super-critical-extractionSupercritical carbon dioxide is a fluid state of carbon dioxide where it is held at or above its critical temperature and critical pressure.

Carbon dioxide usually behaves as a gas in air at standard temperature and pressure (STP), or as a solid called dry ice when frozen. If the temperature and pressure are both increased from STP to be at or above the critical point for carbon dioxide, it can adopt properties midway between a gas and a liquid. More specifically, it behaves as a supercritical fluid above its critical temperature (304.25 K, 31.10 °C, 87.98 °F) and critical pressure (72.9 atm, 7.39 MPa, 1,071 psi), expanding to fill its container like a gas but with a density like that of a liquid.

Supercritical CO2 is becoming an important commercial and industrial solvent due to its role in chemical extraction in addition to its low toxicity and environmental impact. The relatively low temperature of the process and the stability of CO2 also allows most compounds to be extracted with little damage or denaturing. In addition, the solubility of many extracted compounds in CO2 vary with pressure, permitting selective extractions.

Features. Extraction Contraption Pro System CO2 Plant Essence Extractor.. The Extraction Contraption Pro System harnesses the sub-zero temperatures of dry ice sublimation along with centrifugal force to produce plant essence in a fraction of the time of traditional processes.. There is no water or harsh chemicals used during the extraction process.. In fact our process actually removes much of the plants natural moisture.. The final essence is a fine dry powder.. The Extraction Contraption Pro System is constructed of high quality stainless steel and has an optional compactor so you can process and package your plant extraction quickly and easily.. Plant processing times vary.. Hardy small mass plants like pine can take up to 45 minutes.. rosemary takes approximately 30 minutes while lavender can be processed in about 10 to 15 minutes.. The Extraction Contraption Pro System is 100 food grade and is ideal for edibles medicines and other plant essence products meant for human consumption.. It can also be used to produce lotions soaps scents and other non-edible plant essence products.
