Features of Pressurized Fluid Extraction (PFE)
Reduce Solvent Costs
Pressurized liquid extraction uses as little as 15 mL of solvent compared to more than 500 mL of solvent required to perform Soxhlet extractions.
Reduce Solvent Waste
The PLE system reduces solvent waste by using solvents more efficiently.
The entire extraction and cleanup may be performed in less than 30 minutes. Traditional methods can take 10 to 16 hours.
Reduce Operating Costs Rapid extraction and clean-up, along with reduced solvent use and waste, reduces operating costs by as much as 70 percent.
Five to 250 mL Extraction Cell Sizes
The PLE™ system offers 5-250 mL low cost stainless steel extraction cells with Teflon endcap filtration. This wide range of extraction cell volumes allows the use of the same unit for all sample sizes, even in the same run.
Modular, Expandable and Affordable
The modular design of the PLE system allows you to purchase a one, two or three sample system to fit your budget. The system can be expanded to a five or six sample system as your application grows.
Eliminate cross contamination
Optional low-cost disposable extraction cells and Teflon filtration endcaps ensure trouble-free extraction and eliminate the risk of cross contamination.
One-Step Sample Extraction and Cleanup
The optional in-line cleanup module performs the entire sample extraction and cleanup in one step with increased speed and reduced cost.
Automatic Operation and Documentation
Real-time software allows six channels of pressure and six channels of temperature data to be plotted simultaneously. This powerful feature allows automatic documentation of all extraction data. Temperature and pressure data can be superimposed and printed in either graphic or tabular format and stored for future reference.
PC Control and Monitoring
The entire extraction process is PC controlled enabling the laboratory technician to store and edit extraction protocols, as well as monitor and store extraction data. The DMS-6000 Editor allows multiple methods to be stored. Parameters such as time, solvent, volume and final temperature can be set for each step of each method. Pressure and temperature, as well as dispensed volumes, are displayed every second and stored for future reference. Six channels of pressure and six channels of temperature may also be plotted in real time. This powerful feature allows automatic documentation of the entire extraction data.
A Versatile Method Development Tool
The powerful DMS 6000 real time software along with a variety of extraction cell capacities and the ability to select multiple solvents, different temperature settings, as well as storage of data makes the PLE system an ideal tool for method development.
Modular Construction Provides for Easy Maintenance
The modular design of the PLE system combined with its exposed plumbing enables efficient system maintenance. The PLE system's channels are designed to operate independently, so if one channel fails the others will continue to perform. This versatility ensures easy replacement with no down time.
Leak and Clog Free Operation
Simple design combined with large bore plumbing enables the PLE system to operate virtually leak and clog free.
Programming of variable pressure and temperature allows extraction of a variety of compounds.
