Technology

Subcritical water extraction.

More information on this technology is available on our website here.

 

What is this equipment used for ?

The new pilot unit ExSub 2.0 consists in extracting active ingredients from solid natural ingredients, using water as a solvent.

Thanks to its subcritical state, when water is brought to a high-temperature pressure, it acquires an interesting property that brings it closer to the properties of organic solvents such as methanol or acetone for the extraction of specific active ingredients. By replacing these dangerous and polluting solvents, the subcritical water makes the extraction more environment-friendly and safer for its users.

 

In conclusion

With WiNatLab, you can conduct a test with this new 30L pilot unit (26 bar – 225°C).
