Whitehouse Scientific is once again a major sponsor of The Filtration Society’s annual international conference and exhibition, returning on 5-6 November 2013 at the Mercure Chester East Hotel, Christleton, Chester, UK.This year the main one-day event focuses on ‘Filter Media’ and will be preceded by a ‘Media for Gas and Liquid Filtration Course’.
Attendance at Filtration Society meetings is open to everyone - members, non-members, UK and non-UK delegates. The full conference programme, registration and exhibition details are now available at http://bit.ly/WHT306.
Dr Graham Rideal, CEO of Whitehouse Scientific and science correspondent for The Filtration Society, said, 'Whitehouse Scientific is very pleased to be supporting the annual Filtration Society conference once again, in this the Society’s 49th year. The appeal for me, especially in the ‘Media for Gas and Liquid Filtration Course’, is no matter whether you are a graduate student or a leading expert in filter media and filtration, we all learn from one another.'
The Filtration Society conference has once again attracted a host of industry leaders. On day one, presenters of the Media for Gas and Liquid Filtration short course will be filtration expert Professor Richard Wakeman and consultant engineer Dr Steve Tarleton. The short course will be a review of the processes involved in the manufacture, properties and applications of filter media used in liquid and air (gas) filtration. Topics covered will include: the role of media in filtration; fibres and yarns for filter media; testing filter media for gas applications; and characterising and testing filter media for liquid applications.
On day two, the main ‘Filter Media 6’ conference will include expert presentations from speakers drawn from both academia and industry. Presenters will discuss new developments in filter media, with key elements including the role of media design, recent products emerging from industrial R&D, and different modern filter media technologies illustrated through successful applications case studies.
The Filtration Society was formed in London in 1964. It is a charitable, non-profit organisation established to advance and disseminate knowledge on the design and use of filtration and separation techniques in industry, commerce and other walks of life.
