Supercritical Fluid (SCF) Systems
Supercritical Fluid (SCF) technology works! With today's innovative,
easy-to-use systems from Applied Separations, your idea will be tomorrow's
green process! No petroleum solvents and no toxic residue.
We have built thousands of SFE systems. Get the benefit of our experience. You have the ideas, we have the SFE systems - from conception to production. From laboratory systems to pilot plants to large scale production facilities.
Applications and process support? We have been involved in hundreds of uses for supercritical fluids. Discuss your ideas with us. We’ll evaluate your samples for free.
A few examples include:
- Extracting herbs, spices and fragrances
- Extraction of pharmaceuticals / nutraceuticals
- Extracting nicotine and caffeine
- Extraction from foods
- Dyeing textiles
- Cleaning medical implants
- Making nanoparticles
- Drying aerogels
- Cleaning wafers
- Developing photoresists
- Extraction from polymers
- Impregnation of biopolymers
Our support doesn't stop with the delivery of a system, we can help you bring your development ideas to full scale production.

It's Easy Being Green!
Carbon dioxide is one of the most commonly used supercritical fluids.
- Readily available
- An ideal substitute for many hazardous and toxic solvents
CO2 is not produced in the the SCF process. Existing CO2 is merely used. There is NO addition to any greenhouse effect.
What is Supercritical CO2?
Applied Separations offers a full line of SFE systems to meet the needs in your laboratory.
Applied Separations has the instruments you need in your laboratory to handle the most complex to the most straight-forward SCF projects.
Pilot Plants: Small Production
The basic supercritical pilot plant is a "no frills" caster-mounted system for the budgetminded. You, as the user, determine the size of the system...
Industrial Scale Production
Applied Separations will work with you to pin-point your needs and determine the feasibility of your project.
Metal Injection Molding
Supercritical Fluids will revolutionize the debinding process.
Not only do we offer SCF instruments, but a full line of accessories the customize your SCF instruments are also available.
