Filtration Society celebrates 50th anniversary conference

Mar 31 2015

The Filtration Society celebrate its landmark 50th International Conference and Exhibition which recently took place at the Riverside Innovation Centre, Chester, UK.

The event, sponsored by Whitehouse Scientific, a world-renowned producer of calibration microspheres, attracted over  100 international visitors to the two day event, which featured  the presentation of  over twenty technical papers by international industry experts and a ‘full to capacity’ trade exhibition, showcasing the latest technologies in wet and dry filtration

Dr Graham Rideal, CEO of Whitehouse Scientific and science correspondent for The Filtration Society, said, “The conference once again gave me an opportunity to meet old and new contacts who are at the cutting edge of research and development  in the filtration industry. Not only was I able to share my expertise from Whitehouse Scientific, but I also learned from others.”

The main conference featured a diverse range of presentations from several countries including Nagoya University (Japan), Outotec (Finland), Thomas Broadbent & Sons (UK), Haver & Boecker (Germany) and Whitehouse Scientific (UK) who covered a wide  spectrum of innovative wet and dry filtration topics and technologies.

 The two day event also included the very popular ‘Technology Burst’ to give exhibitors the opportunity to deliver short presentations about their tabletop displays, which were very well received.

Founded in London in 1964, The Filtration Society is a charitable organisation that throughout its tenure has forged equally strong links with industry and academia. Its primary objectives are to promote research and development, transfer existing technologies into new applications, and to advance the fields of filtration and separation. www.filtsoc.org.uk
