Dr Graham Rideal, chief executive officer of Whitehouse Scientific, will present a paper on 'Measuring the maximum pore size of small profile filter elements' at this year's Filtech conference.
Filtech 2011 takes place on 22-24 March in Wiesbaden, Germany, and Whitehouse Scientific is also exhibiting at the associated trade show.
Whitehouse Scientific has developed a method for determining the cut point of filter media.
Using specially prepared, precision glass microspheres to challenge the filter, it is possible to measure filter efficiencies within micron resolutions.
The method uses narrow particle size distribution standards and covers pore sizes from just a few microns to over 600 microns.
The results are highly reproducible and traceable to international standards, for example NIST.
The Filtech 2011 Conference will feature 180 papers from 31 countries and provides a representative survey of current research findings and developments for the solution of filtration and separation targets in a range of sectors.
The Filtech 2011 conference also features a plenary lecture and six survey lectures.
