The ResinTech Column Test Kit is used to perform in-house bench scale pilot tests with ion exchange resins, activated carbon, or other medias. Performance data from column tests can be used to judge if ion exchange technology is a viable process for removal of a specific contaminant.
Bench scale tests are also useful before scaling up to a full-size system. The column test kit contains either one or two complete lab columns and up to four media samples. Each 16-ounce sample jar contains enough media for at least one column test.
The column test kit contains either one or two complete lab columns and up to four media samples. Each column is constructed of 1” OD clear acrylic tubing with a custom screened outlet fitting. Additional miscellaneous hardware required to connect the inlet and outlet of the columns to customer supplied tubing is also provided. The columns are versatile and are specifically designed for resin, carbon, and adsorbent medias, providing ease of use and simple operation. Each 16-ounce sample jar contains enough media for at least one column test.
ResinTech technical support is available by email or phone to help select the medias most likely to be effective and to help calculate likely throughputs for most potential contaminants. Our technical staff can also review results and recommend any additional test work needed for scaleup.
*More samples may be chosen. These samples will ship separately from the column test kit.
