There is no way without separation technology: screening and classifying are a must in quarries and processing plants for mineral raw materials. In times of high energy costs, however, operators must not only pay attention to the performance of their machines and plants, but also to economical consumption and efficient processes. Visitors to FILTECH will get a comprehensive overview of the state of the art as well as trends in research and development.
Expertise in machinery and equipment, technology, and research
The combination of trade show and congress will provide both technical know-how and industry-related expertise: The world’s most important platform for filtration and separation of all types of media will be held again next year. From February 14 to 16, 2023, visitors will get answers to all questions about separation technology at the exhibition center in Cologne.
Due to the dynamic development of the Corona pandemic, the longstanding successful event already expanded its website at the beginning of 2021 to include a detailed information area that virtually presents solutions to interested parties for their separation challenges. In March 2022, however, the organizer and numerous exhibitors and speakers already demonstrated that it is once again possible to safely hold focused trade shows.
At the same time, the range of exhibitors and participants in the conference section proves the cross-sectional nature of the topic: Filtration and separation are the key to efficiency and safety not only in the primary processes in the processing of mineral raw materials and in other industries, but also in secondary areas. Thus, visitors to FILTECH will also receive information about materials and consumables that are indispensable for the operation of plants for screening and classifying. Finally, the FILTECH topic of ventilation and air purification technology is also highly relevant, as clean air can be an effective measure for reducing the risk of infection by aerosol-borne viruses in all areas of companies. The event brings together numerous suppliers of ventilation and filtration technology who support plant operators with efficient solutions for production and all other operational areas.
Whether air purification or separation technology in quarries and sand pits: The fact that the demand for new products and services remains high is also reflected in the large number of exhibitors. The organizer is already expecting over 440 companies at FILTECH 2023 – more than ever before.
Personal exchange at the focus of the congress
Especially on the congress area of FILTECH visitors traditionally have the opportunity not only to experience current products and services live but also to find out about trends in research and development in the congress area. The FILTECH Scientific Advisory Board, chaired by Dr. Harald Anlauf (KIT) and Prof. Eberhard Schmidt (Bergische Universität Wuppertal), guarantees the high quality of all presentations: Experts from international universities, research institutions and companies review the submitted contribution proposals and compile a program that guarantees valuable information from all areas of the industry. The congress at the event is divided into units covering all relevant topics. Seven thematic areas will be in focus:
Testing, instrumentation, and control
Simulation and modeling
Product related processes
In addition, the congress at FILTECH 2023 will be dedicated to current industry trends such as selective separation, micro process technology, and nanofluidics, mist and droplet separation as well as biological exhaust gas cleaning with biofilters. On February 13, 2023, already one day before the opening of the exhibition area, two focused one-day courses will be held, which will also specifically address engineers, scientists, managers, and other technical personnel who need applied knowledge on topics related to solid-liquid separation and fine particle separation.
Separation and screening technology for safety and efficiency
In production, what counts above all is the quality, safety, and efficiency of the processes. But the safety of employees, the environment and plants must also always be guaranteed. Separation solutions specially developed for the harsh environment of mechanical processing technology for mineral raw materials support operators in all these challenges. They increase the service life of plants and equipment and ensure high performance.
At FILTECH, visitors from the mineral processing industry will find the right products and services for this purpose and can discuss current trends with experts. For successful planning of the visit, interested parties can find a list of exhibitors, an overview of the main topics and industries as well as the extensive conference program at filtech.de.
