Pilot and Industrial Scale
SCF Extraction Systems
Easy-to-use systems from Applied Separations, greening your process has never been more important.
Benefits of Supercritical Fluid Extraction
Reduced impact on global warming
Reduced energy consumption
No petroleum solvents, reduced solvent use
No hazardous or toxic residue
Reduced solvent disposal costs
No addition to the greenhouse effect
The perfect start to greening your process.
Applied Separations designates pilot systems as having extraction or reaction vessels from 5 litres to 80 litres.
Working with you, one-on-one, Applied Separations will design your custom, multipurpose, movable pilot plant or small production system. It can be as straightforward as a manual system having one extractor vessel and venting to atmosphere or an automated system having multiple extraction/reaction vessels with multiple separators, recycling the CO2.
Too many to list, but here are a few...
Temperatures ambient to 650° C
Pressures from low to very high, more than 2000 BAR
Single or multiple separators
Specialty basket designs
View cells, video interface
In-vessel UV/Vis measurements
Beaming Microwave through SCF pressure vessels
Particle formation - organic or inorganic
Automated control, Automated closures
Manual or sophisticated automated software
Supercritical propane and other gases and liquids
Cleanroom environments… medical or IC
NO carbon dioxide is produced in the SCF process
Carbon dioxide is one of the most commonly used supercritical fluids. It is safe, inexpensive, readily available, and an ideal substitute for many hazardous and toxic solvents.
During the supercritical process, only existing carbon dioxide is used.
Large Scale Production Systems
Production scale systems from Applied Separations offer all the same options and advantages of the Pilot Scale systems.
With over 25 years experience, involving literally thousands of systems, Applied Separations' engineering team designs each system to operate within the unique requirements of the individual customer.
The engineering team will review your specifications, work with you to design a system customised for your application, build the system, and provide you with documentation and operating instructions. From inception to inspection, the team is there to provide guidance and assistance in making your project a reality.
