  • Solvent extraction

    In contrast to mechanical oil extraction using screw presses or expellers, in solvent extraction the oil is removed from the raw material using a solvent such as hexane, ethanol or supercritical fluids such as CO2 or water vapor. Solvent extraction is particularly suitable for larger processing capacities from approx. 100t/day and scores with higher oil…

  • Mechanical Extraction

    During mechanical extraction, the oil is pressed out of the seed by reducing the volume. In contrast to the past, when the use of manual stamp presses was common, today only screw presses/expellers are mainly used. The screw presses can be precisely adapted to the respective seed and the characteristics of the desired end product…

  • Pressing peeled and structureless seeds and nuts

    Pressing oily or peeled seeds as well as structureless material including nuts After years of development and research work, we have developed a special system configuration that combines several advantages: We have called this system configuration the “Oil-U-Want” configuration. Large-scale processing capacities of up to several tons per hour can be achieved. We will be…

  • Hard Kernel Press

    I_Press HARD – Hard kernel Oil Press The design enables an oil temperature below 40°C with a high degree of pressing out of the seeds. For example, 5.3% oil can be pressed out of grape seeds with only 11.6% fat content, which corresponds to a residual fat content in the press cake of 6.3%. Due…
