Vacuum Filtering Kit

Item# CE-FILTKIT

This special kit allows you to more quickly separate suspensions and mixtures using vacuum filtration.

Everything you need is included: a 500 ml vacuum filtering flask, a hand vacuum pump, a 2-piece plastic 90 mm Buchner funnel with approximate 300 ml capacity, 9 cm filter paper, connection tubing, and a rubber stopper. The stopper hole is specially cut to hold the Buchner funnel.

The hand pump greatly simplifies the process of vacuum filtration, eliminating the need for a water source and vacuum aspirator. It is also much more economical than a costly electric vacuum pump. You get great vacuum filtering results with this kit!

The vacuum pump is also available separately.

Decent filtering kit, but the pump could use some work Review by
My brother bought this set for me to do filtrations faster. The first few times it worked fine, but the pump kept getting stuck when it was compressed and would not go back. a little WD40 helped a lot, but in the end it was the pump's quality that turned me off.
It's Ok Review by
I have had two of the pumps. The first one broke and the release valve never worked, and the second one, once I finally got a replacement; it seemed to work fine, it is kind of cheap, the plastic and such seem durable, but the pump itself is a bit of a pain sometimes. The filter flask is quite nice and I have not had any problems with it. The funnel is very hard to clean. These are things to consider before buying, but it is a overall, it fairly nice system with everything included.
Pretty decent overall Review by
I noticed that the flask is made in India instead of China. The flask is 500ml; I had 250ml in mind. The pump is strong plastic I suppose, and will last a while. I would rather have a metal one, but that would increase the price and you couldn't filter things reactive to Aluminium or Iron. Overall, you don't get the flask from China, you get a decent pump, and you get tubing. This kit also includes filtering paper and an adapter that goes into the flask.
P.S. To get the tubing to fit the flask, dip into boiling water. Press and wiggle in on.
pump is garbage Review by
I received this kit and inspected everything over. When i read the instructions about the pump handle and how it may stick, i checked mine and sure enough it wouldmt budge. I sprayed silicone lubricant in the piston rod as explained and it made the hadle move but when contacted the piston rod does not retract back. I have a pump that has lasted me 3 years and the only thing that is bad is the gauge. i'm just swapping out gauges. No sence it getting a refund. Overall i cant rate this kit because i havent got that far. I wouldnt recommend buying the whole kit.
Maybe mistake by sister company? Review by
I ordered this handheld vac filter kit with an array of other items. Every item was excellent excusing this one. 1 the stopper to funnel was not drilled to size, 2 the tubing fit the vac pump snug yet not a chance of getting it on the flask side nozzle. I called and emailed my problem. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE the problem was explained and new parts were sent at HST expense. Satisfied
