Our client, an industrialist developing new scents for the high-end perfume industry, was extracting the compounds by heating and solvent, which caused changes to the chemical composition of certain temperature-sensitive products.
Our customer has very high expectations when it comes to preserving all the properties of the essential oils extracted.
They were looking for a solution to reduce the heating temperature and duration, as well as lowering the use of solvent, to extract the precious essential oils used in some fragrances.
SAIREM’s microwave assisted extraction (MAE) solution, the Labotron mini, combines microwave with traditional solvent extraction when necessary.
The selective heating properties of the microwave increase the kinetics of extraction, improve the yield of the process, and reduce the processing time and temperature. It leads to an improved preservation of the chemical composition of the essential oils.Contact us
Microwave processing of organic food & cosmetics
As part of the development of organic farming and cosmetics, many manufacturers are faced with bans on the preservative ingredients, preparation, and storage processes of their products. In this context, microwaves and radio frequencies provide totally safe and technically efficient responses.
Industrial scale continuous microwave-assisted plants extraction
Microwave-assisted extraction offers many advantages over conventional techniques such as shorter extraction time, lower solvent use, and higher extraction rates. As an expert, SAIREM offers environment-friendly extractions solutions from batch laboratory scale to continuous industrial scale for plants, flowers …
