A world-wide leader in the use of Supercritical Fluids

Applied Separations is leading the charge in making Supercritical Fluids a growing part of the conversation on green chemistry.


What used to be a technology intended for extractions of things like caffeine from coffee or tea, can now be applied in dozens of areas; aerogels, metal injection moulding, medical implant cleaning, and artifact restoration, to name but a few.

Applied Separations has built thousands of supercritical fluid (SCF) systems. From large-scale production facilities, to pilot plants to laboratory systems, from extractions to reactions to impregnations, no process is too big or too small.

iBiosys - No CO2 is produced in the SCF process

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.

iBiosys - laboratory scale supercritical fluid extraction

Laboratory scale supercritical systems


The Spe-ed SFE Series, ranging from the modular Helix system to the Spe-ed SFE-Basic for education, has been designed to meet the rigorous needs of day-to-day use in the laboratory.


Simple to operate, fast and affordable, with unique features not found in other SCF systems.

Application Notes

Pilot Plant & Industrial Scale Supercritical Fluid Systems


Supercritical fluid systems can be built to any size and configuration, from small, portable pilot plant systems, all the way to large industrial scale systems.


Applied Separations will work with you, one-on-one, to design your system based on your specific application needs, however unique the size or volume specifications may be.
