Filter (chemistry)

Filter (chemistry)

. In domestic food and drink preparation where bulk solids are removed from liquids, this is often called a strainer.

Filtrate is the liquid produced after filtering a suspension of a solid in a liquid.Filtrand (or Residue) is the solid residue remaining in the filter following filtrationFact|date=February 2007.

For certain situations, such as separating an aqueous substance from a solid one, filtering may be replaced with decanting.
