Sunday, November 19th, 2017 von admin

Carbon dioxide is used particularly in the food, beverage, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industry for extracting natural substances, aromas, fats, oils, waxes, polymers, enzymes and colourants in their supercritical physical state. For despite its bad reputation as a greenhouse gas, CO2 is a natural and environmentally-friendly solvent which has advantages over synthetic and harmful media such as n-hexane when it comes to sustainability.

Oscillating displacement pumps are ideal for supercritical CO2 extraction.
