Filter papers are among the most used materials in laboratories. Filter papers, which normally have a round shape, are also produced from cotton fiber and are used in laboratories to filter components.
Filter papers, which have many different properties, are generally seen as a common feature in all filter papers in terms of resistance to wetness, particle retention, pore structure, compatibility, capacity, efficiency or volumetric flow rate.
In volume filtration performed with filter paper used in volume and surface filtration processes, particles are captured in most of the filter paper, but in surface filtration, the particles are retained on the paper surface.
Filter Paper Usage Areas
As we mentioned above, the filter paper used in laboratory experiments in asphalt construction is available in many different types. Filter paper, which has different usage areas depending on its types, is frequently used in biology, chemistry and other laboratory fields and in the construction sector.
The variety of filter papers is determined according to the chemicals to be used, and experiments are carried out by using filter paper suitable for each chemical. Filter papers, which are mostly used in laboratory experiments such as gravity or vacuum filtration, are also used in separation or purification processes.
For this reason, when choosing filter paper, it is absolutely necessary to pay attention to its chemical compatibility, resistance to wetness, filtration method to be used, pore size and filtration efficiency. Thus, the results obtained from the experiments carried out will be much more precise.
