Predicting Species Separation During Chromatography using Ansys CFD
Liquid chromatography is a purification technique widely used in the pharmaceutical industry as a critical unit operation for protein purification in a fluid mixture moving in a definite direction. Understanding the separation mechanism is key to a successful scale up and commercialization of this process. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations give deep insights into the effect of parameters like geometry, fluid density, viscosity, flow rates etc. on the separation mechanism. Being able to understand and adjust those parameters during the design of a chromatography column enables a successful scale up from a lab-scale to a production scale. This webinar spotlights how Ansys CFD simulations help design chromatography columns and delivers a quick tutorial that demonstrates the entire process.
