Process of coir fibre

Coir is a natural fibre extracted from coconut.

The fibre which is extracted from coconut husk and it is processed.

Extraction of coir

Our Indian coirs have automated machines to extract the fibre and also refine it.

The machine automatically remove the fibres from the husk and separates the coir pith.

Drying in yard

Drying process is undertaken in the vast spread cement yard which is surrounded by a compound wall.

The material will be collected at sufficient moisture.

Once the moisture level of the material is reached, it gets ready for coir baling.

Coir Baling

Once drying process is done, coir is hydraulically operated and it compresses the loose fine coconut fibre into bales of fixed sizes and weights.

Once the coir is baled, then the coir fibre is compressed into 30 kg bales.

The 30 Kg bales are then compressed into 120 kg bales and then loaded into containers.
