SciMed has over 20 years direct experience of Supercritical CO2 processes.
Together with our partners, SciMed can offer a complete range of systems, often tailored to suit very specific and one-off design requirements, as well as simpler entry level solutions.
All the systems provided by SciMed are modular and can therefore be modified with ease, as and when requirements change.
SciMed has supplied numerous systems for all Supercritical CO2 applications including:
vreactions in Supercritical CO2
vSFE: Supercritical Extraction solutions for solids as well as counter column systems for continuous extraction of liquids
vparticle generation using CO2 as a solvent (RESS)
vparticle generation using CO2 as an anti-solvent (SAS, OR PCA).
A typical SFE ( Supercritical Fluid Extraction) system consists of the following components:
These rigs are available at various volumes. Some rigs can be designed to allow a combination of the above named applications, all on one rig.
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 our partners, Core Separations based in Dallas and SFE process based in Nancy France 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.
SciMed’s Product Specialists can provide full customer support, including method development, contract research, service and application support.
Below are some example systems we have built:
