Whatman Filter Paper – Grade 1 Circles (Whatmans Grade 1)

Whatman Filter Paper – Grade 1 Circles (Whatmans Grade 1)


These cellulose filters are used in qualitative analytical techniques to determine and identify materials.

Code Whatmans Grade 1
  • Pre-pleated qualitative filters are also available, which give improved flow rate and increased loading capacity compared to equivalent flat filters.

Grade 1 (11 µm):

  • The most widely used filter paper for routine applications with medium retention and flow rate.
  • Extended range of sizes includes 10 to 500 mm diameter circles and 460 x 570 mm sheets.
  • This filter is also available in the Filter Cup, this is a convenient, disposable 70 mm filter funnel with a 250 ml capacity moulded from polypropylene with an integral, heat bonded filter (catalogue number 1600-001).
  • This grade covers a wide range of laboratory applications and is frequently used for clarifying liquids.
  • Traditionally the grade is used in qualitative analytical separations for precipitates such as lead sulphate, calcium oxalate (hot), and calcium carbonate.
  • In agriculture, it is used for soil analysis and seed testing procedures.
  • In the food industry, Grade 1 is used for numerous routine techniques to separate solid foodstuffs from associated liquid or extracting liquid and is widely used in education for teaching simple qualitative analytical separations.
  • In air pollution monitoring, using circles or rolls, atmospheric dust is collected from airflow and the stain-intensity measured photometrically.
  • For gas detection, the paper is impregnated with a chromogenic reagent and colour formation quantified by optical reflectance.
