Note: The SFC 80q, 200q, and 200 BTq Systems have been replaced with the SFC 150 Mgm System. The 350 Preparative System remains available for sale.
Waters' suite of bulk-scale supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) purification systems offers the optimal system for the amount of sample you need to purify. These systems easily allow you to purify a large amount of one sample. When faster and more cost-effective means sustainable business operations, SFC is the purification technique that makes the difference.
Preparative-scale SFC 80q, 200q, and 350 systems are automated systems that features co-solvent gradient, high pressure separators for quantitative recovery of purified products, such as enantiomers, complex synthetic chemicals and natural products. They are designed for chiral and achiral separations.
|SFC 80q||SFC 200q||SFC 350|
|Optimal column I.D.||19 mm||30 mm||50 mm|
|Recommended total flow rate*||80 g/min||150 g/min||300 g/min|
|Typical throughput**||Up to 15 g/day||Up to 40 g/day||Up to 100 g/day|
|Fractions||6 + 1 waste||5 + 1 waste||5 + 1 waste|
*Under general operating conditions 1 g/min of CO2 is approximately equivalent to 1 mL/min
