Extratex bring together the know-how of supercritical process development within the know-how of equipment engineering and manufacturing to deliver the most efficient machine.

High productivity from 1 to 1500 T/year.

Standard or taylor-made equipment designed according to scale-up from experimental results.

Pre-engineering to determine best design and cost estimation (OPEX / CAPEX) can be advised.

Most famous applications :

  • Solid extraction
  • Liquid fractionation (column)
  • Impregnation
  • Particle spraying

According to its expertise, Extratex can advice the client or its product development phase.

Pre-processing (drying, sorting, grinding) and post-processing ( water removing, dewaxing, decoloration, etc.) need also to be taken into consideration.
