What is an Inlet Solvent filter?

An inlet solvent filter is a specialized frit, designed to attach to the inlet lines of the pump. As the mobile phase passes through, particulate matter larger than the pores in the filter is held up in the filter’s meshwork and not passed through. This helps insure the mobile phase is clean and free of material that might cause damage to other system components downstream. Common pore sizes of inlet solvent filters are 2µm, 10µm, and 20µm.
