Crown Iron Works' roots date back to 1878. The business eventually evolved into a process engineering company in the late 1940s with a focus on the edible oils industry. With our own proprietary line of equipment, Crown has literally worked across the centuries to deliver solutions guaranteed to meet customer expectations.

Crown offers oilseed preparation, extraction and refining equipment and technology with the lifetime support to back it up. Crown also serves the nutraceutical, specialty chemical, food and waste industries in the areas of specialty extraction (process recovery of essential oils and extracts), CO2 extraction, and drying—with a variety of dryers, desolventizers and coolers for solvent- and water-wet products.
