Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc. introduces the SFT-150 Supercritical Fluid Extraction/Reaction System developed to investigate the feasibility of applying supercritical fluid techniques to various analyses and processing situations. Whether it’s repetitive laboratory extractions or process development and optimization, the SFT-150 provides an excellent introduction to the power and versatility of supercritical fluids extraction / reaction technology.

The SFT-150 System is a fully capable instrument, designed to perform extractions and run reactions in a supercritical fluid media. This introduction to supercritical fluids offers the flexibility and safety features often found only in higher priced extraction systems. The modular design of the SFT-150 makes it easy and cost effective to alter the unit’s basic configuration, adapting it to meet new or evolving application needs. At the heart of the SFT-150 System is a stainless steel vessel capable of containing supercritical fluids at pressures up to 10,000 psi. The SFT-150 comes standard with a 100 ml hand-tight sample vessel and is unique in its ability to accommodate pressure vessels of up to 2 liters capacity.

The SFT-150 System pressurization is controlled by an air regulator which regulates the amount of air supplied to the pump allowing “dial in” pressure control. A PID temperature controller allows for the control of the fluid temperature in the units vessel. In addition, an optional co-solvent module can be configured into the SFT-150.
