MCT Oil / RBD Oil / CME of Coconuts


Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are mixed triglycerides of saturated fatty acids with a chain length of 6 to 12 carbon atoms, mainly C8 (caprylic acid) and C10 (capric acid). we Crown Machinery adopt mainstream process which include molecular distillation section to increase the yield of real MCT Oil (C8,C10 with spot of C6 and C12).

MCT oil can be utilized in multiple applications for cosmetics. It functions as a skin conditioning agent – occlusive, since it slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. One of the major advantages of MCT is that, being a fully saturated oil, it is an inert and stable emollient. It finds application in Aerosols, Creams, Ointments, Lotions, Lipsticks.

Crown Machinery recommends the molecular distillation technique as your first choice for producing MCT oil.



Refined Oil is the most widely used form of coconut oil worldwide. It is also known by the name of RBD Coconut Oil which stands for Refined, Bleached, and Deodorized Coconut Oil. Actually, the oil that is expelled directly from copra is not fit for consumption. This oil is expeller pressed, extracted and treated in a process that does not involve solvents or other chemical processes.

Features of RBD Oil and Processing Line
•Higher yield than other forms of coconut oil
•Raw material is dried meat or copra which is a pretty cheap bulk
•Longer shelf life
•No coconut scent or taste in oil
•Refining technique is very mature which is an important and key factor make the production cost is lowest.
•The entire production process is clean and tidy

Crown Machinery can supply the complete RBD Oil processing line for coconut oil and other vegetable oils.




CME is the acronym for Coconut Methyl Ester or Coco-Biodiesel. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids like vegetable oil with an alcohol producing fatty acid esters. On the other hand, it is the international name for methyl ester when used as diesel fuel or enhance. CME is not the same as the coco-diesel used in the 70’s. Coco-diesel pertains to the use of crude coconut oil. Unlike Coco-Biodiesel, this crude coconut oil did not undergo the process of esterification.

The properties of Coco-Biodiesel result in more efficient combustion that translates to increased engine power, longer mileage, and less emission.

Crown Machinery has rich experience and success in processing CME. We also provide the techniques and equipment to process other types of oil resources such as Biodiesel (e.g. soybean oil, animal fat, palm oil…etc.).
