The Kani Karan Asia Laboratory Vacuum Filter consists of two castings. The upper one is the pulp container and is heavy enough to form an air seal between the filter medium and the base. Two steel dowel pins, which keep the castings in position, eliminate clamps and thumbscrews. The filter paper and cloth are supported by a stainless steel wire screen placed over the drain grooves in the base. A tapped opening is provided in the filter base for the vacuum connection. The filter cake can be washed if desired. Any laboratory handling pulps needs a number of these inexpensive units for fast and convenient filtering. Stainless steel wire screen cloth support, filter cloth, and a package of filter paper supplied.
