An Important Upgrade to the SFT-150 is a Fully Integrated Waterless Chilling Technology to Cool CO2 Liquid Prior to Pumping

Developed to investigate the application of supercritical fluid techniques to various analyses and processing situations, the Supercritical Fluid Technologies' Improved  Supercritical Fluid Extraction System SFT-150 SFE is a full capability, research-grade extractor. The SFT-150 is a versatile SFE, providing an excellent platform for process development.

One new and important upgrade to the SFT-150 is a fully integrated waterless chilling technology to cool the CO2 liquid prior to pumping.  External cooling baths are no longer required. A new back pressure regulator for very precise CO2 flow control is another improvement. 

The SFT-150 SFE’s modular design makes it easy and cost effective to alter the basic configuration, adapting it to meet new or evolving application needs. The SFT-150’s stainless steel vessel is capable of containing supercritical fluids at pressures up to 10,000 psi. The SFT-150 may be configured with hand-tight sample vessels ranging in capacity from 100 ml to 2 liters. Vessels are user interchangeable for maximum versatility. In addition, an optional co-solvent module can be added to the SFT-150.
