There is a wide range of possibilities for the high-pressure treatment of natural products. We can extract solids like plants for perfume industry (lavender, roses, jasmine…) and for food industry (vitamins, antioxidants, aromas…) as well as fractionation of liquid raw materials (unsaturated fatty acids separation) and elimination of dangerous materials like pesticides and allergens. According to clients request ER INGENIERIE is able to provide initial feasibility study or design and manufacture an equipment or do the complete process (from initial idea to the machine implementation).
Cosmetic industry is continuously progressing for more than 40 years. Still today, this sector is constantly researching new products and processes so as to enrich their consumer product line.
It’s in this context that ER INGENIERIE offers a large range of equipments dedicated to these applications.
The techniques of extraction, pulverization, micro-encapsulation by means of high pressure fluids lead to new possibilities for drug manufacturing (galenic).
Complementary to classical processes like coacervation, spray-drying, evaporation, fluidized bed, the processes based on supercritical fluids use permit to achieve better performances in terms of biodisponibility of the active product. Same remark for APIs encapsulation.
High pressure applications can be used in many different industrial domains like micro-electronics, metallurgy, construction building, plastics, lubricants… In parallel, significant progress were made on recycling field (phthalates) and in environmental cleanup (soils, sewage). Adapted equipments are already available.
