Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has spent the majority of his career working with clients where three disciplines were required to properly serve those clients: (1) a knowledge of the filtration process, whether dust collection or liquid filtration, (2) a thorough knowledge of the client's product and processes and (3) a knowldge of filtration fabrics, their application and suitability to solve the client's problem or meet the client's needs. In addition, Expert has a good knowledge and experience relating to the maintenance required for the filtration equipment which uses the filter media. Observing, understanding and applying his experience to these individual client projects has resulted in a very broad based knowledge of dust collection, liquid process filtration, filtering equipment and the filter media suitable for these applications.

Expert has also worked closely with filter vendors to develop special and/or custom filter media to meet unique or one-of-a-kind requirements. One example is the development of unique needle felts for vacuum and pressure liquid filtration where felts had previously not been used in any significant quantities.
