ISOLUTE® Phase Separators are used to separate aqueous and chlorinated solvents following liquid-liquid extraction. The proprietary filtration device allows the flow of the organic solvent but holds up the aqueous layer (for up to 24 hours).
ISOLUTE Phase Separators have been designed to rapidly separate chlorinated solvents from aqueous phases, under gravity.
The phase separators are available in a comprehensive range of column sizes (3, 6, 15, 25, 70 and 150 mL) and in convenient packages of 25-100 (depending on size).
Unlike other phase separation devices, no vacuum or positive pressure is required – the separation is achieved under gravity. The phase separator is impervious to aqueous solvents, but allows the passage of water immiscible solvents of a higher density than water.
