Supercritical carbon dioxide(SC-CO2)dyeing technology, an environmentally benign and commercial available technology, has many advantages with the low power consumption, minimum waste, easy operation and short process. However, due to the high-pressure equipment and high investment cost, it is important for developing and spreading of this technology to design and manufacture the suitable equipment for SC-CO2 dyeing process. The progress of research and manufacture of supercritical CO2 fluid dyeing equipment in recent 20 years was summarized in this article. The key equipments and technologies were highlighted. The prospect of supercritical CO2 dyeing equipment was also discussed.
