Solvent Filteration and Degassing Products

LAZAR INTRODUCES... Pure and Simple Solutions to Liquid Chromatography Problems. HPLC, as an analytical tool for detection and separation of chemical compounds, has become the most important laboratory technique over the last decade. As with all analytical techniques, minor processing problems sometimes appear which in the long run can have major impact on the accuracy of the system as well as its durability. Although the evolution of liquid chromatographs has brought the instruments via the microprocessor into the computer age there are still problems which the computer cannot solve. This is why we at LAZAR have spent the majority of our R & D time in solving those seemingly simple but persistent problems so that we can proudly tell you that we have the pure and simple chromatography solutions. VERSATILITY AND FLEXIBILITY The LAZAR Filter-Degasser can be used to accommodate almost all HPLC applications. For most ISOCRATIC applications, the Filter-Degasser can be directly screwed onto the popular 1 liter HPLC solvent/reservoir bottle (38mm cap). In this fashion, it is not necessary to further transfer the filtered- degassed solvent where reabsorption of gasses as well as particle contamination can further occur. 28mm and 33mm caps for 250 and 500 ml bottles are also available. The Filter-Degasser with 38mm cap also fits on the standard one gallon (4 liter) solvent bottle for filtration and degassing of solvent without requiring an operator's attention. A gallon of solvent can usually be filtered in less than 10 minutes. Further, the Filter-Degasser is also available with 24/40 and 19/22 standard taper for use with various Erlenmeyer and volumetric flasks. In addition it can be used with a 40/35 standard taper for use with the Millipore« type filtration flasks. For most GRADIENT separations, binary or ternary, LAZAR offers a versatile manifold system where simultaneous vacuum filtration and degassing of 2 or 3 solvents can be run from one vacuum source. The manifold system features individual shutoff valves for each vacuum operation, quick disconnect couplings for the individual filtration units, a master control valve for adjusting vacuum flow, and a disposable vacuum line filter as a safety feature against pump contaminants. The manifold can be attached to any vacuum source.

Filtration and degassing of solvents and samples prior to analysis is recommended by most instrument manufacturers. Instrument manufacturers understand that particulate matter in solvents can cause damage to expensive pumps, clog analytical columns, and in general cause wear and tear to the instruments. The combination of particulate matter and dissolved gasses in solvents can also create spurious peaks or can result in baseline instability. Dissolved oxygen in solvents can cause direct interference with fluorescence and electrochemical detectors. HPLC grade solvents, even though filtered prior to shipment by the manufacturer, can accumulate particles during storage due to shedding from the solvent containers and solvent condensation or polymerization. The use of salts and buffers can also significantly contribute to particles in the mobile phase. Filtration and degassing of solvents with the LAZAR Filter/Degasser reduces instrument down-time, prolongs the life of the analytical columns, pumps, and valves and most importantly helps the instrument perform in optimal fashion.

Solvent Storage Systems and Dispensing Accessories

Solvent Bottle Cap Assemblies Total Systems Concept for Isoratic and Grandient Requirments
SOLVENT BOTTLE CAP ASSEMBLIES Open solvent reservoir bottles or bottles with makeshift caps can lead to particle contamination and absorption of gasses during the storage and dispensing of solvent which has previously been filtered and degassed. LAZAR offers two unique bottle cap assemblies which can minimize solvent recontamination and gas absorption. These assemblies fit the standard 1 liter solvent bottle (38mm caps) or 500 and 250ml bottle (28 and 33mm caps). Adapter cap assemblies are also available for Erlenmeyer flasks with 24/40 standard taper. For users of the Millipore« type glass filtration apparatus, LAZAR offers a filter reservoir cap (40/35 standard taper) which fits directly onto the Millipore« type filtration flasks. This flask now becomes the solvent reservoir eliminating solvent repouring and the risk of recontamination and aeration.

" DRC-5 cap, 40/35 std. taper LAZAR fluoropolymer SOLVENT RESERVOIR (TSR) With a total concern for laboratory safety as well as avoidance of possible contamination problems, LAZAR presents our innovative all fluoropolymer Solvent reservoir bottle. Manufactured from thick wall fluoropolymer, the TSR eliminates the possibility of implosions during a vacuum process. The total inertness of PFA fluoropolymer to almost all organic solvents as well as aqueous solvents eliminates contamination problems such as alkali leaching from glass and subsequent pH change in solvents. As a final benefit of the TSR, the thick, opaque walls of the reservoir protect photosensitive solvents from the effects of extraneous radiation. As with the solvent bottle cap above, the fluoropolymer Solvent bottles come with either a filtered air vent or fluoropolymer siphon for vacuum solvent transfer directly to the solvent bottle.

TOTAL SYSTEMS CONCEPT FOR ISOCRATIC AND GRADIENT REQUIREMENTS
For the HPLC user who wants the ultimate in convenience, simplicity, contaminant free and degassed solvents, LAZAR offers the all fluoropolymer Solvent Reservoir Systems for isocratic, binary, and ternary work. For ISOCRATIC work, a Filter-Degasser unit is mounted on top of the 0.25, 0.50, or 1 liter size fluoropolymer solvent bottle. The solvent is simutaneously filtered and degassed as it enters the fluoropolymer bottle. The solvent is stored in the fluoropolymer reservoir and is delivered to the pump via 1/8 TFE tubing with ╝-28 end fittings. Particle contamination and reabsorption of environmental gasses is minimized due to the complete closure of the system. The above system can be fitted with a Chempure filtration unit to achieve the same results with discrete solvent volumes. For the HPLC user who is doing binary or ternary GRADIENT work, LAZAR offers the total solvent reservoir system. This system consists of 2 or 3 fluoropolymer solvent bottles, retrofitted with Filter-Degassers, and a system console featuring a selector switch for the simultaneous filtering, degassing, and filling of any of the individual solvent reservoirs. This selector switch allows vacuum to be activated to the appropriate solvent bottle as the dip tube is dipped into fresh solvent. After the filling operation is complete, a second lever is pulled relieving vacuum and applying an inert helium blanket to the solvent bottle. This system offers the ultimate in purification and dispensing of multiple solvents while offering the user a pure and simple way to handle solvents. The front panel of the system console also provides three ╝-28 standard receptacles for plumbling directly to the HPLC pump. The system console can be purchased separately for use with glass or other types of solvent bottles. ORDERING INFORMATION ITEM CATALOG NO.
