Millipore glass microfiber filters without binder resin retain their structural integrity without weight loss when heated up to 500°C and can therefore be used in gravimetric analysis as well as for the filtration of hot gases.
Millipore fibrous disc glass fiber filters are available in a wide range of flow rates, pore sizes and throughput capacities. This wide variety of glass fiber filters can be sterilized by EO, gamma irradiation, or autoclaving at 121°C at 1bar.
Millipore® glass fiber filters with binder resin have superior wet strength and are excellent for qualitative analysis and prefiltration, especially for heavily contaminated liquids. Glass fiber filters with binder resin are also widely used for clarification of aqueous solutions. Millipore fibrous disc laboratory filters are available in a wide range of flow rates, thicknesses, pore sizes and throughput capacities. Glass fiber filters may be sterilized by EO, gamma irradiation, or autoclaving at 121°C at 1bar.
IW Tremont's glass microfiber filters are manufactured with 100% borosilicate glass microfiber without the use of binders or strengthening agents. These glass microfiber filters offer many advantages in a wide range of analytical applications.
The glass microfibers used to manufacture these depth filters are smooth and uniform. This permits their characteristically high flow rates while allowing retention of exceptionally small particles and high load capacity. These characteristics are particularly important in applications involving high concentrations of particulate or gelatinous substances. In choosing the appropriate filter for a specific application, careful consideration should be given to the physical form and concentration of the material to be captured by the filter.
