Apeks Supercritical The Bambino®

 

The Bambino® is equipped with the energy-efficient Apeks Diaphragm Compressor Technology which allows for cold separation processing and delivers 20 to 50% faster extractions with less power. Fully automated, The Bambino® extraction system provides both subcritical and supercritical CO2 extractions in a compact design. 95% CO2 gas recovery minimizes operational costs. Especially well-suited for start-up companies and/or product testing and R&D.

 

System Highlights

  • Processes approximately 10-14 pounds of dried, ground in a 24 hour period.
  • Fully automated
  • Energy-efficient
  • Closed loop system recovers 95% of the CO2.
  • Faster extractions and cold separation processing w/ Diaphragm Compressor Technology.
  • Valveless Expansion Technology (no clogging).
  • Smaller and lighter than The Transformer®
  • Multiple power options: 1-phase 230V or 3-phase 208v, 230v, 460v.
  • Our Industrial Control panels are UL Listed!

 

System Specifications:

Extraction Vessel 

  • Comes standard with 5-liter vessel. This system is not expandable to additional sizes.
  • Volume – 5L vessel holds up to 3 pounds of dry, ground material
  • Pressure – maximum pressure = 2000 psi (137 bar
  • Temperature – max 160ºF (71ºC)
  • Materials – 304 stainless steel. Vessel interior is polished to food grade level
  • Closures – Hammer Union (commonly used in oil and gas industry for temporary piping), top with integral hinge
  • Sealing mechanism – spring energized cup seal
  • Filter – integral filters on closure heads. 20 micron.
  • Temperature measurement – internal K type thermocouple senses actual extraction temperature
  • Safety – non-isolable spring loaded safety relief valve prevents accidental over-pressurization

CO2 Recirculation Pump

  • Electric motor driven diaphragm compressor
  • Flowrate – 0.4-0.8 kg/min
  • Construction – hydraulically actuated diaphragm
  • Materials – all wetted parts are 316 stainless steel
  • Safety – non-isolable spring loaded safety relief valve prevents accidental over-pressurization

 

Separators

  • 1 separator bank
  • Pressure – Maximum pressure = 600 psi (41 bar)
  • Temperature – max 160ºF (71ºC)
  • Materials – 304 stainless steel
  • Closures – FDA sanitary style bolted
  • Sealing mechanism – sanitary gasket, cured silicone
  • Safety – non-isolable spring loaded safety relief valve prevents
  • accidental over-pressurization

 

Separation Mechanism

  • Valveless Expansion Technology (VET) – flow path from extractor to 1st separator is continuous diameter with no constrictions. Separation occurs in 1st separator utilizing centrifugal separation and depressurization.

 

Heat Exchangers

  • Construction – tube in tube style
  • Materials – 304 stainless steel
  • Cooling/Heating media – water

 

Chiller/Heater

  • Recirculating chiller/heater
  • Temperature range: -10ºC to 50ºC (14ºF to 158ºF)
  • System operating range 60ºF-140ºF

 

Control System

  • Functions – Fully automatic Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) touch screen interface with first level safety functionality and user programmable pressure, temperature and time. Also has built in hour and maintenance timers, and alarm log.
  • Safety – pressure transducers monitor system pressure and shut down system to prevent accidental over-pressurization
  • Data acquisition
  • Push alerts for system messaging
  • UL-508A listed
