AFSlogo_icon-smallThe American Filtration and Separations (AFS) Society (Nashville, Tenn.; www.afssociety.org) will be holding the Oil, Gas and Chemicals Filtration & Separations Conference and Expo (www.spring.afssociety.org) in Houston on May 9–11, 2016. Focusing on both mechanical and chemical means to promote process separations, the conference will gather presentations on a variety of separation methods used in the oil-and-gas and petrochemicals sectors, such as filters, coalescers, membranes, cyclones and many more. Additionally, key subject areas will be given special focus, including produced-water treatment, industrial air purification and natural-gas processing. During the course of the conference, three plenary lectures will be offered, as well as short courses and specialized training sessions. In addition to the technical conference, the event will also feature an expo pavilion giving exhibitors an opportunity to showcase their products and services. The following is a selection of these exhibitors’ offerings.


Use these polypropylene tubes for filter supports or cages

Industrial Netting

Industrial Netting

This company’s range of extruded polypropylene tubes (photo) are available in nearly 100 configurations of diameter, wall thickness and open area, and are intended for use as center core supports or outer cages for cartridge filters. Several tubing options are greater than 0.2 in. thick for use in high-pressure environments. In addition to being resistant to chemicals and corrosion, some polypropylene tube models are also compliant with FDA regulations for food contact. Well-suited for air, liquid or gas separation, the tubes’ versatility and modularity for filter configurations can eliminate traditional assembly steps like screw fastening or welding. When compared with metal, the plastic has a lower density and a lighter weight, while still maintaining strength qualities. Furthermore, polypropylene is readily recyclable, which is another advantage for users. — Industrial Netting, Minneapolis, Minn.
