Core | Reaction Core Separations
Supercritical fluids (SCF) are not just good in extraction and separation processes. Their unique properties give rise to several different applications such as chemical reaction and particle size formation.
The Core | Reaction systems have been designed to harness the power of supercritical fluids to either explore SCF as an alternative solvent in chemical transformations or in the formation of nano and micro-sized particles to improve dissolution of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) for example utilising either the rapid expansion of supercritical solution (RESS) techniques or supercritical anti-solvent method (SAS).

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Whether it be a cyclone separator or a cold trap controlling the pressure inside these vessels can aid in collection or in the case of multi cyclone systems result in selective fraction of the extraction feed. By modifying the pressure and temperature in each separator the density can be accurately control to favour the precipitation of some components over other. The manual back pressure regulators facilitate the control of the pressure in each of the separators.

05. Core | Pre-Heater

Core | Reaction Core Separations
The pre-heater is located just after the pump to control the temperature of the CO2 reaching the extractor. It ensures the CO2 entering the extraction vessel is already at the extraction temperature ensuring a controlled extraction process.

02. Core | Flow Meter

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Addition of a flow meter improves delivery accuracy by adjusting the flow to compensate for changes in the CO2 feed density. Although we control the incoming temperature of the CO2 a drop in pressure from the CO2 bottle as we consume the CO2, can result in a density shift causing the pump to under deliver the CO2 to the process. The flow meter also offers additional process data to be collected in the system, such as total CO2 used.

01. Core | Flow Meter

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Although we use a liquid CO2 feed in our extraction systems, its important that the incoming CO2 remains liquid. The condenser acts to maintain the incoming temperature of the CO2 ensuring it remains a liquid during the pumping phase. Additional condensers can be added with higher flow rate pumps or the addition of a recycling unit.

03. Core | C02 Pump

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Built from the ground up using our extensive knowledge of CO2 processing the Core CO2 pumps are designed for high demand environments such as research and production. Our systems can be built to utilise our wide range of pumps allowing us to achieve flow rates between 5g/min upto 1kg/min.

07

07. Core | ABPR

Core | Reaction Core Separations

Utilising a electopneumatic back pressure regulator with our APC control mechanism we are able to automatically regulate the pressure in our extractions, maintaining pressures +/- 1 bar of the setpoint.

06

06. Core | Extraction

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Ultilising a static sprung seal we offer tool-less threaded pressure vessel, designed to withstand 1000’s cycles at 689 bar (10,000 psi). We offer a variety or volumes to meet a number of production rates, with our vessels meeting a variety of regional regulations (ASME and PED). this allows us to offer our systems all round the world.

08

08. Core | Vaporiser

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Joule-Thomson effect is observed when we go from a high pressure to a low pressure resulting in a drop in temperature. To overcome this, we use a Vaporiser to heat the CO2 exiting the ABPR. The vaporiser also helps to expand the CO2 from its liquid state into a gas in-order to help precipitate the extracted components.

09

09. Core | Cyclones

Core | Reaction Core Separations
Offering both double end and single ended cyclone designs using either standard PTFE o-rings or sprung seals our systems can accommodate either multiple cyclones for either single pot collection or multi pot fractionation.
