This is a complete filtering funnel similar in application to a laboratory Buchner Funnel, mounted on a trolley. You can filter solids, waxes, carbon, clay, etc... with these filters. Filter in minutes what you would normally do in hours.
Laboratory Size. Holds 1 liter of crude per batch, 2.8 gallons of 10:1 Solvent:Crude, 2+ liters of wax (@50% wax content).
This is a Polypropylene molded plastic filter trolley. This machine is tough, durable and almost indestructible (it's basically one solid piece of plastic). We have one unit that is 10 years old and works like new. PP is impervious to Nitric, Hydrochloric and similar acids so it will easily handle Ethanol, Isopropyl and any solvent you can throw at it.
This machine comes with an included diaphragm pump which does the job of sucking the filtrate through the filter, so NO VACUUM PUMP REQUIRED. The pump can handle acids, bases and alcohols so no special care is needed for this pump. NO COLD TRAP REQUIRED. This is a pneumatic pump so there is no risk of sparks, this means you must have an air compressor to supply this machine with compressed air.
Filter paper is placed over a removable grate, a seal is then placed around the filter to prevent leaks. There is 0% chance of leaks. This takes a few minutes to install and even faster to take apart. Add your tincture and begin filtering.
This machine completely dissembles so is easy to clean.
