OVERVIEW

Supercritical Fluid (SCF) extraction is receiving considerable attention as a means of separation in the chemical, food, pharmaceutical, and energy industries. The process is the latest technique used to

extract oils from natural products, organic pollutants from wastewater, aromatic isomers from mixtures, low-molecular weight materials from polymers and light components from coal

. Several firms are employing the technique in various commercial applications, such as coffee decaffeination or botanical extraction. Newport Scientific offers the Supercritical Fluid Extraction System is a complete turnkey for extractions up to 9,200 psi and separations up to 9,200 psi.

SYSTEM OPERATION

Gas or fluid from your commercial gas bottle passes through a filter to the compressor. The compressor stroke rate is 58 RPM. The extraction pressure and flow rate is controlled by a back pressure regulator as is the separation pressure. The extractions and separation temperatures are controlled and indicated independently. A second atmospheric separation may be performed in a glass vessel or cold trap before the gas stream passes through the flow rate indicator and flow totalizer and is vented to the atmosphere.
