Soap Noodles and Stearic Acid

A £100,000 turnkey project covering bag filling lines for Palm-Oleo in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, has recently been completed by Webster Griffin, the bagging machinery and systems specialists.  Palm-Oleo, one of the biggest palm oil producers and processors in the world, refines palm oil into stearic acid or soap noodles, exported throughout the world as the basic raw material for soap.

Webster Griffin's contract covers two bag filling lines together with conveyors for extracting soap noodles from storage silos.  Interestingly, the silos are constructed from local hardwood which provides excellent thermal properties for storing soap noodles.  There are two production lines.

One is a 6 tph bagging installation for packing standard bags and includes a microprocessor - based electronic weighing system for in-line check weighing of every filled bag.

A second line deals with 500kg big bags which range in height from 1200-1800mm with a throughput of 10 tph.  A PLC based control system and software has been supplied to control the installation.
