Researchers Develop Clog-Resistant Filtration System Inspired by 3D Printed Fish Mouths

Researchers Develop Clog-Resistant Filtration System Inspired by 3D Printed Fish Mouths | Biomimicry | Scoop.it
Filters can be found all around us, from our cars to our coffee makers. But they have one universal quality: they get clogged eventually. But a 3D printed solution could be just around the corner, as the Professor of Biology and ichthyologist Laurie Sanderson from the College of William and Mary has a patent pending for a bio-inspired alternative. Learning from the mouth structure of filter-feeding fish (using 3D printed models), she has developed a new mechanism that prevents filter clogging by trapping particles in vortices in the fluids.
