Co2 Extraction Vs. Hydrocarbon Extraction: Comparative Analysis

Supercritical CO2 extraction process of curcumin

SFE is a typical operation at high solvent feed ratio, high air velocity and low fluid viscosity. Compared with traditional liquid-liquid extraction, SFE-CO2 has better selectivity, and supercritical fluid extraction technology has broad application prospects in the food, chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

Supercritical CO2 extraction process

Five major aspects to consider in the design of supercritical extraction kettle

The extraction kettle is one of the keys to the development of supercritical extraction technology. It has the characteristics of high strength, strong rigidity, good stability and durability, and good quick-opening sealing effect. Therefore, the design of supercritical extraction kettle should be strictly carried out according to the process requirements.
