Press FS 4015 offers a whole new dimension in the processing capacity of oil seeds. High efficiency, high resistance of the press parts and ease of operation are few of the many other benefits of this high-capacity press, on which our 25 years of experience in the field is maximized.
The press is manufactured using newest manufacturing techniques such as advanced surface welding of workpieces and the use of 1D and 3D modeling processes in the press for optimizing screw geometry.
High variability in layout makes it possible to use these presses in one-level or two-level pressing for different technologies according to mechanical and thermal treatment of seeds.
FS 4015 is an oil seed screw press with wide range of use. The heart of the press is a multistage pressing geometry, where the shape of the screw flight in the individual stages leads to the compression of the seeds inside the press, thereby gradually separating the oil from the seeds.
The resulting pressure causes the oil extrusion. The oil flows out of the workspace through small slots in the press bin into the collection tank. Changing the shape of the screw-thread and changing the drainage gaps makes it possible to optimize the process for individual types of oil seeds and the type of technology. The main drive actuates the shaft with the pressing mechanism. The drive is powered by an electric motor, a belt conversion and a gearbox.
Farmet offers optional accessories that are capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding customers. A wide variety of hoppers, conveyors, tanks, seed pre-treatment equipment, and pumping, filtration and refining can be added to the press. However, the most suitable solution is to deliver a complete turnkey solution, only this way a technically and economically optimized solution according to your requirements is guaranteed, including the automatization of the entire process.
The FS 4015 oil seed press is a high-capacity press that reaches performance from 100 tons per day to 240 tons per day. Normally, it is offered for electrical networks according to the EU specification, but it is possible to adapt the electrical installation to the requirements of local markets (USA, Canada ...). The electrical installation can be equipped with a frequency changer of the main drive, which allows a better optimization of the pressing process. The presses are equipped with electrical motors of 250 - 550 kW, depending on the technology.
