Mobile Coconut Milk and Mobile Virgin Coconut Oil Processing

  1. 1. Mobile Processing of Coconut Milk and Virgin Coconut OilThe concept of a Mobile Milk Factory Unit (MMF) The MMF Truck Trailer is a self-contained (water, a purposely designed trailer. This trailer isstarted by discovering that existing fixed building power, fuel) unit and travels to farms for on- refrigerated and comes fully equipped withfacilities are generally used at a fraction of their site processing. The mobile factory can remain all regulatory approved equipment. All floordesigned capacity and some operate under onsite for the duration of the factory process. drains are connected to central points for easyinadequate hygienic conditions. A definite need Site facility equipment supplied by the land coupling. The converted mechanical horse isexists for hygienic processing facilities, both for owner is limited to fruit transport trailers. Bins used as storage for product containers. Bottledpublic health reasons and to replace expensive and micro trailers are filled and parked adjacent coconut milk or VCO containers are transferredfixed building projects. This MMF Truck Trailer is to the mobile factory to initiate processing. For to a refrigerated truck for transportation to retailcapable of processing coconuts for Coconut Milk customers where extended production is assured, distribution. The fixed distribution warehouseand Virgin Coconut Oil (VCO) to meet hygienic the trailer can be converted to a modular pod. facility is utilized as the centralized schedulingprocessing and food grade standards. and maintenance location. The mobile factory Coconut milk and VCO production is performed will operate within a 150km radius of the under controlled hygienic conditions using centralized location.

  4. 4. Mobile Coconut Milk Factory The use of a Mobile Coconut Milk Factory provides a cost effective and innovative solution for food grade processing of coconuts. A transportable or movable factory enables processing at various locations, without the excessive capital expenses and permitting associated with fixed factories. This improves the coconut producers margin per coconut by reducing transportation costs and improving process efficiency. Factories can be configured as Mobile Pods or on Trailers.Main Benefits Hardware Features Hardware Features Reduced transportation costs of fruit  BPW Leaf spring type trailer  Storage space for small tools Reduced logistical management of fruit  8.25 x 19.5 Stud rims  Equipment sterilizing facilities transportation.  Payload 26,140 kg  Hermetically sealed compressor (freon) Small factory sized for lower volume coconut  Capacity: 4,000 coconuts per day  Interlocking devices on all hydraulic cylinders production  Suitably sized generator set for safety Bottling on site using independent refriger-  Electrical control panel  Refrigerated factory floor 10º Celsius ated unit  Cold and hot water  Mechanical ventilation Coconut waste contained for Bio-Gas  LPG water heating on demand  Mains power point connection Local use of fruit waste for compost  Complete plumbing and draining.  Liquid drain to Bio-Waste container  220 Volt circuit  Stainless steel chutes to outside for coconut  Hygienic staff amenities waste products  Hot and cold wash points  Galvanized platform frames and aluminium  Regulatory entrance lobby tops Intermodal Farms http://intermodalfarms.com/ info@intermodalfarms.com J7 2012 B
