Axis Industrial Ltd – has been manufacturing and supplying coconut oil equipment to the Pacific Islands since it was discovered the olive oil press could be used for coconut oil. The design of the Aquarius Coconut Oil press is based on the Olive Oil Press. Like the olive oil press, the simplicity of operation and robust construction has made this a reliable press for the extraction of quality virgin coconut oil. The Aquarius coconut oil press is portable and requires no power therefore it is suitable for remote island communities. It is semi hydraulic, which enables enormous pressure to be applied to the coconut meal. It is suited to both dried coconut meal, wet coconut meal, or coconut cream.
The Aquarius Coconut scraper was developed two years ago with many clients asking for a coconut scraper to go with their coconut oil press. The coconut scraper is strong with a .37kw motor and an emergency switch. The unique design of the cutter head gives a better yield of oil.
This equipment is vital in ensuring that farmers can produce quality virgin coconut oil to sell locally at the organic markets in the Pacific Islands, Africa, and Asia or export to other parts of the world. Income farmers generate from the coconut oil is used to help families with education, cost of living, and shelter for their families.
The coconut oil presses have been sold to the Pacific Islands including the Cook Islands, Guam, Hawaii, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tahiti, Tonga, Vanuatu, Fiji, and other parts of Africa.
Coconut farmers on remote island plantations can now produce their own virgin coconut oil (vco) thanks to the Aquarius oil equipment used to extract the oil from the flesh from the coconut.

01 / Coconut Scraping
The Aquarius Coconut scraper was developed two years ago with many clients asking for a coconut scraper to go with their coconut oil press. The coconut scraper is strong with a .37kw motor and an emergency switch. The unique design of the cutter head gives a better yield of oil. After the Coconut has been dehusked and the outer layer has been removed, the Aquarius Coconut Scraper is used to scrape out the coconut flesh. It is important to then let the coconut flesh dry on a drying table to reduce moisture before being loaded into the Aquarius Coconut Oil Press.
To extract the coconut oil.
The dried coconut is weighed before being placed into the Aquarius coconut oil press machines, the coconut is contained in a stainless steel cylinder with slits cut in it which sits in a pot with a pouring spout. To use the coconut press. Turn the top screw to apply moderate pressure, then the hydraulic jack is gently foot pumped to apply up to 10 tonnes of pressure from below to squeeze the virgin coconut oil from the flesh and into oil. By using a series of acrylic mats and stainless steel plates, the press achieves close to the total extraction of the oil that can be extracted by cold pressing. The whole top assembly swings open for filling and emptying. Some filter the coconut oil with a cloth.
