Solid-Liquid Separation, July 6

WFI provided another fantastic course on Liquid Filter Design. It occurred virtually on June 29, 2021, with Dr. Wu Chen as our instructor. Dr. Chen provided years of experience in liquid filter design for various applications. We would also like to thank our panelists, Dr.-Ing. Thomas Peters, Mr. Richard Lydon, and Dr. Christine Sun for a productive panel discussion of some critical questions on liquid filter design. This class was well attended and offered a wealth of knowledge to the audience.

Next Course: Solid-Liquid Separation This 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). This course will focus on the field separation from the industrial application perspective. In addition, pretreatment which is commonly used in the industry to enhance filtration and separation performances will be discussed.

Dr. Wu Chen is a Principal Research Scientist at Dow, USA. He has over 30 years of industrial experience in all areas of solid/liquid separation and air/gas filtration, from both technologies and business perspectives. His experiences include laboratory filtration evaluation, pilot study, full-scale procurement, installation, startup, and troubleshooting. He also has expertise in project management, process design, and plant startup. He has been teaching this course in numerous organizations and countries for over 20 years. He is very active in the filtration industry and technology arena. He has been the plenary and keynote speaker in major conferences. He has served as the chair of the American Filtration and Separation Society (AFS), AFS board of directors, conference chairs, and various committees member.
