AFS is the premier organization in North America dedicated to R&D, problem solutions and technology transfer in fluid-particle separation for the benefit of industrial processes, individual health and a clean environment.
Over the past two years over 300 organizations have sent representatives to AFS events . These companies understand the value of employees with knowledge of the latest information in filtration and separation technology.
Emerging Technology – Are You Being Left Behind?
With three technical sessions on “Emerging Technology”, AFS will be hosting a dozen experts on what’s the hot topics in filtration and separation.
Topics include Nanotechnology, Fiber Innovation Technology, High-Temperature Ceramic Fiber Filter Media and Innovative Disinfection Technology, plus many more.
Homeland Security – Filtration & Separation Safeguards
The Dixie Chapter of the AFS has organized three technical sessions around the theme of Homeland Security. This is a new area that AFS has not specifically addressed previously and the topics are both interesting and innovative. These sessions demonstrate a new market area for companies in the filtration and separation industry.
Topics include Quantum Cascade Laser a Tool for Trace Chemical Detection, Dirty Bomb Detection, High Strength Micro and Nano Fiber Based Nonwovens, Unsteady-State Simulation of Nanoparticle Filtration Via Electrospun Nanofiber Media, plus many more.
What do AFS Conference Attendees Say!
“AFS conferences are great venues to learn, network and present new ideas. Attendees have a real interest in the industry. The society blends business and technical backgrounds through a clear focus on the industry and science of filtration and separations. If you want to stay current with the leading edge of the industry, AFS conferences are essential to attend.”
John Finley, MemPro Ceramics Corp.
“Since I started my professional career in the separations field in 2001 I am a constant attendee of the AFS annual conference. I have benefited from my attendance in many ways, from getting aware of the newest developments in the separations area to making a lot of new valuable contacts and friends. Also the opportunity to present my own latest work helped me to generate interest and to get extremely valuable feedback, which was very beneficial for my research work. Thank you AFS.”
