Supercritical Fluid Technologies has introduced a pilot-scale supercritical extractor for the processing of natural products. The SFT-NPX-10 is designed to simplify extraction for a variety of natural products using safe, efficient carbon dioxide. It may be used to facilitate the transition from laboratory-scale equipment to large production-scale systems. The SFT-NPX-10 is designed to perform supercritical fluid extractions in processing vessels of 20-L capacity and below with single or dual separators. A Coriolis mass flow meter guarantees precise mass flow measurement. A pneumatic carbon dioxide 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. A carbon dioxide recycle option is available.
