Short Course II - Fine Dust Separation

This 1-day "Fine Dust Separation" Short Course is of interest to engineers, technicians, scientists, managers, and other personnel involved in gas-solid separation in the process and other industries. They will find the course informative, regardless of whether they design, purchase, research, or use dust separation equipment for product recovery, emission control, air cleaning or process gas cleaning. It is a comprehensive review of the processes involved in the separation of solid or liquid particles from gases, which will emphasise practical aspects and present appropriate theoretical information as necessary.
