About the Supercritical CO2 Fluid Extraction Machine (SCFE)

Definitions

Supercritical CO2 extraction machine is a kind of equipment that uses the characteristics of supercritical fluid to extract and separate target components in raw materials under suitable operating conditions.

What is supercritical fluid extraction

Supercritical CO2extraction of essential oils

Supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) is a high-tech emerging in modern chemical separation. SFE combines traditional distillation and organic solvent extraction, and uses the excellent solvent power of supercritical fluid to effectively separate, extract and purify the matrix and the extract.

About supercritical CO2 extraction (SCFE)

The commonly used medium for supercritical fluid extraction machines (equipment) is CO2 (supercritical CO2 extraction machine SCFE), but there are also complete sets of supercritical extraction systems that use other fluids such as ethanol, methanol, propane, butane, and pentane as the medium.

In common supercritical fluids, because CO2 is chemically stable, non-toxic and non-corrosive, non-flammable and non-explosive, the critical state is easy to achieve, and its critical temperature (31.1℃) is close to normal temperature, which is very important for food and medicine.

The rich aroma components, physiologically active substances, enzymes or proteins and other heat-sensitive substances have no destructive effect, so CO2 is often used as the extraction medium for supercritical extraction in practical applications.

Features of supercritical CO2 fluid extraction

Soul One Question: Why choose supercritical CO2 fluid extraction?

In the process of extraction and distillation, supercritical fluid technology, as an alternative to conventional separation methods, has many potential applications.

Why is supercritical CO2 a good solvent?

What is supercritical CO2 used for?Supercritical CO2 fluid extraction can be extracted at close to room temperature (35-40°C) and under the envelope of CO2 gas, which effectively prevents the oxidation and dissipation of heat-sensitive substances.

Therefore, the effective ingredients of medicinal plants are kept in the extract, and the substances with high boiling point, low volatility, and easy pyrolysis can be extracted at a temperature far lower than their boiling point;

The use of SCFE (Supercritical CO2 extraction equipment) is the cleanest extraction method.

Since the whole process does not use organic solvents, there are no residual solvents in the extract, thus preventing the existence of harmful substances to the human body and pollution to the environment during the extraction process, and ensuring 100% Pure naturalnes

CO2 is an inactive gas, no chemical reaction occurs during the extraction process, and it is a non-flammable gas, odorless, odorless, non-toxic, and very safe;

CO2 gas is cheap, high in purity, easy to prepare, and can be reused in production, thereby effectively reducing costs;

Supercritical CO2 fluid Pressure and temperature can be used to adjust the parameters of the extraction process.

So the supercritical CO2 fluid extraction process is simple and easy to master, and the extraction speed is fast.

Supercritical CO2 extraction process

Since the density of supercritical CO2 is very sensitive to changes in temperature and pressure, adjusting the pressure or temperature of CO2 can adjust the density of CO2, and then adjust the ability to dissolve the target extract in the raw material.

During the supercritical CO2 extraction process, the extracts obtained at each pressure or temperature range are not single. The conditions can be controlled to obtain the best proportion of the mixed components, and then the supercritical fluid can be turned into an ordinary gas by means of decompression and heating.

It is completely or basically separated from the extracted material, so as to achieve the purpose of separation and purification — this is a conventional supercritical CO2 extraction process.

The composition of supercritical CO2 extraction system

composition of the supercritical CO2 extraction machine

Conventional supercritical CO2 extraction machine generally include extraction systems, separation systems, pressurization systems, heat exchange systems, safety systems and control systems.

On this basis, according to different materials, different target components, and different usage scenarios, the device needs to be equipped with various other functional auxiliary systems, and the design parameters, configuration, equipment composition, and key equipment structure and styles are also different. Not the same.

Therefore, in addition to teaching equipment, most of the supercritical CO2 extraction equipment needs to be differentiated and customized according to customer needs.

  1. Extraction system:It consists of one or more extractors, their maximum working pressure is generally from 350bar-500bar; we can also customize higher working pressures according to user requirements, for example, the extraction of astaxanthin requires a pressure of more than 700bar;
  2. The extractor is generally equipped with a material basket, and its size determines the extraction capacity of each batch.This is an important parameter that expresses the capabilities of supercritical CO2 extraction Equipment.
  3. Separation system: Consists of two or three separators; waxes separation and Light oil separation in 1st separator; light oil separation in 2nd separator; to trap lightest and volatile compounds in 3rd separator.
  4. Boosting system: CO2 high pressure pump(three plunger pump with flow rate)
  5. Heat Exchange System: chilling systems, heat exchange control systems and temperature control systems, heat mixer systems, exchanger
  6. Safety system: High-pressure pump outlet equipped with electro connecting pressure gauge, set working pressure, over-pressure automatic stop pump protection.
    According to the highest working pressure, the extraction kettle and the separation kettle are separately equipped with safety valve and automatic pressure relief.
  7. Co-solvent system:co-solvent vessel(to add liquid solvent in the vessel, slovent like ethanol or alcohol ), co-solvent pump (to pump solvent into extraction systems)
  8. Control system: Pressure control systems, touch screen control panel system (HMI, or automated PLC control system for choice).
  9. Gas supply and recovery system: Food grade CO2 cylinders (customer self provided, 99.5% purity food grade CO2), CO2 storage vessel, CO2 Recovery pump, purification systems
  10. Others: electric control cabinet, operation control panel, data port, valves, pipes, and cabinet frame, etc.

The pressure and temperature can be setted in the system, in the systems, we can set pressure for extractor, separtor, set temperature for extractor and separator. With Huaan BIT SFE systems, customers can control temperatures and pressures easily.

For example, in the pharmaceutical industry, it can be used for the extraction of effective ingredients of Chinese herbal medicines, the refining of heat-sensitive biological products, and the separation of lipid mixtures;

In the food industry, the extraction of hops, the extraction of pigments, etc.; in the perfume industry, natural and Refining of synthetic spices; separation of mixtures in the chemical industry, etc. Specific applications can be divided into the following aspects:

  1. Extract biologically active molecules from medicinal plants, extract and separate alkaloids;
  2. Lipids from different microorganisms, or used for the recovery of lipids, or to remove lipids from glycosides and proteins;
  3. Anti-cancer substances are extracted from various plants, especially paclitaxel is obtained from the bark and branches of Taxus to prevent cancer;
  4. Vitamins, mainly the extraction of vitamin E;
  5. Purify various active substances (natural or synthetic) to remove unnecessary molecules (such as removing pesticides from vegetable extracts) or “dregs” to obtain purified products;
  6. Processing various natural antibacterial or antioxidant extracts, such as basil, string red, thyme, garlic, onion, chamomile, chili powder, licorice and fennel seeds, etc.

Huaan supercritical CO2 extraction system configuration

Huaan Supercritical fluid extraction equipment can be divided into three major categories.

Pilot scale supercritical CO2 extractor

P-25D supercritical CO2 extraction machine

Usually after lab-scale extraction tests, generally scale-up tests are used to find the best extraction process (pressure, time, temperature), then we will need large-capacity extraction equipment;

Meanwhile, the pilot scale is also suitable for small production capacity For enterprise applications, their configuration is very flexible, and can even take into account the laboratory scale.

Such as P-11 supercritical CO2 extraction machine, which consists of 5LBS and 0.5lbs extraction kettles to form an supercritical CO2 extraction system, which can be used for small-scale experiments or 5LBS mass production Produce high-value essential oils (Essential oil extraction equipment).

The model we recommend is: PF-25D supercritical CO2 extraction machine, equipped with fractionation columns (Supercritical fluid fractionation, SFF), they are used in many factories to extract pigments and oils (such as chili oil and chili red in Thailand) at the same time, and they are also in Yunnan, China.

Some small and medium-sized factories are used for the extraction of CBD Oil (special supercritical fluid fractionation process.

At the end of the extraction process, we filter a lot of wax and chlorophyll to obtain golden hemp extract. In the later winterization and molecular distillation process Save labor and equipment costs).
