Microfiltration membrane and ultrafiltration membrane training from the AFS
(Nanowerk News) The American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is offering short course training on May 4th in Bloomington, Minnesota.
To kickoff the AFS 22nd Annual Conference, May 4-7, that the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) is holding in Bloomington, there will be twelve short courses on May 4, 2009. 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 May 4th. The "Ultrafiltration Membrane" course is in the afternoon. They are being given at the Sheraton Hotel, Bloomington, MN.
