It sounds like you pretty much get how it works! Put your cold trap in between your filter set up and your pump and you’ll trap any vapors coming off of your solution before they end up in your pump. Not sure what your scale is like (sounds relatively small) but if you’re not doing this all day every day, a simple dry ice one like this should suffice

Also, it sounds like your pump may be a little more power than you need for filtering alone. If you’re just using the pump for filtering and not purging, a small, cheap, pump with no oil should be just fine. This is the one I use for filtering through a Buchner into a 5L flask:

I’ve never had a problem with this one failing even sans cold trap and even if it does, I’ll gladly pay the $40 to replace it and get another 2 years out of it. Keep in mind though, this will only work for a small filtration setup and won’t provide enough vacuum to purge.
