Video: Blockage Resistance for SuperCritical CO2 Applications

Critical Back Pressure Control

  • Equilibar supercritical CO2 blockage resistant

Equilibar announces its new patent-pending BR1 Blockage Resistance Series aimed at supercritical applications such as CO2 extraction. The video linked below shows how the new design expels ice and resists blockage, even at high flow rates with Joules Thompson cooling effects. During the buildup and expulsion of ice, the pressure is maintained in a very stable range.

Equilibar BPRs have been used for many supercritical CO2 applications in research applications around the world. Our diaphragm design is known to be tolerant of two-phase flow and phase-change. For higher supercritical flow rates, however, our new BR Series allows for higher flow rates found in super-critical extraction.

See 7 minute video below. (Note: ice expulsion can be found around 4:00):

Meeting the challenges of vacuum holding applications

Vacuum technology is commonly used to hold objects in place for processing or positioning. Vacuum table, vacuum conveyor and vacuum pick-and-place operations are examples of this type of application. In most vacuum holding applications, flow rate and pressure vary significantly during start-up and when disruptions occur in the manufacturing process. While some vacuum applications are Read More
