FT110X Benchtop Rapid Extractor

 

FT110X Benchtop Rapid Extractor

The Armfield FT110X Benchtop Rapid Extractor is used to extract the active constituents from small (<1 litre) samples of materials.

This single piston pressure system gives rapid results from small volumes while giving flexibility to the operator with the processing parameters. The three phases of operation are pressurisation, relaxation and dynamic percolation. This forces the solution into the biomass, dissolves the active ingredient and recovers the solution into a separate vessel.

Description

The Armfield FT110X uses high pressure and a combination of both static and dynamic extraction phases to achieve a rapid extraction of the active materials with minimum degradation to the product. In the dynamic phases, the solvent is passed through the material providing a forced percolation and agitation.

The process pressure, number of cycles and length of each phase are programmable by the user. In this way the effect of the extraction parameters on the end product can be explored and an optimum set of parameters determined for each product.
The FT110X vessel is loaded with solvent and primed manually. A single pneumatic piston is used to generate the pressure in the vessel and to provide the solvent percolation using a novel system of valves.
