DryDisk® Separation Membranes offer a much more efficient means of drying solvents in organic extractions than sodium sulfate. The membranes remove residual water from organic solvents via physical separation rather than a chemical process, which eliminates the challenges inherent to chemical drying such as retention of water-soluble compounds, over-saturation, clogging, oven drying, and contamination.
Two types of disks and a barrel with the membrane embedded are available. Choose the disk with ring for convenient handling and trend analysis with previous work using the same disk. Choose the more economical DryDisk®-R to replace sodium sulfate in a high-production lab.
