About Fritted Discs
A fritted disc is sintered glass particles forming a solid but porous body of glass in a disc shape. A glass fritted disc allows gas or liquid to pass through while filtering or trapping solid particles. A fritted glass disc or fritted filter is typically incorporated into glassware items such as fritted glass funnels, fritted glass crucibles, and other laboratory glass items. When a fritted disc is submerged in liquid, the fritted glass filter maximizes surface area contact of the gas to the liquid by breaking the gas into millions of tiny bubbles. In this way, the gas is scrubbed. Any solid particles or unwanted gaseous components are absorbed into the liquid for a purer, cleaner gas.
While fritted discs are used for a variety of scientific applications, only one company, Rooster Apparatus by David Goldstein, has a patent pending on fritted disc percolators for personal smoking and vaping apparatuses. Learn about Dave Goldstein fritted disc percolators below.

The Fritted Disc Percolator
The fritted disc percolator is a type of percolation system for medical smoking apparatuses and tobacco pipes. Fine to coarse glass particles are bonded together into a disc shape (although other formations are possible) which is affixed inside the bottom of a water pipe or water rig. When smoke or vapor is drawn through the fritted disc percolator, the gas is broken up such that the surface area of the smoke or vapor is maximized. The increased surface area of the smoke or vapor allows the water in the apparatus or pipe to better absorb any impurities or unwanted components in the smoke or vapor. The fritted disc percolator is a patent pending invention of David Goldstein, the founder of Rooster Apparatus. Since bringing the fritted disc percolator to market under Rooster Apparatus, many other glassware companies have infringed upon this patent pending technology and made fritted disc percolating systems of their own.
As David Goldstein’s Rooster Apparatus progresses through the patent process, new data on the Rooster Apparatus fritted disc percolator continues to become available. The 50mm and 65mm Rooster fritted disc remove over 100% more particulates from the smoke and have been shown to actually remove carcinogens from the smoke!!

The Fritted Disc Filter
The fritted disc filter is a glass filter comprised of tiny glass particles bonded together into a porous disc. Fritted disc filters allow smoke to easily pass through the filters and into the chamber of the smoking device while trapping and preventing solids, such as ash and plant matter, from reaching the chamber of the smoking device. Fritted disc filters are used in a variety of laboratory applications but were brought into mainstream use for medical and smoking apparatuses by David Goldstein under the Rooster Apparatus brand.
