The (new) Filterkonsortium at KIT was founded in the summer of 2018 by leading companies from the fields of fiber and media production, assembly, plant engineering & measurement technology with the aim of jointly meeting the challenges of an innovative and environmentally friendly dust filter technology with a focus on surface filters.
To this end, the members consciously contribute their wealth of experience in application, technology and science.
Within the consortium, they pursue the joint scientific and technical exchange as well as the cooperation in the development of standards and guidelines. Current: ongoing updating of the VDI standard 3677 sheet 1.
The central topics are the reduction of particle emissions and the increase of the energy efficiency of surface filters through a deeper understanding of the processes in and around the filter.
The consortium has set itself the goal of advancing the state of the art in these areas through joint pre-competitive R&D projects.
The essential findings for a sustainable and technically meaningful filter operation are carried out by the members (among other things by publications) into the industrial & scientific community.
