Air Filtration Training Course

Filter Media Technologies

An overview of filter media technologies was presented Tuesday, March 30th, 2021 and was the third installment in our course offerings for CFSS 2021.

Dr. Christine Sun instructed the course and provided valuable information on how Nonwovens and other filter media are used in making the filters we use daily. She also added new information about filter media and its uses. The class was well attended, and all left with a wealth of new material. We appreciated Mr. Brian Lane for joining us in the panel discussion to answer the questions.

Brian’s career is distinguished by his role in the successful transformation of Parker Hannifin’s Global Filtration Business as Vice President of Engineering, Technology and Innovation. His experience at Parker ranges from Industrial Process, Hydraulic & Lube, Air Pollution Control & HVAC, Gas Filtration & Separation, Water and Aerospace with leading-edge filtration, sensing and condition monitoring solutions. We are excited that he will join us for our next course to help address your questions.
