Coco fiber production process is as follow:
- Coconut husk thrown to conveyor belt then get into the crusher machine to separate fibers from peat. The main component of crusher machine is a rotating pit with particular blades on it. Then fibers from crusher machine, get into the sifter machine to remove coco peat from coco fiber that still remain.
- Fibers that get out from the Sifter Machine spread at the drying floor and stir it up for several times to remove some coco peat. After fibers dry and tested then it collected. The worker push dried fibers into the cleaner machine to remove short fibers and coco peat for the last time. Coco peat removal did several times to reduce impurity of coconut fiber which is low impurity is one of fiber’s export requirement.
- Then fibers packed by high pressure machine and strap with plastic band. The worker stack fiber in bale by some raw at the warehouse and ready to ship.
