Automated Parallel Pressure Extraction of Whatever


SWING SPEEDEXTRACT

The SWING SPEEDEXTRACT uses a combination of elevated temperature with corresponding autogeneous pressure to increase the efficiency / speed of the extraction process, resulting in dramatically faster extraction times and better quality.

Robustness and ease-of-use by design

Key Advantages
  • Decrease in cost per sample up to 90+ %.
  • Increase in productivity by a factor of 10+.
  • Parallel common extraction under elevated pressure, i.e. using superheated extraction conditions.
  • Higher analyte solubility.
  • Faster analyte diffusion from matrix into solvent.
  • Decreased solvent viscosity for increased solvent penetration into the matrix.
  • Gravimetric dispensing (liquids, solids, powders, low-viscous to highly-viscous materials, waxes, etc.) into the rack / extractor format of your choice.
  • Powder dispensing / dosing robotic tool can be combined with other tools to accommodate multiple workflows.
  • 4-Needle Head for volumetric liquid handling and sampling.
  • Dispensed amount, mixing speed, temperature, pressure, time..., and other data are stored in a read only log file.
  • Easy access to data with a convenient interface to pull results into Excel or virtually any other software.
  • Interface to DOE.
Enhance your Efficiency and Productivity with our Workflow Solutions!
Speed up your extraction process and do it in minutes instead of hours!

As the extraction rate roughly doubles if the temperature is increased by 10 °C, extractions that normally take hours can be done in minutes using SWING SPEEDEXTRACT. 

Fields of application:

  • Extraction of active ingredients from plants for pharmaceutical and nutritional health science.
  • Extraction of pesticides from food samples (e.g. QuEChERS).
  • Determination of fat and fatty acids in diary products.
  • Acid digestion for characterization of sediment, sludge and soil.
  • Enforced degradation for analysis of polymer biodegradation or plasma analysis.

SPEEDEXTRACT extraction block

SPEEDEXTRACT block for 12, 24, 48 or 96 vial plates (or customized formats).

Key Features:

  • Up to 100 bar operating pressure at up to 250 °C.
  • Heating / cooling and shaking.
  • Automated closing / opening combined with transfer tool for e.g. transport of vials and extraction plates.
  • Extraction time reduced from hours down to minutes.
  • Safer and cleaner than using microwave.
  • Higher pressure compared to microwave ovens (reactors) results in significant extraction rate acceleration in parallel and disposable formats.
