After more than 40 years designing industrial processes based on ion exchange and chromatography technologies, we have acquired outstanding expertise in providing state-of-the-art resins and associated services.
In the last 10 years, tens of thousands of cubic meters of Applexion™ XA resin have been used worldwide for the following applications:
- Demineralization and de-acidification of sugar solutions, sweeteners, whey and organic products
- Extraction and recovery of antibiotics and amino acids
- Processing of organic acids: citric acid, lactic acid, succinic acids, etc.
- Decolorization and removal of organic substances
Based on an extensive benchmark from pilot- to industrial-scale, each Applexion™ XA resin has been selected and designed for specific applications and products. We can help you choose the best resin to maximize your process performance and improve your product quality.

Resin expertise and process improvement
On request, we can perform an audit of your unit in order to:
- Check the status of your resin
- Fine-tune and improve your process for a better productivity
- Propose modifications of your operating procedures to be more efficient in your daily work and increase the lifetime of your resin
If needed, our resin analytical services allow us to characterize your resin (swelling, moisture, fouling, micro-structure, etc.) to follow its evolution and make recommendations to improve your process’s performance.
We can also provide assistance or tailor made trainings for resin loading, unloading and replacement.
