Multi-Branch Vacuum Filtration Manifold

Introduction of vacuum filtration manifold

Multifilter is designed and manufactured for the simultaneous filtration of multiple samples. At present, when the laboratory carries on the filtration to the solution, generally USES the glass material sand core filtration device, this kind of method can only filter one sample at a time, the filtration speed is slow, the efficiency is low, the artificial labor intensity is big.

For operators who need to filter multiple samples at the same time, it is more convenient to choose to use a multi-filter. Because each filter rack has its own control valve, only one vacuum pump can be used to support single or multiple simultaneous operations. All stainless brackets of the multi-gang filter can filter operation under the high temperature of 121 ℃. The aluminum alloy clamp design is reasonable and compact, which can easily combine the filter cup with the intermediate filter head and ensure strict sealing without leakage.

A multi-branch vacuum filtration manifold is a piece of laboratory equipment used for the simultaneous filtration of multiple samples. It allows for efficient and convenient filtration of several samples at once, saving time and effort in the laboratory. Here are some key features and considerations for a multi-branch vacuum filtration manifold:

Key Features:

Multiple Ports: The manifold is equipped with several ports, typically ranging from 2 to 12 or more, allowing for the filtration of multiple samples simultaneously.

Adjustable Branches: Each branch of the manifold is usually adjustable, allowing for individual control of the filtration process for each sample.

Vacuum Connection: The manifold is connected to a vacuum source, which creates the necessary negative pressure to drive the filtration process.

Chemical Compatibility: It is important to ensure that the materials used in the manifold are compatible with the chemicals and solvents being filtered.

Material of Construction: The manifold is typically made of chemically resistant materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, or plastic, depending on the specific application and compatibility requirements.

Support for Different Filtration Apparatus: The manifold is designed to accommodate various types of filtration setups, including filter flasks, filter funnels, and other filtration devices.

Pressure Regulation: Some advanced models may include features for regulating the vacuum pressure to control the filtration rate.

Ease of Use: The manifold should be user-friendly, with easy-to-adjust branches and clear markings for sample identification.

Considerations for Use:

Sample Compatibility: Ensure that the samples being filtered are compatible with the filtration setup and materials used in the manifold.

Proper Setup: Assemble the filtration apparatus correctly, making sure that all connections are secure and airtight.

Balanced Filtration: Ensure that the vacuum pressure is evenly distributed across all branches to achieve consistent filtration rates for each sample.

Monitoring and Control: Keep an eye on the progress of filtration to prevent over-filtration or clogging. Adjust the vacuum pressure or filtration time if necessary.

Cleaning and Maintenance: Regularly clean and maintain the manifold to prevent contamination and ensure optimal performance.

Safety Precautions: Always follow laboratory safety protocols, especially when working with vacuum equipment.

A multi-branch vacuum filtration manifold is a valuable tool in laboratories that need to process multiple samples simultaneously. It enhances efficiency, reduces handling time, and ensures consistent filtration results across all samples. When used properly and maintained regularly, it can be a reliable asset in the laboratory.
