Welcome to A&SoF. A&SoF is an e-newsletter, managed by BHS, with its sole purpose to enhance the filtration knowledge of the marketplace to solve actual plant problems. This is year number 5 for the newsletter and we have reached over 48,000 engineers worldwide with very interesting feedback.
In keeping with our mission of providing technical information to the market from many resources, BHS will begin a filtration "blog" in June. We are looking for ideas for a name of the blog…your suggestions are welcomed. Thanks.
The focus of this issue is "Thinking Like Sherlock Holmes." Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are fictional characters of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Process engineers who live in the real-world can learn many things from the two of them for solving process filtration problems.
In a recent article in the International New Your Times, Karen Jones writes "Many of the techniques used by the Sherlock Holmes character all those years ago are now real techniques used today by forensic scientists." There is also a new book by Maria Konnikova "Mastermind-How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes" (Viking Penguin (USA) Inc. 2013).
Following these two abstracts is a technical article that will be presented by BHS at the upcoming 2014 AIChE Spring Meeting in New Orleans, LA. The article "THINKING LIKE SHERLOCK HOLMES FOR PROCESS FILTRATION TECHNOLOGY SELECTION" is summarized below.
Finally, BHS and A&SoF are growing again! Please see the lab and pilot filtration testing opportunity described in the sidebar. This will be an important benefit to current and future BHS clients.
I hope that you find A&SoF useful and informative. Your comments, ideas and suggestions for future issues are much appreciated. You can now follow A&SoF on Facebook ; please visit our page and soon on our "blog." If you missed any of the issues, please click on the following link: A&SoF, to view them. We look forward to your continued input and wish all of our readers a successful and healthy 2014.
