Silica gel, whether granular or irregular in form, is often used for the following applications:
- Gravity (Open Column)
- Flash (Pressure-Driven)
- MPLC (Medium Pressure Liquid Chromatography)
- TLC (Thin Layer Chromatography)
For Industrial Applications
Granular silica gels play a crucial role in the chemical purification process - the process of eliminating contaminants while retaining as much of the core product as possible.
Chemical and pharmaceutical businesses utilize granular silica gels in industrial applications to purify:
- Organic intermediates
- Natural extracts
Tens to hundreds of kilograms of silica gel are frequently required to pack sizable industrial columns. To achieve a successful separation, it is imperative to align the physical and chemical characteristics of the silica gel with the purification requirements of the target substance.
Sorbtech can assist users through the selection process, helping them to optimize their methods and provide multi-ton quantities.
Sorbent Technologies provides a complete range of granular silica gels in four performance ratings.
