Silica is widely used for various purification and filtration processes. In many cases, irregular silica materials are used and then discarded after a single use. But is this really the best way or are there other possibilities for more efficient and economic processes?
Based on a comprehensive comparison study, irregular and spherical silica materials have been investigated. The outcome is impressively clear: spherical materials have multiple advantages that lead to higher efficiency and sustainability – and therefore are the better and more cost-efficient choice:
- The column is packed only once => labour costs are reduced
- Higher efficiency => higher loadability => increased productivity
- Cleaning-in-Place possible => reusability of the column (more than 30 times)
