Laboratory Vacuum Filter

Our own design of vacuum filter for the dewatering of small test samples. Its quick and simple operation saves us a lot of time when preparing dry samples for assay 

Consists of a simple vacuum plate on which seals and filter paper are placed. The heavy hood makes the seal and traps the sample above the filter paper

We have our machine set up with a simple external vessel and a one way flapper valve to automatically dump the filtered water once the vacuum is released. It is so easy to use and saves us time
