A new "partial-discard" operation strategy was developed to improve the performance, especially purity, achievable in simulated moving bed (SMB) chromatography. This strategy was applied to the four-zone SMB process with two columns per zone for binary separation within the linear range. The "partial-discard" strategy significantly enhanced the purity or enrichment when the discard time and discard length were controlled. In addition, the "partial-feed with partial-discard" strategy improved remarkably the extract and raffinate purities at an intermediate feed time compared with the "partial-feed" operation. Adjustments of the discard length and discard time played key roles in achieving the desired product purity in SMB chromatographic performance.

    • "As compared to a continuous process, batch systems are usually more expensive due to their high solvent consumption and low productivity (Schramm,et al, 2003). The Continuous Chromatographic Simulated Moving Bed technology (SMB) is a system allowing for the continuous separation of compounds, while using less solvent than regular batch chromatography (Bae and Lee, 2006). Developed in the 1960's for the separation of sugars from molasses, this technology has now been applied to pharmaceutical ingredients and several industrial processes (Miller, et al, 1999). "

    ABSTRACT: In North African countries, common or second quality dates are not harvested, but rather left to rot, although they are rich in fructose and glucose, sugars which offer more interesting nutritional properties than sucrose used as common table sugar. The recovery of fructose and glucose from these common dates requires the development of an efficient industrial process capable of separating both sugars. The objective of this study was therefore to test the Continuous Chromatographic Simulated Moving Bed technology (SMB) for the separation of both sugars from date syrup and the production of 90% High-Fructose-Syrup (HFS-90). Consisting of four adsorption columns, a laboratory SMB system was used to test the effect on separation of: date syrup sugar concentrations of 37, 26 and 22 %; Feed or syrup and Eluent or distilled water flow rate. After running 27 different combinations of operating parameters, the Feed and Eluent flow rates of 0.45 and 3.2 pore volume/h (pv/h), respectively, produced the highest fructose concentration, but HFS-90 was produced only with the date syrup at 22 % sugar. Accordingly, the SMB process is a promising industrial technology for the recovery of fructose and glucose from date pulp syrup. Optimal operating parameters need optimization depending on date syrup sugar concentration.

    ABSTRACT: The authors have analyzed the POLDER data over lands obtained in June 13, 1997. The atmospheric effects are removed from observed reflectance images by using their atmospheric correction scheme. In the atmospheric correction, their needed a realistic atmospheric model. The POLDER's unique sensor has an ability to measure both the directional reflectance and polarization in the visible and near-infrared bands reflected by the Earth-atmosphere system. They estimated aerosol optical parameters from both the reflectance and polarization data at 443 nm for the study area. They converted the POLDER image data into the surface reflectance image data using the atmospheric correction scheme based on retrieval aerosol optical parameters. Then they got estimates of the Roujean's BRDF parameters for land surfaces in Mongolia from their surface reflectance images at 443, 670, and 865 nm

    ABSTRACT: Chromatographische Trennverfahren besitzen eine außerordentliche Bedeutung bei der Aufreinigung wertvoller Stoffe im Bereich der pharmazeutischen Industrie, der Biotechnologie und bei der Gewinnung von Feinchemikalien. Typischerweise basieren die Prozesse nach wie vor auf dem Einsatz einer chargenweisen periodischen Injektion der Rohgemische und einer entsprechenden periodischen Sammlung der Produktfraktionen. In den 1960er Jahren wurde als leistungsstarke Alternative die auf einer Reihenschaltung von mehreren Trennsäulen basierende und einen Gegenstrom zwischen stationärer und mobiler Phase ausnutzende kontinuierliche Chromatographie entwickelt, die zunächst mit großem Erfolg in der Petrochemie und in der Zuckerindustrie zum Einsatz kam. In den letzten Jahren hat die so genannte Simulated Moving Bed (SMB)-Chromatographie zunehmend Eingang in die pharmazeutische Industrie gefunden. Insbesondere Enantiomerentrennungen unter Verwendung chiraler stationärer Phasen sind zurzeit eine starke Triebfeder für die Entwicklung neuer und noch leistungsfähigerer Prozessvarianten. Gegenwärtig wächst auch auf Grund des steigenden Interesses an effizienten Methoden zur Aufarbeitung von Biomolekülen der Bedarf an leistungsstarken chromatographischen Verfahren. In diesem Aufsatz wird ein Überblick über neue Vorschläge und Trends auf dem Gebiet der kontinuierlichen Gegenstromchromatographie gegeben.
