Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) April 27, 2011
The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering Air Filtration and Gas/Solid Separation Training on May 9th in Louisville, KY, USA.
AFS is holding its 24th Annual Conference, May 9-12, 2011. There will be eight short courses held on May 9th. Three of these courses are on the topics of air filtration, gas/solid filtration and separation, and air filter testing.
In the "Basic Gas/Air Filtration & Separation" course, attendees will learn the overall spectrum of gas/solid separation. They will gain the basic understanding of the principles behind gas filtration so they can determine what type of filter will meet their requirements. There is an overview of the various competing technologies.
This course will cover; Particles and Particle Properties; Principles of Gas Filtration; Gas Filtration Equipment; Gas Filtration Media; Filter Aids; and Gas Filter Performance, Testing and Standards.
The “Basic Gas/Air Filtration & Separation” course is a full day 8 hour course.
Two additional complementary courses are “Gas/Solid Separation with Fabric Filters” and “Air Filter Testing”. These are each half day courses.
“Gas/Solid Separation with Fabric Filters” introduces the attendee to the mechanisms of filtration, testing of fabric filter, testing of filter for dust retention, effect of nano fibers on filter performance, filtration of ultra fine particles, test methods for reverse pulse jet cleaning, evaluation of bag house for performance, effect of size distribution on the filter performance, types of cleaning, high temperature filtration, and case studies on evaluation of filter fabric for gas solid separation.
In “Air Filter Testing” attendees will actually visit the filter testing facility of Blue Heaven Technologies.
All attendees of the short courses receive certificates and are awarded CEU credit.
