Supercritical Fluid Extraction

The Fluitron Model SFE-10 is an extremely versatile research tool for studies in supercritical fluid extraction.

Fluitron's 30+ years experience in high pressure and temperature technology has produced a unit that is easy to use, facilitates quick turnover and is low maintenance. The system features a 100cc, 10,000 psi extractor, 500cc separator, air-operated liquid pump, temperature, pressure & flow controls, as well as all of the necessary interconnecting piping, valves, fittings and electronics. A schematic diagram of the piping system and controls is provided. The carbon dioxide is first filtered, and then pressurized and pumped into the extractor. The fluid passes over the material being processed in the extractor vessel. Pressure is maintained in the extractor using a micro-metering valve. Temperature of the extractor is maintained by a PID microprocessor based controller. The solute-laden carbon dioxide is then depressurized and separated in the separator vessel. The extracted solute is collected in the separator. The carbon dioxide passes through a flow meter and is then vented.
