Lab Filtration

Laboratory filtration is generally a mechanical or physical process used to separate solids from fluids (liquids or gasses) by interposing a medium through which only the fluid can pass.

Oversized particles cannot pass through the grid structure of the filter, while fluid and small particles are allowed to pass through.

Suction filtration is a laboratory technique for higher velocity filtration. While, in standard filtration, gravity provides the force that pulls the liquid through the filter paper, in suction filtration a pressure gradient takes over this function.
