Oil press gears

Do not compromise on your gears

At the heart of every oil press is the gear technology. Depending on the material being pressed, high torques may be required of gears. The same applies to the axial forces that must be absorbed. As a result, many well-known producers of vegetable oils do not compromise specifically on these important components and opt for quality gears from Koellmann Gear. This is because Koellmann gears have a reputation for being indestructible for decades.


Oil press gears from Koellmann Gear have been specially developed for the special requirements of oil press systems:

  • Flexible production quantities are made possible by operating with one or two output shafts
  • Best possible, even conveyance of materials for pressing, and thus efficient pressing
  • Absorption of the axial forces generated during the pressing process by the thrust bearings that are integrated in the housing


The gears are used in oil presses for processing seeds, nuts and kernels. This oil obtained from natural products continues to be used in foods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals as well as in energy and biotechnology. Due to the low pressing temperature and gentle pressing, the oil is characteristically of very high quality and can be used as cooking oil without further treatment.

Designs and accessories

Using Koellmann gears that have been customised to the individual requirements, oil press manufacturers can cover all of their gear needs. They combine the highest possible standardisation with compact, one-piece universal housing with maximum flexibility in terms of designs, connections and accessories.
