Ships are a Huge Collection of Filters

"Filtration Challenges in the Marine Industry"

Presented at American Filtration & Separations Society Conference


Rik van Hemmen was asked by the American Filtration & Separations Society to present a paper on filtration issues aboard ships at their annual meeting.


This was a novel question and novel questions tend to arrive at novel answers.  When Rik was through, he felt that ships are simply a huge collection of filters and many of those filters are on the cutting edge.  The end of the paper proposes a solution that may be lighthearted but actually points at something that we as naval architects and marine engineers may not always realize when we design our ships.
