Pressurized Solvent ExtractionSource: Applied Separations, Inc.
By replacing slow traditional methods with PSE, you will not only save time and money, but will:
- Reduce solvent cost. PSE uses only 15mL of solvent per 10 gram sample
- Reduce solvent waste. Traditional methods like soxhlet and sonication can use up to 500mL of solvent per sample.
- Reduce operating costs. PSE is faster and more efficient than traditional methods.
What is Pressurized Solvent Extraction (PSE)?
Traditional extraction techniques use large amounts of solvent and require lengthy extraction periods to remove the analytes from the sample matrices. These extractions are typically conducted at low temperature and pressure conditions.
Pressurized solvent extraction uses reduced quantities of conventional solvents at elevated temperatures (50-200°C) and pressures (1,500-3,000 psi) to rapidly extract analytes from their sample matrices
