Tested Raw Materials
Product R&D is continuously carried out for our customers in our pilot plant. Several hundred tests were performed in the recent years.
Research & Development Units
- 5 liters/1000 bar, also available with liquid-liquid column
- 8 liters, up to 1000 bar
- 100 liters, up to 550 bar
Other dimensions and design pressures are available upon request.
Each plant is usually equipped with 2 separators for fractionated separation.
All plants can be supplied with a co-solvent system if required.
Design highlights of lab scale R&D units and pilot plants are:
- Closed CO2 cycle with high flow
- Quick opening closures on extractor and first separator
- Industrial valves (no freezing)
- Death space free instrumentation for easy cleaning
- Industrial automation & control system (same as on industrial plants)
- Low inside surface roughness in extractors and separators for easy cleaning
- Secured by safety valves
- Safety design according HAZOP study with notified body
- CE certificate of conformity for complete plant
- Lifetime design & calculation for cyclic load (designed for 40.000 extraction cycles)
