Manifold Filter

Manifold is essentially a device that provides vacuum support for filtration of multiple test samples simultaneously. Ideally used to facilitate one, three or six test samples at the same time, the most advanced types of manifolds are capable of handling as many as 20 samples simultaneously. What makes the use of a manifold apparatus really handy is that all this can be achieved using only a single vacuum source. Vacuum manifold is the aluminum manifold that has been designed for the vacuum filtration of the acropprep and acroawell lines of multi-well filter plates.

In this manifold. we can top of the filter plate prior to removing it to release any hanging drops that may be on attached to the outlet tips. This is sturdy & chemical resistant capable of processing 20 samples simultaneously and each vac-man manifold is supplied with 20 individually luer-lok stopcocks so each port is controlled individually.

The use of manifold makes filtration simple as well as faster than the filtration done through traditional means. In other words, the use of manifold for filtration helps overcome several handicaps including low speed, low efficiency, and high labor exertion. All this makes it more convenient especially for those who need to filter several samples at a given point of time. The uses of chemicals The purification systems or with manifold may create a safety scanner : hazard. For protection we can use a lab coat and safety glasses when using the pure yield or wizard purification systems. Before beginning a purification procedure inspect the components of the vacuum manifold. We do not use if cracks or other damage are visible and ensure that the one way Luer -Lok stopcocks are attached firmly to the neoprene stopper.

Only a single vacuum pump can be used to facilitate the operation of a multi-branch manifold filter as each filter holder has a separate control valve of its own. PVC vacuum filtration manifolds are lightweight and resistant to acids. Manifolds made of stainless steel are autoclavable, versatile and can hold temperatures of up to 180F while the use of high-quality extra hardened glass can make it fit to operate at temperatures as high as 200F.

Manifolds are used widely in the field of chemical analysis, water quality analysis, biochemical and pharmaceutical applications, food and beverage industries, scientific research as well as environmental testing. A typical manifold setup consists of a stainless steel manifold, three or six filter holders, a joint flask, and a vacuum source.

The manifold units are designed in a manner that they have low center of gravity so that they do not tip when full loaded. The fact that each station uses separate control valve makes independent operation possible. The apparatus comes equipped with anodized aluminum handles on both the ends to enable positioning on bench top.
