Laboratory Vacuum Pumps
Nova-Tech offers a wide variety of Vacuum pumps and accessories. Many filtrations require only minimal vacuum to proceed; deep vacuum is not required. Vacuum pump flow required is roughly proportional to the total surface area of filters being used. Filtration of particulate-clogging samples can be improved somewhat with deeper vacuum, but a combination of larger filter surface area, smaller samples, and sequential use of decreasing porosity filter papers may also be required for timely filtration.
