Coconut de husked

Fresh de husked mature coconuts are used for cooking in households, in the food industry and FMCG industries.

These fresh coconuts are filled with the goodness of coconut water and are high in proteins and energy. Coconuts are part of the daily diet of many people.

When mature they still contain some water and can also be used as seed nuts; or processed to obtain: oil from the kernel, charcoal from the hard shell and coir from the fibrous husk.

02

Coconut shell powder (CSP)

Coconut shells free from contamination of coir pith, etc., are broken into small pieces and fed into a pulveriser.

The powder from the pulveriser is fed into a cyclone and the parallel product is collected in bag filters. The shell powder is then fed into a vibrating sieving machine and packed according to mesh size requirements for various end uses.

The rejects from the sieving machine can be recycled in the pulverizer for size reduction. The main requirements for consistent good quality of coconut shell powder are proper selection of shell of proper stage of maturity and efficient machinery

03

Coconut shell charcoal

Shell Charcoal is obtained by burning the shell of fully matured coconuts with a limited supply of air so that they do not burn away to ash but are only carbonized.

The manufacture of shell charcoal shows from the coconut shell has become a very important economic and commercial activity. Furthermore, coconut shell charcoal, which was relatively a minor product in the past, has now developed into a general commercial commodity due to its intrinsic value as a raw material for the manufacture of activated carbon.
Coconut shell charcoal are of two types: viz Coconut shell charcoal and granulated shell charcoal.

04

Coconut shell activated carbon

The process of activation is carried out in two stages. Firstly the coconut shell is converted into shell charcoal by carbonization process which is usually carried out in mud-pits, brick kilns and metallic portable kilns. The coconut shell charcoal is activated by reaction with steam at a temperature of 900oC -1100oC under controlled atmosphere in a rotary kiln. The reaction between steam and charcoal takes place at the internal surface area, creating more sites for adsorption. The temperature factor, in the process of activation is very important. Below 900oC the reaction becomes too slow and is very uneconomical. Above 1100°C the reaction becomes diffusion controlled and therefore takes place on the outer surface of the charcoal resulting in loss of charcoal.
