Innovation Source: From phenomenological investigations towards industrial applications. Production of CCV filters for automotive industry
On the 19th June, 2019 the eighth open lecture under a series of “Innovation source” was held at the Institute of Physical Chemistry PAS (IPC). Prof. Leon Gradoń was invited to the Institute by the CREATE Project Coordinator and the ERA Chair holder to deliver the lecture entilted “From phenomenological investigations towards industrial applications. Production of CCV filters for automotive industry”.
Professor Leon Gradoń is a specialist in the field of chemical engineering who has intensively cooperated with chemical industry in Poland and abroad. It resulted in establishment of a numerous of small companies, which use Leon Gradoń’s technological solution in filtration and separation, and inhalation drug delivery. He is the author and co-author of several types designed “easy breath” dust-masks (produced by Secura BC Inc. with rate of production 1 mln/year), liquid filters (produced by Amazon Filters Ltd, England) - used in water treatment, food, electronics and fine chemical industries, and filter used for protection of nanomembranes during the oil production in the offshore facilities. Recently his solutions were used in the construction of the technological line for production of the CCV coalescers used in Diesel engines by the largest producer of such engines – Cummins Company (USA) with production ability 3 mln filters/year.
