Chromatography column

chromatography column is a device used in chromatography for the separation of chemical compounds from a mixture. A chromatography column contains the stationary phase, allowing the mobile phase to pass through it. This column is able to separate substances based on the differential adsorption of compounds to the adsorbent. Different types of chromatography columns are used in both gas and liquid chromatography. Chromatography columns are used in herbal extraction plants for the separation of product components and for other chemical processes. Able Engineering manufactures high-quality chromatography columns and is also a leading and well-known manufacturer of herbal extraction plants and herbal extraction plant machinery in India.

Principle of Chromatography Column:-

In chromatography columns, the main principle is the adsorption of the solutes of a solution through a stationary phase, which separates the mixture into individual components.

These chromatography columns are also used by organic chemists to purify liquids as well as solids. An impure sample such as silica gel or alumina is loaded onto a column of adsorbent. An organic solvent or a mixture of organic solvents flows down the column.

Applications of Chromatography Column:-

Chromatography columns are used to test for impurities or toxins in pharmaceutical plants, extraction plants, and petroleum industries. The chromatography column is often used in clinical forensic settings to test blood alcohol levels.

Uses of Chromatography Columns:-

  • To isolate active constituents.
  • Water purification.
  • To separate compound mixtures.
  • To remove impurities or carry the purification process.
  • Isolate metabolites from biological fluids.
  • Pre-concentration of trace components.
  • Detection of impurities in pharmaceutical industries.
