Column packing methods can significantly affect column performance, depending on the column inner diameter. For instance, the wall effect has a strong influence when the column inner diameter is small. Therefore, it is important to evaluate in detail such packing parameters that can influence column performance.
The column packing team of YMC has investigated the influence of
- rate of compression and packing flow rate
- salt concentration of packing solvent
- slurry concentration
on the quality of a packed column.
Here you can find out what influence the different packing parameters can have on column quality and how a simple column packing procedure can be derived.
