The new International Edition for the year 2023 is out now!
The International Edition of F&S - Filtration and Separation contains a variety of actual topics from different application areas of filtration and separation: Technical reports from all relevant applications such as air and gas purification, solid-liquid-separation, filter development, digitalisation and membrane technology can be found in our best-of edition.
The question whether the separation goal fits well to the application purpose and whether the corresponding industrial standard is practicable in all respects is discussed in this edition for the field of compressed air filtration. Various articles in this edition report on the latest developments in the field of filter development and optimization. These include different methods of surface modification of filter media and membranes, but digitization is also gaining increasing importance in the development of filter media - in our Annual Special you will find some interesting reports on new developments in this field.
The filter industry itself is also under scrutiny: how sustainable are filter manufacturing processes and - more importantly - how sustainable are companies in terms of the raw materials they use for filter production? The Filtrex Conference Europe 2022, which you can find a report on here, offered interesting presentations on how the filter industry is meeting this challenge.
