The Filtration Society was formed in 1964 in London; it is a charitable organization with the goal of technology transfer of separation technologies and existing filtrations and promoting research and development in new areas.
The Filtration society has powerful links with academia and industry. This society’s official journal is called FILTRATION, and it has become the top publication of its kind internationally and is an invaluable resource for engineers and scientists.
The society’s technical conferences and visits bring together industry leaders from different countries and offer various networking opportunities to learn about the latest separation and filtration technology.
The history of society goes back to 1964 when a meeting was held in London to discuss the feasibility of creating a Filtration society in Great Britain. Only 40 individuals were present at the meeting, and 40 companies were represented.
The consensus among the attendees was that major aspects of filtration knowledge were being ignored, and a technical society rather than a trade association would be used if it embraced filtration users such as manufacturers and designers.
