Triple 240L Supercritical CO2 Extractor
Size & Weight
The frame, the vessels and piping are built with stainless steel, the total structure has the following dimensions: Wide 6 m (19.6 feet), Height 4.4 m (14.4 feet), Deep 3.9 m (12.7 feet). The Weight of the machinery is around 24000 kg (52910 pounds). Minimum room size of 10×8 m (32.8×26.2 feet) and Height of 7.2 m (23.6 feet).
It is an industrial system equipped with three 240 L extractors for semi-continuous extraction, overlapping extraction and soaking extraction. It is available with 3 or more separators for the fractionation of the extract. Provided with a diaphragm pump and stainless-steel frame to comply with HACCP and GMP guide lines. Voltage 460V/3ph or 400V/3ph, frequency 60Hz or 50Hz, installed Power 64 kW, Current 99 A. Computer on board and 15″ touch screen.
Configuration of supercritical CO2 extractor
There are two 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. At the condition of max pressure this pumps can ensure a CO2 Flow of 1000 kg/h, and Co-solvent Flow of 100 kg/h.
This system is equipped with a safety certified PLC in addition to process PLC controlling the position of the lids, the position of the valves and other safety sensors assuring safety operations. Improving safety of the operator is our mission.

Use this Industrial CO2 Exctraction System for:
Industrial extraction systems are designed for large and very large volume of raw material. They are very large in size but simple to use like all other systems. Stainless steel frame. They need large extraction rooms. Configuration with one extractor (single), two extractors (double) or three extractors (triple). Semi continuous extraction or overlapping extraction or soaking extraction processes are included in the standard recipe list, together with the CIP cleaning recipe.
They are very flexible and can be adapted to the extraction of many different matrices simply by loading the right recipe. They are robust, designed following the Machine Directive guidelines, perfectly to work 24/7. Separeco produces industrial systems from 120 to 4400 liters extractor.
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.
