Cytiva's Solvent IFD is a high-flow HPLC in-line filter/degasser, designed to simultaneously filter and degas organically based HPLC mobile phases.
- Faster than traditional mobile phase preparation
- Chemically resistant polypropylene membrane and housing, built to filter solvent mobile phases without expensive stand-alone degassing equipment
- Air vent on inlet with luer lock cap
- Integrity-testable with the bubble point method
- End fittings included
Whatman IFD options from Cytiva's business are available for a variety of applications.
A sturdy and chemically resistant medium is needed to filter and degas an organic solvent. Polypropylene is largely inert, compatible with many chemicals, and retains stability across a range of temperatures. The 0.2 µm high-flow polypropylene membrane and housing makes Solvent IFD suitable to filter and degas these solvents.
The Solvent IFD’s all-polypropylene housing is sealed by a security ring. The filter includes fittings to accommodate ¹/₁₆ to ¹/₈" tubing and an air vent on the inlet with luer lock cap to enable priming.
The in-line filter works on the principle of 'bubble point' – the point of pressure at which gases will pass through a wet membrane. If pressure is maintained below the bubble point, the gas will not pass through the membrane and is trapped by the particular filter device.
