The SrATcTORY GENIULAL METrrTI- of Meta- fUters (1929), Limited, was held yesterday at Winchester House, Old Broad-street, London. SUt WVILLLAM RtEGLNALD HALr (the chair- ua,n) presided. The SzCar,a&y (Mr. A. H. Parker) having read the notice convening the meeting, The U'lsAam&N said :-Ladies and gentle- men,-It is, possibly, not generally realized that the operatiou of filtration enters into the laanufacture and production of practically aU mnanufactured products. In manly eaees, filtra- tiou is tho most important of all steps inciden'. to the productioni of a fine product, since de- pendent upon the efficiency with wihich this process is carriedl out will be first the appear- ance, anid secondly the purity, and also, maybe, the distinctivo taste, keeping qualities and general exec!lence of the products. Let Inc point out that filters are essential, aniongst others, for water, beer. sugar, tnilk, varnish, wvine, acids, fats, alkalis, organic liquids, lubricating oil, boiler feed water, and in the manufacture of artificial silk, and that the ecikni(.ucy of the filter will determinie the quality of the tfial product. leiltrration to-day is being carried out by filters of various trnes and of mauy shapes and sizes. bho in practically all a filtering body of cloth, pulp, ur other lior(oUs material is e-i- ployed. The uise of these midii involves con- sideiab!e operating labour an.l expense, especi. allw where clothi is used, owing to the difficulty in keeeping the cloth clenso and frc from h:oles. Now, your compatny's patents cover a new system of filtration in nhich neither cloth nor pulp is required; consequently the attendant .lifficulties when usiig these miedia are avoided, labour is economnized, and reniewals are reduced to practically nothing. These must all be very a'-tractive features frorn the point of view of filter users ',ut it is niot the ease of work- ing, chcap cost of operating, and insignificant renewals which appeal so niuch as the technical efficiency oi the actual tiltration w^hen using the Metafilter. The field for filtration is practicaliv world- Vvidle; manufactures are not corfined to Great Blritain alone, but are carried out iu every vivi-hz. tlcotntry. The company's patents ron in cvery important courtry in the world. It will thus bc seen that the nmarket for filters of our type is practically inexhaustible.
