Kaner's hydrophobic PTFE membrane filter cartridges.

Kaner announced its Kan-I TLK series filter cartridges, which utilize hydrophobic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane to prevent water retention, microbial growth and minimize blockage. According to Kaner, the TLK series filter cartridges have high structural strength and corrosion, oxidation and organic solvent resistances to filter a variety of corrosive fluids at a high flow rate. The …

Fraunhofer ITWM provides simulation solutions for filter applications

Fraunhofer has developed a method to predict filtration properties based on three-dimensional models of the filter media and process. Using both GeoDict software, continuously developed since 2001, and the Filter Element Simulation Toolbox (FiltEST), Fraunhofer is able to simulate a filtration process at both a micro- and macro-scale. GeoDict software predicts filtration properties of the …
