Hightech Extractors Employ Adaptive Automation

Automation is a generic term, and all systems can be described as “automatic” in some way. We believe automation is more than just simple control over pressure, flow and temperature settings.

Our Adaptive Automation process is a new hardware/software system that is able to change the extraction cycle in real time as requested by the operator. The system’s “intelligence” allows the operator to run the extraction process automatically as detailed in the recipe, or interact manually while the system is in automatic mode, changing parameters and conditions in real time.

adaptive automationWe have created an integrated hardware and software control system that provides the operator with the power to adjust all aspects of the multi-step extraction process: pressure, flow, temperature, depressurization and processing time. Our supercritical CO2 extractors allow you to zero in on and extract specific compounds with just a few simple adjustments.

Fine-tune the solubility of supercritical CO2 to safely and efficiently extract only the desired compound from your source material. No other system gives you this level of Precision Automation.

NO WINDOWS BASED SOFTWARE!

No virus issues, no Meltdown or Spectre vulnerabilities to deal with. Our software is classified “mission critical” and based on WxWorks OS, an incredibly stable and robust military-grade operating system.

SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) is a type of industrial control system (ICS). Industrial control systems are computer-controlled systems that monitor and control industrial processes that exist in the physical world. SCADA systems historically distinguish themselves from other ICS systems by being large scale processes that can include multiple sites, and large distances. These processes include industrial, infrastructure, and facility-based processes.

A SCADA control is always connected to a human–machine interface (HMI). The HMI displays data to a human operator and provides the interface through which the human operator controls the process.

The HMI is usually linked to the SCADA system’s databases and software programs to provide trending, diagnostic data, and management information such as scheduled maintenance procedures, logistic information, detailed schematics for a particular sensor or machine, and expert-system troubleshooting guides.
