Adsorption technology RFC (Radial Flow Column)

Innovative chromatography processes

State-of-the-art technology in the functional food sector

Large-scale, industrial chromatography processes in the biotechnology sector and in "functional food applications", such as Lactoferrin extraction, were previously based on processes from the pharmaceuticals industry. This resulted in high system investment costs.

Significant potential savings

The Handtmann RFC column and the peripherals tailor-made for it (piping, valve blocks, CIP systems) offer enormous potential savings, while stable, fully-automatic, industrial scale processes can still be ensured.

The Handtmann RFC can be used in the food industry, for functional food production, for milk applications such as Lactoferrin extraction and in other large-scale adsorber processes.



Temperature resistant up to 100 °C
Pressure resistant up to 6 bar
Little dead space, thus low mixing
High flow rates possible at low pressure difference
Fully-automatic operation possible depending on the application
Cleaning process can be automated by Handtmann CIP system
