Stainless Steel HPLC Columns
Stainless Steel HPLC Columns are the prime instruments to separate molecule mixtures in individual components with solvents or super critical fluids under high pressure.
Fundamentally we differentiate between analytical, semi-prep, prep and production scale columns.
Care has to be taken with selection of columns. Some molecules in particular bio molecules have an affinity to steel and some molecules are instable ore denature under pressure. Please check alternative column or cartridge systems including Flash or Medium Pressure Chromatography, Glass columns, Glass Cartridges or PEEK columns.
SS Columns are also used as extractors or chemical reactors. Often they have to survive extreme chemical conditions. During the past 20 years we have experimented with a wide range of surface implantation and specialised chemical resistant coatings. If you use corrosive mobile phases please contact us for specially coated columns.
To pack columns a range of packing tools are required. To assure even solvent distribution and particle retention frits are required.
