Not only will this two-week project be a fantastic opportunity for the students to gain practical experience in the industry, but it will also provide Croft’s customers with chances to redesign their filters and improve their filtration performance.

Companies who wish to develop their filtration system can benefit greatly from this project as well as contributing to the development of young talent. They will have their filters customised to their system by Croft and the engineering students, who may even come up with an innovative design to resolve the customer’s filtration challenge and improve their filtration system processes.
