How to Retrieve Palm Fibre
After the removing the oil palm fruit, it left over with the empty fruit bunch (EFB). The EFB comes in wet form which is the nature of the palm oil process. The EFB fibre will go through a shredded EFB process for further squeezing out the water and remaining oil content. The shredded EFB will send for drying and separating the the long fibre.
Only the Long Palm fibre is suitable for mattress application. Separating the long fibre and short fibre are very importance process as this going to affect the mattress quality.

The long fibre comes in loose form or in fluffy condition. It is very bulky and not effective in shipping process. Compress the long palm fibre into bale form is a mandatory process as this going to help more effective in shipping.
Every company has their own individual bale form dimension. Currently we are adopting the 1.2*0.6*0.8m. Base on our experience, the bale dimension is selected in order to maximize the storage ability in the container.
Once the bale arrived in user premise, the mattress user will unload the bale form long fibre and re-arrange the palm fibre to suit the mattress dimension.
