Product Details

5000mL Filter Setup w/Buchner Funnel & Filter Adapter Set
by OnlineScienceMall

With its 5000mL borosilicate glass filter flask and 200mm porcelain buchner funnel, this filtration setup is perfect for use in vacuum filtration. Filtration is a technique by which a solid product is separated from an aqueous solution by pulling the liquid through the filter paper. In this setup, a piece of 12.5cm filter paper is placed in the buchner funnel, and allows the filtrate (liquid) to pass through into the flask, while the precipitate remains on top of the paper. The included set of tapered neoprene filter adapter cones allows for a more versatile setup than our standard 5000mL filter setup.

By using a vacuum hand pump (not included) or a vacuum system (not included), the filtrate is much more easily separated from the precipitate, by pulling as much liquid through as possible. There will be some moisture left in the sample, so it is advisable to allow the sample to dry completely before using it in your application. Using a vacuum rather than gravity filtration allows for a variable filtration rate based on the strength of the pump being used, though care must be taken to not use a vacuum strong enough to rip the filter paper or break the flask. This setup is capable of performing gravity filtration in the absence of a vacuum pump or system.

This filtration setup includes one each of the following items:

  • 5000mL borosilicate glass filter flask
  • 200mm buchner funnel
  • 18m filter paper **may need to be lightly wetted with water to fit properly into the buchner funnel
  • Set of tapered neoprene filter adapter cones
