Supercritical Fluid Extraction and Processing
Deven Supercriticals Pvt. Ltd offer tailor made Pilot and Commercial scale Supercritical Fluid (SCF) Processing plants. We undertake turnkey assignments and help from 'concept to commissioning' for the venture, in field of Supercritical Fluid (SCF) Processing of natural materials including Extraction / Fractionation and Purification / upgradation. Other areas of SCF processing include Particle design (micronization), Sterilization (Preservation), Precision cleaning, Textile dyeing and Reactions. Deven Supercriticals Pvt. Ltd. (DSPL) was founded and promoted by Dr. Swapneshu Baser who is recipient of many awards / recognitions for his contribution in SCFE technology development and successful commercialization. Deven Supercriticals Pvt. Ltd., as the name suggests has been very focused on and dedicated to, the area of 'Supercritical Fluid' processing. Over the years DSPL has taken up challenges to successfully design, manufacture and supply wide range of SCF processing equipment along with complete technical support for process / product development, process optimization and efficient operation of the plant. DSPL has been able to successfully compete and contribute in the international market with ‘Seventeen’ numbers of SCFE plants been manufactured and supplied between year 2000 to 2008.
Area of Application: - Spice Extracts (Oil & Oleoresin) - Flavors & Fragrances - Natural Food Colors - Food Preservatives (antioxidants) - Herbal Medicines (Nutraceuticals) - Natural Pesticides (E.G. Neem) - Decaffeination (Coffee & Tea) - Hop Extracts (Bitter) - Deoiling Of Fast Foods - Cholesterol- Free Food Products - Nicotine - Controlled Tobacco - Particle design (micronization) - Sterilization (Preservation) - Precision cleaning

Advantages: SCFE process has inbuilt features, which improve the quality of extracts Superior Product : - Undegraded extracts with delicacy and freshness close to natural - High concentration of desired active components Preserving the synergistic bio-activity of molecules in the extract - No residual solvent - Free of biological (microbial) contaminants - Longer shelf life Superior Process : - Simultaneous fractionation of extract possible to get spice oil and oleoresin in a single step - Flexible operating conditions for multiple product extraction - Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is used as solvent that is: Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) for food products Thus the concentrated extracts obtained from SCFE truly preserve and represent the desired goodness present in natural raw materials. This aspect also vastly increases the application potential of natural molecules in processed foods, medicines (Nutraceuticals), convenience products etc. Over the last few decades, Supercritical Fluid Extraction (SCFE) Technology has emerged as a superior alternative to the conventional techniques (solvent extraction or steam distillation etc). However, there is still a very large potential for the use of SCFE to achieve better value addition and to generate preference for quality natural products, as compared to the traditionally processed natural products that may undergo degradation during conventional processing steps, due to incorporation of heat, oxidation, hydrolysis etc. Further, We have carried out a detailed feasibility study for SCFE based on existing price of spice oil and oleoresins (prices that of extracts from hexane extraction and steam distillation). SCFE shows a good profitability even without considering premium that may be obtained due to its better quality products. This justifies the investment and on long term perspective makes SCFE a preferred route.
