Mini Columns are used to closely mimic full scale radial processes with smaller bed volumes. The design comes with an integrated valved packing port which results in improved column performances and ensures easy handling. Flow distribution, bed heights and other physical parameters can be equal to both small scale and full radial process columns.
This column type is therefore often used for initial development and packing optimization studies. In addition, feasibility studies are often performed by Mini Columns or Mini Process columns to mimic full scale radial processes. These slice or segmented columns covering the full radial column spectrum between 3 and 30 cm bed heights.
Frits and distribution are equal, so ideal for virus validation and development purposes. Customization upon request. All Mini Columns can be delivered pre-packed with resin of choice.
