Particle/Air Separation

Particle/Air Separation

May 10th, 2022, Tuesday

8:00am-10:00am,  ET Canada & US

Business Meeting

$USD 350

$USD 175 (Member Only )

Course Objectives:

This course will discuss the techniques of particle removal from air streams, which are not covered in air filtration. Topics include cyclones, electrostatic precipitators, and wet scrubbers. It is important for the air filtration specialists to understand these pre-filtration separation processes because they are often needed in the design of filtration systems.

1. Airborne particles

  • 1.1 Particles in the air

  • 1.2 Technologies for air/particulate separation

2. Prefiltration devices

  • 2.1 Cyclones

  • 2.2 Electrostatic precipitators

  • 2.4 Wet scrubbers

  • 2.5 Comparison of these devices

  • 2.6 Opportunities and trends for future development

Professor Chao Tan, Ph.D, P.Eng.

Professor @  University of Waterloo

Dr. Chao Tan is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical & Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Waterloo. His contribution to scholarship has been recognized by international peers, as evidenced by the popularity of his technical books in his fields of research. His single-authored textbook, Air Pollution and Greenhouse Gases, was downloaded 1.7+ million times globally, and another coauthored textbook was recognized as “the pop-used publications on SpringerLink that concern one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals”. His impact on his peer groups and the wider society is also evidenced by numerous domestic and international awards, including Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the Canadian Society of Mechanical Engineering, Early Research Excellence Award, Outstanding Performance Award, Highly Cited Paper (top 1%) from Clarivate Analytics, and Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Tsinghua University. He has mentored 100+ HQPs; many of them have taken leadership roles in their chosen fields, winning various awards including chair professorship, Best Journal Articles, Best Conference Papers, and Featured Articles.


Dr. Tan received his BSc and MSc degrees from Tsinghua University, Beijing in the 1990s, and PhD degree from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA in 2004. He was the founding Executive Director of Tsinghua-Waterloo Joint Research Centre for Energy and Environmental Technologies, and the Associate Dean (International) of Waterloo Engineering.
