Supercritical Fluid Extractions in the Food Industry
Spring-Energized Seals Built to Perform Under Pressure
From the separation of lecithin from oil to the extraction of spices and decaffeination of tea or coffee, there are many types of supercritical fluid extractions in the food industry. Depending on your operations, extraction equipment may range from entry-level extractions to research-grade systems used in laboratories. No matter your operations, there is one constant: the need for seals that can offer increased durability and longevity. The use of CO2 in the extraction process can cause swelling, and spring-energized seals provide optimal pressure handling. They offer a better performance than polymer-based seals and elastomeric seal materials.
Spring-energized seals offer:
- High tolerance for frictional, temporal, pressure, or chemical resistance
- Resistance to chemical swelling when in contact with fluids or water
- Tolerance of –268° C to over 260° C (when made with PTFE)
