Supercritical CO2

Extraction Systems Technology Research & Development

The Future of Extraction Technology

The most powerful & advanced extraction systems in the known universe

Extractors Small to Large

From Lab to Industrial Scale

Offering the widest range of supercritical CO2 extraction systems in the world and a powerful network of industry knowledge & experience at your disposal, joining the HIGHTECH community connects you to the leaders of supercritical extraction technology. From Lab Scale tabletop extraction systems for research & development, workhorse Production Scale systems, or Industrial Scale extraction systems capable of extracting thousands of pounds a day.

Supercritical Fluid Network

HIGHTECH Extracts is the official North American distributor of SuperCritical Fluid Network (SCFN) Supercritical CO2 extraction systems.

Founded in 1995, this group of physicists, pharmaceutical scientists, engineers, & industrial manufacturers comprises a global network supply chain that has sought to lead the charge in understanding & perfecting the incredible power of supercritical fluid extraction.

The founders of this group spent years researching and traveling the globe in search of the best methods of extraction know to man, what they found was Supercritical CO2. A stable, natural, & non-toxic solvent which allows for pharmaceutical grade extraction with pinpoint accuracy & control.

Extraction System Families

Lab Scale Extraction Systems

Lab Scale Supercritical CO2 Extraction Systems machines are designed to test material and procedures on a small scale to later be used on a large scale with larger capacity extraction systems. These systems come with all the same software & automation as larger systems.

These systems range from 1.7L up to 12L.

Throughput capability per day: 4-60lbs

Production Scale Extraction Systems

Production Scale Supercritical CO2 Extraction Systems are designed for medium volumes of raw material with a small footprint. These systems are compact and easy to use.

These systems range from Dual 7L up to Triple 73L

Throughput capability per day: 20-635lbs

Industrial Scale Extraction Systems

Industrial Scale Supercritical CO2 Extraction Systems are designed for large volumes of raw material with a larger footprint. Easily deployed & still completely automated.

These systems range from Dual 120L to the Infinitely Scalable Hexad 580L (MODULEX).

Throughput capability per day: 440-10560lbs


Introducing our brand new Industrial Series supercritical CO2 extraction system, MODULEX. Employing sophisticated design, our machines are modular & infinitely scalable. Quickly deployed and easily integrated, our systems are ready for any application at any scale.

Single Module - Throughput/Day

The Future of Extraction is Safe, Clean, & Measured

Benefits of CO2 Supercritical Fluid Extraction


Our wide temperature and pressure processing window allows extreme selectivity and the production of an array of higher quality extracts.


CO2 is non-toxic, non- flammable and naturally occurring, which minimizes environmental impact and lowers acquisition/disposal costs.

Health & Safety

CO2 is generally recognized as safe by the FDA, making it the ideal solvent for food and medical extracts.


CO2 extraction makes highly efficient use of electricity and requires no additional energy for CO2 solvent removal.
