AFS Membrane Short Courses Kick Off Emissions Conference
The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering "Microfiltration Membrane" and "Ultrafiltration Membrane" short course training on October 5 at the Kensington Court Hotel in Ann Arbor, Mich. There are six short courses that kickoff the AFS 4th Biennial Emission Solutions Conference that runs through Oct. 8.
In these two half-day courses, attendees will gather insight into the various types of microporous membranes including: strengths and weaknesses, performance characteristics, integrity testing, retention efficiency, ratings and comparisons. They will learn to differentiate between microporous, ultrafiltration, nanofiltration, and reverse osmosis membranes. These courses provide an in-depth study of the membranes typically used in the pharmaceutical, microelectronic, food and beverage, water and wastewater, chemical, laboratory, and medical markets.
The instructor is Scott P. Yaeger, who has more than 30 years of experience in the development, manufacture, sales, marketing, application, and management of membrane companies.
