CO2 Supercritical / Subcritical

Supercritical CO2 is becoming an important commercial and industrial solvent due to its role in chemical extraction in addition to its low toxicity and environmental impact. The relatively low temperature of the process and the stability of CO2 also allows most compounds to be extracted with little damage or denaturing.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF STEPS INVOLVED

PRE-PROCESSING

Sorted material, decarbed in drying oven, typically milled or trim material, packed mesh socks, weighed, logged in inventory, and queued into storage freezer.

Considerations regarding the use of large throughput milling equipment would be advised based off expected throughput ranges.

INITIAL EXTRACTION

Transfer solvents into material vessels, increase PSI according to established SOP, this can vary depending on input material criteria, and other variances such as the targeted yield derivative.

WINTERIZATION

This process is considered a potential bottleneck, and we encourage you to access our resources to mitigate this processing interval.

We have several solutions scaling wide to accommodate quick processing of the winterization stage.

SOLVENT RECOVERY

Typically achieved most efficiently with evaporation, we have unique solutions to improve recovery time drastically, contact us today!

POST-PROCESSING

Collected crude can undergo a Decarboxylation process at this time if not completed prior in pre-processing, followed by fractionating to separate compounds into greater purity.
