Walker Filtration Student Chemist Flourishes During University Placement

PUBLISHED Thursday, April 12 2018

In September Walker Filtration welcomed Leeds University Chemistry student, Thomas Brown, to our Head Office in Washington, Tyne and Wear to complete a one-year industry placement. Thomas’ placement is within the technical department, working on several projects which involve various areas of the business. As Thomas approaches the last quarter of his placement, we caught up with him to discuss his progress.

‘I am thoroughly enjoying my time at Walker Filtration, it has been invaluable to put into practise the theory based learning I have acquired from university. The company has allowed me to work with other teams outside of the technical department on cross functional tasks, as well as leading my own project on microfibre technologies and the chemistry involved in filtration media. I was delighted to contribute to the research and development of one of the core components of Walker Filtration’s product base, and feel that I have made a real impact within the company.”
