Thank you for contacting PPT concerning your solvent question. You can try a few things. First, I would need to know what pressure the Argon Gas is set to? Ideally, you want that between 8-12psi, I recommend running the system at 10psi.
You can also try removing the flask and using a beaker. Place it beneath where the flask goes and open the solvent valve. The solvent should flow freely into the beaker.
If you do not get good flow, try removing the tubing above the filter, but first, you need to close the valve on the column. Then try flowing solvent through the tubing above the filter.
