Some Introduction of Vacuum Filtration
Hawach vacuum filtrations are faster than simple gravity filtrations with a simple conical funnel. In order to obtain a better performance, there are some points that need to be considered to win the application of vacuum filtration. Reduced pressure and special attention have paid to the equipment used in this procedure.
The glassware should not occur any cracks on the bottoms or the sides. It is also significant that the vacuum trap and the filter flask are clamped accurately, in this way, they will not move during the filtration process. The thick-walled tubing acts as a whip, and the filter flask is slammed into the metal objects resulting in an implosion.
Solvent Particle Removal of Glass Solvent Filter
Hawach glass solvent filter is designed for solvent particulate removal and aqueous mobile phase filtration. All parts of glass solvent filter contacting with solvents are made of chemically inert glass or PTFE material, which can be used in conjunction with regenerated cellulose (RC) filter membrane, especially suitable for particle removal and degassing filtration of the mobile phase during chemical analysis such as HPLC、GC、AA.
The outlet position is far lower than the vacuum pump interface position, which makes the filtration process safer. A hose made of polypropylene is used to safely connect the vacuum hose.
Reliable Quality and Standard Specification
Hawach selects high-quality glass material to make glass solvent filter, so the wall thickness is uniform, no bubble, the glass is smooth and transparent, the flow rate is fast, the pressure resistance and sealing performance are very good, the size specification conforms to the international standard, these properties make it can be used for high temperature and high-pressure sterilization.
A completely clean vacuum environment is provided, and the inner side of the glass solvent filter does not require maintenance and does not produce any contaminants.
The function of Vacuum Pump
Hawach vacuum pump is a device that uses mechanical, physical, or chemical methods to obtain a vacuum. Generally speaking, a vacuum pump is a device to improve, produce, and maintain a vacuum in a closed space by various methods.
If the material contains water or organic solvent, add liquid water filter and condenser to play a filtering role. While using a vacuum dryer, we must strengthen the maintenance of the vacuum pump, change the oil to a vacuum pump in time, and prolong its service life.
Structure of Vacuum Filter
The overall structure of the pump is determined by the layout structure of the pump body. The vertical structure of the inlet and outlet horizontal setting, assembly, and connection lines are more convenient.
However, the center of gravity of the pump is high and the stability is poor at high speed, so this type is mostly used for small pumps. The air inlet of the horizontal pump is up and the exhaust port is down. Sometimes for the vacuum system pipe installation and the connection is convenient, the exhaust port can be connected from the horizontal direction, that is, the inlet and exhaust direction is perpendicular to each other.
Attention in Vacuum Filtration
In operation process, you should never perform a vacuum filtration without a vacuum trap and better keep the trap clean, or it is easy to get sucked in there.
Hawach vacuum filtration can be performed with funnels that have a flat surface. What we should pay attention to is that vacuum filtration is not fit for solvents with low boiling points such as dichloromethane, diethyl, or other similar solvents. Moreover, when you are done with the vacuum filtration, you should remove the tubing from the filter flask before the turn off the vacuum filtration.
