We are ISO 9001 certified by TUV, UL listed, ASME certified, CE and PED certified by Apave, CRN for Canada.
Configuration of supercritical CO2 extractor
Extras included in the price
There are three pumps, the most important is the CO2 pump, the carbon dioxide is the principal solvent for the extraction of apolar chemical compounds; and the secondary pump or co-solvent pump, which is used for the contemporary release in the process of polar or medium apolar co-solvents, useful for the extraction of chemical compounds with different degrees of polarity. The third is the liquid pump, delivering the liquid to be fractionate to the fractionation column. At the condition of max pressure this pumps can ensure a CO2 Flow of 200 kg/h, co-solvent Flow of 20 kg/h and liquid pump Flow of 30 L/hr.
ASME certified safety valve for each vessel in isolated tubing from vessel.

Use this CO2 Fractionation System for:
Production systems are designed for small to fractionate medium volume of liquid material. They are compact and easy to use. Their dimensions are design to fit any kind of extraction room, ISO8 or ISO7 included. Configuration with one fractionation tower. Semi continuous fractionation or continuous fractionation are included in the standard recipe list, together with the CIP cleaning recipe.
They are very flexible and can be adapted to the fractionation of oils or other lipophilic matters. Change of process simply by loading the right recipe. They are robust, designed following the Machine Directive guidelines, perfectly to work 24/7. Separeco produces production fractionation systems from 5 to 20 liters towers.
We provide all the necessary documentation requested by qualification inspectors and authority, like:
- Material Certificate
- Welding Certificate
- USR (User Requirement Specifications)
- DQ (Design Qualification)
- IQ (Installation Qualification)
- OQ (Operational Qualification)
We give full support via internet to solve technical problems quickly and for routine maintenance interventions. In many cases our technicians are able to solve problems online without having to physically go to the installation site, by connecting to the system via the internet, thanks to cutting-edge tools for remote support. If it is not technically possible to solve the problem remotely, the technician will be responsible for organizing an intervention on site. All support technicians are qualified and with years of experience.
Automation is a generic term. It does not provide any information on what the machine is really doing on its own. Automation for us is not just the control of pressure, flow or temperature. We have introduced a new concept, “Adaptive Automation”, to describe a new hardware / software system capable of modifying the process cycle as required by the operator. This new automation “literally” changes the way the system will produce the extract, something completely different from simply controlling pressure and temperature.
Design on URS
By User Requirement Specifications we mean the functions that a specific device must have in order to satisfy the needs and requirements of its end user; or, more simply, it is what a device is expected to be able to offer to those who use it, in terms of functionalities. Generally their specification takes place through the drafting of a specific document (called User Requirement Specifications – URS) which takes place in the validation phase of the machinery itself, therefore before this is actually designed.
