The back pressure regulator consists of a motor–driven heated valve assembly controlled by a microcontroller. The heated valve assembly compensates for cooling that occurs during depressurization and eliminates plugging. The high–strength stainless steel needle and reinforced PEEK seat have a high resistance to erosion and allow stable pressure control over a wide pressure range. A built–in pressure sensor provides closed loop feedback for pressure control. The back pressure regulator can easily be programmed using a hand held controller for stand–alone operation, or by using an RS232 port with software for advanced control features.
Over the last 20 years SciMed has been providing SFE technology into a number of different industries. We have worked with some of the pioneering providers to offer customised solutions from Thar instruments later acquired by Waters in 2012 to Separex which was created by Michel Perrut.
We have continued to develop our in-house capabilities to offer custom solutions which are integrated here in the UK. This has allowed our customers to work even closer with us to create a custom solution to their problems. Liaising with notifying bodies we create high-tech, high pressure assemblies that compile with the current PED safety legislation. All our systems are CE marked by an accredited NoB after vigorous testing.
SciMed offer some of the most advanced and up to date technologies in the field of supercritical fluids offering solutions under a range of pressures exceeding 1000 bar. Working closely with Core Separations based in Dallas we have expertise in almost every aspect of supercritical processing.
Now in 2020 we are looking to continue pushing the boundaries of the technologies to help our customers innovate.
