Continuous Chromatographic Separation of Salt From Sugars by Simulated Moving Bed Technology (SMB) Using Orochem Zucchero Columns

Simulated Moving Bed technology (SMB) is a continuous chromatography technique widely used in the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry. The continuous chromatographic separation of sodium sulphate (Na2 SO4) from a mixture of glucose and mannose was established by using the Orochem Zuccheroâ„¢ columns and the SMB technology. The main advantages of SMB over batch chromatography includes better yields, higher purity, and decreased solvent usage, which together make the SMB technology economically viable and ideal for desalting applications.
