The use of glass nutsch filters
BÜCHI filters are used for safely separating solids and (inert) liquids after synthesis. After synthesis, the slurry is transferred into the filter. The solid content in the slurry is held back by the filter cloth forming a filter cake, while the filtrate runs away to the outlet valve in the bottom plate.
The cake is removed easily from the top by opening the cover and lowering the glass filter vessel, which is fixed to the lifting device. The same lifting device is used to lower the bottom for accessing the filter cloth for easy cleaning or exchange.
