SCFN plate low Supercritical Fluid Specialist, partner of the Super Critical Fluid Network (SCFN)  

Standard

 
Description
Advantages
Extractors
   
Single extractor Single extractor in line configuration. Lower cost but wait for pressurizzation, wait for depressurization, wait for venting at the end of the cycle, wait for unloading, wait for loading
Bolt closing sysem Standard for separators and reservoir. Basic closing for extractors. Basic safety. Advanced bolt closing system. Bolts symply closed by hand. Wrench not needed. Not suggested for Extractors.
  Description Advantages
Separators
   
First gravimetric separator Standard in the basic system Cause the separation of the heavier compaounds in the extract from gaseous CO2 or supercritical CO2.
Second cyclonic separator Standard in the basic system Cause the separation of the lighter compounds in the extract from gaseous CO2 or supercritical CO2.
  Description Advantages
Reservoir
   
Standard reservoir 1.5 times the extractor volume Essential to guarantee a stable CO2 flow and CO2 recover the  from the extractor during the depressurization.
  Description Advantages
Pressure
   
Standard pressure 350 bar / 5000 PSI Higher solubility, lower process time.
Low temperature 70° C /  160° F  
Standard temperature 80° C / 180° F  
Flow
   
  Description Advantages
CO2 Pumps
   
Membrane, low flow Duoble membrane dosing pump, flow 3 times the vessel volume in liters. Lower price, longer extraction time but effective. Very long life, low maintenance, pumping head separated from mechanical parts.
Hydronic
   
Hydronic kit, low flow Chiller, heater, sub-cooler, condenser, evaporator, heat echanger 1, heat echanger 2. All hydronic components sized for the low flow profile.
  Description Advantages
Automation
   
Basic automation package Process PLC, 15" touch screen industrial panel,  PC embedded Intel i7 powered, automation software, Human Machine Interface (HMI), recipe software engine, safety control, access control, parameters control, real time graphs, cGMP ready. Operator allarm set by the operator. System allarm. Automatic messages in case of malfunctions, CO2 empy bottle or pressure, temperature, flow or CO2 liquid level above or below the programmed set-point This is the basic harware and software for  the automation af the machine. All process by recipe. Adaptive automation fully controlled by the operator.
Automatic extractor pressure control plug in High stability within ± 1.5%, programmable depressurization time and depressurization curve, no ripple, back pressure valve controlled by pilot valve connected via software. Set point in the recipe. It can be set manually while the process is running in real time. The high stability guarantees the best process repetibility. Controlled depressurization allows the full recovery of the CO2 in the extractor minimizing CO2 loss and raw material freezing.
Automatic temperature control plug in High stability within ± 2%, separated temperature control for each vessel, heter temperature control, temperature probes connected via software. Set point in the recipe. It can be set manually while the process is running in real time. The high stability guarantees the best process repetibility. Separated temperature control allows the best control over the process.
Automatic liquid CO2 level in the reservoir plug in Continuos liquid CO2 level control from 0 to 100%. The level probe never stop working and never get stuck. The level is set at the desired value. No switches or floating ball. This control stabilizes the liquid level in the reservoir automatically. When necessary the valve interloked to the level sensor opens to fill the CO2 from the bottles. Newer it goes out of CO2, preventing cavitation and consequently, bad extraction process.
Automatic pressure control in the reservoir plug in Pressure in the reservoir at the optimal value controlled by the software. It guarantees the best flow stability and the optiumal suction pressure. This control guarantees the best flow stability and the optiumal suction pressure in any good or bad condition. A good control of the CO2 reservoir pressure condition is essential to a good extraction.
