Abstract:

An apparatus has been developed which allows high filtration with a Millipore filter on a continuous basis. The apparatus consists of a Plexiglas box built around a Millipore filter holder. The entrance port in the box contains a nozzle which increases the velocity of the incoming solution and directs it into a tangential flow pattern, thus simultaneously supplying the mixture to be filtered as well as washing the filter clean of separated solids. Filtrate containing only particles smaller than 0.45 microns in diameter can be recovered continuously at a rate of 100 ml. per hour.
