Supercritical Fluid Technologies, Inc.’s SFT-250 Supercritical Fluid Extractor (SFE) is designed to perform a variety of extractions in supercritical fluid and is engineered to meet the day-to-day rigors of the research lab. Additionally, the system may be used for small scale pilot processing. The SFT-250 is simple to operate and easy to modify for evolving applications needs.
The SFT-250’s extraction vessel is forged from durable stainless steel. Vessels can range in size from 100 mL to 5 liters. Larger vessels are idea for extracting very low levels of key components from a raw material or for process larger amounts of bulk material. A wide range of operations pressures (up to 10,000 psi) and temperatures (ambient to 200 oC) ensures the SFT-250 has the flexibility required to meet almost any application of supercritical fluids.
The SFT-250 is controlled by PID controllers. These manage pumping rates, pressures, temperature zones and safety interlocks. Upgrades include: various co-solvent modules, data logging and flow control automation.
