HPEA 500

The Lab High-Pressure Extraction-Adsorption Unit

is designed for process development and parameter studies. Solid material is placed inside the extractor. Substances extracted by a solvent like compressed CO2 in this first stage pass a second stage of reaction/conversion or adsorption that takes place at independant pressure /temperature conditions. The process may be conducted in a single passing or cycle modus.
