CP2 - Two-level Cold Pressing

Technology of two-level cold pressing is solution for both careful pressing and high yield. During the pressing, oilseeds are not heated up and therefore retain biologically valuable substances and the oil also contains only a small amount of phospholipids, which facilitates its further processing.

Naturally, the CP2 technology also comes with complete engineering and other services, such as technical support, service possibilities, and accessible spare parts.

Technologies delivered by Farmet are equipped with the visualization and control system – Farmet Intelligent Control (FIC).


Technology Description

The sequence starts with a temporary container capable of supplying seeds for several hours of operation. For operation in colder environments (in winter), when seeds could potentially be exposed to temperatures below 15 °C, we recommend adding technology for temperature stabilization. Seeds are transported from the container continuously into the first-level presses. At this stage, we suggest including equipment for seed cleaning. It is also possible to supplement the technology with weighing equipment at entry, or hulling and hull separation. Press cakes are carried into the final press. Resulting oil still contains some impurities (solids) and has to be further processed with separation and filtration.


The company Farmet offers optional accessories that will satisfy even the most demanding customers. Our delivery can be supplemented with a spectrum of funnels, conveyors, tanks, and equipment for seed pre-treatment as well as for pumping, filtration, refining and storage of oil. Nonetheless, the most convenient solutions are usually our turnkey deliveries, which are optimized from both the technical and economic perspectives, meet all your requirements and include the automatization of the entire process.

Technical Parameters

The technology of two-level cold pressing is a comprehensive solution for oilseed pressing. This technology is offered at capacities between 6 and 500 tons of seeds per day. The design routinely meets EU specifications; however, it can be adjusted to wiring requirements from local markets (e.g. USA, Canada, etc.).
