  • Separations of your sample into fractions
  • Processes to remove undesired components
  • Processes to enrich valuable target compounds
YLS Consulting AB has long experience in the field of resins and has access to a large number of international resin providers. 

From the myriad of different resin providers around the globe we can identify, source, optimize or design own suitable resins for your purification project.

Fractionation columns to process plant oils


Principle of fractionation:

A mixture of compounds can be separated (into its components) by the use of chromatography
  1. Choose appropriate resin / separation material + column geometry
  2. Load mixture on column
  3. Elute with solvents / salts / additives to desorb the various compounds
  4. Collect eluted compounds in separate containers; clean / regenerate  column
  5. Fractions (Blue, Red, Green, Grey) available in separate containers

Principle of selective separation:

A target compound can be selectively removed from a mixture of compounds by the use of a selective separation material

  1. Choose appropriate resin / separation material + column geometry
  2. Load mixture on column
  3. Let the majority of compounds pass without retention
  4. Elute the bound compound(s) in a separate container; clean / regenerate  column
  5. "Cleaned" fraction (Pink) and target compound (Brown) isolated into separate containers
