Spe-ed SFE-4 Supercritical System

The Spe-ed™ SFE-4 is one of the original SFEs in our series of instruments for supercritical fluid extraction. Built in conjunction with the USDA¹, these systems were designed to meet the rigorous needs of day-to-day use in the research lab. They are simple to operate, fast and affordable, with unique features not found in other SCF systems.

The Spe-ed SFE-4 oven has the capacity for up to  4 high-pressure vessels.

The system features:

  • temperatures to 240°C*
  • pressure up to 10,000 psi (690 BAR)
  • pump: up to 400mL/min flow rate**
  • independent control of flow rates to each vessel
  • vessels from 5mL to 1 liter
  • fully-adjustable, non-clogging, variable restrictors
  • parallel processing capabilities of between 1 to 4 vessels depending upon the model
  • collection into SPE cartridges or standard glassware
  • in-line trapping capabilities
  • modifier addition capability
  • multiple flow path capability
  • extract directly from liquid samples
