MainFrame Accessory Schematic

Bio-Rad MainFrame lifting accessory and Bio-Rad EasyPack column. The lifting accessory consists of a passive frame, a lifting nut, and a set of spacers.

 

The Bio-Rad MainFrame lifting accessory, a passive device for all Bio-Rad process column lines, uses the column motor for lifting the adjustable height adaptor. It simplifies day-to-day chromatography processes by providing hoist-free operation during initial column preparation, inspection, maintenance, or postprocessing and cleaning.The Bio-Rad MainFrame lifting accessory is available in four categories for a predefined range of column diameters:

  • MainFrame 450 for columns up to 450 mm
  • MainFrame 1,000 for columns from 600 to 1,000 mm
  • MainFrame 1,400 for columns from 1,200 to 1,400 mm
  • MainFrame 2,000 for columns >1,400 mm

The Bio-Rad MainFrame lifting accessory can be used with multiple columns within its range, which ensures flexibility and saves required space in the manufacturing facility.

Compared with a hydraulic system embedded on a column, the Bio-Rad MainFrame accessory provides a safe and ergonomic way to remove part of a column and perform operations such as reslurrying a packed bed or replacing a filter. The accessory can be detached from the column so that cleaning and storage can be accomplished outside the cleanroom.

As an option, the electrical cabinet of the Bio-Rad packing motor can be mounted on the Bio-Rad MainFrame lifting accessory.

Each item is delivered with CE certification and is manufactured in our facility, which is certified according to ISO 9001:2000 standards. In Bio-Rad's manufacturing procedures, all steps and components are fully documented. The qualification documentation package assures production in compliance with U.S. and European regulations.
