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|
- The RFC columns are easy to pack and unpack
- Most commercially available gels are held securely in the system
- RFC packaging stations available
More filtration methods
In addition to RFC protein extraction, Handtmann Armaturenfabrik offers other filtration methods.
