Process Filtration

There are many different methods of filtration, but all aim to attain the separation of two or more substances. This is achieved by some form of interaction between the substance or objects to be removed and the filter. In addition the substance that is to pass through the filter must be a fluid, i.e. a liquid or gas.

The simplest method of filtration is to pass a solution of a solid and fluid through a porous interface so that the solid is trapped, while the fluid passes through. This principle relies upon the size difference between the particles making up the fluid, and the particles making up the solid.

By extending this principle, it is possible to separate any two things with a significant or reliable size difference. For example an experiment to prove the existence of microscopic organisms involves the comparison of water passed through unglazed porcelain and unfiltered water. When left in sealed containers the filtrated water takes longer to go foul, showing that very small items (such as bacteria) can be removed from fluids by filtration.

That being said JB Systems would like to introduce a new product that will address the specific form of filtration called, Process Filtration.
