About Us


The American Filtration and Separations Society is a technical, educational nonprofit organization started in 1987 to provide a forum for exchange of information among engineers, scientists, and technologists in all areas of the fluid/particle separation field.  AFS is managed by a Board of Directors consisting of 12 elected directors, 6 officers and the presidents of all active chapters.

The AFS Society has predicated its existence on the dissemination of information, education and the encouragement of research.  Strong emphasis is given to both liquid and gas separation.  Perhaps the major thrust is on filtration processes involving the use of permeable barrier to effect separation.  Other concepts receive careful study, especially procedures involving the particles from liquid by non-barrier techniques.
