Filter testing is a critical feature of quality control during filter element manufacturing and integrity validation during filter operation. Equally important in filter applications is a good understanding of the feed to be filtered and the filter medium itself, which require characterisation in many different ways.
This two day event will bring together people interested in characterisation, testing and filter media technologies that are being applied in industry, as well as those that are about to become industrially accepted methods. From tightening legislation to the growing number of finer, more demanding, filter processes, new filter media developments are constantly being driven by customer requirements. This, and newer regulatory frameworks and standards, require ever better test methodologies.
Many new developments have taken place in recent years in both gas and liquid applications. The conference will feature key elements of these developments, and will be of particular interest to process engineers, designers, technical and R&D staff, research institutes and decision makers.
An exhibition of characterisation and test equipment will complement the conference, where some of the latest technologies in the market place will be demonstrated by manufacturers and suppliers.
