Flexibility of our Extraction Plants

Variable capacities of our CO₂-extraction plants, ranging from 3 Liters up to 16,000 Liters, guarantee our customers maximum flexibility in processing of their raw materials. We refine batch sizes, ranging from several kilograms at research scale, via several hundred kilograms at pilot scale, up to several thousand tons at production scale. Extraction pressures of up to 1,000 bar and temperatures from 10°C to 120°C can be applied optionally. Moreover, all units are additionally equipped with two separators, thereby offering possibility of fractionation.
