Vacuum Filtration

C & M Rogers Ltd offer Vacuum filtration which can be used for a variety of applications. The way this process works is liquid is poured into a funnel, it then travels through a filter, which retains the particulate, and filtrate can be collected separately. By applying vacuum filtration provides the advantage of reducing the process time compared to normal gravity flow filtration. Nevertheless, there are some points that need to be well thought-out when using a vacuum filtration system.

Vacuum filtration is a great technique whereby suction is applied to the mixture of solid and liquid being filtered the liquid is pulled through the filled a lot quicker than normal. Vacuum filtration usually involves a few vital parts to create a smooth process; these include a vacuum filter flask, filter trap, water pump, and a Buchner funnel. The way this process works is the contaminated liquid is poured into the filter, the liquid is sucked through the filter and into the flask by the water pump. Now any surplus liquid that overflows out of the filter flask is caught by the filter trap. The solid matter which has been separated is now left on the surface of the filter.

Vacuum filtration is the process used when it is essential to separate and save the solid particles from a solution; most commonly suction filtration is employed. This technique makes use of aspirators, a tool usually associated with a water tap systems which prevents access to a vacuum while water is passing through it.

The equipment involved for vacuum filtration includes a non reusable filter funnel and filtrate receptacle. A vacuum is applied once the receptacle and funnel are mounted on the base. This is done by using a connecting passage linking to the receptacle which draws the filtrate from the funnel and in to the receptacle. It is only possible to perform vacuum filtrations when using funnels with a flat surface funnel made from porcelain.

Other filtration methods and products offered by C & M Rogers include Gravity Media Filter, Vacuum/Pressure Media Filter & Filstar Separator.

Vacuum Filters

For pressure and vacuum filters the most commonly used sort of media used is Spunbond Polypropylene. The advantage of using this product is currently it is being made readily available in an extensive choice of effective pore sizes. Spunbond Polypropylene is brilliant for lots of different machining applications; however it can blind quickly in grinding or honing processes.
