A Penning-trap isobar separator is currently under construction at CENBG (Bordeaux, France) and MPIK (Heidelberg, Germany) for a future installation at the SPIRAL2/DESIR facility. This device aims at purifying the radioactive ion beams from undesired species, in order to deliver highly pure samples of exotic nuclei to the different set-ups which will be installed in the DESIR hall. The present manuscript describes the context and the motivations to build such a system, the targeted characteristics, and the studies to find an efficient purification method for large samples of isobaric species.
