Microfiltration membrane and ultrafiltration membrane training

(Nanowerk News) The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering short course training on September 22nd in Charlotte, North Carolina.
To kickoff the "Infrastructure, Sustainability & Filter Testing Management " Conference, Sept 23-25, that the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is holding in Charlotte, there will be seven short courses on September 22, 2008. Two of these courses are "Microfiltration Membrane" and "Ultrafiltration Membrane" Training.
Are you an Engineer or Chemist working in the Pharmaceutical, Microelectronic, Food and Beverage, Water and Waste Water, Chemical, Laboratory, or Medical Markets?
In these two half-day courses, attendees will gather new insights 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 microfiltration and ultrafiltration membranes typically used in the Pharmaceutical, Microelectronic, Food and Beverage, Water and Waste Water, Chemical, Laboratory, and Medical Markets.
The "Microfiltration Membrane" course is in the morning on September 22nd. The "Ultrafiltration Membrane" course is in the afternoon. They are being given at the Hilton University Place, Charlotte, NC.
These courses precede the AFS "Infrastructure, Sustainability & Testing Management" Conference, Sept. 23-25, 2008 at the same location
Instructor for both courses: Scott P. Yaeger
