FILTECH 2018, the largest filtration event in the world, takes place from 13 to 15 March 2018 in the German city of Cologne, which will be filled with people passionate about the filtration, separation and related sectors. The associated FILTECH 2018 Conference will again feature the latest advances and techniques in liquid/solid and gas/particle separation – dust, gas and air filtration. The conference offers a three-day opportunity to glean in-depth technology knowledge and practical know-how.

Targeted solutions for filtration and separationThe Nordson Corporation will be demonstrating its adhesive dispensing systems at FILTECH 2018.

As per a recent report from Grand View Research, the global filtration market is expected to be valued at over US$110.82-billion by 2024, this based on compound annual growth rate predictions of 6.4% from 2016 to 2024. In addition, air filtration systems used in various industries, manufacturing facilities and automobiles is projected to further lift growth in the market through 2024, the report states.

Development is also supported by the growing importance of indoor air quality (IAQ). The growth of the fluid filtration market, on the other hand, is driven by macro trends: increasing population, depletion of water resources and ground and surface water contamination, which lead to the need for highly engineered water treatment processes.

FILTECH is the largest and most important worldwide filtration event and is made up of two components: the Show and a Conference. The FILTECH Show is the largest filtration show in the world and a must for all those concerned with purchasing, designing, improving, selling or researching filtration and separation equipment and services.

FILTECH 2018 Conference will feature more than 180 presentations from specialists from 30 different countries. The exciting programme gives a representative cross-section of the different procedures and appliances of separation technology as well as across the industry’s application needs, from the preparation of mineral raw materials, the chemistry, environmental technology and water purification and through to the high purity requirements of the pharmacy and biotechnology sectors.

The latest results from basic research, innovative equipment-based solutions and procedures will also be presented. Delegates from industry as well as researchers are sure to benefit from the availability of high-level knowledge transfer and information sharing.
