- Clarification of beer, wine, urine during spectophotometric or refractometric tests.
- Filtration of the finest, semi-colloidal precipitates, e.g. those consisting of proteins, clay or cold-precipitated barium.
These filter papers are used for routine analyses like clarification, determination of substances, but also as discs with a center hole for technical applications. Grades with a wet burst resistance > 30 kPa are referred to as wet-strengthened and are therefore suitable for pressure or vacuum filtration. White and bright particles can be easily detected with the black paper grade 918, due to the color contrast for example for the detection of fluorine or silicon in water or the detection of mycelium in mildews.
