June 23, 2020 – Gas Phase Filtration

Waterloo Filtration Institute (WFI) will begin the 11th & 12th courses in this summer’s training session designed to further improve your knowledge of air filtration in Gas Phase Filtration and Air Filter Testing and Evaluation. These courses will round out the air filtration section of our Certified Filtration and Separation Specialist CFSS 2020 Education Program.

Today's class was from Prof. Chao Tan of the University of Waterloo, June 16, 2020. Dr. Tan gave a fantastic presentation on many topics from cyclones to electrostatic precipitators and scrubbers. His talk was very informative and helpful to understand some difficult concepts. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to Dr.Tan for his great dedication and help to the advancement of filtration knowledge to all.

On June 23, 2020, our 11th air filtration course will be on Gas Phase Filtration by Mr. Kevin Jameson, President of Pure Air Filtration, a company that specializes in gas phase filtration. The course will help you get an overall understanding of the gas phase filtration market and technologies for air purification in terms of removing harmful gases, VOCs, and odors, etc. It covers basic principles, different types of adsorbents and their functions in use, delivery systems of adsorbents, products in different application markets, such as HVAC, odor control, environmental exhaust, toxic gas protection, and the product evaluation methods and standards. New opportunities will also be discussed in this class.

On June 30, 2020, our 12th air filtration course will be on Air Filtration Testing and Evaluation by Mr. Bob Burkhead, President of Blue Heaven Technologies. The course is intended to provide a broad understanding of the test methodologies and techniques used in developing non-woven air filtration media and manufactured end products. Specific focus is given to a wide variety of application-driven developments and covers HVAC, automotive, industrial, clean spaces and medical applications, among others.

On July 30, 2020, our first of two courses dealing with Liquid Filtration will begin followed by several others. Dr. Wu Chen is a Principal Research Scientist at Dow. He has over 30 years of industrial experience in all areas of solid/liquid separation and air/gas filtration, in both technologies and business perspectives.

Dr. Chen’s course is designed for certifying professionals as a specialist in solid/liquid separation (or sometimes called liquid filtration). Separation of particles from a liquid can be accomplished by filtration (separation with a filter medium) or field separation (separation without a filter medium). The curriculum is designed for people who are new to the filtration industry either in technical, sales, or business functions. It is also a very good refreshing course for those who have been involved in filtration for a while, especially in relating some fundamental principles to practical operations.
