Historically, filtration has been perceived as a solution to a problem.  More specifically, once the problem has manifest itself, a solution is subsequently sought.. which generally results in the applied removal of the troublesome contaminant from a given fluid.  Instead, it is suggested that there are specific instances where the prevention of contaminants may be a more viable solution.  The presentation focuses on the common problem of bacteria growth as a result of particle accumulation. Identifying the contributing characteristics that create the bacteria, technology in introduced which may help prevent its occurrence, thereby avoiding the subsequent need for means to remove or neutralize bacterial contaminants.  Application concepts, illustrations, case stories and technical formulae for applying this technology will be introduced and reviewed.
