Vacuum Filtration System 500ml/1 pc

22.020 - Vacuum filtration unit, 500 ml.
22.020 - Filtration unit for vacuum:

Filtration using vacuum is a chemistry laboratory technique which allows for a greater rate of filtration. Whereas in normal filtration gravity provides the force which draws the liquid through the filter paper, in suction filtration a pressure gradient performs this function. This has the advantage of offering a variable rate depending on the strength of the pump being used to extract air from the acrylic chamber. Care must be taken not to use such a strong vacuum that the filter paper rips (in which case all the solid will be lost back into the solvent) or in extreme cases the glass flask breaks.

The upper and under parts are manufactured from AISI 316 stainless steel and the cylindrical tube is made of acrylic. Support for vacuum.
