oil mill, you will know that its no walk in the park.its tedious and labor intensive.
Definitely not for the faint of body.
Its why most palm oil mills across Nigeria are upgrading to the more mechanized option of using a digester and an oil press, which is run by a diesel engine
Because of these upgrades, the milling process that use to be an extended family process involving 8-12 people, has now gone down to 5-7 people.
Although its less tedious, it still involves some backbreaking work.
Now that more and more companies are getting into the business of Palm Oil Processing Machines. Newer models of digester and oil press are coming on board to make the processing a lot more easier.
More importantly, less tedious
So what are the cost implications.
Manual Palm Oil Processing Machines
Barrels N4,500- N6,000 per Barrel.
Manual oil press N120,000- 350,000
Labour per month: N10000-20000 X 7-10
Storage: Prices depends drums and output
Facility: Cost depends on location
Output Per day
From the video, you will be looking at a rough estimate of 1-3 drums a day, this will depend on the number of people you have manning the oil Press.
Digester and Palm Oil Process Machines
Barrels. N4,500- N6,000 per Barrel
Foreign 1TPD-5TPD Digester and Oil press/Expeller N1,200,000-N5,500,000
Local or Fair Used 1TPD-5TPD Digester and Oil Press/ Expeller N
Labour: N15000-20000 LPM(Labourer per month)X 4-6
Storage: Prices depends drums and output
Office Location: Cost depends on location
In less than 15 minutes you have half a drum(100 litres) of palm oil, factor in the delay period to clean the digester.
A total of 20 minutes to mill 100 litres and 40 minutes for one 200 litres, at 8 hours a day, will give you 8 drums a day.

As you can see, its more efficient and effective to use a digester / palm oil press expeller to set up a mill.
These Palm oil processing machines have helped a lot of small scale business startups, in setting up palm oil mills quicker and easier.
There by increasing the availability of Palm Oil, even during the periods of scarity.
