FS 1010

The expeller press for oilseeds FS 1010 offers a comprehensive solution for maximum oil yield. This expeller press is the company’s flagship technology. A press of our own design and construction, it is intended for larger-scale capacities. Depending on the seed treatment technology the press is always altered so that optimal pressing parameters are reached. This allows the press to be used in many applications of one-level or two-level pressing for various technologies of pressing (with respect to the mechanical and heat treatment of the seeds prior to the pressing itself). Every press is pre-configured and pre-set for a particular application.

Technology Description

The press FS 1010 is a versatile next-generation expeller press for oilseeds. The heart of the press lies in the multi-level pressing geometry. As the shape of the screw shaft changes, compression of seeds occurs inside the press, which leads to a gradual separation of the oil from the seeds. Eventually, the oil seeps out through the outlet slits. The longitudinal organization of the plates allows a larger drainage area and therefore a higher oil yield. Changing the shape of the screw shaft or outlet slits can allows optimization of the process for individual oilseed species and type of technological procedure used.

Technical Parameters

The expeller press FS 1010 is a large capacity press that reaches a performance between 22 and 88 tons per day. The design routinely meets EU specifications; however, it can be adjusted to wiring requirements from local markets (e.g. USA, Canada, etc.). The presses can be equipped with a converter for changing revolutions of the main drive, which allows optimization of the pressing process. The presses are equipped with motors with power output of 55 – 132 kW, depending on the technology.


Farmet offers optional accessories, which will satisfy even the most demanding customer’s needs. Among the standard accessories is a compact transmission with axial position of the shaft, a integrated oil tank with a pump, oil stirrers, integrated hydraulic container opening. Additionally, the press can be equipped with a granulation plate and a cooling system for the screw shaft when utilized for hot pressing. The press is designed to facilitate exchange of all wearable parts. Further accessories include various hoppers, conveyors, tanks, seed pre-treatment equipment as well as equipment for pumping, filtration and oil refining. Yet the best solution is usually our turnkey delivery, which fulfills your requirements and guarantees a solution optimized from both the technical and economic perspectives, as well as comprehensive automatization.
