The main uses of filtration media

Several industries use filtration media to separate particles and fluid in the workplace and at work sites. Depending on the industry, the given fluid being separated can be a liquid, gas or supercritical fluid (i.e., a fluid that is without distinct liquid or gas phases), and the filtration media that’s employed consequently varies. The goal, […]
