Palm fruit is an edible oil crop which needs to be processed for oil extraction. However, the manual method of stripping and the existing palm stripper are found ineffective due to prolonged stripping time leading to low quality and quantity of oil produced. Modern methods of stripping have greatly improved production rates and reduced stripping time. The main objective of this Work was to come up with an improved design and fabricate a palm stripping machine with locally available material that is low-cost, higher through put, better efficient, easy to operate, easy to maintain and affordable to both small and medium scale palm oil processors.
