Pilot Plants

Applied Separations, Inc. offers SCF systems in any size and configuration. Although the size of a pilot system versus a production system is arbitrary, customarily, Applied Separations designates pilot systems as having extraction/reaction vessels from 5 liters to 80 liters. Greater than 80 liters, we consider production scale.


Applied Separations, Inc. will work with you one-on-one to design your custom, multipurpose, movable pilot plant/small production system. The system may be as straight forward as a manual system having one extractor vessel and venting to atmosphere to an automated system having multiple extraction/reaction vessels with multiple separators, recycling the CO2
