SFE Supercritical Fluid Extraction SFE is an alternative compared to the classic separation systems like fractionated distillation, steam current distillation, solvent extraction or thermal desorption. SFE can be applied to systems on a different scale: from … [Read more...] about SFE Supercritical Fluid Extraction
CO2 phase diagram – States of matter CO2 isn’t a liquid at room pressure: it is a gas.In the picture here on the right, taken from The Engineering ToolBox, the equilibrium curve is the colored one between the triple point and the critical point.The Triple Point is … [Read more...] about CO2 phase diagram – States of matter
Is CO2 polar or nonpolar? The supercritical fluid commonly utilized is carbon dioxide (CO2). The state diagram of CO2 visualizes the various phases (solid, liquid, gas) depending on pressure and temperature. CO2, at 31,1°C and 73,8 bar, is in its supercritical state, in which there is no … [Read more...] about Is CO2 polar or nonpolar?
What is a supercritical fluid? A supercritical fluid is any substance at temperature and pressure above its critical point. It can diffuse through solids like a gas, and it can dissolve materials like a liquid. In addition, close to the critical point, small … [Read more...] about What is a supercritical fluid?

Supercritical Fluid Fractionation For Fractionation it is meant the separation of one or more components (from a mixture) with the employment of a miscible or immiscible solvent, thanks to a favorable repartition coefficient of the solute. The repartition … [Read more...] about Supercritical Fluid Fractionation
ESE Enhanced Solvent Extraction Supercritical Carbon dioxide is a great solvent for apolar substances. Our compressed water and carbon dioxide extraction system allows the extraction of polar substances. The action of carbon dioxide is to Permeate Matrices, coadiuvating water’s solvent action. … [Read more...] about ESE Enhanced Solvent Extraction
Supercritical CO2 Solubility Supercritical CO2 extraction process depends by CO2 solubility. Particularly is “geometrically variable”. A supercritical fluid is any compound at a temperature and pressure above its Critical Point.It can diffuse through solids like a gas, and it can dissolve … [Read more...] about Supercritical CO2 Solubility
