Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 7, 2011
The American Filtration and Separations Society will hold its 24th Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition on May 9-12, 2011 at the Holiday Inn Hurstbourne, Louisville, KY.
Strong emphasis is given to both liquid and gas separations. Within these fields are areas of interest involving the hardware, the appropriate filter media, the overall system and its operation, product evaluation and monitoring, instrumentation, ancillary products such as supports, resins and adhesives, requirements for specific applications, safety and health aspects, selection protocols, and particle science and characterization. Understanding the basic aspects of the processes and the mathematical modeling of these operations will play an important role in improved design and operation.
The current economic climate results in significant pressure on most industries. Production rates are down, capital spending is reduced, cost control efforts take over and morale is low. In difficult times like these we should remind ourselves that filtration and separation can play a key role in approaching these challenges. Recent signs of economic stabilization also require an even stronger effort on market evaluation and preparation to increased demand. In the past year resources were concentrated on product and process development, which promises to have generated important novelties for the separation society.
The AFS provides an important platform to keep your company updated on the new opportunities. The vision of the 2011 Annual Conference is to discuss the challenges and the opportunities in separations and to address environmental issues.
The conference offers companies the opportunity to promote their products and services through conference sponsorships and tabletop exhibits. This conference will be the largest gathering of filtration and separation experts in North America in 2011.
The conference is kicked off on Monday, May 9, 2011 with eleven short courses being offered. These courses include:
- Fundamentals of Liquid Filtration
- Fundamentals of Air/Gas Filtration
- Microfiltration Membranes
- Ultrafiltration Membranes
- Gas Solid Separation with Fabric Filters
- Gas Solid Separation with Cyclones
- Air Filter Testing
- Advanced topics in Automotive Filter Testing
- Liquid Filtration Testing Basics
- Filtration & Separations Media Use and Market
- Fundamentals of Aerosol Filtration in Fibrous Webs
