Stirrer lifting system
The Proxcys Stirrer Lifting System (SLS) is purpose-designed for the Batch Chromatography Columns (BCC), and is operated safe and intuitively via two buttons (introducing two-hand-control). With the SLS, the stirrer is lifted effortlessly out of the chromatography bed, prior to e.g. the gel-settling- and -elution steps, or for maintenance purposes. Lifting the stirrer from start-position to fully lifted, takes about 10 seconds.
The SLS is designed to lift the stirrer safe and effortlessly out of the bed during process (e.g. gel-settling or elution-steps) and maintenance (e.g. CIP, cleaning). Depending on process-requirements, the SLS can be designed to also stir in multiple elevated positions, which enables the column to be deployed for multiple processes and different working volumes.
BCC 2D Radial – Unique vessel design offering axial and radial filtration
This BCC 2D Radial (shown) is a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art Batch Chromatography column, equipped with an axial bottom filter, as well as a radial filter offering the largest filter surface possible whilst maintaining a small footprint. This large filter surface area enables faster processing (highest flowrates), without the risk of blockage or product-damage.
The integrated Tripod lifting system is designed to effortlessly open/close the column for maintenance- and inspection purposes, as well as lifting the stirrer, without facility hoist equipment.
- 3x Larger effective free filter area
- Excellent mixing efficiency & distribution
- Thorough cleaning by CIP – sprayballs
- Customization possible
- Suitable for pharmaceutical environments

Integrated Tripod lifting system
The Proxcys Tripod System design has set the benchmark for similar applications since it uniquely respects clean-room requirements by lacking external lines, connections or other non-sanitary add-ons, hence the Proxcys design combines cleanroom compatibility with accuracy, reliability and operator safety.
For effortless maintenance, sieve replacement and manual cleaning, the self-supporting dome construction can be elevated. The Tripod is also able to lift the entire filled vessel, for gravity-draining and better accessibility and ergonomics.
