With the Filtration 2017 International Conference & Exposition less than a month away, engineers, product developers and business managers can now preview many of the product introductions and innovations that will be introduced from 11-12 October in Chicago.   

The Product Preview feature on the Filtration 2017 website includes new products that some of the more than 140 exhibitors will showcase at this year’s event at Chicago’s Navy Pier. “Excitement is mounting for Filtration 2017 and INDA is expecting a strong turnout of about 1,500 industry participants with a new earlier date and continued growth in the filtration segment,” organisers report.

Among the innovations that will be launched in air and liquid filtration are filter pockets that help lower energy consumption, multi-layer filters from new synthetic materials, filter assembly systems engineered for extreme duty performance and new intelligent equipment that makes pleats in heavy duty materials.
