Apeks Supercritical Technical Sheet – Cold Separation

July 12, 2016

Check out our latest Tech Sheet on Cold Separation.  Cold separation during Supercritical and Subcritical CO2 Fluid Extractions (SCFE) has been shown to improve retention of THC-A and minimize thermal degradation compared to other systems that apply significant amounts of heat to the separator/collection vessel.

All Apeks Supercritical systems utilize gas pumping which allows the separator to operate at a lower pressure and subsequently at a lower temperature.  Yes, pumping gas requires a larger pump compared to pumping liquid, however it is a better option to preserve the precious oils that are being extracted!
