FEP separating funnels are laboratory tools used for separating immiscible liquids with different densities. FEP stands for fluorinated ethylene propylene, which is a highly resistant and inert material used in many laboratory applications.
FEP separating funnels are made from a single piece of FEP material, which ensures there are no seams or joints that can leak or cause contamination. The funnel shape allows for easy pouring of liquids, while the stopcock at the bottom of the funnel allows for controlled release of the separated liquids.
FEP separating funnels are commonly used in chemistry and biology applications, including organic chemistry, biochemistry, and pharmaceuticals. They can be used to separate liquids such as oil and water, or to extract compounds from a mixture. The clarity of the FEP material allows for easy observation of the separation process, which is important for ensuring accurate and precise results.
One of the advantages of FEP separating funnels is their chemical resistance. FEP is highly resistant to most chemicals, including acids, bases, and organic solvents. This makes FEP separating funnels suitable for use in a wide range of applications, including those involving corrosive or hazardous chemicals.
The funnel wall has no adhesion and adsorption to the solvent, can be completely emptied, the interface is clearly visible, and the sealing is good, which can prevent the penetration of chemicals in the separatory funnel; the piston device is easy to remove and easy to clean; It is convenient for the user to observe the liquid change in the cavity during the actual sample separation; the control valve made of high-purity experimental grade PTFE can flexibly control the flow; compared with the glass separatory funnel, the advantage is that it can separate hydrofluoric acid, and It is not easy to damage, can be used for a long time, the inner wall is smooth, does not adhere to any substances, and is easy to clean.
