High Pressure Equipment's Supercritical CO2 Extraction Pump System
High Pressure Equipment Company (HiP), a subsidiary of Graco Inc., has developed the e710 supercritical CO2 extraction pump system to address market demand for an environmentally friendly extraction process used for a wide range of natural oils, foods and cannabis. The e710 pump system is specifically designed for CO2 circulation to recover 100% of the CO2 vapor when used with recovery tank cooling. HiP’s patented pump/drive technology is the industry’s first high pressure electric pump system that does not require an air compressor and uses an explosion-proof motor rated for C1D1 areas.
The e710 supercritical CO2 extraction pump system is ATEX, FM and IECEx certified and features control technology to provide a continuous 100% duty cycle for 24/7 operation with constant pressure or constant flow control. The system is designed to process liquid condensation without damage and to pull vacuum back through the pump when evacuating a system.
The pump system’s innovative electric motor requires no air compressor and since no driving air is used it cannot leak air into the system. In addition, the e710 requires no lubrication in the pump heads thereby eliminating potential contamination of product. The system’s electric pump provides for quiet operation and offers a small footprint (17.0" x 20.4" base x 58" high).
HiP’s new supercritical CO2 extraction pump system is able to stall under pressure without damage, to start against a full load and pressure, and allows for adjustable maximum pumping output pressure and flow. Three-phase and single-phase models are available, as well as a PLC control for remote operation.
