Supercritical fluid extractorThe SFT-2000 Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) System is a mid-scale SFE designed for the demanding needs of the research chemist and process engineer. The SFT-2000 offers the flexibility of parallel processing. Standard configurations allow for two vessels up to 1 liter capacity each or a single vessel as large as 2 liters. A custom version of the SFT-2000 may be equipped with a vessel as large as 5 liters. The larger vessels are ideal for extracting very low levels of key components and processing large amounts of bulk material in a short time. Pressurization of carbon dioxide at flow rates up to 250 ml/min. is possible with the newly designed, Peltier cooled SFT-20 CO2 Pump. Building upon the proven technology in the SFT-10, this pump increases flow rates ten-fold. It does not require an external cooling bath and is completely self-contained. An integrated pre-heater guarantees the temperature of the fluid delivered to the extraction vessel is consistent, thus ensuring efficient and repeatable results. Vessels use band heaters and internal thermocouples to ensure the highest level of temperature accuracy. An optional co-solvent pump adds versatility, enabling extraction of moderately polar compounds.
