Innovative Technique in Agro Processing: Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SCFE)

Innovations in food processing industry are comparatively slow, as safety and quality are always the primary concerns. Supercritical Fluid Extraction System from Cybernetik fulfills these criteria and provides a safe and profitable solution for the agro-processing industry.

What is Supercritical Fluid Extraction process?
SCFE is one of the recent techniques used for agro processing. It is used primarily for decaffeination of tea / coffee, fractionation of polymeric materials, and extraction of oils, oleoresins, flavours, fats, spices and many other ingredients.

When a substance is heated and pressurised above its critical point, it transforms into its supercritical state, where it is neither liquid nor gas. In this particular state, a substance can effuse through solids like a gas and dissolve materials like a liquid. Thus, it becomes a powerful medium for extraction of ingredients from raw materials.

Why CO2 is a preferred fluid for SCFE process?
Carbon dioxide in its supercritical state is non-toxic, non-flammable and chemically inert. It also provides higher extraction efficiency and is ideal for high value extracts. There is no need for solvent removal. As CO2 is considered safe for humans, it is a preferred supercritical fluid in agro and food processing.

Why use SCFE system from Cybernetik?
Cybernetik’s SCFE system provides higher extraction efficiency, high product purity, consistent product quality and prolonged product shelf life. It is easy to clean and maintain and significantly reduces the operating costs. The system uses USFDA approved process for extraction of ingredients from organic raw materials in agro-processing industry.

The system consists of high pressure and heating system, where liquid CO2 is transformed into supercritical CO2. The supercritical CO2 is mixed with the raw material in the extraction vessel. The mixture is further transported into gas-liquid separation chamber, where supercritical CO2 transforms into gas and is easily separated from the extract. This gas CO2 can be conveniently reused for further process.

Using Cybernetik SCFE systems can offer several other benefits in your industry. Know more about SCFE system and other agro-processing solutions from Cybernetik.
