SOS to Filter Manufacturers: Oil-free Air in the Aircraft Cabin and Flight Deck
Judith Murawski, Industrial Hygienist, AFA-CWA, AFL-CIO

The aviation industry has recognized the health and safety hazards associated with exposure to oil fumes that can contaminate the ventilation air on aircraft since the 1950s, but has done little to prevent exposure. Further, aviation regulations intended to address exposure to contaminated bleed air on aircraft are vague and not enforced. More recently, though, there has been a growing interest in filtration options for the bleed air supply on aircraft. The author will describe how oil fumes can contaminate the aircraft air supply system, the chemicals of concern, the basic requirements of bleed air filtration, and some of the technical and regulatory challenges.

Filtering Petroleum Based Liquids
Andrew Shepard, Director, Global Market Management, Hollingsworth & Vose Company

New vehicle emission, stack emissions, and fuel economy regulations around the world are changing media requirements. This presentation will focus on the continued need for higher efficiency, longer life, and lower energy usage when filtering petroleum-based liquids. If you are interested in complex fine fiber composites for petroleum-based liquid filtration, then this is a must see presentation.

Diesel Transportation and Equipment Filtration – New Opportunity for Design
Christine Stanfel, Ph.D., Director of Engineering, North America, Freudenberg Filtration Technologies, L.P.

Filtration requirements in the diesel transportation and equipment segment have become increasingly stringent in response to regulatory agency targets for health and environmental protection. Engine and refining technology changes necessary for emission compliance have altered the nature of contaminants. Current challenges to filtration in the diesel transportation and equipment segment will be reviewed within the context of media and filter design requirements for successful separation.
