Supercritical and subcritical extraction
Carbon dioxide extraction
Supercritical and/or subcritical extraction is a process used to obtain extracts and other substances using gases which are under super- or subcritical conditions. Supercritical gases have all the physical properties of gases, but they are incompressible and possess the same dissolving power as liquids.
The advantage of supercritical extraction is that pressure and temperature changes influence the dissolving power, which means the extraction process can be adapted to obtain specific substances from the collective matrix. This method is used in the production of bioactive compounds from herbs and other plants, where a high degree of extract purity is required, especially in the pharmaceutical and food industry. It is most known for its use in the production of hemp paste, as well as decaffeinated coffee and tea.
This method is considered environmentally friendly, as it doesn’t create any unwanted or harmful side products.
At Škrlj d.o.o. we always try to further develop and upgrade the supercritical extraction system and its equipment to better fit our customers' needs and facilitate its use. For this purpose we have developed the Škrlj MoSES system, which is used for the sub- and supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of natural and organic bioactive compounds.
- modular design
- entirely automatic system
- certified and tested in accordance with EU standards
The entire system is supported by a compact frame with an electrical cabinet, as well as a gas supply and pressure regulation system, while the extraction modules can be varied.
We offer laboratory systems with two or three collection vessels (1, 2 or 5 liters), which can operate in parallel or sequential mode. Additionally, we manufacture semi-industrial and industrial systems with two or three extraction vessels (10 or 25 liters). Customer requests are always taken into consideration and, if possible, implemented and developed into unique technological solutions.

Green extractionThe extraction of nutrients and natural products has a long history - its origins can be traced all the way back to the ancient civilizations. At the time, the extracts were used for food, cosmetic and spiritual purposes, much like today. Today it is impossible to find a production process in the food, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, advanced materials, and chemical industries or the production of biofuels that does not include extraction processes.
From Field To Bottle: Why It Matters What Happens In Between
A company in the Vipava Valley has developed a modern and safe system, which can be used for the extraction of CBD oil.
What is supercritical CO2 extraction?Supercritical and/or subcritical extraction is a process used to obtain extracts and other substances using gases which are under super- or subcritical conditions. Each substance in the gaseous state can be converted to the supercritical state by changing the pressure and temperature. The most often used gas is carbon dioxide, as it is relatively harmless and enters the supercritical state at quite acceptable physical conditions: 31 ˚C and 74 bar(g).
Volatile hydrocarbon extractionVolatile hydrocarbon extraction is suitable for the extraction of oils, fats, and bioactive lipophilic components from plant or animal materials. This extraction method is most popular among CBD paste producers, mostly because the process is fast and the extraction device does not require advanced technological process knowledge.
Usad'ba Myskhako // Russia
USAD'BA MYSKHAKO is a young agritourism complex located south of Novorossiysk, at the foot of Myskhako Mountain in the village of Fedotovka. Their vineyards cover an area of 80 hectares and are home to several grape varieties: Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc. In 2019, Usad'ba Myskhako opened their new gravity-flow winery, which is equipped with more than seventy wine tanks and fermenters, manufactured by SK Škrlj.
