Filtration Society to hold fifth Filter Media Training and Conference
The Filtration Society, which is a not for profit organsation with the aim to advance and disseminate knowledge on the design and use of filtration and separation techniques in industry, commerce and other walks of life announces Filter Media 5 the fifth in a series of training seminar, conference and exhibitions on filter media, to be held at the Mercure Hotel Chester on 12th and 13th October.
The short course on the 12th October — Media for Gas and Liquid Filtration, lead by Prof Richard Wakeman and Dr Steve Tarleton covers:
- The role of Media in Filtration
- Fibres and Yarns for Filter Media
- Woven Media – Production, Structure and Properties
- Non-woven Media – Production Structure and Properties
- Membranes and Reactive Media
- Testing Filter Media for Gas Applications
- Characterising and Testing Filter Media for Liquid Applications
The conference on the 13th October includes presentations from some of the leading developers of filter media and test equipment. The supporting exhibition offers equipment and instrumentation for media manufacture and testing.
Filter Integrity Limited is pleased to support the activity of the Filtration Society and will be supporting Palas GmbH as UK Sales Partner at their stand at the exhibition. We look forward to seeing you in Chester.

NEW MFP ULPA Nano Filter Media Test Stand extends test range down to 5nm
Following the launch of the new Nano instruments at FILTECH 2011 the natural development of the MFP range of filter media testing stands has followed. MFP ULPA Nano takes the well established MFP automation and control and adds: the new Differential Electrical Mobility Classifier or DEMC allowing the generation of stream of mono-disperse particles in the 3 – 800 nm range from […]
Cambridge Particles Meeting – a quick review
I attended the Cambridge Particles meeting for the first time, held in the Engineering Department of Cambridge University on Friday 13th May 2011. I didn’t know what to expect, but the meeting had a friendly academic atmosphere, with scientists and technicians present having a range of interests in aerosol science, although as exhibited by the […]
Aerosols In the Environment Meeting at the IOP
Just got back from attending the Aerosols in the Environment technical meeting at the Institute of Physics in London. This was a joint meeting with the IOP Environmental Group and the Aerosol Society and was well attended by 35 people from a range of academia, meteorological groups and aerosol characterisation instrument suppliers. As some reading this may know, my […]
What a week that was at Filtech 2011!

Palas GmbH are a prime sponsor for the event, which is hosted by the lovely city of Wiesbaden, Germany. The new Differential Electrical Mobility Classifier or DEMC is based around an already well proven design and allows the precision separation of […]
North East of England – a centre for Vacuum Separator development
An area of world leadership in design and manufacturing for the North East of England, perhaps not well publicised despite many prestigious national awards for the companies involved, is high efficiency cartridge filtration. One major application area where these products are used is internal oil separation for oil flooded vacuum pumps and its here that […]
