Electrostatic Charging and Electrets for Air Filter Media.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 7, 2009
The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering short course training on May 4, 2009 in Bloomington, MN.
To kickoff the 22nd Annual Conference, May 4-7, 2009, that the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is holding in Bloomington, MN, there will be twelve short courses on May 4, 2009. Two of these courses are "Nonwoven Air Filtration Media" and "Electrostatic Charging and Electrets for Air Filter Media."
In the "Nonwoven Air Filtration Media" course, attendees will learn the characteristics of fibrous filter media, the processes for making fibrous filter media, specifications of filter media, pore size distribution, pore size, air permeability and pressure drop.
In the "Electrostatic Charging and Electrets for Air Filter Media" course, attendee will learn electrostatic charging methods and the improvement of filtration efficiency, requirements of electrical properties of a material to make an electret, particle capturing, particle loading, and the effects of fabric defects on the degradation of a filter media.
Instructor - Dr. Peter Tsai:
Dr. Peter Tsai is a senior faculty at the Textiles and Nonwovens Development Center (TANDEC) at the University of Tennessee. He has extensive industrial as well as academic experiences. He has investigated the nonwoven processes to make fibrous filter media for 20 years and developed theories, technologies, and computer programs to improve the nonwoven processes and the product qualities of filter media. He developed several powerful electrostatic charging technologies that greatly improved more than 10-fold filtration efficiency of a filter medium. These charging technologies have been licensed to over 30 companies worldwide. His expertise also includes designs and constructions of the media chargers and industrial meltblown lines.
