HERBAL EXTRACTION PLANT
Herbal extraction is a complicated procedure due to complex nature of plants and herbs. The most useful ingredients are present in form of organic compounds in different parts of the plants. Extraction of each compound depends on the solubility of the rich components in medium of extraction.
These medium can be water, organic solvents and their mixtures etc. We use scientific principles of solubility and physical separation to extract a particular compound. The plant design and procedure of extraction for every product and component is different for each compound. It involves a number of procedures to extract isolated compounds from the herbs & other raw materials. The primary step can be generalized where compounds are extracted using an extraction media. The secondary step involves purification and separation by many physical and chemical processes. From a general process of extraction, all the rich herbal extracts can be utilized directly for herbal, food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Some of these extracts can also be used as natural dyes for leather, food, cosmetic and textiles for providing colors to them.
