VacuShield Traps & Filters
Traps vs. Filters: Product Overview
In a high vacuum setting, traps and filters may be installed on a vacuum foreline, but each has a different function.
- Traps: A trap is a device that is designed to capture vapors and gases.
- Filters: A filter is a device that is designed to capture or reduce particulates, dust, smoke, and aerosols.
When selecting a trap or filter, there are three selection criteria:
- Body style
- Port terminations
