Trends and innovations for textile filter media are the main topics at Filtech 2021 from February 23-25, 2021 in Cologne/Germany. The event will present all relevant techniques and apparatuses for wet and dry particle separation. In addition, adjacent topics are covered, which are of importance for filtration and filter media, e.g. adhesives, applications of ultrasonic and plasma technology, cutting systems, pleating or other special machines. Furthermore, methods and equipment to analyze the materials to be separated, to control the quality of apparatus components and to realize remote control of separation processes are also included.
The general trend towards intensified digitalization can again be recognized under several aspects at Filtech 2021. “Digital Twins” are presented, which have been developed not only for training purposes but also for predictive control and optimization of separation apparatuses and machines. The intelligent machine registers the operating conditions and maintains the stationary operation despite arising disturbances.
Filtech 2019 hosted 428 exhibitors, about 500 delegates at the congress and in total 16,500 visitors from 75 nations, who experienced and discussed the latest filtration and separation products, developments, trends and innovations, from which filter media are an important topic.
