The Waters Bio-Botanical Extraction System is a multi-vessel supercritical fluid extraction system ideally suited to rapidly and automatically extract large quantities of desired components from a multitude of botanical matrices.
Unlike alternative extraction techniques, Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SFE) provides pure, solvent-free extracts by utilizing carbon dioxide. SFE is a green alternative to solvent-based extraction techniques. The properties of a supercritical fluid can be altered by varying the pressure and temperature, allowing selective extraction. The low viscosity of supercritical carbon dioxide allows it to penetrate into the material more easily while its diffusivity allows for faster extractions. CO2 is an environmentally friendly solvent that leaves no residue.

As the botanical industry rapidly expands, it's important to stay competitive, especially when it comes to extracting bioactive compounds from crops. If you're using liquid carbon dioxide for cleaner, more efficient extractions, you're already on your way. Some may think the next step is to get the biggest extraction equipment to meet increasing demand. Well, not quite. With Waters you can extract the same amount of material as those bigger systems in a fraction of the time. Learn how using the latest extraction technologies from Waters can consistently deliver the highest yield and quality from your botanical extracts.
