Super Critical Fluid Extraction
August 16, 2019

The high pressure extraction using Super-critical gases. The extraction is based on the principle that substance dissolve at much higher rate in super-critical gases than would normally be expected at a given vapour pressure. carbon dioxide has proven to be one of the best super-critical  gases for this purpose.

Super Critical Extraction process demands equipments of special construction with sophisticated closing and locking arrangement as the entire process is carried out at an exorbitant pressure of 4500 pounds / sq. inch and above. Sundex Process Engineers Pvt. Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of Super Critical Fluid Extraction plants. The processes are carried out by solvent above its critical pressure and temperature.
