Liquid Filter Testing and Evaluation, Tuesday, July 28

Waterloo Filtration Institute (WFI) has completed another course in the Certified Filtration & Separation Specialist (CFSS 2020) program with the third course on liquid filtration and separation this morning.

Today’s course Solid Liquid Separation was conducted by Dr. Wu Chen, Principal Research Scientist at Dow, a well-recognized leading expert in the global filtration and separation industry. It was an excellent and informative course, well received by the class. The course allowed participants to learn about techniques in-field separation of contaminants from an industrial perspective. The WFI staff thanks Dr. Wu Chen for his participation in this important subject and his well-received course.

Dr. Swarna Agrawal will continue to train participants in our liquid training course by offering Liquid Filter Testing and Evaluation next Tuesday. This is a course designed especially for liquid filter product evaluation and industry-standard test methods, an introductory course on liquid filtration testing, testing methods and standards, and equipment or instruments used. The course will cover filter test techniques and standards for water, fuel, lube oil, and hydraulic fluids. Besides, particle characteristics, efficiency methods, and ratings will also be reviewed

Dr. Agrawal has 12+ years of experience in filtration and the nonwoven manufacturing industry. For the last 7 years, she has been working as Engineering Manager with Parker Hannifin Engine and Mobile Original Equipment division. She is responsible for all the R&D development for diesel fuel, hydraulic oil, urea filtration regarding filter media selection, their performance, and failure analysis.
