Disposable Bottle Top Filter-Degassing Unit for HPLC solvents saves time while producing excellent results. SOLVFil™ 500 is constructed as a disposable, single piece filtration device from high purity FDA grade polypropylene which eliminates solvent leaking and spills with virtually no extractables and chemically inert. The fill reservoir has a 1/2 liter (500ml) capacity and a 90mm diameter filtration area making filtration much faster than traditional methods and easier and safer.
The built in 0.45µm PTFE (Teflon) membrane is made with very high purity materials and has extremely low extractables. This unit is the choice of many laboratories working with agressive, organic solvents that desire faster filtration than using traditional 47mm membranes.
Use with house vacuum or vacuum pumps and filter directly into any HPLC solvent reservoir bottle that has GL-45 screw threads to very quickly and easily filter and degas your HPLC solvents right into your mobile phase reservoir bottles. Eliminates transferring from glass filter degasser flask to reservoir bottle where you could inadvertently oxygenate the solvents and also have a potential for a spill.
SOLVFil™ is made in ISO 13485 clean room and can be used multiple times with the same solvents until the unit no longer filters and is clogged if desired.
For very fast and convenient filtering use the Cradle Ring (use with standard ring stands) or the low profile, Cradle Pedestal (sold separately and no ring stand required) for safer and hands free filtering.
PTFE or Teflon membranes are hydrophobic that are not very compatible with Aqueous Solutions and may need to be pre-wetted with an alcohol. PTFE has the best organic solvent compatibility compared with other membranes. PTFE is compatible with almost all HPLC solvents except water.
