Natural fat-soluble bioactive compound extraction systems

Supercritical and subcritical extraction

 

Carbon dioxide extraction

Supercritical and/or subcritical extraction is a process used to obtain extracts and other substances using gases which are under super- or subcritical conditions. Supercritical gases have all the physical properties of gases, but they are incompressible and possess the same dissolving power as liquids.

The advantage of supercritical extraction is that pressure and temperature changes influence the dissolving power, which means the extraction process can be adapted to obtain specific substances from the collective matrix. This method is used in the production of bioactive compounds from herbs and other plants, where a high degree of extract purity is required, especially in the pharmaceutical and food industry. It is most known for its use in the production of hemp paste, as well as decaffeinated coffee and tea.

This method is considered environmentally friendly, as it doesn’t create any unwanted or harmful side products.

MoSES system

At Škrlj d.o.o. we always try to further develop and upgrade the supercritical extraction system and its equipment to better fit our customers' needs and facilitate its use. For this purpose we have developed the Škrlj MoSES system, which is used for the sub- and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of natural and organic bioactive compounds.

  • modular design
  • entirely automatic system
  • certified and tested in accordance with EU standards

The entire system is supported by a compact frame with an electrical cabinet, as well as a gas supply and pressure regulation system, while the extraction modules can be varied.

We offer laboratory systems with two or three collection vessels (1, 2 or 5 liters), which can operate in parallel or sequential mode. Additionally, we manufacture semi-industrial and industrial systems with two or three extraction vessels (10 or 25 liters). Customer requests are always taken into consideration and, if possible, implemented and developed into unique technological solutions.

  • All extraction processes are carried out under supercritical conditions. One of the conditions for reaching the supercritical state is establishing a suitable supercritical temperature. MoSES systems are equipped with built-in automatically controlled heating elements, which are used to achieve and regulate the supercritical temperature and enable extraction at temperatures up to 80 °C.
