Urea Filter Testing

Based on industry demands, IFTS has developed a method for testing urea filters.

A vigorous experimental program lasting over two years, IFTS developed a method of continuous filtration which does not block the injection pumps of the solution in the urea filter.

IFTS’ proven filter testing expertise can benefit companies who need an urea filter tested quickly and precisely.
