Hello all,
My name is Ryan Heffner, and today I am showing you our newest regulator, designed specifically for Supercritical fluid setups using supercritical CO2 as the process fluid. In this video, I will demonstrate how this regulator can be used for many different supercritical setups and prevent valve freezing and blocking, which has plagued traditional control valves from being used in this type of work. The setup I show in the video has a reactor volume with some basil leaves in it, which produces a very strong basil smell when the supercritical CO2 and basil plant oil leave the regulator. Additionally, adding water to the system creates even more ice, which demonstrates our valves anti-blockage capabilities for supercritical fluid systems.
