Use of the verb “extract” with the adverb “as”

Can I use the verb “extract” with the adverb “as”?

My example would be the following sentence:

A reference type is extracted as an EClassifier.

Is this sentence correct? The context is that I describe a model extraction process where every reference type leads to an EClassifier in the extracted model (technical paper).

Answer

Since you are discussing a transformation, “as”, is correct.
If you were discussing the removal of a constituent from a conglomerate, you would use, “from”.
