Supercritical fluid extractor

Supercritical Fluid Technologies’ bench-top supercritical fluid extractor (SFE), the model SFT-110, provides an alternative to traditional extraction methods that use organic solvents. Fast, efficient extraction of a variety of materials may be achieved using supercritical carbon dioxide. The SFT-110 SFE is well suited for research and process development applications. The bench top product line has a redesigned restrictor valve with integrated micrometer for precise flow control. A completely removable oven lid and large side panel enable easy access to the high-pressure vessel. An indicator light on the SFT-10 pump module alerts the user to proper operation of the Peltier precooler, ensuring CO2 is maintained in the liquid state.
