Supercritical Fluid Technologies offers a bench top supercritical fluid extractor, the model SFT-110. The completely redesigned restrictor valve with integrated micrometer allows for very precise flow control for demanding applications. A completely removable oven lid and large side panel allow the user 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 pre-cooler, ensuring CO2 is maintained in the liquid state. A robust outlet from the restrictor ensures that users will not accidentally damage the outlet tube when inserting it into the collection container.
Supercritical fluid extraction has become a popular 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 suited for both research and process development applications. The use of dual sapphire syringe pump technology, integrated pre-heaters, and precise flow control provides the precision required to achieve these goals.
