Supercritical fluid extractor designed for pilot projects


Using supercritical CO2 to perform fluid extractions on natural materials produces a pure extract, removing the need for distillation. It is also possible to obtain multiple compositions from a single raw material. The pilot-scale Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ SFT-NPX-10 performs supercritical fluid extractions in either single or dual 10 L sample vessels with single or dual separators. A Coriolis mass flowmeter provides precise mass flow measurement and a pneumatic CO2 pump with an integral pre-chiller is used to maximize pumping efficiency. A programmable controller is available as an upgrade for automated regulation of pressure, temperature and process cycles. Supercritical Fluid Technologies Inc.
