Supercritical Fluid Technologies SFT-250



The SFT250 SFE Processing System is designed to perform extractions in a supercritical fluid media. This system was engineered to meet the day-to-day rigors of the research laboratory and may be used for small scale pilot processing. The SFT250 is simple to operate, easy to modify for evolving application needs, and features many of the performance characteristics of fully automated pilot scale systems. The SFT-250 offers the maximum flexibility and safety features of any laboratory supercritical fluid extraction instrument available in the market today.
