IFTS Presents Technical Session at AFS Spring Conference

For the first time in four years, the American Filtration & Separations Society's (AFS) Conference was held in Minneapolis, Minnesota from May 6-9. The annual spring conference focused on filtration and separations in global markets.

Christophe Peuchot, Managing Director of  IFTS in Agen, France and President of IFTS, Inc. USA, Jerry Lynch, presented the technical session, "How to Compare Performances of Domestic Pools and Spas Filters." The presentation discussed how the absence of any technical data on the performances of filters to consumers and pool fitters is impacting the European pool filter manufacturers economy. IFTS, as a cooperative research center, has developed a new test method which is currently being studied by CEN TC 402.  


Lynch was also a member of a panel where he discussed separation technology, electro-mechanical design & build solutions for products, pilots and test systems for IFTS' sister company, Sigma Design.  


The annual AFS Fall Conference will be held in October in Cincinnati, Ohio and will be focused around the topic of Innovations in Fiber Media.  

Filter Test Stand Calibration Services

IFTS USA is pleased to offer annual calibration services for its

filter test stands in the US.  This includes calibrating flow,

temperature and pressure sensors using NIST-traceable equipment, typically to within 1% accuracy.  Utilizing its highly accurate equipment, IFTS field engineers can perform the calibration on site, with minimal downtime.  After performing the service, IFTS supplies a Certificate of Calibration, documenting the equipment used, their traceability and the calibration results.

The service results in a fine tuned, highly accurate test bench, one that meets quality requirements and boosts overall confidence with test results.  A calibrated filter test system ensures the reliability and repeatability of development testing, allowing manufacturers and end users alike to validate the performance of filters that protect their mission critical equipment and systems.
