Homework Help: lab equipment (chem)

Posted by ~christina~ on Sunday, December 2, 2007 at 11:25pm.

Why is it that in particular experiments they say to use a Hirsch funnel while we have both the Hirch funnel and the buchner funnel at our disposal. In my opinion I prefer to use the buchner funnel to using the Hirch funnel because product gets stuck in the funnel and scraping the product out does not get all of it out.

The buchner funnel however is great for getting all the product out by just sliding it off the filter paper.

So is there a reason why in some cases you would use the hirsch funnel as opposed to the buchner funnel?
