The American Filtration & Separations Society, Minneapolis, has made several technology changes to enhance its educational position in the industry.

The association has completed its monthly e-mail newsletter, covering local chapters and education resources, including the "One Minute Filtration" column that summarizes filtration technology.

AFS finished upgrading its web site,, which includes "Ask the Expert," in which individuals submit questions that are then distributed to AFS' list of experts, who will provide feedback.

The group plans to sponsor web seminars. For a nominal fee, novices and journeymen will be able to register and attend one-hour classes. The target audience for the web seminars is specifiers, buyers and users of filters and filtration and separation equipment, along with manufacturers who supply filters and separation products.
